“Ain’t No Homos Gonna Make it to Heaven”: Indiana Toddler’s Homophobic Church Performance Video Goes Viral
He can’t be more than four or five years old. But the toddler in this shockingly homophobic video sings it loud, sings it proud and sings it to thundering, whooping applause:
“I know the Bible’s right, somebody’s wrong…ain’t no homos gonna make it to heaven.”
“That’s my boy!” a man proudly shouts from somewhere among the pews as the raucous ovation continues. As the child steps down from the altar, he is high-fived by congregants as he returns to his seat.
He must have been coached. How else could such a young child even know what a homosexual is, or to call one a “homo?”
The unidentified baby bigot’s church has been identified by Freethought Blogs as the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle in Greensburg, Indiana. The pastor there is Jeff Sangl, who can be seen smiling and laughing approvingly as the kid sings.
Here is the church’s contact information:

This shameful incident is but the latest in a series of homophobic rants caught on video in recent weeks. Earlier this month, North Carolina pastor Sean Harris urged fathers of effeminate boys to beat the gay out them.
“Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch,” he told his congregants at Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville. “You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male.”
Days later, Jane Skrovota delivered an epic homophobic rant at a public meeting on an anti-LGBT discrimination ordinance in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Two weeks ago, North Carolina pastor Charles L. Worley called for gays and lesbians to be imprisoned in concentration camps so they could all die off.
“Build a great, big, large fence– 150 or 100 mile long– put all the lesbians in there,” he said to his flock at the Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden. “Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals and have that fence electrified so they can’t get out… and you know what, in a few years, they’ll die out… do you know why? They can’t reproduce!”
And just today, an audio recording of a sermon delivered by pastor Curtis Knapp of the New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kansas surfaced in which Knapp calls on the US government to kill homosexuals, as prescribed in the Bible.
“If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death,” he said, reading from Leviticus 20.
“They should be put to death,” Knapp declared. “‘Oh, so you’re saying we should go out and start killing them, no?’ — I’m saying the government should. They won’t, but they should,” he added.
As author Anne Rice noted in response to the most recent hateful video, “In this country, Christians can teach toddlers to hate and to persecute, and we, through the automatic tax exemption for churches, foot the bill.”
