Pastor Manning, who's known for vitriolic anti-LGBT hate speech, is in massive debt. An organization that provides shelter for homeless LGBT youth is raising money to buy the building his church is housed in. Do you believe this is right?

Pastor Manning, who's known for vitriolic anti-LGBT hate speech, is in massive debt. An organization that provides shelter for homeless LGBT youth is raising money to buy the building his church is housed in. Do you believe this is right?
  • Yes, buying Manning's church to house LGBT youth is a much better use of the building.

    Yes, the LGBT shelter organization should definitely buy the church from Manning. Any religious figure who preaches against LGBT people should be ousted, and using the places they once spewed hate to help the very people they preached against is a much better use of resources. It would be a symbol of changing attitudes as well as a practical aid center, which is exactly the right use for these buildings.

  • That's a good way to respond.

    It's a good way to respond to hate to turn the hateful person's property into a shelter for LGBT youth. Perhaps it will teach this pastor a thing or two about compassion and kindness. It is a good way to turn over a new leaf and add some good karma to the property. This change will help others and turn the pastor's hate into something good.

  • Yes, I believe it is right that the organization is raising money to buy the building.

    I sure do believe it is right that the Ali Forney Center is raising money to purchase the ATLAH church in the hopes of providing homes for homeless LGBT youth in Harlem. Would it not be sweet, poetic justice if the building that formerly housed Pastor Manning who spewed hate speech against the LGBT community became a home to these young people?

  • No, it is not right that a homeless LGBT youth shelter is buying Pastor Manning's church.

    No, it is not a good idea for a homeless shelter for LGBT youth to raise money to buy Pastor Manning's church because the building itself has been a venue for anti-LGBT hate speech and has represented everything the organization fights to destroy. Bringing attention to his hate-filled rhetoric sends the message that this type of speech and behavior is acceptable for society.
