Notoriously homophobic preacher James David Manning, who thinks Starbucks flavour their coffees with semen, has admitted he is “tempted” by the gay lifestyle.

The pastor of ATLAH Missionary Church in Harlem, New York, warned last year that Starbucks coffees are flavoured with the “semen of sodomites”.

Mr Manning was asked whether he had been tempted by the gay lifestyle in an interview with the Young Turks.

He replied: “Absolutely, no doubt about it. I spent three and a half years in prison.

“I saw a lot of that activity going on in prison. It was par for the course.

He quickly added: “I was tempted, but I didn’t yield to temptation, by the way. You need to know that.

“Make sure you publish that, as well.”

The pastor also repeated his infamous claim, saying: “A number of people think that semen tastes good. A number of people think that drinking semen is a good idea.

“No, I don’t think that myself personally, I’m just giving you the references of what other people say.

“You’ve got literally millions of people around the who that really think that the taste of semen is quite a flavour, and they seek it in the midst of other kinds of activities.

“Starbucks has deduced, in an ingenious way, that since so many people like Semen, while they’re drinking it from one another, why not put it in our coffees?”
