People have donated more than $100,000 to an LGBT homeless centre that is trying to buy a homophobic pastor’s church at auction.
Harlem’s infamous ATLAH World Missionary Church has attracted attention many times – primarily for signs advocating the death penalty for gay people. The church’s pastor James David Manning, meanwhile, famously claimed that Starbucks flavours lattes with the “semen of Sodomites”.
I am taking a vacation right now in New York City. But I still have posts and snark to do so that is what you are going to get.
Saturday we arrived and got settled in. Taxis were involved. We walked from our hotel down to Times Square, which is always crazy if you’ve never been. We took in the sights and then came back. If you’ve never seen a video then it looks a little like this:
Sunday we went through chinatown and had Dim Sum. Related: chopsticks are difficult.
We then went down to Times Square again. We saw the musical “Chicago,” which was pretty good!
Tuesday was full. We went to Wall Street, the 9/11 memorial, the meatpacking district and several other places.
There are more vids on my Instagram and more pics here:
I am out of town this week but I intend to still post because why invite you to read a blog that doesn’t post? If you are interested, there is a photo gallery on my FB page with the pics from the trip on it. So check it out.
***update*** the wifi here is atrocious so the pics might not be coming for a while.
