    Did anyone watch 20/20 Friday night? They had two young boys who were preachers, one a black child who did not consider himself a pastor, he was a prophet, he was 10 or 11 I believe. And the other was I think 5 or 6 from Alabama.

    Did anyone watch this, if so, what are your thoughts...

    I believe that both children were promted or prodded into doing what they do. One child's grandmother is a pastor, she has a heavy influence on his life. The other child's father is a pastor, also has a heavy influence on his life. I am not saying the child did not want to be in the position they are in or that they do not like what they do. I just think they have serious influences over them.

    What got my attention is when the interviewer asked the little boy from Alabama at the close of the interview, "Why do you preach?" and he responded with, "I don't know, your gonna have to ask my daddy."

    My son (6) told me just the other day that if doesn't design games and make movies about the transformers that kids can watch and play, then he wants to be a pastor.

    Obviously if he wants to make the big bucks he will chose to be a pastor.

    No doubt what to do. If he wants a job where people will love and respect him, where he can feel like impacting lives and where is work will get the credit he is really due. He will ...


    ...make transformer games and movies :)

    Well, there you go! Sounds like daddy is trying to parade his kid around so he can find some fame and fortune. All I can say is "PITIFUL!"
