        my exact thoughts. I couldn't even watch all of it. Clapping, smiling adults thinking it's cute. What sick minds, and the poor child being brainwashed at such an impressionable age.

          I agree. I wouldn't be part of a church that taught hate and intolerance instead of love and acceptance.

      Anytime I start doubting my parenting skills something like this emerges and makes me feel like Dr. Spock.

      If anyone in my family... or really the world... tried to teach my child a song like this I think I would quite literally beat them to death.

      That's no more child abuse than allowing a child to hear somebody say that homosexuality is A-ok.

      So....yes, it is close to child abuse!  Whereas, deliberately coaching a child into believeing it's okay to perform gay acts IS child abuse! 
      However, what the child said is true.  The problem is that there was no message of forgiveness following the child's little ditty.  No message about how becoming born-again makes a person a "new creature in Christ".   Any good church would've actually spoken the Gospel surrounding the child's statement.  Instead, there was judgement and condemnation without the qualifying factor of hope, repentance, and forgiveness attached.   Now, maybe there WAS more to the message from that pulpit later;  we dunno, do we?  Because the video ended there.

      Ron, really, you should check out some actually decent Christian churches or sermons instead of pulling up the freaky ones.  Be careful, though, 'cause there are plenty on the other end of the spectrum (minor and mega-churches) that will tell you there is no sin; those are just as damaging to a child's (or adults') psyche as is the one you posted.

        The same is true for unrepentant (i.e. still remarried) Christians in their second (third, fourth, etc.) marriage. I wonder why children like this one are never taught to sing that? There are far more remarried people than gay people.

          Mr. Judgemental, if I really thought you'd try to understand anything about that, I'd try explaining it again.   But not today.  'Cause you're still bent on condemning instead of handing out hope to people in sin and to Christians.

            No, I will continue to point out your double standard. Remarried people can continue to sin but can be considered repentant, but gay people must permanently renounce homosexuality (as if that were possible) in order to be saved.

            Note that your beliefs don't have any support in actual scripture. You just believe this to be true because you're remarried, and not gay, yourself.

                    Depends on your interpretation, I guess. I've been told by plenty of Christians that Jews go to hell unless they accept Jesus. They might be right. Or they might be wrong. Naturally, I prefer the Jewish view that everyone ends up in the same place.

Now, after this admission I am going to take my kids and flee the country in order to avoid being prosecuted for child abuse. Oh, and I'm an atheist to boot. I will no doubt burn for eternity

              I'm sure Brenda could probably find some scriptural support for her double standard if she looked hard enough. Therein lies one of the major problems with religion and why it's a bad idea to use a holy book as a foundation for morality. Instead of having to provide a rational basis for their moral choices, believers too often feel they can just pull something from scripture and that is considered justification enough. The fact that people glean different meanings from the same passages or selectively choose one passage over another just muddies the moral waters further. How can you have a reasoned debate with someone who relies on "God said.." for a moral defence?


              Those little kids are something else. They remind me of those little blond twins who sang about white supremacy to an enthusiastic audience of neo-nazis. Religion is not the only fanatical ideology to breed hatred.

                I can assure you Brenda has no interest in dealing with scripture that she does not find convenient to her socially-conservative political views. We've seen that played over and over and over again, and she's not alone.

                You're right, though: any form of ideology or dogma can be abused. I do enjoy pointing out the double standards and hypocrisy, though; the more that hypocritical double standards are brought to light, the less of a voice that those who use them have in the public square of ideas. Sunshine is the best disinfectant, after all.

                  Well, that's really the point I was making about Biblical morality The same could be said for those who have progressive views and try to whitewash or ignore the fact that the Bible has homophobic passages and other suspect moral directives.

                  When you try and use a holy book as a moral justification for something instead of rational argument, you are apt end up in a moral quagmire.

                    But they *want* to eat bacon. And get divorced and remarried.

                    They never want to "go gay" (because they can't anyway) so it suddenly becomes the cheap road to piety if you act as if homosexuality is the only sin worth talking about. If homosexuality weren't the ultimate evil in their worldview, how many preachers and evangelists would be good people?

        You say that the message is basically OK, then you say the church is freaky.  Are you saying it's OK to be freaky?

        I know of a church at the opposite end of the spectrum, one that you would certainly hate because they preach tolerance, inclusion, thoughtfulness..., that is located within 100 miles of the church in this video.

