Last week, ABC’s “Nightline” program aired a story about yet another parent who is grooming their child for future employment in a particular vocation. The video below depicts yet another soccer/little league mom and dad pushing their kid to fulfill a fantasy that they could not fulfill for themselves. The only difference is that these guardians are pimping their kid to peddle the Gospel:
There’s not much to be said after that display – the footage says enough. While some will accuse the bedeviled “mainstream media” for “blowing this out of proportion”, you can’t deny that these nutty guardians provided the wood for the fire – an innocent child, a child that is clearly adept at mimicking the stage craft he’s seen most of his life.
Sadly, at this age, Terry Durham has no idea about how to soberly preach or teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ – instead, he has an idea of how to put on a religious show. Even sadder, young Terry (who doesn’t want to perform for his handlers for the rest of his life, by the way) will probably be handed off to a high-profile pulpit pimp for further grooming.
