James David Manning.The pastor of a controversial Church in Harlem that was recently condemned for hanging a sign outside that stated "Jesus would stone homos" has come out in defence of the billboard, suggesting he was only repeating was is said in the Bible.
In the video Manning said: "I never said that I would stone homos. I never said that I would ask anyone else to stone homos. I never said that. What I did say is what the Bible says, and I gave several verses within the Word of God that demonstrates why I believe that Jesus would stone homos."
"The homosexual activists are flat-out lying about what Jesus would do regarding the detestable, abominable, diseased practice and act of homosexuality. They have been lying and saying that Jesus would simply love," he added.
The film, which runs for nine scripture filled minutes, concludes by Manning reflecting: "I'm not a hater… I'm a preacher of the Word of God." HP.
