: This morning, disgraced Atlanta Mega-Church pastor took to the pulpit to address charges that he COERCED teenage boys into sex with him.
He could have come out and said AFFIRMATIVELY that he is NOT GAY . . . or that he NEVER had any sexual contact with ANY teenage boys. If he made those statements, and they were TRUE STATEMENTS, then the statements would have practically NO ADVERSE LEGAL IMPACT against him.
But he didn't say either of those things . . . which leads to the OBVIOUS inference . . . That h couldn't say that he's not gay or that he didn't have sex with boys . . . because those statements would NOT BE TRUE. And would therefore HURT HIM in the impending legal battle.
The sad shame is that there are THOUSANDS of his supporters who do not REQUIRE that he categorically DENY having sex with boys.
Anyways, this FAKE HAIRED booty bouncer took to the pulpit this morning . .. and told followers that he is NOT stepping down from the church. And he made this statement with regards to the sex abuse charges:
I am not a perfect man . . . but I’m not the man being portrayed on television.
By the counsel of my lawyers, they told me to not try this case in the media . . . It will be tried in the court of law.”
I have been accused . . . I’m under attack. I want you to know that I’m not a perfect man . . . but this thing, I’m gonna fight.
I feel like David against Goliath. But I’ve got 5 rocks, and I haven’t thrown one yet.
When we hear "I am not a perfect man" we're bracing ourselves for the other shoe to drop . . .
MTO, whether he is TRULY gay or not, he did say that the man that is portrayed on
television is not the man that he is - in an existential sense. So whether it is
true or not in actuality, the GAY man that is being rendered in the media is the
representation that he said does not align with who he TRULY is. lol, MTO, I wish
you guys did not contextually distort your stories so much; it makes you guys seem
uneducated and a little "feisty" yourselves. Oh, yeah, I am going to need you guys
to also start using a browser with the capacity to CHECK YOUR SPELLING. PLEASE, it
is NOT that difficult!
I am sorry to say this but he is gay. "I am not perfect" mean I did it but they added some false accusation. So he is going to fight these accusation. Example, "yes I sucked their penis but I didn't have intercourse with them" type accusation. Its over.
This mofo jerry curled pimp needs to step the frack down already and all of those dumb azz black people that are staying in his church deserve to be robbed by him. His wife ought to be ashamed of herself for sticking by this pedophile.
well duh , of course he is gonna deny these allegations , i dont think any person
who adamantly preached and condemned homosexuality is gonna publicy admit they are
because that would show that they are just a hypocrite
Who cares if he had sex with the boys.
They are not underage.
He would be a conniving bastard who has no biz in the pulpit. But I don't know why everyone's acting like he committed a crime. Lawyers, court cases and such.
Someone explain to me why this is a legal matter? They kids are not underage.
Their lawyers say things like ... he spent time with them, texted them, said they be committed to each other ...SO???
FOR ALL YOU FOOLS THAT SAY SO WHAT THE BOYS WERE OF AGE. I HOPE YOU SICK AZZES DON'T HAVE KIDS IF YOU DO GO FLUSH YOUR FACES.. THIS IS REALLY NOT ABOUT THE KIDS ITS ABOUT THIS TIGHT SUIT, LACEFRONT, LONGSTROKING ASS BISHOP.. HE MARCHED ABOUT HOMO'S AND TALKS ABOUT THEM ON A REGULAR BUT ITS OK? NO THIS CLOWN IS GETTING RICH OFF ALL THE CLOWNS THAT LISTEN TO HIS AZZ.. SAD SAD DAY.. MAY HE GO TO HELL AND THAT CURL CATCH OF FIRE!
Has anyone noticed NOT one prominent politician, entertainer, or civil rights activist has come FORWARD TO DEFEND HIM? That speaks volumes to me! And it took him a week to partially address the allegations. That nig is GUILTY!
OF ALL THE SEXUAL ALLEGATIONS AGAINST PRIEST MOLESTING LIL BOYS, I WONDER HOW MUCH WERE REALLY GETTING MOLESTED AND GOD KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED...THAT'S FOR SURE AND EDDIE HAS TO LIVE WITH THAT....IF HE IS LYING.....
Leviticus 20:13 "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them." - For the LORD has spoken
I am not a perfect man.
