Harlem Atlah Church Has New Message Of Anti-Gay Christian Hate

Harlem Altah Hate Church Sign

I really, really don't think that anyone at the Atlah Church in Harlem has actually read the Bible. The verse referenced above in their new marquee, 1 Corinthians 6:9, just states that bad people don't go to heaven.

While a great many people interpret the verse as a condemnation of gays and lesbians, it doesn't wish harm on them nor curse them with horrible debilitating diseases. It's particularly peculiar that they invoke the same ill will on those who love and support sinners given Jesus himself said the second greatest commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself

So, either pastor James David Manning of the Harlem Hate Church has some self-esteem issues, or just simply isn't interested in the actual message of that long-haired socialist hippie he claims to worship.

  2. Itch? Seriously?

  3. Back in the 60s and 70s people like this pastor were just ignored. They're crackpots and people just wrote them off. Now with 24/7 media consumption, every crackpot gets a forum.

  5. We should just stop giving this ignorant bigot a forum.

  6. I'm confused by Itch, too.

  7. Oh please. Now they're just doing this to be in the spotlight again. Probably needs more fools to donate just for maintenance. I can't take this seriously

  8. I believe you mean to say "According to the bible, Jesus said...."

    Because everything written in the bible is pure fantasy. I need no more look toward the good things written in that book than I need to get upset at any of the incredibly awful things written in that book.

    It's every bit as fictional as Ovid's Metamorphoses -- and not as well written.

  9. Just a reminder: in premium-priced Harlem, these folks pay NO TAXES on their holdings in real estate, incomes, investments, as they spew their vomit.
    Anybody else thinks that's wrong?

    Don't ask any of us, ask the dude who put up the sign.

  14. They probably haven't read much of anything.

  15. a) the 10 commandments is a list (ideally not in any particular order)

    b) 'do onto others as' is the Golden Rule

    always seemed (to me) that Jesus know that folks couldn't abide by 10 directives (hello ego) so he boiled the message down to One teaching.

    even i you don't believe in the sky god or not (respond below) the second, simpler option seems to be too difficult for most.

    perhaps we should be attempting a more Waldrof (Rudolf Steiner) philosophy of free, morally responsible, and integrated individuals equipped with a high degree of social competence approach to things?

  16. " 'do onto others as' is the Golden Rule"

    Basically, that's a rewording of the second great commandment. Jesus also gave the great commandment.

    Those of us who were raised in an evangelical household must do something with our knowledge. Actually most evangelicals really don't know the Bible. They just know what their pastors tells them is in the Bible. The pastors aren't terribly truthful.

    Have we lost our edge?

  19. This so called church is just another money making scheme to get $$$ from stupid people.

  20. The first sentence of the piece should read, "I really, really don't think that anyone at the Atlah Church in Harlem, reads."

  21. Maybe they forgot the B before itch?

  23. My reasons for being against gay/lesbian behaviors and being against sex changes are unrelated to any religion. You can be secular as I am and see the harms of homosexual and lesbian behavior as you can see the harms of tobacco use. Behavior including sexual behavior can be learned. While they have not conclusively proven same sex behaviors are genes-if that is true, it would be same as alcoholic gene. It’s undebatable truth that if a person’s a victim of childhood sex abuse, then it’s more likely he or she will do gay/lesbian conduct repeating what he learned-those who deny are either dishonest, delusional or both. There could be possibly be genes, but if that’s true then the gay gene would be the same thing as heart attack gene. There is more than 1 cause for why a conduct happens.

    Gerald (Jerry) A. Sandusky is a gay pedophile because he did homosexual relations with young boys though he was also married to a woman. The priests who molest young boys are gay pedophiles. If a man has sex with little girls only, then he is a straight pedophile. You didn’t say anything I haven’t already thought about. Rush H. Limbaugh’s right when he said Jerry A. Sandusky is gay-a gay pedophile and columnist Patrick J. Buchanan condemns who he calls gay priests who molest young boys. Those priests are again gay pedophiles, pederasts or homolesters.

