DETROIT (AP) -- A Detroit pastor wants a video of a consecration ceremony pulled from the Internet.

Bishop Wayne T. Jackson says that insults left on his Facebook page have "been a main attack on homosexuals."

The video taken in August at Jackson's Impact Ministries International shows him praying while lying atop new bishops who are on the floor, clothed and covered in white clothes.

Jackson says he has been holding the ordinations since 1998. He wants to have the video removed from the popular YouTube site.

Washington, D.C.-based National Black Church Initiative president The Rev. Anthony Evans says the practice is unusual and offensive, but Jackson "has a right to develop any ceremony he chooses."

The newspaper says Jackson is married and has nine children.
