This anti-gay church is about to close due to unpaid bills — and reopen as a center for homeless LGBT youth
A pastor who preaches hatred toward the LGBT community may soon lose his church over unpaid debts — and the property may be purchased by an organization that helps homeless LGBT kids, according to the Friendly Atheist.
James David Manning, pastor of Atlah Worldwide Church in Harlem, may be best known for outrageous anti-gay statements, like claiming Starbucks latte drinks contain the “semen of sodomites.” But now, he may be losing his church to the Ali Forney Center, which provides housing and services to homeless LGBT youth.
In a “message to my enemies” posted to YouTube, Manning said the church wouldn’t be turned over to what he termed “sodomites.”
“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,” he ranted. “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.”
When asked by MSNBC if he had any message for potential church buyers, Manning said, “Go to Hell. And do it now. I would tell them to kiss my ass, but they might like that.”
