They have a very finicky definition of "love"

Remember the video that came out where a child was singing lyrics disparaging LGBT people to raucous applause from the congregation?  You know, the one where

Church members can be seen applauding and cheering the toddler as he sings the anti-gay verse — “I know the Bible’s right, somebody’s wrong- Romans 1 and 27, ain’t no homo going to make it to heaven” — with one person shouting, “That’s my boy!”

Well, the church is getting some much-deserved grief over it, which prompted them to say…

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

Tough choice: believe this or believe my own eyes that watched the video.

If Jesus is going to demand his followers lie, he should’ve at least had the foresight to have made them better at it.
