Harlem Church Blasts Obama for Unleashing ‘Homo Demons’

A Harlem church raised eyebrows this week when they posted a sign attacking President Barack Obama for releasing “the homo demons.” The ATLAH World Church, located at 123rd Street and Lenox avenue in Manhattan, also warned female African-American parishioners be concerned because a “white homo may take your man.”

The church’s pastor, James David Manning, has long been vocally critical of the president advocating for the rights of LGBT Americans.

“It’s an attempt to save the black family,” Manning told The New York Daily News. “There is a major problem in the black family with the absence of black fathers, black husbands.”

A number of neighborhood residents spoke with the Daily News and expressed their confusion over the signs message. “It’s just appalling,” said one resident. “It’s a poor representation of our neighborhood. It’s just hate.”
