Pastor James Manning runs a school inside Atlah World Missionary Church. Former students say he psychologically abuses kids, teaches them to hate gay people, and convinces parents to abandon their children.
The last thing Manning would ever fathom for the church space is it becoming NYC's largest homeless shelter and resource center for LGBTQ African American youth. And the Ali Forney Center has launched a fundraising drive to grab the space.
"This incident is outrageous and unforgivable and doesn’t represent what this district is."
This guy literally seems like he lives in a parallel universe.