(the collection place circles one time)
My lawyer says not the defend my self in the media.
(second collection "love offering")
I have been accused but this thing I'm going to fight.
(circles the "building fund")
All I got is my balls and my word. Now go forth and I would like to see all the young men in the pastor's study after service.
May god show you the way.
MTO how you gonna get a transcript for something that has not happened yet?? His church service does not start until 11:00 EST. If the service you are referring to happened at 8, and the man said he was going to respond to everything at 11, why would you report on a service that he never said he would say anything in? Dang dude, either pay attention to the news, or get some real journalists in to help you, your reporting is really shoddy
dem gaybirds should be ashamed to come out with some sh!t like that. to tell someone i was paid for sex with the bishop eddie long. that is pimpin at its finiest. got deez queens selling their bodys for cars and money. all i can say is HOMEY DONT PLAY THAT.... what a bunch of POONTAHS!!!!
He Didn't, Say Anything, Because Any Smart Person, Whose Falsely Being Accused Of Something So Scandalous, Wouldn't Say A Word Without A Lawyer Present, Or Say Anything Without Incriminating Themselves, Oh & Btw Those Boys Are Clearly Queers, I've Seen They're Photos On Cnn, & They Weren't Blurred Out !!!!!!!
He can not speak on this allegation due to it being a pending case. I am listening and reading his quotes and his gestures. He is picking his words very carefully. I find it also sad for his wife and family who have to endure this humiliation in the public eye. There is a saying that what's done in the dark, will come to light. Either Mr. Long is in complete denial and trying to detach himself from this scandal, or he is honestly trying to fight these attacks against his character. I found it interesting that he states "I'm not a perfect man". This infers that he has made mistakes......
Those chargers just didn't drop out of the sky which means it has to have some truth to it...and think about it..they said he bought CARS for the boys...that has to leave a trail and he has to be in his name...he sent them pictures and text messages...come on..guys..he can't say he is innocent...because there is just too much evidence against him...
~It's strange that the people that have the Most Followers have the Most Sickest Minds...so kinda like to blind leading the blind.
But the question is: what kinds of ‘mistakes’ are they? Some public figures are so arrogant that they will deny their wrongdoings and indiscretions until the very end. Others will openly admit it and profusely ask for the world’s forgiveness. So, I wonder: taking the stance that Eddie Long IS guilty of these accusations, would it be better if he would openly admit his wrongdoings and ask for forgiveness? If he is guilty (hypothetically speaking), I think that continuously denying it is going to hurt his case even further. Guess we will all have to wait and see how this plays out.
The Eddie long scandal may be discussed on our radio show this evening at 7pm eastern. Here's more info on the additional topics:
Time to Rock & Roll folks! Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they the dissect the following issues currently encircling the media universe: was the woman (Velma Hart) that confronted Pres. Obama during last
week's townhall a plant?; our take on the many angles of the immigration
debate and lastly, Jets' wide receiver Braylon Edwards DUI-is it
indicative of a larger issue with athletes of color? Stop
When you are telling the TRUTH you don't have to be careful with your words.
I agree with MTO it wouldn't hurt him to say he didn't have sex with any of those
boys if it was true. He can't say that because then he'd be lying. His slick ass
didn't say nothing today that he couldn't have said earlier this week in the
interview he canceled.
Wow!! This monster has absolutely no shame in his game. Now either he has a following of the same kinds of sexual deviants in his parish as he or the majority of them are still in "SHOCK" and are patiently waiting for the laws of the land to prevail. Whatever the case if he is unwilling to step down from the church then he should be FORCED OUT by his Jheri Curl toupe.

u all got 2 b tha dumbest ppl. i seen them kids on cnn last nite talkin bout he not a molester. u can tell they were paid 2 talk.
