|David James Manning|
This past weekend I wrote about The Ali Forney Center, which serves homeless LGBT youth in NYC, is working to raise funds to buy virulently anti-gay Pastor David James Manning’s ATLAH World Missionary Church, after it was announced that the property is up for auction due to past due taxes and utility bills.
With a goal of $200,000 the fundraising page shows over $151,000 donated at this time.

Manning has posted another of his hate-filled rants on YouTube saying the building will never be used to help LGBT youth because "this ain't no bathhouse!"
From the video:
“This is the lord’s house! This ain’t no damn bathhouse! It ain’t no fag house! And before you can ever own this property – hook or crook – own this property. Men who are fags 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. 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 gonna pull this church out from underneath us. And boom shaka-laka goes right there! And all you fags can go to hell! I’m James David Manning, everybody. I’m the lord’s servant!”
“I imagine we are going to hear a lot of ranting and raving from Rev Manning until the auction,” says Ali Forney Center director Carl Siciliano. “And he has good cause to be ranting. The Ali Forney Center has been overwhelmed with support since we announced our bid to site a housing program for LGBT youth.”
