From today's Nashville City Paper: Reverend T.J. Graham, midday talk show host at WVOL-1470AM, a Nashville radio station with a primarily black audience, had as a guest Rev. James David Manning, the pastor of Harlem's Atlah Worldwide Church.
In the article, Rev. Graham described Rev. Manning as 'controversial'...
“This man has been trashing Barack Obama in a fashion that makes what the Rev. Jeremiah Wright said sound mild,” Graham said of Manning. “He’s called Obama’s mother trash, and is on the record as saying any black man who hasn’t been in jail can’t be trusted. He’s downing him in very specific and vicious language.”So, being charitable and cautious, I searched the web for information on Rev. Dr. Manning. I've found some good stuff. And, Dr. Manning has a new fan! Like Dr. Bill Cosby, Rev. Manning has sharp criticism for those who deserve it.
But, there's some not-so-loving articles and put-downs from non-fans (who would rather hear the weak-link stuff that stifles self-sufficiency...)
Rev. James David Manning, the pastor of Harlem's Atlah Worldwide church, insulted Barack Obama by calling the presidential candidate "trash" and a "mack daddy".This YouTube video shows some serious sermon, buddy. This man doesn't pull any punches. Just see for yourself.
"His African-in-heat father went a-whoring after a trashy white woman," said Manning, who is a proclaimed Clinton supporter. "[Obama] was born trash."
"He got started -- you didn't notice him 'til he brought out those big-chested white women with their tight T-shirts and their short pants," said Manning about how Obama started his campaign. "That's what a pimp does He's a mack daddy. He pimps white women and black women. Obama is a long-legged mack daddy."
Rev. Manning's telling Obama supporters to get up and be men, describing black men as "the weakest men on the planet" because of affirmative action. This is strong stuff, and something that is worth hearing. "The future of the African-American people is in my mouth..."
I would listen to this man. He speaks build strength, where others in the black community seek to enable their personal power by plying on and pandering to weaknesses. You listening, Jesse?
"Barack is an emissary of the devil...I'm your last hope"
Whoo boy, this makes me want to go out and get two or three part-time jobs and please, pass that collection plate around twice!