OMG!! That man is 57 yrs old tryna look like he's 27 yrs old, wearing muscle shirts, takin bathroom cell phone pics showin off his muscles, stuntin in the Bentley, wearin wigs to appear younger, etc. This scandal should be NO SUPRISE. It is known that "the ones who speak the loudest about the dirt is DOING THE DIRT". Pastors and Preachers are suppose to strive to be more Christ like... he needs to ask himself "What would Jesus do" cuz I'm sure Jesus wouldn't be wearing tight ass spandex shirts & pants havin young boys lustin after him, smh
And even now, they jump shouting in support of him..Conartistry @its finest..Smh...A wolf in sheep's clothing! Guarantee this is only tip of the iceberg. Let us not 4get the Devil knew the bible word for word...marinate on that
I always thought preachers from those sunday worship churchers wearing these expensive suits, rings, chains, and jery curls were up to no damn good. The men look like he is sucking these pll dry and they are also brainwashed by him. This men is the devils bystander in that church
and just because the consenting age is 15 in Ga, we all know many people are not adult and making adult
desicions just because of age...i still considered myself a child at 18...these boys are still children, 17 is a
child last time i checked...f*#k all that consenting age s*$t yall talking about..
<---Missed church this morning. Getting ready for my Texans to trash them Cowboys. The sad thing is that they have members in the church that know this aint right but are still going to show up next sunday. They know in their hearts that sumthin is wrong, but they wont speak out. Im really thinking that homosexuals rule the world.... HBO had a riveting documentary on Gays in Govt...Very explosive!
Did yall see his dumb azz congregation cheering for him like they were at a goddamn ballgame? The church is a sanctuary. He didn't even do a regular Sunday service. THose people aren't there for God, they are there for Eddie Long. F*ckin suckas. Long didnt deny the charges, and then he snatched up his wife and dragged her azz out of there. She should be EMBARRASSED to be seen witht that clown.
I dont care what anyone says. Yes, the boys might have been legal, but it doesn't give a 50 something year old MARRIED man, who preaches against gays, the right to manipulate, control and maintain teenage boys on the parishoners' tithe money. His "followers" are paying for his legal defense and trips to seduce young men.
If I ever catch a grown ass married man sending my teenage child (male or female) pictures of himself in biker shorts in the bathroom, I'm f*ckin' him up. That's my word.
I was never the type to really listen to some of these pastors/bishops cuz to me they jus like politics it got the good ones and bad but there alot more bad than good and kiddz are the main target in everythin in life cuz they are eazier to fu*k with so to me there are no excuse to be a man of the lord and u a batty boy so all points are taken away from eddie in my book unless he prove himself other wise which will be very hard cuz y he a (black man)
Bloggers Im aware that it's Sunday but please reframe yourselves from utilizing scriptures to justify this man actions he's been scamming his parishioners for years, what pastor you know drives a bentley to church? I'm waiting no worries none this is certainly no an innocent man who's been allegedly accused of homosexual acts with young boys but a man who on numerous occasions has proclaimed to be extremely homophobic but writes books that puts him into question.
It's also sad that the victims of this man's manipulation are being called every name in the book. They may not have even really been exposed to pu55y when Eddie Long started puttin' the moves on them. They claim that he discouraged them from relationships with girls, using Bible quotes to substantiate his claims.
Maybe when they did get some good poon, they realized something wasn't right and started pulling away from him. Sh*t, i'm a grown muthaf*cka and I'm just realizing some sh*t in MY past wasn't right.
What's sad is the congregation that's full of black women and gays... men don't go to churches because we know when another man is pimping or running game cause we do it too. Real men find spirituality, which has nothing to do with a bible and white jesus. But the black women in churches will follow a goat wearing heels to a moose orgy as long as he adds jesus in the introduction.
Read the Bible at home. I feel no minister should drive a better car than mine,should have a house better then mine. I pray keep my money in my pocket. If these so called men of God can give me a reciept from God that the all mighty the Jack leg's will not get a dime from me! !!
But of course, he still has his Zombie followers.
But they will find out the hard way.
They will be like the folks described here:
MANY ( MANY ) will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy
name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Matthew 7: 22&23

you can watch the live feed from the church here. Mr. Jim Jones AKA Ted
Haggard..BKA Eddie Long. Anybody can get a book and "preach". quit acting as if
this man is a "god". This has nothing to do with GOD. Stop saying it. Nothing to
do with the "devil". Stop making excuses. he a fraud...and u got got...its
ok..happens to a lot of folks. Just dont lay your life down for a MAN...
AND THIS HAS NOOOTTTHHINNGGG TO DO WITH "GAY". I THINK GAY PEOPLE HAVE ENOUGH TO
DEAL WITH IN THIS WORLD TO THEN HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS FRAUD BEING THROWN IN THE
GROUP. HE IS A STR8 MAN..SLEEPING WITH MEN....LETS BE REAL PEOPLE.
