James David Manning isn’t pleased that ‘fags’ are trying to buy his church

James David Manning isn’t pleased that ‘fags’ are trying to buy his church

On Tuesday we reported that The Ali Forney Center, an organization that provides shelter and counseling for LGBTQ youth, is trying to purchase James David Manning’s demented Harlem church, which regularly flaunts homophobic signage and is currently scheduled for a public foreclosure auction, since Manning owes over $1 million in debt.

So far, the Center’s campaign has been a stunning success: They’ve already raised $130,000 for their HarlemNoHate Campaign.

Needless to say, Manning was not happy to hear this news. A new video posted to the church’s YouTube channel finds the man who thinks Starbucks puts “gay semen” in their lattes in fine form:

“All kind of stuff been spread around,” he blathers, “they’re going to turn this church into a bathhouse, they’re going to turn this church into a homeless building for the sodomites. The sodomites are sick as hell! This is the lord’s house! This ain’t no damn bathhouse! It ain’t no fag house! And before you can ever own this property, hook or crook, men who are fags with testicles will be carrying babies in their testicles and giving birth to them through their anus.”

As though that wasn’t enough food for thought to chew on for the afternoon, he added:

“That’s how impossible it is for you to get this house. When you start carrying a baby in your bags and birthing that baby through your ass… then you can own this house! But until I see you pull a baby out your ass, you ain’t gonna pull this church out from underneath us. Boom shaka-laka goes right there! And all you fags can go to hell!”

Ali Forney Center’s founder Carl Siciliano told JoeMyGod, “I imagine we are going to hear a lot of ranting and raving from Reverend Manning until the auction. And he has good cause to be ranting.”

“The Ali Forney Center has been overwhelmed with support since we announced our bid to site a housing program for LGBT youth, thus far raising $130K, well over $30K a day, in our quest to win his foreclosed building at auction.”
