Harlem Pastor Preaches 'Obama is Evil' on Church Signs

Gotta love it:
Harlemites have had enough of a local pastor posting signs at his prominently located church spewing hateful messages about President Obama.

Pastor James David Manning has put up "Obama Is Evil" and "He Used Black Vote to Uncle Tom For Wall St." on the towering sign outside the ATLAH World Missionary Church on the bustling corner of Lenox Ave. and W. 123rd St.

A church next to Manning's was so put off by the signs, officials posted their own - to make sure nobody thought their church had anything to do with ATLAH.

"This church is not affiliated with the church on the corner. We Support President Barack Obama," reads a sign above the front door of Greater Bethel A.M.E. Church.

The controversial sign at ATLAH, which Manning changes from time to time, has targeted Obama since he took office - and has become an attraction for pedestrians, as well as tourists passing by on double-decker buses.

"It's not something that represents this community," said Belynda M'baye, 53, who lives near the church and walks past the sign every day. "It sends out a message that all of Harlem is not supporting [Obama] and that's not true. I don't think that's the case in Harlem."