DONT JUST THROW OUT BIBLE QUOTES U HEARD FROM CHURCH. IF UR GOING TO DO IT DO IT
RIGHT AND STOP HALF ASSING. THATS WHY PEOPLE DONT KNOW WHAT THE BOOK THEY DEFEND

Thank you. If he indeed had sex with these yung men he isn't necessarily gay. Some people will sex with anyone available, male or female.
Um...funny how the second part of his comment is mysteriously missing from this post...he CLEARLY states that he may not be a perfect man..."but I am not THAT man." leave it to MTO to twist things the wrong way...not condemning nor condoning his alledged actions...but as the public we should demand ALL of the facts...so please report them MTO
THAT MAN AINT GOT TO ADMIT OR TRY TO JUSTIFY ISH. EVERYBODY INVOLVED KNOWS WHAT IT WAS. THEM BOYS JUST USING THEY AGE NOW LIKE HE MANIPULATED THEM BUT THEY KNEW WHAT WAS UP AND IF THE MONEY TRAIN WAS STILL ON THE TRACK THEY WOULD STILL BE GIVING UP THE BOOTY AND ALL WOULD BE WELL.
1. To All the MiniGods who Created Bishop Long & Know Him personally enough to judge him! SMH!
2. I couldn't find the verse in the Bible where I'm Not Perfect = Gay!
3. With all the Blasphemy, Cursing, and Name Calling, it's obvious you don't rep Christ in your comments!
4. FYI, Bishop Long was making a 6 figure income at Ford before his Pastoral
Calling! PS, He's an Author & Entrepreneur! Not Even on Church Salary!
5. I thought Jesus gave us freewill to attend where we choose!
6. Drug Dealers & Rappers can have nice things(cars), but Pastors Can't?!
7. He who is Without Sin, Cast a Stone!

SO true! I need you in my life. LOL
If he slept with these boys it us wrong as a pastor, married man, Christian an human being. It doesn't matter why or how long it too the boys to come forth. Many people don't deal with abuse until they are well into adulthood. And please, how many heterosexuals would dance aroung gay alligations...
He is GAY. He went against gay people with extreme hate and here he was,one of them the entire time. I hope the entire ATL gay commmunity is laughing their asses off at him.
There is a double standard here. If it was girls he was doing like this,y;all would be hollering. NO matter what the gender or sexuality,when a fucking adult approaches a KID,it is WRONG.
To all you motherfuckers talking about they were 16,so what;you are obviously down with child molestation. He started banging em at 16 so he had to prep them BEFORE they became legal. That's called child grooming.
And a lot of people do this....they remember to quote scripture when someone is gay, but forget scripture
when they are having sex outside of marriage ( FORNICATION )and producing bastard children.
The Truth is that all fornicators, cheaters, liars, and homosexuals are headed to the same place, regardless
of which one the Bible classifies as an Abomination, they are all sin that will be punished in the same
Parents are too trusting,especially with a man who offered himself up as a spiritual advisior and had a position in the community. Fuck that. It's up to US to be viligant because that's our job as parents. Eddie Long took advantage of his position to basically form a damn harem. And he started grooming them when they were 14 or thereabouts. Bastard.
*Antoine Dodson voice*
Hide your tithes,hide your offerings,hide your sons,cuz the preacher is touching everyone!
He is no different than any other man preacher who has been busted. They all say the same thing...."please believe in me, I am not perfect, we all make mistakes, I have sinned against you my Lord, etc, etc, etc." This nasty bastard is no different than Swaggart, Haggard, Baker, etc.....every single one of them committed acts of immorality/fornication with members of their congregations, people who trusted them. Trying to hide behind a bible and twisting it's words in order to justify their conduct.
This fool is as guilty as that hair on his head is fake! He needs to be a real man for a change and admit to what he did. I would not be surprised if this mess was settled out of court, while his brain washed followers think this man did nothing wrong. Talk about stupid. The scriptures made it clear there would be men claiming to represent Christ and their works prove otherwise.
