A video has emerged of a young boy signing “Ain’t no homos gonna make it to Heaven” before a church congregation, whereby the congregation claps and hoots and makes him perform it again.
In the video (h/t Matthew Paul Turner) the child sings:
“The Bible’s right, somebody’s wrong.
The Bible’s right, somebody’s wrong.
Romans one, twenty six and twenty seven;
Ain’t no homos gonna make it to Heaven.”
Watch the video below:
Given that LGBT people are so often maligned by the accusation that they are out to recruit children, this video is especially abhorrent. Other commentators have labelled this a form of child abuse. Indeed, the child, who appears to be about four or five, will have no idea of the meaning behind the clobber passages he is referencing. As such, he has been trotted out to perform like a parrot, stripping him of all dignity. That he has so obviously been taught this song by some opportunistic adults, who will almost certainly profess to be Christian, is twice as damning of them and this particular, ugly brand of so-called Christianity that seems to celebrate its labelling of others as sinners and rejoices in the notion of them receiving eternal damnation.
This comes after a number of scandals, one involving an evangelical pastor advocating what amounts to child abuse to stop kids being gay and another pastor saying gay and lesbian people should be put in internment camps.
Care2 is aware of the likely origins of this video and is currently attempting to verify in which church it was recorded. Updates to this story will appear below.
