Harlem Hate Pastor: Confederates Were Biblically Correct About Slavery

“The south was right! They were noble! They were biblical! They were righteous! They had states’ rights! They were RIGHT! The north was and remains wrong to this very day.”

    Every day the these hate-mongers are shuffling deeper into their insanity.

    • Todd20036

      He basically is pathologically delusional, but he surrounded himself with acolytes who call his delusions real, rather than sending him to a psychiatrist for help

      • Rambie

        They’ve spent so much time sniffing their own FUD they wouldn’t know the truth.

    That should bring them thundering in to his church in Harlem.

    • Ginger Snap

      He’s trying to fleece the white supremacists now.

      • Chucktech

        Honey, they ain’t gonna give money to a colored guy.

      • noni

        Or organizing a new group called the Black Subservient Movement.

  • Sk3ptic

    Well, that SHOULD end his career…but we all know it inexplicably won’t.

    • HadenoughBS

      Uh, I’ve just one question about Manning’s “the South was right!” statements: he IS African-American, correct?

      • MarkOH

        I believe he is, so, back in the shackles for him. My guess, is he likes it.

        • Chucktech

          Hey, it’s biblical, the bible gives him a boner, ergo…

        • Bad Tom

          Well, you know…

          Some of us do like shackles. Nice, heavy, klinky, slinky, kinky shackles in leather and/or steel. And hoods, and saying Yes, sir! With perhaps a little whipping thrown in.

          But, if we call safeword, they come off and it stops.

          That’s really very different from how the Confederates ran things.

          • Rich Farias

            Well, how YOU doin’, boy?

          • Bad Tom

            Very well, Sir!

      • Mikey

        no, no, he identifies as White.
        presumably southern, bigot, plantation-owner, white.

        • Rich Farias

          Uncle Ruckus? Complete with revitilaigo, and praying to White Jesus?

      • That Other Jean

        Doesn’t spend a lot of time looking into the mirror, does he? Maybe he figures, like so many poor people who vote for their oppressors because they hope to be one of them someday, that he would have been one of the free black people who were rich enough to own slaves themselves. There were a few–very, very few. Or maybe he’s just nuts.

        • charliebkk

          I vote for nuts

      • noni

        According to him he is still a slave like all other blacks.

        I think he’s trying to get in good with the Republicans and Ben Carson so he can work in the house.

    • another_steve

      Institutional religion requires the surrender of intellect. You cannot fully be a participant if you bring your intellect into the picture.

      This neanderthal could tell his congregation that water is not really wet, and the $5 and $10 bills would still come pouring into his collection baskets.

      • Uncle Dave

        C’mon another_steve, don’t insult Neanderthals…

      • noni

        Isn’t that the “free market”?

        That is the whole premise of the Home Shopping Network.

        • another_steve

          Yes. The beauty of a truly free market is that “The Useful” prospers and “The Not-Useful” eventually fades away.

          That’s the way of nature, in my opinion.

          Which is why (again in my opinion) American Capitalism is the most perfect economic model — because it closely tracks the way nature conducts its essential business.

          • Bad Tom

            The difficulty is that useful doesn’t track ethical, except incidentally.

          • another_steve

            Astute, Tom.

            To which I would reply: In nature, “ethical” is a relative concept.

            Is it “ethical” when a young and struggling fawn is taken down by a hungry vulture? Or when lightening strikes one of us in our prime, and kills?

            Philosophical daoists (of which I am one) avoid looking at natural phenomena (which include the natural human instinct to engage in open market-ry) in terms of “ethics.”

          • Bad Tom

            That is a wise choice.

            When discussing natural phenomena, even “useful” fails. One can only really say “survives”. In the final analysis, that is the only criterion nature actually applies.

            That does not mean humans cannot aspire to be ethical in our choices.

          • Campbell

            Tom, I would go further and say that humans should actually be ethical in their choices. As I understand the Enlightenment experiment (except Rousseau of course) the extent to which a society had built upon and refined ‘natural’ instincts into ‘ethical’ behaviours was the mark of their progress.

            On that basis one might then say that unfettered capitalism may be a very natural model but is also not a very desireable one.

          • another_steve

            “That does not mean humans cannot aspire to be ethical in our choices.”

