The famously anti-LGBT Atlah Church is being forced into a public foreclosure auction on February 24th. The Harlem church, located at W. 123rd Street and Malcolm X Boulevard, is notorious for posting hateful messages, such as “Jesus would stone homos” and “Obama has released the homo demons on the black man.” Now it’s in trouble for accumulating over 1 million dollars in debt and will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
ROLW’s fundraising page states that it “is a church built on the Christian message of radical inclusion with a unique focus on ministering to the needs of the LGBT community, while casting a net wide enough to be a home to ALL seeking the liberating power of the Gospel. Now that the hate spewing anti-LGBT ATLAH church is going up for auction, we believe it would be divine justice to replace that church with our ‘radically inclusive and open and affirming’ ministry.”
ROLW has raised over $16K so far, but their goal is the full $1.2 million.
