Harlem Hate Church Gets New Sign Attacking Homos, Maya Angelou, Ali Forney Center

ATLAH Church Sellout Sign

Harlem's ATLAH World Missionary Church - the one run by "stone the gays" (but not really) pastor James David Manning - has put up a new sign on their marquee condemning "pinch nose sellout negros" and "demonic homos."

It's a remarkable coincidence - or not - that the church is right next to the Apollo Theatre, which is presently giving tribute to the late Maya Angelou. Also remarkably (non)coincidental, as Joe Jervis points out, is that the June 2nd meeting advertised is the night of Harlem's newly-opened Ali Forney Center's rally for more beds for homeless LGBT youth.


Anti-gay Wingnut Peter LaBarbera Chats with Harlem’s ‘Jesus Would Stone Homos’ Pastor: VIDEO

Earlier this week, anti-gay wingnut and 'Americans for Truth About Homosexuality' founder Peter LaBarbera appeared on the internet show of Harlem’s "Jesus Would Stone Homos" Pastor James Manning.

Via joe.my.god:

Peter-labarbera...just the usual fire and brimstone denouncements and lies about "ex-gays." LaBarbera whines that marriage equality is a done deal nationwide, he just hopes that at least one state (Oklahoma, he suggests) defies the courts and refuses to comply with a marriage ruling. For his part, Manning declares that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo "is a homosexual himself."

Gay Rights Supporters Hold Protests Outside Harlem Church That Advocated Stoning Gays: VIDEO

Harlem protest

On Friday and Saturday, gay rights advocates protested outside the ATLAH World Missionary Church in NYC's Harlem neighborhood, which has made headlines recently for its anti-gay church signs including “Jesus Would Stone Homos”

Via press release from Saturday’s rally:

ATLAHProtest2Over fifty LGBT activists protested for over an hour in the rain yesterday outside ATLAH World Missionary Church in Harlem, demanding that the church’s controversial pastor, James David Manning, emerge and administer the stonings that his public sign recently called for. Until it was vandalized last week, the church’s marquee read, “Jesus would stone homos. Harlem is a homo free zone.” Holding a forty-foot rainbow banner and shouting chants like “Harlem queers under attack! What do we do? ACT UP! Fight back!” and “Hey hey! Ho ho! David Manning has got to go!” the multiracial crowd also brandished signs that read, “God is love” and “Let he without sin cast the first stone.” At one point the rowdy group moved to the side entrance of the church, repeatedly ringing the building’s buzzer and raising their fists while they shouted, “We’re here for out stoning! We’re here for our stoning!” Several church members watched from inside through a glass door, smiling and chatting.

Manning responded to Friday’s smaller protest with a video message, which you can watch AFTER THE JUMP

That ATLAH World Missionary Church in NYC's Harlem neighborhood, which has made headlines recently for its anti-gay church signs, was vandalized on Saturday, tagged with the phrase 'God is Gay', the NYDN reports:

JesusWouldStoneHomosA male suspect is being sought for spray-painting the retaliatory message on both sides of the sign outside the ATLAH World Missionary Church on W. 123rd St. near Lenox Ave., police said Sunday. The vandal struck early Saturday.

Pastor James David Manning in the past has used the sign to display messages such as “Jesus would stone homos” and “Harlem is a homo-free zone.”

Manning lashed out at the vandal when reached by the Daily News on Sunday.

“Gay people are just outright bullies,” he said. “I expected them to act in a very violent way.”

The NYDN published a surveillance photo of the vandal (see below).

Harlem Pastor Defends Stance Of Stoning Gays: VIDEO

Pastor James David Manning

Pastor James David Manning of ATLAH World Missionary Church on 123rd Street in New York City's Harlem neighborhood has taken to YouTube to comment on the endorsement for the murder of homosexuals on his church's marquee, an endorsement that the church wasn't quite prepared to follow through on as one lesbian revealed. Manning takes the time to clarify,

JesusWouldStoneHomosI never said that I would stone homos. I never said that. I never said that I would ask anyone else to stone homos. I never said that. What I did say is what the Bible says, and I gave several verses within the word of God that would demonstrate why I believe that Jesus would stone homos.

He then proceeds to quite the predictible verses from Old Testament laws, Leviticus in particular, and then performs some remarkable intellectual gymnastics to interpret the story from John about whether or not an adulteress should be stoned - the story where Jesus said "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone" - as approval for public execution. Therefore, because Jesus did call for her execution (even though he cast no stones himself despite being the only sinless one there), he would approve the execution of homosexuals as well, even though it's a topic never addressed by Jesus anywhere between Genesis and Revelations.

Lesbian Requests Stoning At Harlem Church with 'Jesus Would Stone Homos' Sign: VIDEO

Stoning

Intrigued by the Harlem church billboard that said, “Jesus would stone homos… stoning is still the law,” openly lesbian Facebooker Jennifer Louise Lopez went to the church to get her stone on and took video of her visit.

Sadly, the man who answered the door had no stones and said that the gentleman who usually does stonings would not be in until tomorrow. Luckily, Ms. Lopez seems open to returning later so that she may receive her due death at the hands of Jesus’ righteous warriors.
