Well, ain’t that just a kick in the teeth?

What would Jesus do?

What would Jesus do? (Photo credit: duncan)

What would have happened if, when the little boy was finished singing his “ain’t no homos going to heaven” song, one of those adults had been brave enough to face all of those cheering adults and tell them that their behavior wasn’t imitating the behavior of Jesus?  Would any of them have listened?  Would any of them have felt shame in their own behavior?  Would any of them have questioned what they were teaching the children in their church?

Being the cynical liberal thinker that I am, I kind of doubt it.  I’m afraid they may have shouted him down.  That they may have insulted him or even done physical harm to him.  And isn’t that a sad thing to think about people who are supposed to be trying to live as Jesus would live?  I always wonder if people who behave that way understand how they turn so many people off of Christianity by that type of behavior…

It makes me sad to see this type of behavior from anyone, but especially from people who claim to follow Jesus’ teachings.  They should know better.  Perhaps they should take the time to sit down, think things over and ask themselves, “honestly, what would Jesus do?”…the Jesus I know wouldn’t teach children to hate and he most certainly wouldn’t stand there and cheer when a child (or anyone, for that matter) sang a song expressing that hatred…I think he would have been saddened by what happened in that church that day…I know I was.

  1. This is proof that Satan is still at work. What’s the saying about “one bad apple?” We are to strive to be more like Jesus and Satan doesn’t like that. It’s a shame that this was dealt in this way. We are to hate the sin but love the sinner.

  2. I’m not familiar with what you are referring to, but it breaks my heart to hear about it.

    • It was just a YouTube video of a little bitty 4-year-old boy singing this song in church…and it just made me so sad that they were teaching him that it was okay to hate anyone…a kid that age doesn’t know anything about things like that…just really disturbing to watch the adults in that church cheering this tiny kid for singing a song filled with hate…

  3. I couldn’t agree more with you! I also can’t believe there’s so many bad things being said about Muslims and all that, while Christians are really no better.
    It’s just a sad world… as the quote I once read…
    “Religion gives hope in a world destroyed by religion”
