WATCH: Angry neighbors call out gay-hating Pastor Manning for absurd slogans outside Harlem church

Published

Angry neighbors confronted a flamboyantly anti-LGBT pastor over the hateful messages he posts outside his Harlem church.

Pastor James David Manning, an occasional Fox News guest and vehement critic of President Barack Obama, lashed out after neighbors called him out for his anti-gay slogans, reported WPIX-TV.

“I ended up walking across the street because it’s so hurtful to hold my wife’s hand and these words every time I pass by,” said Sharifa Ferryman, a lesbian who lives in the neighborhood.

Manning replied by telling the woman she would go to hell for her “insidious and wicked lifestyle.”

“It’s a disgrace that you would stand here and confess that you have a relationship with another woman — it’s a disgrace before God,” Manning said.

A billboard outside his Atlah World Missionary Church, at 123rd Street and Lenox Avenue, has carried messages saying “Jesus would stone homos” and “all churches and members that support homos cursed be thou with cancer, HIV, syphilis, stroke, and madness.”

Neighbors fed up with the messages said Manning and his church were disgraceful.

“This is clearly hate speech — you’re inciting violence,” one neighbor said.

Manning, who became a Christian during a prison stint as a young man and admits to suppressing previous homosexual urgings, insisted he had a right to post the graphic and salacious slogans.

“This is still America and we have freedom speech,” he said.

One man told the pastor that his two children see the signs, which warn against “homo demons” who are “looking for some dark meat” and spreading sexually transmitted disease.

“I pray they see it every day,” Manning told the father.

Published

on

President Donald Trump thinks he will win New Mexico. He's repeated the factoid multiple times, including to a group of oil and gas workers and executives Wednesday at a conference in Pittsburgh, PA. But he also made two significant mistakes to put that support in jeopardy.

First, the president indicated he was building his "wall" on the border of Colorado, which is north of New Mexico. It would mean that New Mexico was now part of Mexico.

Second, it was reported by the Albuquerque Journal that their city is yet another one Trump's campaign is refusing to pay for security costs.

House investigators have "recent evidence" of witnesses working to coordinate their testimony before Congress, a Democratic congressman revealed on MSNBC on Wednesday.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who sits on the Intelligence and Judicial committees, was interviewed by MSNBC Chris Hayes.

"Final question, what is the timeline here?" Hayes asked. "There is some transparency argument that at some point this can’t be behind closed doors, the American people, all of us, Republicans, Democrats, citizens and journalists have to hear what’s happening."

"You’re absolutely right and there will be a public phase," Swalwell replied.