            Absolutely. So there arises the question of what constitutes “ethical” and how do we arrive at it.

            Philosophical daoism talks a lot about “unlearning” and “returning.” Returning to the “uncarved block” of our natures. The unlearning of rules such as “this is good conduct” and “this is bad.” When we divest ourselves of preconceived, taught ideas and act in accordance with what is “natural” for us, we tend to make better, more just, decisions.

            Not without controversy, that notion I just mentioned. Some would say that ethnic violence, for example, is a natural, almost Darwinian instinct to assert and promulgate ones genes. I rather think it’s learned behavior. Just as homophobia is learned behavior.

            The different ethnicities do better — prosper and thrive more — when they live in peace with their neighbors.

            Heterosexuals do better — prosper and thrive more — when they live in peace with LGBT people.

            “Peace” being that return to our natural state of being.

      And I say………………..

    • Hearing Manning is Torture

      He always makes posts about the two things that he hate most about himself: the fact that he is black and the fact that he is gay. Isn’t it obvious that he is a self-hater?

    • Corey (Occasionally Present)

      This is so sad. The reverend is so disgusted that his “vision” of how things should be (although he is lying about how things actually are) has not materialized that he is saying that God intended for the South to be victorious somehow. Sick and super sick and beyond sick…

  • M. Coen

    Somehow I don’t think he’d be praising anyone if he were the one in chains.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    So he wishes he was a slave? WTF?!?!?!? My brain hurts.

    • Rambie

      I think that’s their goal, make rational people’s brains hurt.

      • LonelyLiberal

        Success, mission accomplished!

    • Blake Jordan

      There are “free women” from the west that join ISIS, so there is no insanity that is impossible.

      • TampaZeke

        Better yet, there was a gay man and a trans woman who fled Russia to join ISIS because of the anti-gay laws in Russia. You just can’t make this shit up!

        • bsinps

          Nice picture of you and your husband TampaZeke.

          • TampaZeke

            Thanks.

    • Ginger Snap

      I know a few guys with nice dungeons if he really wants to be enslaved. Safe word optional.

      • Rebecca Gardner

        Now ya talking! Can I bring all my latex gear?

          All kink welcome in the dungeon.

    • Eric in Oakland

      He’d rather be a slave in a country that stigmatises gays than a free man in a country that grants equal rights to gay people. It’s pretty sad that anyone can value hatred for another group more than his own welfare and the welfare of his people.

      • TheFandomMenace

        Or he’s just lying. This statement pretty much seals the deal that he’s an attention whore who will say just about anything for the shock value alone.

    • noni

      Actually he says that he and all black people are still slaves.

  • LonelyLiberal

    I can’t even follow that, but I think I’m trying to filter it into a brain that’s reasonably sane most of the time.

    Perhaps on LSD? Naw, even then I’m sure I wouldn’t be a complete idiot.

  • Gregory In Seattle

    The supreme irony being that if the South had won, this pastor would not be permitted to speak his mind, or own property, or have a family, or keep his life for speaking to power, or….

    • noni

      and he’d be fine with that.

      • Bad Tom

        That is what he says now, while he can speak his mind, own property, have a family (Hmmm,) all protected by his Constitutional rights.

        Somehow I think if the shoe really were on the other foot, and he actually was a slave owned by another human (non-consensually,) he’d have a different view of it.

    • RoFaWh

      Looking into my crystal ball, I scry that had the south won the civil war and slavery maintained in the Confederacy, sooner or later there would have been an extremely bloody slave uprising along the lines of the Haitian slave rebellion (1791-1803) followed by the conversion of the Confederacy to a Black Republic.

      The course of history since 1860 suggests that absent such a rebellion, slavery would have become an ever poorer basis for the south’s economy and would have long since been abandoned by now, even in South Carolina, the slaviest of slave states.

      Writing this makes me wonder if a lot of the south’s economic difficulties since the Civil War are traceable to their former dependence on slave labor, cotton, and tobacco. They never learned how to make their own way in the world and the south remains, in many respects, a backwater even today.

  • Octavio

    Joe, that pretty much puts the cherry on top of the icing covering the nut cake, doesn’t it? What else do we need to know about your favorite pastor? His shoe size? 🙂

    • John P.

