Earlier this week, the Inquisitr reported on how James David Manning, a prominent pastor in Harlem of New York City, claimed that Starbucks would be “ground zero” for Ebola. His reasoning is because Starbucks is a staunch supporter of civil rights for those who partake in the LGBTQ lifestyle, thus their bistros are prime hot spots for the spread of diseases.
Now James David Manning is making a new claim that Starbucks is using semen samples as ingredients for their coffee beverages.
According to both the Huffington Post and the International Business Times, James David Manning took to his daily radio show, The Manning Report, to discuss his claims that Starbucks would be hot spots for Ebola. His theory became so viral on the internet that during the day the Pennsylvania Oath Keepers came to ATLAH Worldwide Church, Harlem residents in support of the LGBTQ lifestyle protested them by serving Starbucks coffee to pedestrians just passing by. Liz Jackson, a blogger and activist for the Huffington Post, was part of the protest, and took plenty of pictures. Check out the gallery below.
After recapping his previous claim, James David Manning made a new claim: that Starbucks uses semen samples to spice up their coffee beverages.
The exact words Manning said are quoted below.
“Starbucks is a place where these types frequent and a lot of body fluids are exchanged there. But the thing that I was not aware of is that there has been information that has been released and the Inquisitr online news service carried us a major story a week before that what Starbucks was doing, is they were taking specimens of male semen, and they were putting it in the blends of their lattes. Now, this is the absolute truth.”
James David Manning used the Inquisitr as a source, specifically the article questioning if Starbucks uses semen samples in their coffee beverages nationwide, and that an FDA investigation is being initiated. He went on to say he believes that Starbucks does use semen samples, and even made a reference on how Coca-Cola formerly used cocaine as an ingredient in their soda pop. The only issue with his claim is that his source concludes their report that Starbucks does not use semen in their coffee beverages, and the site that originally reported such a claim is known for satire news.
What do you think about James David Manning’s claim that Starbucks uses semen samples in their coffee beverages? Do you stand by him despite news outlets already debunking the myth, or do you think Manning is just firing back at the LGBTQ community for their protest?
