He could be saying anything as far as I'm concerned. I couldn't understand a word of it. He had better diction back when he was a toddler.


GIVE ME A CHILD… — 13 Comments

  1. No one should be allowed to preach until they’re old enough to understand what they’re preaching about. Poor little parrot.

  2. Wondering what makes us think the older versions are no less parrots that don’t really understand what they’re preaching about – it’s almost a warped form of performance art…

  3. I joke about it because there’s little else I can do, but, like Mimi, I hate for that child to be in that environment. It’s child abuse, really, and, like all child abuse – as renzmqt pointed out – it’s because the parents grew up with it.

  4. And when he is old enough, he will believe and swear that the world is only a few thousand years old and he will vote for the Tea Party! Sad, sad, sad.

  5. Yup, I sure do remember Marjoe Gortner.

    There is a segment of the Pentecostal world that encourages the notion of child preachers. I guess the theory is that if you have The Anointing (TM), it’s bound to first show up when you’re little.

    Personally, I find the whole phenomenon not a little bizarre.