      No, just the size of his ankle for the shackles that he seems to be missing.

      • HadenoughBS

        I guess we shouldn’t be surprised if his Sunday choir shows up dressed in white robes and matching white hoods. That “Old South Jim Crow” look seems to be all the rage with Rev. Manning now.

  • SoCalVet

    self hate isn’t just for gays.

    • noni

      Yes Ken sMehlman and Ian Reisner and the entire Log Cabin Republican outfit.

      • noni

        After Ken fomented hatred toward gay people and caused almost all States to pass Constitutional Amendments in their states to prohibit marriage for same sex couples, he is now lecturing us all about how “using the Golden Rule” toward gay people is a way of gaining acceptance.

        I’m getting sick.

        He’s damn ugly inside and out. A classic horse face. He still hates himself.

        We have an obligation to continue hating him also, so that we don’t allow him or his kind to take over all the LGBT Organizations that have been put together to fight the Ken Mehlmans’. Mark my words, he very easily could become head of the HRC and be running the show.

    When is this guy going to be taken away in a straight jacket. He is cray-cray.

  • Tipsy

    See, this is the kinda stuff that first caught my attention about this guy— he’s a real life version of Uncle Ruckus from The Boondocks.

    • Christopher

      “…Uncle Ruckus from The Boondocks.”

      Perfect example!

      • brian

        And here I thought that I was alone in thinking that.

  • Gyeo

    Now where are all those Christianists saying conservative Christianity doesn’t support slavery?

  • bambinoitaliano

    The reasons we have genocides through out history is thanks to the kind of character like that. There’s no explanation as to why some serial killer kills, why certain human species are just genetically vile like this lump of human waste.

  • Treg Brown

    “Confederates were biblically correct about slavery”.

    Except they lost.

    • Chucktech

      The obvious corollary is that if Confederates were biblically correct about slavery then, then we must be biblically incorrect about slavery now, yes?

      Guess we gotta fix that…

      • Mawm

        God will remove his hand of protection from the US, because we ended slavery. He just hasn’t gotten around to it yet. I mean, what is 150 years next to the age of the earth, 6000 years?

        • Bad Tom

          So, God is a lazy, procrastinating fuck.
          I kinda like that in a God.

          • Tor

            As long as he doesn’t go all Genesis on us.

          • Bad Tom

          • Bad Tom

            So, in seven to fourteen thousand years, we can expect some action.
            None of us have to worry, then.

    There is no responding to him anymore.

    • Mawm

      You weren’t already sold by the spunk in the starbucks comment?

      • Bad Tom

        But he provides some of the most delicious, snarkable comment fodder of anyone!

  • Regan DuCasse

    I think some people in life, who are decent, try to live their lives so that if they leave a mark of distinction, it’s for doing real good in the world. The school teacher, the nurse, the peace officer, the soldier…the garbage man, the postal clerk, or you have artistic people whose wish for posterity is through their work.
    Some with powerful political statements or ways of having the world see people who’d otherwise be forgotten. Like the people on the other side of Dorothy Lange or Gordon Parks’s lenses.

    You have outstanding ministers who put their LIVES on the line, like Dr. King or Bishop Tutu, for their compassion and brilliant oratory.

    Then you have this pastor, or Tony Perkins, or people who aren’t the least bit grateful, that but for their anti gay obsessions, wouldn’t have a job anywhere else, evidently.
    I’m sure I speak for a lot of people here on JMG when I say, don’t these people like this pastor have ANYTHING better to do?

  • Christopher

    Seriously?!

    I cannot believe this statement was uttered by a person of colour!

  • Ginger Snap

    He’s cock teasing the white supremacists.

    • Friday

      I’ve been kind of noticing that. Has to be the sort of crazy that suits guess what kind of people, of course.

  • shivadog

    The sad thing is that he is basically right, the bible supports slavery. Nuts like him and the WBC actually follow the bible more than most Christians who pick and choose which parts are the “unchanging word of god” and which parts are “not to be taken literally”

    • That Other Jean

      Most Christians aren’t literalists who believe that every word of the bible is true and inspired by God and applicable for all people at all times. Most acknowledge that it’s a collection of books written over a long period of time for a lot of different reasons. It contains poetry, parables, letters, advice, myths, “history,” and instruction to the people for whom it was written.

