Neighbors confront controversial Harlem Pastor Atlah Reverend James David Manning over ‘hateful’ church sign

HARLEM — Controversial  Pastor James David Manning is drawing a lot of attention to his Atlah World Missionary Church on 123rd Street and Lenox Avenue in Harlem.  Pastor Manning is using the billboard outside his church to post what some say are hate filled anti-gay messages.
One sign reads “all churches and members that support h***s cursed be thou with cancer, HIV, syphilis, stroke, and madness.” Another says “Jesus would stone h***s”.
Neighbor and lesbian Sharifa Ferryman says the offensive messages are hard to avoid. “I ended up walking across the street  causes it’s so hurtful to hold my wife’s hand and these words every time I pass by.”
Pastor Manning , in a confrontation outside the church recorded by PIX11, told Ferryman: “You are going to hell for your insidious and wicked lifestyle. It’s a disgrace that you would stand here and confess that you have a relationship with another woman. It’s a disgrace before God.
