I think it is sad that people teach their children to hate others and if they were honestly Christian they would teach their children to love others no matter what. The bible does teach that it is wrong to miss treat others and to love others no matter what.

Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. :? p***e o* s**t parents are why there's still so much hate in the world today. Hate isn't innate, it's taught. That little boy wasn't born hating anyone and it's sad beyond belief that he's learning too. :evil:

Now that I think about it, I loved the church's views on same sex marriage actually. That's quite a moving gesture to prove a point. Its always profound to me when I see church's so straight forward and in your face about supporting marriage equality. You so often hear about these radicals opposing gay marriage like WBBC but you don't as often hear about church's so unabashedly supporting same sex marriage. With so much stigma surrounding the christian churchs, would being so up front about tolerance make a dent in the stigma? No, but its refreshing to hear about it.

Haha, did anyone watch the video and hear the guy who walked by and said, "his mommy didn't hug him I guess." and another who said, "Noisy kid, ain't he?" about the boy? I lol'd.

And the cameraman. WTF? I'd like to slap the shit out of him.


It's weird....the kid looks and sounds EXACTLY like my cousin. O_o

That is great about the church's views but I do not think parents should teach their children to hate others because of how other people choose to live their lives.

It is. And it's a shame we don't hear about it more. I am agnostic to put it mildly. However I don't judge those who believe. I cannot stand those who push their beliefs onto those around them. If a person finds love let them have it... stop trying to think of reasons why they cant.

No definitely not! Churches need to put themselves out there more about their tolerance like this one did and parents need to sit down and shut up more if they choose to pollute their poor children's essentially non biased innocent minds. Its such a gift, the way children have no malevolent thoughts, why ruin it?

The church had made their stand. Anyone who stands by their decision should stay with the church. Anyone disagreeing should leave the church.



I don't know anyone who is truly "homophobic". That is an actual fear of homosexuals and ...well...does that seriously exist?



The guy with the camera should grow a pair and be doing that, himself, instead of coaching his kid...or A kid. Poor taste.

I agree! I hated that when the kid went quiet he kept going, "Preach it! Preach!" Why can't the grown man preach? Leave the kids out of it.

Amen to that! (pun intended LOL)... It just gets me all hairy when I see stuff like this. "Hey that church is different, lets take our little boy out on easter morning and have him scream damnation." People are just bizarre. If I saw that I would want to give him cocoa and peeps and send him to his car and scream the parents out.