      Yes, slavery was acknowledged in the bible, as it existed then. Most Christians have come to the conclusion that slavery was wrong, whatever the bible says about it. That leaves the conservative, literalist folks like Manning to defend it in the present, and be regarded as wrong by their fellow Christians, and as nuts by everybody else.

      • shivadog

        Slavery was not just “acknowledged” in the bible, it was condoned. Anyway, one of the big problems with religion is that either people take it literally, which means approving of slavery, genocide and all sorts of nasty stuff in the bible, or they don’t take it literally and just use it to pretend that their opinion is endorsed by god. Either way, society would be better off if we evolved beyond such nonsense.

  • DaveMiller135

    I’ve joked about this guy having tertiary syphilis, but this is real evidence of mental illness. Hope his coping mechanisms improve.

    • noni

      Just because someone believes in an imaginary sky daddy and fairy tale book doesn’t mean they are mentally ill.

      They are just religious.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        There is quite a difference between being religious and some of this man’s statements. Taken as a whole, this man has some very obvious mental health issues and it’s terribly sad that no one cares enough to get him help.

        • RoFaWh

          Always keep in mind that there’s an alternative explanation: he’s a very gifted grifter who’s discovered that the more outrageous his statements, the better his cash flow.

          • Schlukitz

            Show me a phatuous, phundamentalist phony like this, who is financially bereft.

            Just one.

            I rest my case.

          • Tor

            I’m sure he has his eye on a $60M jet.

          • Wynter Marie Starr

            Normally I would agree with that statement, RoFaWh. But when an African American man with an African American flock claims that slavery was justified, I have to think there is a little something deeper going on. There’s outrageous and then there’s utter lunacy. I’m really not sure how gifted a grifter he is either. I’m not sure that he’s got a national platform.

      • Schlukitz

        If they are religious…they ARE mentally ill!

        And the people who donate money to him to preach this kind of racist, homophobic, sick shit, are equally fucked in the head.

        • noni

          I was hoping my comment would be a lightbulb moment for those who haven’t figured it out or insist on believing the religious have to be pandered to. Some of the religious claim that others are taking over their religion (screeching NALT), however they seem to be fine with that. Their silence tells me they like that their religion has been taken over and they’re fine with the hate spewed by their members. Even encourage it. I have to assume that the vast majority of the religious love the hate because there is such a small, small minority of them that speak out against it.

  • Rick

    Oh brother.

  • ben-andy

    Um, I think this is funny/crackpot [and that’s disrespectful to crack addicts and potheads, but I’m using in homage to Caracatus Potts]. I will let black people decide if he’s right about slavery. I’d personally donate to help crowdfund him transportation to any place he can experience “biblical enslavement”, permanently.

  • bkmn

    I would love to ask the black people that attend his “church” how they feel about this statement.

        I guess some people may go there to avoid paying ticket prices for a real freak show.

  • SFBruce

    For once, he’s kinda on to something; slavery is indeed biblical.

  • BearEyes

    Is this asshole trolling us with some sort of performance art?
    Is he really ok with slavery?

    • noni

      He’s ok with slavery as long as someone else is the slave. Nothing surprising there, that’s the classic Republican position on all topics.

  • noni

    Imagine what Christians preach “behind” church doors.

  • Elaygee

    I need a new cleaning lady. I’ll spiff up the basement, add chains and bars and he’s welcome to have at it. That is unless he prefers to be a field slave.

  • Rocketeer500

    I’m sure Manning’s congregation just loves to hear that the south was right, the north was wrong. States rights, States rights, oh, by the way, you’re only 3/5 a person.

    • Tor

      3/5 of a person for counting purposes. In reality, they were 0/0 of a person.

  • rednekokie

    If he feels so strongly about it, I’m sure he could find some willing slaveholders who would gladly put his arse in chains and enjoy free labor – perhaps mowing yards in our hot Oklahoma sun.

  • Jmdintpa

    so he would be ok with has ass thrown out in the field in 95 degree heat chopping cotton all day… he would be ok with his ass thrown off the bus if he fails to get up out of the white peoples way… sounds like his maker just needs to go ahead and call him home to hell where he belongs.

