I was raised in conservative rural Oklahoma, attended church at least three times a week from infancy until I left for college, and then attended a private Baptist university for two years. I am well aware of how most fundamentalist Christians feel about the gays. I eventually grew numb to it, then moved to the West Coast and escaped it. I decided the best way to move forward with life and not be completely jaded by all the hypocrisy and hatred that religious fundamentalism entails was to take on a live and let live attitude.
Then I see garbage like this. This is outright child abuse. This boy has no idea what homosexuality is (or any sexuality, for that matter). He has no clue about the intricacies of biblical interpretation. He and his family likely know no out gays (I say no “out” gays because there are scores of closet-case gays running around deeply conservative/religious areas, and they are usually the most vocal and hateful).
He is a child, still learning about the world around him. He should have a sense of wonder and optimism about life, an imagination, and a desire to learn and grow. That is all being stifled by the hateful, bigoted, hypocritical adults who surround him.
The applause and cheers in this video should make you nauseated, as they did me.
And they claim gays indoctrinate…
