James Manning, a New York City-based Pentecostal minister is an idiot. He has recently released a video in which he states that use of the homophobic epithet, "Fag" is biblically acceptable and needs to be employed frequently when referring to any LGBT person.
Manning also stated that equality rights for LGBT Americans who practice the "biblical abomination" of homosexuality will lead to the legalization of bestiality, citing an example of the potential for the video's viewership to possibly have a loved one desire to marry a dog or a goat.
Caution: There's an extreme amount of ignorance exuding from this video:
Seriously, are you kidding my balls? This is ridiculous. The fact that someone could actually fix their mouths to say this is beyond stupidity. And, to think he actually has followers listening to this ridiculous message is absurd. Who are you people? But, Manning is no stranger to controversial declarations. Not long after the current President of the United States, Barack Obama, was elected, he called Obama's mother "white trash" for becoming pregnant by a black man out of wedlock. So, he's a racist and homophobe - great combo!
Manning, I dare you to call me or anyone else a 'fag' to their face...I swear you will regret it. Don't you see this is igniting hatred and crimes against LGBT people - yes, the alphabet is correct - under the name of God. People will actually believe this and take it as Gospel. This is just wrong. And, this just shows we need be extremely more careful about who we put as our religious leaders. You are further confirming to me that being agnostic is the best thing. Thank you for that. I would never be apart of such a group that's blatantly hateful.
You should be ashamed of yourself, Manning. I'll be sure to constantly check the news to hear about your "downlow" homosexual affair - this hatred has to come from somewhere, right? I'm thinking self loathing, perhaps?
Manning is the chief pastor at the ATLAH World Missionary Church on 123rd Street in New York City. He grew up in Red Springs, N.C., and has been at ATLAH since 1981.
ATLAH stands for All The Land Anointed Holy, which is Manning's name for Harlem.
I can't believe this crap!