        The hate-spewing church is in Greensburg, Indiana, the other is in Camby, Indiana - Fairfield Friends Meeting.  The pastor at Fairfield, Philip Gulley, is also the author of several fine books about faith, family, and life in small town Indiana.

          Well, thank you Ron for warning me about the Camby Church.  I've actually driven by there before and wondered if it's a good church.   Now I know just to keep on drivin'.   Unless, of course, you have witnessed about it wrongly;  I can safely assume that your definition of tolerance may actually mean something else to that preacher; he could be simply exercising patience in the hopes that you'll finally accept Christ.   So, I can't make a snap judgement of him since I've never conversed with him.

          By the way, I've had the experience of visiting a church near there that's similar to your description of the Greensburg one.   An awesome, awesome sermon that suddenly turned nasty on the issue of homosexuality.  That man, like the little kid in your video, spoke the truth, too, but then neglected to spread the Good News of repentance and forgiveness.   I won't tell you where that church is, because it's just as bad as you describe the Camby one as being.   So, there ya go----the spectrum is broad, just like the road to hell.
          Maybe you'll actually one day take interest in a Church that teaches the correct Way.   But I ain't holdin' my breath.

          Well, that was a few minutes near-wasted.
          That preacher only mentioned the Lord one time that I recall, and that was at the end of the spiel about how cool the pews are and how his Quaker church "reels in" people and then mocks visitors!  No wonder people don't go back, with that cocky judgemental attitude he exhibits!
          From just that video, one inevitably draws the conclusion that the guy's trying to be a mix of stand-up comedian and advocate for Quakerism (or whatever religion/denomination that is).

          And nothing said about homosexuality. He hinted at that I guess when he said he's liberal and sits on the "Left hand of God".  What an admission!  He might as well have just said he sits at the hand of Satan!   lol  And the sin of pride he demoted to the definition of "pleasure" for the sake of making him and his church look good!  LOL.

          What the hay was that video supposed to show me, Ron??   
          The only redeeming value that was evident might be that it's possible that that little snippet of church snobbery isn't all there is.......maybe there's some actual worship that goes on?  But who would possibly even know from that video?!
          Are you now gonna recommend that I buy his books or go visit his church to find out more?    Not likely.  The guy mocked people who bring their own Bibles to church there!

          Oh my.   Please tell me you don't go to that church, Ron?  Or if you do, that you're not under the spell of his snobby personality?

          I can tell you, from having visited lots of different churches in my life, and from having seen the results of "churches" like Jim Jones's and such, that that (from that video's spiel) church is more likely to be part of a cult than a place to freely worship God.    Seriously.  If a person isn't careful, they can get swayed by any preacher who doesnt' give a whit what comes outta his mouth.  I guess it's the boldness with which they speak......that's the liberal way;  and people think that just because someone says something with a voice of "authority" that it's right and true.   Not so at all.   All voices should be tested, weighed on the balance scale of Biblical authority.   That's sometimes hard for people, especially unBelivers, because they don't take the time to take the Bible in context.  And the context of the entire Bible is that there is sinful mankind in need of the Savior,  who forgives all sin upon true repentance.   His mercy is broad, enduring "forever";  but the road one must walk is strait, narrow;  the only way anyone at all can even walk it is to carry their cross onto it and have Jesus there with them.  'Cause we're gonna veer off that road time after time if we don't hold onto His hand.  The only way anyone can even ENTER onto that road is to recognize that we have sin that needs to be forgiven.

          By all discerning accounts so far, Ron, that Quaker preacher is not your "friend".  I doubt he's anybody's friend, if indeed that segment of video is any clue to his overall personality or preaching style.

                  I don't condemn judge and belittle "99% of humanity".  Are you delirious?  What does "99% of humanity" even mean?  To what "99% of humanity" are you referring to?

