A sampling of the hate-filled lyrics: “The Bible is right, somebody’s wrong. Romans 1 and 27, ain’t no homo gonna make it to heaven.”
The congregation jumped to their feet for a standing ovation and you can hear a proud man shout in the background, “That’s my boy!” It’s upsetting on many levels.
The Apostolic Truth Tabernacle in Greensburg, Indiana, where this incident reportedly took place, today issued a statement on their website. “5/30/12 — 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.”
