In a shot, the video of a toddler singing there “ain’t no homos going to make it to Heaven” went around the blogosphere. Now the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle Church in Greensburg, Indiana has issued a statement on their website.
The Pastor and members of Apostolic Truth Tabernacle do not condone, teach, or practice hate of any person for any reason. We believe and hope that every person can find true Bible salvation and the mercy and grace of God in their lives. We are a strong advocate of the family unit according to the teachings and precepts found in the Holy Bible. We believe the Holy Bible is the Divinely-inspired Word of God and we will continue to uphold and preach that which is found in scripture.
So, what possible reason is there to say that gay people will literally be tortured forever, without this being at all hateful? I’m genuinely curious. Let’s get creative here - surely there must be some kind of rationale for this!
