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.

CNN panel busts Trump for ‘grotesque’ lynching comment in effort to create chaos before key impeachment hearing
Moments after Donald Trump fired off a tweet calling his impending impeachment a "lynching" a CNN panel hammered the president for making the horrific comparison -- but also pointed out that the president's use of the word was timed for a very specific reason.
Admitting a reluctance to read Trump's tweets on the air, "New Day" host Alisyn Camerota nonetheless, recited the president's tweet, reading, "So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” Trump tweeted. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!” with obvious disgust.
‘We’ve got a queer running for president!’ Tennessee official bursts into a racist, anti-gay rant at council meeting
On Monday in Sevier County, Tennessee, during a county commission meeting to discuss a pending vote to become a gun sanctuary city, Commissioner Warren Hurst exploded in a racist, homophobic tirade that stunned onlookers.
"It's time we wake up people, it's time, it's past time," said Hurst, in footage originally captured by WVLT News. "We got a queer running for president, if that ain't about as ugly as you can get. Look what we got running for president in the Democratic party. We can go over here to [Sevier County Sheriff] Hoss' jail and get better people out of there than those running for Democratic [sic] to be president of the United States."
James Clyburn schools Trump over ‘lynching’ tweet: ‘I’m a product of the South — I know the history of that word’
Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) on Tuesday schooled President Donald Trump for accusing House Democrats of "lynching" him through their impeachment inquiry.
After CNN host John Berman read Clyburn the president's tweet and asked him for his opinion, the congressman accused the president of being deliberately inflammatory in order to distract from his own actions.
"The president has also been pretty loose with his words, and this is another indication of that," he said. "I really believe this man is prone to inflammatory statements and that is one word no president ought to apply to himself."
