Slurs such as "fag" and "bulldagger" are "Biblically acceptable" and "Christians" should use these words to "call attention to homosexuals", says a conservative, New York City-based Pentecostal minister.
James Manning, the senior pastor at the ATLAH World Missionary Church on 123rd Street in Harlem, encouraged "all Christians" to "call out homosexuals" in one of his latest incendiary video rants. "I've stated we ought to stand up, push back and use strong language, like 'fag', 'bulldagger', 'sodomite'. What they do is they get people's attention. You can't say 'homosexual' anymore because it's been so whitewashed and made acceptable by the New York Times. But you call them a 'fag' or a 'sodomite' and you get everybody's attention. That's what we want."
The far-right Black minister has also falsely accused President Obama of not being a native-born American citizen, and, bizarrely, called Obama’s mother "white trash" for becoming pregnant by an African man, reports LGBTQNation.
Manning revisited this issue on 8 December 2008 during a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, when he said in reference to the President: "It is common knowledge that African men, coming from the continent of Africa — especially for the first time — do diligently seek out white women to have sexual intercourse with. Generally the most noble of white society choose not to intercourse sexually with these men. So it’s usually the trashier ones who make their determinations that they’re going to have sex."
