While I'm glad he got away from his kidnapper, I have to ask why a ten year old hasn't been taught not to approach a stranger's vehicle like this?

No that would be Bullets, Bullets was the correct answer, sorry you didn't win but thanks for playing and lets see what prizes Bill has for you just for showing up.

Smart little kid.  Glad to know he kept his wits about him and annoyed his kidnapper with gospel music - probably guilted the guy into letting him go.
 
2014-04-20 07:27:16 PM
Can't blame the guy, gospel music is just nails on a chalk board. Maybe bring some earmuffs to your next kidnapping, eh champ? Nah but in all seriousness, pretty cool the kid got away.

I agree. Bullets for anyone singing gospel is always the correct answer.

I went to church today for the first time in years (at the invitation of friends)...I was expecting Gospel music, but no.  It was pop Christian music.  I can almost bear gospel, but not that shiat.

The comments section of my local radio station that carried this story was awash with "Praise the Lord!" and "God saved him"--I asked why God was so preoccupied with this kid that He neglected to do anything about the kids who died on the Korean ship. The responses were along the lines of "God does what he wants" 

Religious people are farking idiots.

Well, it's obvious...because Korean kids are godless heathens and God only cares about those who are willing to sing Gospel music when abducted.

Duh.

When I was about six or seven, I spent a car ride singing, "Jesus Loves the Little Children" over and over until my mother explained, quite gently, that although she didn't want to stop me singing a song about Jesus, could I please stop.

Wish she'd pointed out what a racist effing song it was.

And how is it racist? "Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight...". Sounds pretty inclusive to me.

That guy was hardcore.  I can only take about 10 minutes of my son's version of "Old MacDonald" before I threaten to strap him to the roof.

I have no clue if this is factual, but someone commented on the website"Get it right, DM. The kidnapper didn't stand waving a handful of bills until the child was in reach. He scattered a handful of coins on the ground at the end of the driveway, hid, and grabbed the boy when he was picking them up." Again, I have no clue if it is factual.

There are many, many different types of gospel music.

I used to play it during RnB sets and I can tell you that a lot of people had no idea they were hearing gospel music until they were told.

Yeah, never thought of it as a racist song (quite the opposite).  I'll give it a try though.

Puts on Post Colonial Guilt and Grievance Hat:

The song does indeed say that Jesus loves all the little children, of all colors.  This would include the lesser races who don't actually deserve the unqualified love that is the birthright of the little white children.
 
2014-04-20 08:23:01 PM
This is why you always, always duct-tape the kid's mouth shut.

Oh, I actually love that type of gospel.  I'm talking about the 'choir sings from a hymn book' type of gospel music.

God is in his holy temple.
Earthly thoughts, be silent now,
While with rev'rence we assemble
And before his presence bow.
He is with us, now and ever,
When we call upon his name,
Aiding ev'ry good endeavor,
Guiding ev'ry upward aim.

Did you go to the traditional early service or the later "rock n roll church?" Our church caters to both. My BIL/SIL and nephews like the latter - my wife and I like traditional. Also, you may need to do some church-shopping to find what fits you best if it's something you want to get back into - we searched for years after moving back to my hometown.

I thought of the little gospel-singing boy from America's Funniest Videos, the one who is so filled with the spirit the preacher has to wrestle the mike away.

I'm pretty sure I don't believe a word of that story.
 
2014-04-20 10:01:22 PM
The kid probably wanted it, though the only sexual experience he has had at 10 involved singing gospel songs to cover the pastor spanking him.

Sadly, we have not.

In another 100 years, maybe. Skin color, country of origin, none of that should matter, people are people.

2014-04-20 10:32:03 PM
You know... kudos to the perp.

This is yet another reason why I could never be a child kidnapper: I'd fold like a tortured metaphor after only ten minutes of "Michael Row Your Boat Ashore"

And looking this particular Hezekiah Walker song up on YouTube - it's pretty monotonous.
 
2014-04-20 11:01:12 PM
Maybe the kidnapper was actually his father and wanted to reunite, ah well at lease he tried.

I know that (I lived in Japan for a year and had a few Korean friends), but try telling that to many American Christians.

We went to a Methodist Church.  I'm not really looking to get back into church...our friends invited us to spend Easter with them, and as we care about them, we went.  But I don't really feel the need to have faith in my life.  I do understand the want to be part of a community, but I've always been the type of person who has friends in different groups, and right now our friends consist of:

1. Buddhists/Shintoists (from my time in Japan)
2. Four Catholic families (we currently live in a Catholic area)
3. Methodists
4. Southern Baptists (admittedly, this is part of my family)
5. Atheists/Agnostics

I've been to many different churches/temples/places of faith...but I feel more at home with my friends than I do in communities.

FTFA: "He said after hearing the moving story and how his song had potentially saved a life,  he wanted to meet Willie."

Another way of looking at it is that your song drove somebody crazy enough to give up all hope, give up on their goal, and become a quitter.

We sang a slightly more offensive version of the song when I was in the Army.

Napalm sticks to little children
All the children of the world
Red and yellow, black and white
They are torches in the night
Napalm sticks to little children of the world


I can't hear the original song without that version overriding it in my head.
