Vandalism of Harlem ATLAH World Missionary Church Sign that said, 'Obama Had Released the Homosexual Demons on Black Men', Is Being Investigated as a Hate Crime

The tables have turned.

Police are investigating the vandalism of the inflammatory sign at ATLAH World Missionary Church in Harlem over the weekend as a hate crime.

The unlikely situation stands to paint the church’s controversial pastor, James David Manning, who frequently adorned his marquee with blatantly vicious messages, in a sympathetic light.

“His signs were hateful,” said Carmen Neely, the president of Harlem Pride. “I think he should be investigated for hate speech.”

The pastor and his billboards are protected under the First Amendment, though, the New York Civil Liberties Union has said.

The fast-moving culprit climbed over the fence of the church, on W. 123rd St. near Lenox Ave., and spray-painted “God Is Gay” on both sides of the sign.