    While I’m neutral on abortion, in justness to pro-lifers they believe abortion is killing a baby-there are many women pro-lifers so it’s not men seeking to control women’s bodies. If they decided to make abortion illegal, then I would not care 1 way or another. I’m pro-abortion in some cases such as if it can be predicted an unborn baby will be deformed, transexual or gay-then go ahead and abort them. But I understand view of pro-lifers regarding abortion as murder.

    I’m against sterlizations. There’s birth control such as the pill, condoms & old fahshioned Rhythm Method. Sterilization surgeries however are mutilations. Unless it’s a hysterectomy to save a life, they must make it a crime to do sterilizations. Sterilizations are spaying & neutering people. Also they make less attractive. All things=, if you have an intact woman vs. a woman who has been spayed, most men would take the intact woman. Same thing with a man who is intact vs. a man who has had a vasectomy, most women would choose the intact man.

    I support birth control but am against sterilization surgeries. I oppose breast implants because they are fake (excludes reconstruct surgeries for women who have had breast disease). If a woman has naturally nice big boobs as singer Katy E. Perry has (she is listed as DD but there are women with bigger boobs than her), then that is good. There is nothing wrong with a woman having small boobs. Most men want a woman with natural boobs-small, medium or big vs. a woman with fake boobs. I would limit Viagra in most cases because those are performance enhancers. If a man is let’s say 25 years old and in a wheelchair, then I support him using Viagra to have sex with his wife or girlfriend and have kids with her because there’s a use to it. But I am against Viagra or any other sexual enhancement drug for old men because that’s like giving steroids to nfl player. I would also be against giving Viagra and sexual enhancement drugs to homosexuals. So I would limit Viagra or other sexual enhancement drug to straight men who are under 40 years old with a handicap to that they can father children which below a certain age it’s medicine, but after a certain age it’s perfornace enhancers comparable to Steroids as Viagra, Zestra are.

    I support fertility treatments and I support In Vitro Fertilization. There are couples who want children but because the mom has problems getting pregnant or giving birth the only way for a man and his wife to have children is by In Vitro Fertilization. Let’s say that you have a man and a wife and the wife is let’s say paralyzed so that giving birth would be dangerous. I would support that couple’s right to In Vitro Fertilization (I.V.F.) so that both can enjoy having a family, raising kids, taking kids to the zoo, fun of seeing kids raise pets and so on. While In Vitro Fertilization (I.V.F.) is not perfect, In Vitro Fertilization (I.V.F.) must be there for couples who have problems having children.

    I also support Artificial Insemination with regulations. If you have a straight couple and let’s say the husband has disease where treatment could keep him from having children. Man should have a right to have his sperm stored so that he and his wife can have children. If however, you have artificial insemination for purpose of single parenthood or homosexual parenting, then it is a problem. Of course if a woman wants to have a child without father involvement then what she can do is have a 1 night stand. Also I have a friend who is a Born Again Christian who has told me that he supports In Vitro Fertilization because I.V.F. is about creating life while abortion is about preventing life so there are pro-lifers who support I.V.F. In Vitro Fertilization must be there for people who have problems having children.

    All transexuals are homosexual/lesbian as the act of mutilating to become false opposite sex is itself an act of homosexuality/lesbianism-sad maiming and make this illegal. Finally, sex change maimings which is mutilating some1 to make them fake members of opposite sex is comparable to trying to make a man a fake animal because he thinks he is an animal trapped in a human body. Most feminists are not speaking against this. 1 would hope that feminists would oppose the mutilation that happened to Chastity Sun Bono as feminists have spoken against Female Genital Mutilation which happens in some nations. Transexuals are mutilations which no Dr. should take part in, yet most feminists are not condemning this female genital and breast mutilation as what happened to Chastity S. Bono where her healthy breasts were mutilated, dangerous hormone shots and her genitals mutilated.
