A lesbian has posted video of her
asking an anti-gay church in Harlem, New York to stone her.
Pastor James David Manning, who helms
the ATLAH World Missionary Church, last week proclaimed on his church
sign: “Jesus would stone homos. Stoning is still the law.”
The message includes a reference to
Leviticus 20:13, which reads, “If a man lies with a man as with a
woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely
be put to death; their blood is upon them.”
Manning reportedly reiterated this
claim in a YouTube video which has since been taken down.
“Stoning of the homos is now in
order,” Manning said. “Stoning is still the law.”
In her video, Jennifer Louise Lopez
visits the church and asks to be stoned.
“I saw your sign. And I'm here for
my stoning. I'm a lesbian,” she tells a man who refuses to give
his name. “You guys are going to stone me? … Is it you that's
going to stone me?”
“No, I don't have any stones,” the
man replies from the church door.
“Are you going to send a person to
“He's not here,” the man says.
“Come back tomorrow.”
“So, you're not going to stone me?
Alright, thank you,” she adds.
