A minister recently promoted in a tweet
by Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter is seen in a video sermon urging
people to use words such as “fag” and “bulldagger” to
describe gay men and lesbians.
Coulter's recent tweet noted a sign
outside Pastor James David Manning's New York-based ATLAH World
“MY NEW CHURCH!” Coulter messaged
on October 26. “Standing in front of pastor Manning's church.
Look at this sign.”
The sign read: “The blood of Jesus
When asked why she starred the tweet,
Palin, the former governor of Alaska, told ABC News' Jake Tapper that
she had made a mistake.
“Jake, I've never purposefully
'favorited' any Tweet,” she said. “I had to go back to
BlackBerry to even see if such a function was possible.”
On Sunday, Manning railed against being
gay in a videotaped message posted on YouTube.
“If the church doesn't stand up and
push back against homosexuality, five years from now we're going to
have to deal with the acceptability of beastiality. A man having sex
with a lamb or with a goat or with a cow or with a donkey. Or women
having sex with dogs.”
“We got to push it back, because if
we don't your granddaughter might decide that she's ugly – well,
she doesn't have to be – so she will fall in love with her dog.
And she and her dog will have sex.”
“I've stated we ought to use strong
language, like fag, bulldaggers, sodomites.”
Manning continues, insisting that
what he is advocating is not hatred, and then goes on to describe
that AIDS was created in a gay man's rectum.
“A lot people say that AIDS was
created in the toilet of some homosexual man. That's where it was
created. It wasn't created in the vagina. But it was created in a
man's toilet,” he says. (The video is embedded in the right panel
