Video: NY ‘flames from every butthole’ preacher calls for gay flag burning celebration

A New York church pastor, known for his vehemently anti-LGBT stances, is pledging to “celebrate” avoiding his building’s foreclosure by burning a pile of rainbow flags in its courtyard.

“We gonna get a whole bunch of them rainbow flags; we gonna out there in our courtyard, we gonna stick a match to them and we gonna burn them,” Rev. James David Manning said in the video, which can be found here. “They said they gon’ burn Bibles when they take our church … we’re going to burn the flag.”

In December 2015, Judge Joan Kenny ordered the ATLAH World Missionary Church to be sold at a public foreclosure auction. The church, which has been known to display messages like “Jesus would stone homos” and “Obama has released the homo demons on the black man” on its billboard, had reportedly racked up debts totaling more than $1.02 million at the time of the announcement.

Last week, however, Judge Manuel J. Mendez rescinded Kenny’s order of foreclosure and sale, at least until it’s decided whether or not the church, which is located in Manhattan’s Harlem neighborhood, owes the city for water and sewerage use. Places of worship can qualify for exemption, but church officials argue that they have been turned down for that immunity by New York’s Department of Environmental Protection despite applying five times, The New York Times reports.

The Ali Forney Center, which operates a 24/7 drop-in center for homeless youth, hoped to buy the church and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars towards its purchase.

The church’s billboard was changed to announce that “The foreclosure and sale of ATLAH Church has been vacated. To celebrate, we will burn the rainbow fag flag in our courtyard. TBA.”

Manning has recorded many hateful videos against gays and president Barrack Obama. One of his recent ones was to warn people that those who engage in anal sex would have “flames shooting out of their buttholes,” a word he used many, many times in the video. See below.
