Donald Trump Met with Pastor Who Believes Starbucks Lattes Contain the “Semen of Sodomites”

Yesterday, Donald Trump held a highly-publicized/total-flameout meeting with several black ministers in an effort to show how much their community supports him.

In a revelation that will surprise absolutely none of you, one of those pastors was James David Manning, better known as the guy who thinks Starbucks’ lattes contain the “semen of sodomites.” Manning also uses anti-gay slurs when referring to people in the LGBT community.

Judge Says World War I Memorial in the Shape of a Giant Cross Does Not Promote Christianity

Joshua Feuerstein Tries and Fails to Rationalize His Video Calling for Attacks on Planned Parenthood

The other day, I posted a video clip in which Christian evangelist
Joshua Feuerstein told his followers to go after doctors who provide abortion services.
