An anti-gay Harlem pastor fired back on Monday after an LGBT group began raising money to buy his church at a foreclosure auction.
DNAInfo reported that a state judge ordered Pastor David Manning’s Atlah Worldwide Church to be sold at auction to pay over $1 million in taxes and other debts. Manning insisted that his church was exempt from most of the debt, and that he would fight the order.
Rivers of Living Water Ministries, an LGBT spiritual group, announced last week that it had launched a fundraising campaign to purchase the church and replace it with an inclusive ministry.
During a Monday broadcast, Manning said that he had a warning “for all the sodomites that think that you’re going to purchase this church in a foreclosure sale.”
“This ain’t no bathhouse, this ain’t no f*g house, this is the Lord’s house!” he exclaimed. “And before you can ever own this property, hook or crook… men who are f*gs with testicles will be carrying babies in their testicles and giving birth to them through their anus.”
“That’s how impossible it is for you to get this house,” Manning continued. “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 going to pull this church out from underneath us. And boom shakalaka goes right there.”
“And all you f*gs can go to hell! And do it now.”
Rivers of Living Water Ministries had raised about $20,000 in the first three days of its campaign. The group anticipates that it will need $1.2 million to successfully purchase Atlah Worldwide Church at public auction on Feb. 24.

Trump’s deportation threat is ‘literally not possible’ — he’s just trying to ‘terrorize families’: MSNBC reporter
MSNBC's Jacob Soboroff condemned President Donald Trump's threat to arrest and deport millions of migrants living in the U.S. as impractical, implausible and immoral.
The reporter has been covering the Trump administration's family separation policy since last year, and he's toured the overcrowded detention facilities where children have died after they were taken from their parents at the border, and Soboroff said the president was only making things worse.
"Donald Trump is a human billboard for illegal migration, the way he's talking about this," Soboroff said. "When he came into the office, and the numbers dipped, they called it the Trump effect and people were scared. People aren't scared of Donald Trump anymore, and they are rushing to the country."
Mitch McConnell busted on CNN as the ‘ringmaster’ leaving the door open for more Russian election interference
On Tuesday, CNN's John Avlon broke down how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is every bit the obstacle to secure and safe elections as President Donald Trump is.
"There should be things that transcend petty politics, and towards the top of that list is stopping foreign powers from interfering in our elections," said Avlon, playing a clip of former special counsel Robert Mueller warning about the dangers. "Robert Mueller's warning is again, falling on willfully deaf ears. We know that foreign powers continue to try to meddle in our elections. Trump's FBI director and Director of National Intelligence have made this crystal clear."