                  That man IS judgemental and prideful.  Why would anyone want to go hear him mock anyone at all?    UNLESS, of course, that snippet of video wasn't representative of his overall thinking.
                  I'll tell you, that's one reason I refused to keep going to another church near there.  I told you this before.  The Pastor of a church gave an awesome awesome sermon, but veered it over into mocking gays.  He tried to cover it up by also mocking drunks and thieves.  But the damage was done.  He may have been trying to do the right thing, but he didn't do the right thing.  He told the congregation that if anyone didn't like what he said, there was the door.  Now, he could've actually shown some consideration for the fact that there are many sinners in the world in need of Salvation, welcomed anyone and everyone into church meetings and told them that ANY sin can be forgiven upon repentance.  But he didn't.  He deliberately shunned homosexuals.  ...Could be that he had heard about the incident in another State where gays went into a church meeting and deliberately insulted the church and threw fliers around and had to have the police called....who knows?  That kind of homosexual activism doesn't belong in any place, especially a church.  That would make any Pastor want to avoid that stuff.   So...actually, it is that bold liberal kind of action that attempts to deter even a homosexual who wants to come to God from even considering going to church.  And then is when preachers like your Quaker preacher swoop in and say hey everything's okay, come into this church, we'll accept you like you are 'cause the Bible is wrong anyway, so come change the lightbulbs in our church and wind the clock and you'll be A-okay.   Well, if you wanna sell your soul for the opportunity to wind the clock in that church, go ahead.  But if you want to actually find the Way to get your life in order and find true Peace,  look for a church that tells you there's an altar where you can meet the Lord, repent, and receive the forgiveness that He died on the Cross to obtain for you. 
                  There should never be condemnation spoken from a pulpit without showing how to get out from under the condemnation!

        Allowing a child to learn that homosexulality is natural in the animal kingdom (which includes humans, by the way) is NOT child abuse. Drilling the idea of a man made god in their head since infancy is another story. Brainwashing can be a form of child abuse. To tell the child to accept this, and other Biblical nonsense, without question with the threat of death is unacceptable.

    "If the church were Christian, Jesus would be a model for living, not an object of worship.

    If the church were Christian, affirming our potential would be more important than condemning our brokenness.

    If the church were Christian, reconciliation would be valued over judgment.

    If the church were Christian, gracious behavior would be more important than right belief.

    If the church were Christian, inviting questions would be more important than supplying answers.

    If the church were Christian, encouraging personal exploration would be more important than communal uniformity.

    If the church were Christian, meeting needs would be more important than maintaining institutions.

    If the church were Christian, peace would be more important than power.

    If the church were Christian, it would care more about love and less about sex.

    If the church were Christian, this life would be more important than the afterlife.

    In the end, what I'm hoping for is a church a little less full of itself, and a little more full of love. It wouldn't take much, for love and grace and kindness have a way of multiplying. We can start with just a few bones of it, and watch it build into something so vast it boggles the mind -- a divine extrapolation, if you will."

      If you are asking me, I will tell you this. This is hell, but it is also heaven. Open mind, closed mind. Open eyes, closed eyes. Open ears, closed ears. These are the same keys which Jesus gave to Peter. I just gave them to you. May they serve you well.

      Of course they are going to defend their position, however ridiculous their position is in reality. It's pathetically disgusting.

      If TRUTH is what they claim to be what they are teaching, then not only have the Preacher of this pathetic church deluded adults, but are purposely teaching division among others who live within society.

      So much for teaching Grace of a G/god.

    Breaking Story:  The kid was actually an actor working on behalf of a local atheist group.  When he sang "ain't no homos..." he meant homo sapiens.  When these morons finally figure out what they were applauding...

    What'd that kid say?
    Ain't no Hamas gonna make it into heaven?
    Now we're gonna have a whole bunch of unemployed suicide bombers refusing to work.
    And of course that will bring our unemployment numbers up even higher.
    Oh wait -- that's the plan!

    Just another layer of the anti-Obama plot by the far right. And shows how low they will stoop. Using a poor innocent little kid in an racist campaign.

    Those (self) righteous Christians who make a big fuss about homosexuality.
    They'll make it to Heaven on the basis of their faith, right?
    But will they be turned away because they are really homos and God rejects homos from Heaven?
    Or because they lied about it?

          Like I said, Ron, if what you say is true about it, then that's not even a church;  it's a cult.
          So...whatever.

          I can tell you this---there are some good churches in that area (just as there are in any area), dwindling though the numbers may be of any good church.   Since you found that one, surely you can Google all of them and take your pick.  But indeed, you sought out the one that's "inclusive" as you put it.   So you should be happy as a lark, right?   No need for us to converse further about this.
