Harlem Hate Pastor: Putin Is Getting Ready To Out President Obama - VIDEO

Manning

Pastor James David Manning of Harlem’s All The Land Anointed Holy (ATLAH) Missionary Church has looked into the future and seen that Vladimir Putin or "someone from within the Russian government" will out President Obama as a gay man within the next 100 days. It is unclear at this time whether Manning used a crystal ball to “prognosticate” this event. Manning’s comments were made in a YouTube video, as The Independent reports:

"I want to prognosticate today that 100 days from this very hour… Either Vladimir Putin himself or one of his assistants or someone within the Russian government will call Mr Long-Legged Mac Daddy, will call him an outright gay, pervert, homosexual, sodomite,” he alleges in the video below.

"This will happen within 100 days," he said. "We’re starting the countdown today. Tomorrow, obviously, will be 99 days before it will actually take place.”

Manning has a history of vitriolic and baseless attacks against the LGBT community, advocating for the stoning of gays, suggesting Obama is behind a plot to unleash gay "homo demons" on black men, and deeming "faggot" an acceptable term. He has also alleged that basketball player Reggie Love is the President’s secret lover. He made sure to bring up this subject in his latest video, sharing a (clearly imagined) conversation between Love and Obama:

"'Why don’t you set the sodomy community – the homosexual mafia – free?'" he claims Love asked Obama. "'Why don’t you leave five year old boys and girls free to pursue a sexual identity that is condemned by the Bible?' And the Mac Daddy wouldn’t do it.”

Most recently, Manning’s ATLAH church took to its marquee (one of the church's favorite ways of spreading hate) to yet again condemn gays and all those who support them: “All churches & members that support homos cursed be thou with cancer HIV syphilis stroke madness itch then hell 1 Cor. 6:9” — a very creative if inaccurate translation of Corinthians.

Former Ex-Gay Leader Tim Rymel Releases ‘Going Gay,’ Memoir About His Life-Long Struggles With Homosexuality, Religion

TimRymelAs the former Outreach Director for ex-gay group Love in Action, Tim Rymel was convinced that the years he had spent praying for a heterosexual life had come to a fruitful end. He married a woman, had two children, and appeared on national talk shows assuring gays and lesbians that they too could change. After a bad divorce, though, Rymel went on an arduous journey to come to terms with his homosexuality. Now he has released a book, Going Gay: My Journey from Evangelical Christian Minister to Self-acceptance, Love, Life, and Meaning, telling his story from start to finish. 

From the press release:

Going Gay not only recounts Rymel’s journey but provides a starting point for dialogue about LGBT inclusion in the church.

“I want the conservative church to see the painful reality that many of their own believers go through to come to terms with their inborn homosexuality,” Rymel said. “I wrote the book ‘as one of their own’ to create dialogue and cause them to rethink what they believe and what the Bible says about homosexuality.”

...

Going Gay is a heartbreaking, thought-provoking account of one man’s journey to accept and understand himself,” said Justin Lee, founder and Executive Director of Gay Christian Network. “In a culture where faith and sexuality seem often to be at war, the stories of those caught in the crossfire are critically important. Readers may not agree with all of Rymel’s views, but this is a story worth telling and a story worth understanding.”

A Q&A with Rymel reveals a self-loving, accepting human being. “Being LGBT does not send you to hell,” he says, and “God loves you exactly the way you are.” These are certainly words to live by for many struggling LGBT folks around the country.

Congrats to Rymel for not only persevering through numerous difficult years, but for sharing an important story. His book is available in paperback, hardcover, and as an e-book.


Anti-Gay Activist Bill Whatcott Crashes Vancouver Pride, Hands Out Fake Condoms

Bill 'Matthew Davidson' Whatcott

For as much as they claim to be about spreading the love of the gospel and hope of Jesus Christ to the fallen, anti-gay wingnuts really seem to put a lot of effort into trolling. Crazy person Bill Whatcott, whom you may remember being "oppressed" alongside Peter LaBarbera at Canada's University of Regina, decided to crash Pride in Vancouver to spread his message of hate. Feeling that the ninth commandment - "Thou shalt not bear false witness" - was more of a suggestion than a command, he dyed his hair pink and went under the pseudonym "Matthew Davidson" to hand out "condoms" that were really anti-gay screeds in disguise.

Only one person actually opened a condom in the presence of "Davidson" and his cohorts. When she became visibly distressed at the bait and switch, Joe Jervis points out that they continued "lying for Jesus" and told the woman that he mistakenly handed her something that he himself had earlier been handed by some homophobe at the parade.

So not only is Whatcott a vile homophobe, he's a coward to boot, unwilling to stand by his convictions when face-to-face with someone in public. And it's actually kind of wonderful. The more spineless lunatics devoid of all integrity on their side, the better. Much like Westboro, it removes the mask of civility from the ugliness of the hate and exposes it for the world to see, and that will only benefit proponents of equality in the end.


Pastor John Hagee: 'Counterfeit Christians' Supporting LGBT Rights Are America's Biggest Threat: VIDEO

  Screen Shot 2014-08-08 at 12.13.11 PM

For televangelist John Hagee the biggest threat facing Americans today are those “counterfeit Christians” whom, amongst other things, either endorse womens’ open access to abortions or support LGBT rights to marriage. Hagee, known for founding San Antinio’s Cornerstone Megachurch, has made a name for himself  through John Hagee Ministries, his series of radio and television ministries that are broadcast to over 150 million households in North America.

“Those of you who got on national television and endorsed homosexual lifestyle because the president did so, you are a counterfeit Christian, you are a moral coward, you are a hireling shepherd,” Hagee said, condemning the increasing number of pastors that are accepting of homosexuality. “Shame on you.”

Focus on the Family: Christians Are Becoming 'Slaves' to Pro-LGBT Equality 'Tyrants' - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-08-04 at 9.45.04 AM

In a new video about the "unhealthy, modern" separation of church and state, Focus on the Family's CitizenLink host Stuart Shepard uses some recent examples of anti-gay discrimination, such as the Colorado baker who refused service to a gay couple, to claim that pro-LGBT laws have created the 'tyrant' government preying on religious liberties that our Founding Fathers warned about.

Rick Scarborough: U.S. Should Be Obliterated Because Of Gay Ambassadors - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-08-04 at 8.22.31 AM

Rick Scarborough, the homophobic Vision America founder and pastor whom even the Tea Party has had to distance itself from, has said that it is a miracle that god has not destroyed the U.S. since President Barack Obama started appointing gay ambassadors, reports Right Wing Watch.

In the newly released video, wingnut Scarborough says that it would be “perfectly just” for god to destroy the U.S. “because we have squandered our grace in this country.”

Agreeing with Islamic fundamentalists who call the U.S. the “Great Satan,” the homophobic pastor demonstrates just how dreadful the U.S. has become by pointing out that foreign U.S. embassies celebrate Pride as well as the appointment of several gay ambassadors by President Obama.

In lighter, related news: last weekend, Daniel Baer, U.S. Ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, married his partner Brian Walsh in Vienna.
