HARLEM, N.Y. — While the Heartland has Westboro Baptist Church, the East Coast has Atlah World Missionary Church, located in Harlem, N.Y. While not affiliated with one other, they both practice extreme religious views, skewing Bible verses to match their beliefs.

Most recently, Atlah World Missionary Church posted a message on its marquee that has caused some controversy. The sign read “Jesus Would Stone Homos.” Click here to see the sign. The message also cited a number of Bible verses, including Mt. 5:17-19, Lev. 20:13, Dt. 17:5-7 and John 8:1-11. None, of course, literally said that Jesus would stone homos.

The pastor, Dr. James David Manning, went further to explain his message in a video on his website.

Manning is also a critic of President Obama. According to The Blaze, last month Manning’s church sign read, “Obama has released the homo demons on the black man. Look out black woman. A white homo may take your man.” The Blaze reports Manning has referred to the President as a “long-legged mack daddy,” and has compared him to Hitler and Satan.

    There are multitudes of churches right here in the metro area that feed the hungry around the world, send medical teams to address the aids epidemic in Africa. Right now I have friends in Africa, Haiti and India working to bring clean water and medical supplies to people who des[arately need them and yet the media writes about this group. Perhaps that’s because the media has far more in common with their bigoted mentality than they’d like to think.

    Please..lets remind your readers once again..WBC is neither a church nor is it “Baptist” in denomination. It is a tiny group of people all members of one family. Its a family cult and not a church.

    They don’t have act on their homosexual feelings, no more than a drunk has to act on his alcohol addiction. But God don’t hate them any more than he hates a theif or liar, or corrupt political person.
