Applauds to Angus Jones! In this generation, people will attack anyone who tries to exalt God, especially a TV show star. Congrats to the boy for showing bravery, and hopefully his testimony will help save others as well.
Though I don't wish him death, I do wish it for him ministry. Their protests have driven unsaved souls away, and have given Baptists a bad name. God does not hate the homosexual, but rather homosexuality. The homosexual needs our help (just like us when we were in sin), not criticism.
If "interest in spirituality" is defined as going to Wednesday youth group to hang out with some friends and the preaching a side note, then there should be no surprise here. Youth groups do not save a people, only the Word of God can do that!