    He says the Bible says not to punish slaves harshly, yet the Bible states that if a slave dies on the second or third day as a result of being beaten by his master that’s just fine and dandy, because a slave is property.

    Sounds a bit harsh to me.

  • Toasterlad

    I mean, sure, he’s right: the South WAS biblically correct about slavery, in that that bible, like the South, is pro-slavery. But even the most looney evangelicals know to downplay that part of it in 2015.

    I wonder how many people who saw this man as a prophet of god for his extreme homophobia and shouted AMEN! every time he splashed anti-gay hate on his infamous billboard will now be shocked and offended by this latest proclamation from their prophet?

    I’ll actually give him credit for being consistent. Those who use the bible to denounce gay people but not to support slavery are not the “bible believing” Christians they claim to be.

    • gaymex

      Let’s see what happens when he posts that shit on his sign in Harlem.
      I couldn’t listen to all of his rant, did he perchance also rattle on about the benefits of the Klan for keeping uppity folk in line?

  • Gerry Fisher

    “Give me my chains back!”

  • Ah, so he’s not only a loon, but he’s a self-hating loon. This explains a *lot*. $5 says he’s got a little black book of boys in the back room.

  • Bob Conti

    This guy reminds me of Uncle Ruckus from The Boondocks.

  • pleasebereasonable

    He is correct about the bible…..why he still clings to that immoral bullshit is a different question altogether.

  • bsinps

    Pre Ronald Reagan, Manning would be in a insane asylum in which he belongs. Damm you Reagan !!!

  • popebuck1

    Well, ya know… he’s right, at least as far as the Bible goes. The Bible says to be nice to your slaves and not abuse them, and for slaves to be obedient to their masters, but nowhere do the authors of the Bible ever even contemplate getting rid of the institution of slavery itself.

    And Constitutional? Yep, as originally written, he’s right about that too. Three-fifths of a person and all that.

    So he’s saying we therefore have to go BACK to that?! It’d be a shame, after fighting a whole war over it and all. But I guess the alternative would be to admit the Bible doesn’t constitute the law of the land, and that the Constitution is designed to adapt to changing societal values over time. And I guess that’s too frightening a possibility to even consider.

    Maybe he’s just smug because he knows New York was never a slave state, so he’s in no danger himself. But sheesh – way to sell your brothers and sisters down the river, dude. Literally.

  • KarenAtFOH

    He pretty much has to say this if he’s going to stay consistent with his line of hate towards us. He has willingly given over his mind to the idea that 6 verses in the Bible justify cruel, inhuman, disgusting, and unconstitutional treatment of LGBTQ people. I believe he would support the idea that we be treated with more cruelty and disdain than even slaves. The Bible never says slaves are abominations worthy of death. Such is the inhumanity of fundamentalist thinking. He is not so much insane as he is willfully, cruelly ignorant of compassion, love, and a sense of justice and fairness. He has much more in common with a psychopathic criminal.

  • A Big Sarcastic Fairy!

    WTF? And his so called “flock” believes this shit?

  • Well, technically, he correct – the Bible does endorse slavery, and slavery does, kind of, keeps people ’employed’. But he seems very confused about ‘States Rights’ – the right sought by the South was the right to leave the Union, which is A) not in the Constitution, and B) can’t be a ‘State’s Rights’ issue because they cease to be states governed by the Constitution…..

  • Bj Lincoln

    I can’t watch this. I can not watch a black man tell me the South was right. This should prove how insane he really is. I truly hope this is the this nutjobs career.

  • Elsewhere1010

    As someone else pointed out in another thread, it seems more and more were looking at the effects of neurosyphilis.

    Seems as though the spirochetes may have made it to the spinal column.

  • MikeBx2

    I’m not surprised the attention addict would say such a thing, but who are the people who show up at his church services?

  • JustSayin

    So god doesn’t like black people according to him and god has not set them free so what Lincoln did was wrong because god said states have rights to enslave people

    Yeah that makes sense if you live a clorkwork orange kinda life.

