Remember the video of the four-year-old boy singing “Ain’t no homos gonna make it to heaven”?
Initially, when the video was posted, no one knew which church that was.
A guy named Mike figured it out, though. The most amazing part about it? Anyone with basic Internet-stalking skills could’ve done it. Morgan Watkins of The Indianapolis Star explains:
So he decided to find the video’s source, starting with the user who posted it, Funnyman1972. A search of the user’s videos revealed he was from Indiana and his children’s names.
An extensive online search yielded an AOL email address, which triggered a result on Spokeo.com. The name from Spokeo provided a result on Veromi.com for a 40-year-old man from Greensburg. His birth year, 1972, coincided with the username Funnyman1972.
Mike matched the name to the Facebook profile of a Greensburg man whose friends list included children with the names mentioned in the user’s videos.
One of his family members had ‘Liked’ the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle on Facebook.
Digging into Google, he found interior photos of the church, and they matched the room shown on the video.
“It was like, ‘Bingo,’ ” Mike said.
