Ali Forney Center Nears Campaign Goal to Buy Hate Church: James Manning Vows to Fight Sale

By James Knight on Feb 05, 2016 08:15 PM EST

UPDATE: Earlier this week we reported that the Ali Fornery Center was attempting to raise funds in order to buy the infamous hate Church Atalh Worldwide Church in Harlem. The church lead by James David Manning is known for using their sign to spread hate aimed at the LGBT community. The church has been up for sale because of past tax debt among many other financial troubles. Now as Ali Forney is getting close to their goal, Manning is threatening to fight back.

Dr. James David Manning isn’t too happy with the Ail Forney Center’s attempt to buy the church, as LGBTQ Nation quotes:

“We’re not going to be pushed like this. I’m tired of people ramming their ideas down one’s throat.”

It should be noted that LGBTQ Nation’s report says that he literally thumped a Bible while making his statement.

The church reportedly owes $355.000 in federal tax liens and other debts. Manning missed an April 2015 due date to pay creditors $1.02 million.

Manning is planning to fight the sale of the church, claiming;

“I don’t plan to pay up, but if I had to, I could. I wouldn’t give this building up.”

At the time of this report the Ali Forney Center had raised $186,355 towards their $200,000 goal. You can support the campaign by visiting