    Now all you had hating self loathing negroes with degrees , good Jobs, your own home , and the right not to be beat or chained; or have your kids and family sold need to get back in the fields and chop some more cotton and sing some spirituals.,..Doh!

  • sword

    I bet the Harlem Pastor would have liked a job down on a Southern plantation as the main slave overseer. Just like there were Jewish
    overseers at Nazi concentration camps.

  • anne marie in philly

    if you think the south is so fucking great, h8er, THEN MOVE THERE! get outta harlem!

  • Michael Varian Daly

    The whole ‘gay marriage – Confederate flag’ thing seems to have driven some of these folks right over the edge.

  • RottenJohnny

    It would be biblically correct to stone this idiot for cutting his hair, eating shellfish, and a myriad assortment of any number of ridiculous nonsense.

  • Villabolo

    Joe, could you please post the name of that Pastor? I downloaded that video (and others like them) and I need the name because I arrange my list in alphabetical order.

    • Villabolo

      Never mind, I found his name 🙂

  • KnownDonorDad

    Uncle Ruckus!

  • Macbill

    White man polluted the minds of the slaves with Christian promises that the Weak Will Inherit the Earth; that rich man won’t see heaven, etc. Christ has not been good to the Black Man overall.

    • Steven Leahy

      A very effective means of controlling the masses

  • Alencon

    Anyone bother to tell this dunce they used to lynch black folks on a regular basis back in the old south?

  • Steven Leahy

    He makes videos and comments about his own race like the ones in this video ALL the time; this is nothing unusual. His two biggest objects of hatred are gays and blacks.

    My head hurts after watching this video. 🙁

    • Steven Leahy

      He has DOZENS like this, all on race

  • Steven Leahy

    Maybe all of his videos have been satire all along and we just don’t see it? 🙂

    When slavery is re-instated by the Republicans would it still be limited to blacks as the slaves or can we have whites also.

    Does the bible only allow blacks as slaves?

    • sandollar_man

      The Bible doesn’t specifically refer to black people as slaves, but it does condone slavery in both OLD & NEW testaments.
      Jesus existed inside the Roman empire. It was the largest institutional slavery ring in history. Yet there are no quotes of Jesus saying anything about that biggest injustice that he would have faced in his daily life. Curious.
      Here are a few possibilities:
      1) He owned slaves and so was fine with it.
      2) He didn’t own slaves but was just fine with it anyway.
      3) He couldn’t do anything about it so he concentrated on blabbing about some fictitious afterlife, like all the other soothsayers.
      4) He didn’t have the power or prescience to deal with THE biggest injustice of his age and so couldn’t transcend the barbarity of his time.
      5) The people who wrote about him owned slaves and so decided to only use that part of his story that they agreed with.

      In either of these cases, he comes across as somewhat of a weak figure as far as god’s go. In fact, so weak, that now we always portray him in a submissive, torture position on a cross.

  • Jim in TO

    How does this man still have any members in his primarily black community church? You would think him saying the racists in the south were right would pretty much result in a mass exodus.

    • leastyebejudged

      The spectrum of people is always much greater than most people are aware. The categories we arrange people in are purely artificial. The map is not the territory. There are a LOT of religious black people just like him. You should meet some radical black Muslims, they’re a real hoot to hang around too.

  • Halou

    James David Manning is one of the reasons why black Americans are not doing as well as they ideally could.

  • Halou

    He’s as bad as the daesh’s favorite Yazidi.

  • leastyebejudged

    Well, he is right about the Bible condoning slavery, I just wonder why it is that if he’s so sure it’s so correct, he isn’t picking cotton, where he belongs.

  • Max_1
  • I.Smith

    If God cannot change his mind about abortion, suicide or anything to do with homosexuality according to Christians then how does Manning think that God would of done anything to free the slaves when it was all his idea in the first place.

  • Gorkontonomous

    Well, I suppose he is being accurate. The bible does condone slavery, and many southern leaders used the bible to protect the institution of slavery.

    Hopefully people that listen to this nutter will really sit down and think about that…but I doubt it.

    Oh, and he also thinks that blacks are worse off now than in slavery. Maybe he should ask the slaves?

  • ted-

    Do people ever listen to themselves talk. Feces just come flying out and they don’t pay mind to it.
