Pastor tells lesbians they are ‘possessed by demons’ on TV
An outspoken New York pastor has told a lesbian couple that they are “possessed” by demons – and compared them to drug addicts.
Pastor James David Manning of Harlem’s ATLAH church made the claim in a confrontation filmed by local TV station WPIX.
Manning is notorious in the local area for his anti-gay views, illegally putting up a sign outside the church claiming “Jesus would stone homos”.
WPIX captured the disturbing moment where he told a lesbian couple that they are “possessed” and need to be cured.
When a lesbian couple questioned his hateful message, he responded: “Those words are not hateful. Let me say this to you.
“I pray you will come to the truth, you are Demon possessed, you have a wicked mindset, you’re perverted. That’s all there is to it.
“God made man and woman. You are perverted. You are just as perverted as a criminal, as a drug addict, and you know you’re converted, err, perverted.
“You know that your lifestyle is wrong. The Bible condemns it, natural law condemns it. You’re wrong and you know that you are.
“You need to repent and I’ll pray for you. You need to come out of your lifestyle.”
Whether he is predicting that Vladimir Putin will ‘out’ Barack Obama, or claiming that homosexuals are putting semen into Starbucks lattes, Pastor Manning has a strange fixation on homosexuality.
He has also urged parents to take their children out of schools to avoid the “demonic homosexual mafia” making them gay, and claimed that out NFL player Michael Sam could marry a 9-year-old boy.
