NYC Pastor: 'Jesus Would Stone Homos' — VIDEO


In recent weeks we've posted about James David Manning, birther and chief pastor at the ATLAH World Missionary Church on 123rd Street in New York City's Harlem neighborhood, and his homophobic church signage.

According to Manning, President Obama has unleashed gay demons upon the black male community "hoping to influence as many black males to subscribe to ideals of 'homosexual perverted LGBT' as possible." This has led to the outing of Jason Collins and Michael Sam which in turn is "encouraging more black men to come out of the closet."

Joe Jervis points out that Manning is ratcheting up the rhetoric with a new sign (above) and video, which you can watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I think a certain church needs a visit from the police department.

  2. Tax-Exempt, we presume?
    Just fabulous in its depravity.

  3. Actually, Jesus, a known rebel of his times, would go into your house of supposed worship, and throw a monumental hissy fit.

    He apparently really disliked those who blindly abide by the old books, and conveniently manipulate godly love into hatred and prejudice.

  4. this is a sad legacy of the oppression of black people in America - denying them education and indoctrinating them with Christianity - left the doors open to this kind of crazy.

  5. So he's saying that Jesus is a genocidal maniac.

    Fair enough.

    There are different interpretations of the fictional character of Jeebus.

  6. I wish someone would drive by late at night and blast that sign to bits.

  7. Steve, these people have minds of their own. Blaming it on Christianity is a lame excuse. Given their history of oppression, it's even sadder to see people not learn from history.

  8. And why not the women in the adultery he mentions?

  9. If this were any other group : women, muslims, asian people - there would be widespread media coverage - but it's just gay men he's attacking ! Let's be clear here, when he says "homos" he means gay men. That's OK ! It's fine to advertise killing us in America !

  10. This is the end result of religious fanaticism .. They create a believe system that supports their narrow views .. after a while they need to turn up the volume to get attention ..These people are MOCK Christians . with a VERY Deviant message, light years different from their own christ .. These bigots are NOT christians ... they are something else entirely

  11. He sounds like a Muppet

  12. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone! Remember that one? I think it's from, wait...the Bible.

  13. Man should be fired for incompetence. He apparently doesn't know the first thing about Jesus whose feelings about stoning are well documented and were taught to him wherever he was accredited.

  14. Inciting violence, or threatening murder isn't against the law in the US?

  16. He's crazy as a motha' f.ckin' bedbug...just moves slower.

    I don't think the media takes this kind of preachin' nut any more seriously than they do the Westboro Church nuts. The media tends to ignore them. Whether that's good or bad...well?

  17. Please note that the video has been removed from YouTube due to a violation of their hate speech policy!

  18. This slug robbed over a hundred homes in the 70s and spent hard time in prison for robbery, larceny, burglary and many other crimes. No wonder he is such a disgusting person.

  19. I hope someone stones the sign

  20. @604brian : it is not against the law in the U.S. to make claims about what some guy, real or imagined, who supposedly lived about 2000 years ago before the Romans executed him, would have done.

    This religious nut may belong in a mental institution, but (unless there is more to the story) not in jail.

  21. @ "Inciting violence, or threatening murder isn't against the law in the US?"

    Well, you've got a point. Gay New Yorkers (and allies) should bring this dangerous disgrace to Mayor DeBlasio's attention & to the attention of their city council representatives.

  22. @Zeke - I didn't know that about Brother Manning. Well-sounds like he enjoyed his late-nights in the cellblock just a little too much and is looking for an escape-hatch. If only he could forget how hot it was taking it from the other brothers...but some things just can't be forgotten. Thank God. :)

  23. I think it left out Adulterers, Fornicators, Divorcees, people who work on Sunday, people who sow two different crops in the same field, people who touch the skin of a pig, people who eat shrimp, people who have been on Mount Sinai,people who wear cloth made of more than one kind of thread, people who curse, people who commit blaspheme, rape victims who don't scream loud enough, a woman who is not a virgin on her wedding night, children who disobey their parents, and last but not least, any ox that gore's a man or woman. These are all laws written in the same Bible that this church is quoting.

  24. question, Americans:

    this is not a citation of the bible. there is nothing in scripture to back that up. it's not religious freedom. that's not a biblical quote.

    that's putting words and a message out there that actually encourages and promotes violence against gay people.

    how in the name of GOD is that legal?

  25. @Zeke - then his becoming a pastor was just another step in a long life of lying, stealing and grifting people. Seems appropriate, somehow, for him to be a pastor now - the same skill set is required.
