Starbucks Using Gay Semen in Lattes, Says Harlem Hate Pastor: VIDEO

Manning

Earlier this week we reported on the activists who served Starbucks outside Pastor James David Manning's Harlem hate church ATLAH after Manning claimed that the coffee company is "ground zero" for Ebola because "upscale sodomites" frequent the joint.

Manning has now stepped up his twisted claims in a video alleging that Starbucks is using "sodomites' semen in lattes."

Manning says that the reason all these "untoward types" (meaning, gays) hang out at Starbucks is because the semen "flavors up" the coffee "and it makes you think that you're having a good time drinking that cup of latte with the semen in it."

LGBT Activists Offer Free Starbucks Outside Harlem Hate Church: PHOTO

Starbucks

Liz Jackson and some additional Harlem-based LGBT activists took action this week outside the Harlem hate church, she writes, at HuffPost Gay Voices:

Less than a week ago, Starbucks released its very first LGBT commercial.

Not long after, James David Manning, the pastor of Atlah Worldwide Missionary Church in Harlem, claimed Starbucks is "ground zero for Ebola" because of its LGBT appeal. Atlah, located in the heart of Harlem, boasts a prominent sign that displays hateful and homophobic messages such as "JESUS WOULD STONE HOMOS."

So a group of us got together and decided to protest this new Atlah message in the most loving way we know: with free Starbucks coffee!

Harlem Hate Pastor Claims Starbucks is 'Ground Zero' for Ebola Because of 'Upscale Sodomites' - VIDEO

Manning

James David Manning, the "Jesus Would Stone Homos" Harlem pastor who previously warned gay marriage would lead to Michael Sam marrrying a nine-year-old boy, is now sharing with the world his crackpot views on ebola and Starbucks. 

Said Manning:

Starbucks coffee stores are in fact ground zero for spreading ebola and other diseases because of the clientele of Starbucks -  generally upscale sodomites who frequent Starbucks who sit there with their computers. Its a meeting place, they exchange a lot of body fluids. Hands shaken, a lot of contact. 

Manning went on to make the incredulous claim that Dr. Craig Spencer, NYC's first ebola patient, went to a Harlem bowling ally the night before he was rushed to the hospital because the it was "a meeting place for sodomites"

Later, Manning spewed more birther nonsense about President Obama and how he's using the spread of ebola to order nationwide marshal law.

Brian Brown Claims That NOM's Pathetic Boycott Has Impacted Starbucks' Business: LISTEN

Two years ago, the National Organization for Marriage began a protest of Starbucks after the massive coffee vendor supported a pro-marriage equality referendum on the Washington ballot.

BrianBrownNow, NOM president Brian Brown claims that that boycott has made an impact on the international community's tolerance for the chain. As Good as You pointed out, however, Starbucks currently operates 21,000 stores in 65 countries with little standing in its way for further expansion; not too shabby. 

The transcript from Brown's silly attempt at relevance reads:

"You know, the media will try and say that the boycotts have minimal to no effect, but the reality is that companies like Starbucks are trying to expand around the world, and as Americans stand up and say this is wrong and they highlight that companies like Starbucks are supporting same-sex marriage, the mask comes up...Because of the Starbucks boycott for example, many countries have looked at Starbucks and the individuals that would be allowing Starbucks into the country have said, 'No, no, no,' because Starbucks does support the redefinition of marriage."

Brown then went on to get to his real point, perhaps realizing that the previous one was inane:

"Most importantly though, how can we view it as moral to be giving our dollars to a company that directly is attacking our faith? I understand again that you cannot do this to every company, but the ones that are actually attacking the faith, you have to take a stand at some point, and Target is doing that, Starbucks is doing that, and Chase is doing that."

Ah, yes. The faith, as if there were only one, and supporting same-sex marriage is in direct opposition to it--an age old struggle for Brown and NOM. Sorry, folks, but Starbucks is not feeling any worse for wear.
