Pastor Manning: Cover Sheriff Arpaio with prayer

In a new video, Pastor James David Manning is calling for Christians to “cover Sheriff Arpaio in prayer.”

In the video, Manning makes false statements about the President’s social-security number and then says:

I’m at this moment calling upon all noble citizens and patriots to encamp and encircle Sheriff Joe Arpaio in prayer. … We know how dangerous the world that we now live in is and how exposed Sheriff Joe Arpaio is at present. We need to cover him in prayer. We need to start a prayer chain.

Pastor Manning also says that if Arpaio is not successful in having Obama removed from power, Manning expects to go to jail. We’ll be watching to see how that works out.

As a Christian, I agree with requests to pray for Sheriff Arpaio, and I think we should pray for Pastor Manning, and for Barack Obama too. However, I strongly condemn the lies that Manning promotes under the guise of religion.

The full video runs 18 minutes.

    While I sypathize with you wanting to share in praying for them, I don’t think the kind of “praying” that Manning is doing is the same as yours, Doc :P

    It seems to me that these people have a no regard for the Majesty of God. My Bible teaches me to pray for our leaders. Yes, that included President Bush. I wonder if Pastor Manning prays for President Obama.

    Well, based on his well documented public record of his “pastoral prayer messages”, he certainly does NOT pray for Obama in the way that you intend the term.

    His disgusting intent is made quite clear. It represents the exact opposite of what most of us were raised to view as the purpose for prayer. I consider such abuses to be an extremely unacceptable breach of responsibility when done by anyone under the guise of the cloth. There are many wicked people who merely wrap themselves in the cover of religion in order to push self-serving agendas and ones of ill-intent towards others. There is no question that Manning is acting in bad faith.

    I listened as long as I could, sorry to say 0. He did manage to mangle the crap out of “Cushing”, tho! Manning sounds as if he’s suffering from chronic abdominal pain. Does he wear a corset or something? I managed to make it through his grand jury presser, but couldn’t do it here.

    Manning is an ex con who any pastor who is really a man of God would not be caught anywhere near……he’s a con man and I think some mental illness is at work here, too.

    I’m not being mean. I think he and, say, Orly Taitz are clearly not stable mentally. You can’t tell them this, of course, and they both are the type of folks who would NEVER believe that they might benefit from some sort of mental evaluation and even anti-anxiety medication, but there you have it.

    What I am certain Manning is NOT is a man who is even remotely interested in Christianity or what it means.

    Manning has several felony and misdemeanor convictions. He is also a racist, in the true sense of the word. He actually has promoted the idea that Harlem be only available to black residents.

    “James David Manning, pastor of the ATLAH World Missionary church on Lenox Avenue, has received press for declaring a boycott on all Harlem shops, restaurants, other businesses, and churches other than his own. He believes that this will cause an economic crash that will drive out white residents and drop property values to a level his supporters can afford.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harlem

    Interesting fact: Bill Clinton’s New York office is in Harlem.

    More interesting: Nancy Cunard, an heir to the Cunard Line shipping businesses, went to live in Harlem with a black man, in 1928. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nancy_Cunard

    LMAO! Kudos and I’ll award another +1000 to you for referencing the Invisible Pink Unicorn.

    For anyone either scratching their heads at these religious references or who simply wonder about the conflict between the two, the epic battle between their belief structures has been captured into song and most of the tenents of their mythologies are fairly well represented:

    From the IPU, Chapter 2 of the Book of the Prophet April:

    1. And the Invisible Pink Unicorn spoke unto me, and said, “Write this stuff down.”
    2. Therefore did I search my pockets, and came up with a bunch of 3×5 index cards, and also a ballpoint pen.
    3. Then did Her Equine Self touch the pen with Her marvellous horn, and lo! it turned pink! And I was much amazed, and began jotting down this account.
    4. And I said unto the Principle of Unicornity, “If we’re going to be really appropriate, shouldn’t this be in invisible ink?”
    5. Surely then was the Great One annoyed, and She spake, and said, “Do not be a wise-ass, my child, unless you want a hoof-print in your forehead. But, if you must know, when you post this to the Internet, which is the centre of My worship, then indeed shall the pinkness of the writing be invisible.”
    6. Thus was I first afflicted by the terrible jokes of Her Invisible Pink Glory.
    7. And the Unicorn spoke again, saying, “Write this. First, know that there is not merely one doom reserved for unbelievers, but a Very Big Number. Therefore am I shown to be greater than any other deity.
    8. For who else can boast the Hell #655, wherein transgressors are punished by having to listen to the endless drivel of uncountable net.kooks?”
    9. “Who else can boast Hell #333, where fundamentalists are continually sawn in half by stage magicians?”
    10. “Oh, and note down that there is no Hell #666.
    11. For that would be too easy.”
    12. So did I write all that down, and the Invisible Unicorn said, “Come again next week.”
    13. And the Holy Writings on the Sacred 3×5 Index Cards in the Blessed (Invisible) Pink Ink were put in the Very Devout Plastic File Box, where I left them, buried in the sands of A/sa/teague.

    There’s nothing sadder than Jews for Jesus or people like Pam “Atlas” Geller who fraternizes with Dutch neo-nazis believing somehow that they look at her as an honorary Aryan, whereas the truth is that, were they to gain power, she’d be the first in the train to Auschwitz.

    Manning is the same kind of deluded fool who thinks that somehow the freepers will treat him as an Honorary White when the cowls come out.

    Agreed. Except the appropriate terms to describe their ironically inappropriate choices of hate-based “strange bedfellows” are much more foul than the term “sadder” can do justice to…

    JFJ are nothing more than latter day concentration camp capos. Geller is an Islamophobe. She forgets Jews were better off in the Ottoman Empire, than in Europe; they did not live in fear. Paying a tax was more advanced than a pogrom.

    You dare to use a Modern English translation? Heresy. The only correct version is the KJMTV (Kiddy Jimmy Most Truthy Version).

    “… And She spakest thus and said, ‘Be not an ass of the wisest, thy child, unless thou desirest a print of the most blessed hoof upon thy crown.'”

    5. Surely then was the Great One annoyed, and She spake, and said, “Do not be a wise-ass, my child, unless you want a hoof-print in your forehead. But, if you must know, when you post this to the Internet, which is the centre of My worship, then indeed shall the pinkness of the writing be invisible.”
