Quote:In January 2016, a state judge ordered Atlah Worldwide Church to be sold at a public foreclosure auction after failing to pay creditors more than $1.02 million, court records show.[22] The Church maintains they are afforded tax exempt status by the New York Supreme Court and are not liable for the fines[23] citing the Court's ruling in December 2004.[24]

The Ali Forney Center announced their interest in acquiring it for the purposes of an LGBT youth homeless services center, and raised $200,000 in two weeks from a fund-raiser to achieve that goal.[25][26] A temporary stay on the sale was granted pending a full hearing on 21, April 2016. Carl Siciliano of the Ali Forney Center plans using the time to research the property and put a favorable financial package together.[27]

Manning owes $1.02 million through unpaid tax, unpaid water bills and general debts. His church, was due for public auction but a temporary stay has been granted. The Ali Forney Center, a nonprofit organization providing transitional homes for homeless LGBT youth reached its target of $200,000 to buy the church as of February 9, 2016.[9][10] [11]

"Ali Forney, who inspired the founding of the organization, was murdered in Harlem in 1997, only 12 blocks from ATLAH. In 2013 Islan Nettles was beaten to death in Harlem only one mile from ATLAH. Could there be a more just outcome to the ATLAH foreclosure than that the young LGBT people most endangered by the hatred and contempt Manning promotes would take over his building?(Carl Siciliano, Ali Forney Center founder)[9]"

Manning maintains this sale will not happen unless "men give birth through their anus".[12][13] Manning said that he and his congregation will barricade themselves inside the church and arm themselves to stop new owners taking possession of it.[14] Manning maintains the whole building should be tax exempt but tax authorities disagree as parts of the building are used for different purposes.[15] A stay has been granted pending a full court hearing on April 21.[16] Carl Siciliano is pleased his organization has more time for research and to develop a favorable financial package.

"While we are excited at the possibility of acquiring the building at auction, we were anxious at needing to rush quickly into this process. The temporary restraining order allows us time to gain more knowledge and strengthen our position. (...) No matter the outcome of the legal hearing, our youth have already won.(Carl Siciliano)[17]"

Carl Siciliano notes sufficient money has been raised to acquire housing space for homeless LGBT young people at ATLAH or elsewhere. Sicliano sees it as a victory for the gay community and their allies and believes it shows they are a compassionate society who reject James Manning's hate message.[17]

I think they are attacking him because he's anti Obama. This is obvious. The IRS is the enforcement arm of the govt.

No wonder Cruz isn't gonna win. He keeps talking about shutting down the IRS.
