Last year, New York Pastor James Manning claimed that Starbucks flavour their coffee with ‘sodomite semen’.
Starbucks is a place where these types [‘sodomites’] frequent and a lot of body fluids are exchanged there. The thing that I was not aware of is that … what Starbucks was doing, is they were taking specimens of male semen, and they were putting it in the blends of their lattes.
It’s the absolute truth. They’re using male semen, and putting it into the blends of coffees that they sell. Semen flavours up the coffee, and makes you thinks you’re having a good time.
His source and the reason he knows with certainty that his claims are absolute truth is the one you’d expect. God told him. Gay rights activists were on form, handing out free Starbucks coffee outside his church. He didn’t like that.
It turns out that Manning was in prison in the 70s for – among other things – burglary, robbery, larceny and criminal possession of a weapon. He says of that time:
I saw a lot of that activity [homosexual sex] going on in prison. It was par for the course. I was tempted, but I didn’t yield to temptation, by the way.
I’m not sure why he said this. Perhaps it was to suggest homosexuals are degenerate for acting on their desires; that homosexual desires are evil things that should and can be fought. Whatever, that doesn’t put him very far from much mainstream religion. I’m more interested in other things he’s said.
For example, he still thinks Starbucks sells semen-flavoured coffee and he knows why:
A number of people think that semen tastes good. A number of people think that drinking semen is a good idea.
Starbucks has deduced, in an ingenious way, that since so many people like semen, while they’re drinking it from one another, why not put it in our coffees?
This doesn’t explain why Starbucks uses only the finest sodomite semen though. And it doesn’t explain why they don’t put it on the menu.
But he hasn’t finished yet. He’s also decided that Justin Beiber is transgender:
These young girls, if we don’t stand, can be led to cut off their breasts once they get into puberty. They can be led to have operations like Justin Bieber. They can think the best choice in life is to cut off their breasts.
By the time they reach the age of 20 years old, they look and say “I wish I had never cut off my breasts, I wish I had never mutilated my flesh, I wish I had never cut off my penis, I wish I had never done that, I was just young”.
He makes it difficult for us to avoid applying armchair psychology, doesn’t he?
I will not as a pastor allow that to be said by any child that’s under my leadership.
He won’t let them say it (whatever he means by “it”). The choice of words seems telling.
I will chase every sodomite, I will chase every lesbo, I will chase every political leader with the power of God, with the chariots of fire, that these children be not misled by people in congregations and people in business or politics like Obama.
He doesn’t like Obama. He thinks Obama is gay and – for some reason – that Putin will out him.
They’re influencing these children to throw their lives away the way Justin Bieber threw his life away, and then 20 years old, can’t grow their breasts back. We need to wake the hell up.
Compassion just drips from every word, doesn’t it? I’ll end with one more quote, which speaks very much for itself:
God Almighty has given me the revelation threof that soon, after the court announces that they are to be protected by the Constitution to be sodomites, they’re gonna also start cannibalism. Every sodomite, every lesbo, every homo, every fag, every transvestite, every LBGT person by the year 2016 will have participated in some sort of cannibalism because they are demon-possessed. And they will do it with a smile on their faces. In fact, they will be scourging through and rummaging through the hospital medical waste looking for human waste.
People still go to his church.
