Pastor Jeff Sangl and his wife left town without telling anyone after a clip of a 5-year-old boy singing an anti-gay song at their church went viral.

The disturbing clip, allegedly filmed at the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle Church in Greensburg, Indiana, shows a young child singing: “I know the Bible's right, somebody's wrong; Romans one, and twenty-seven; Ain't no homos gonna make it to Heaven.”

The boy gets a standing ovation from congregants and is urged to perform an encore. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

The church addressed the controversy the video has created in a statement posted on its website.

“The Pastor and members of Apostolic Truth Tabernacle do not condone, teach, or practice hate of any person for any reason,” the statement reads. “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.”

According to, Sangl and other church members have allegedly received death threats and the pastor and his wife left town for vacation without telling anyone where they were headed.