It sickens me to see these Preachers have so many member... especially women.... to praise them and give them all their money... while they struggle to make ends meet each month on their own bills..... I THING YOU SHOULD ALWAYS KEEP A THIRD EYE OPEN...especially in the church cause this mess is happening more than we know.... IT IS REAL... from the pulpit, choir direct, choir members, ushers, deacons, and not to mention the members of the church...STOP PLAYING WITH GOD.........
Let the Games Begin!
Now, this is the part where he gets his lawyers to get the VICTIMS lawyers to settle out of court for an agreed sum of money. And, of course this settlement will come with a matching set of Non-Disclosure Agreements that the VICTIMS will never speak about the said allegations ever again as per the contract.
Win-Win for everyone.
..with the exception of all those innocent and hapless followers of his who actually believe him to be innocent.
As an Atlanta resident with very keen eyes and an astute memory, I happen to KNOW that, he is not.
New Birth members today is your day to have heard proclaims his innocent but gave you a subliminalized sermon of how he not perfect and can be forgiven you've been bamboozeld and hoodwinked for long enough this man utilized his pastoral duties to vitimize these young men with lavish gifts and trips around the world with church funds .
God's word is at everyone's fingertips. We have the intelligence, the reading, comprehension skills, and the ability to go into prayer for translation and understanding. Then the WILL to apply it to our lifestyles. Preachers are mere messengers. They are not God and they are not better or higher than us. Money nor status makes a person higher. We are all side by side equal beings. Only ONE sits high and looks low, and that's God. And right now we all look a hot mess. We have to get to know Him for ourselves. So, God should be our focus, not man. We are all too imperfect to be above anybody!
Unless you're an expert on body language, keep it shut.
Secondly, y'all need to quit condemning him, wait until all the facts are IN and then make your stance,
but DON'T MAKE HIM OUT TO BE GUILTY before CONCRETE evidence is known and cleared.
This is what happened to MJ and this is what usually happens to most Blacks, most of you on here put
preachers on pedestals and UNREALISTIC ones and when they mistakes all hell brakes loose.
WAIT until ALL THE EVIDENCE IS IN FIRST.
MTO, this pretty much sums it up. "I am not a perfect man . . . but I’m not the man being portrayed on
AND no I don't go to his church
1. How can you justify a pastor driving a Bentley when people are starving?
2. The hypocrisy doesn't bother you just a little bit?
3. You DO realize he is only MAN and with FAULT? HE admits as much.
4. Your bible isn't necessarily every1 else's truth
5. The pastor is a crook just like dealers & most rappers so I guess a nice car is appropos
6. Your pastor(or God)judged homosexuals for YEARS so how dare you expect mercy? And he is the biggest FAG & pervert of them all. An eye for an eye, another one of your beloved verses
7. Please rethink that CULT that you belong
...as a heterosexual, non-adultoring, non-perverse Christian, I would immediately denounce anyone who accused me of being anything opposite. But he didn't. Pleading the 5th is not an option. How can saying ur are not gay or didn't engage in sexual acts with minors have an ADVERSE effect on u in court!....
That's telling it like it is.
Also we know you are not perfect Eddie, YOU GOT CAUGHT. Please remove yourself from the pulpit, apologize to the boys, apologize to your family and for God's sake take off that ridiculous hairpiece. His stylist really messed up with that one. This man is such a fraud that is not funny. He can't flatly deny anything b/c he know it is true. I will start a support group for the four boys and others who come forth. David vs. Goliath? You mean kids vs. megapimp. I hope all the boys he cruised in downtown Atlanta come forth too.
1. Some of us DO know Eddie Long. Probably longer than you. And, they KNOW he did this.
2. His use of 'Im not perfect.' was NOT appropiate for this circumstance. Jesus said let your answers be YAY or NAY. He said neither.
3. Not everybody is doing this.
4. No. He actually went broke just before New Birth. Read the book. Get to know YOUR pastor.
5. True. But, plant your seed in fertile ground.
6. Pastors are held to a higher standard than your local drug dealer. Rappers dont have a code of morality.
7. Because ALL have sinned, this levels the playing field. Think about this.
After he showed up with the velcro wig today I would have quit his church. He couldn't even stand convicted and say that he was not gay or those things were not true and people STILL are members? Do you need to see his banana up the tailpipe to be sure? He's basically saying he isn't guilty of coercion, they screwed him willingly. GAY nonetheless. And its nothing wrong with being gay, a judgemental hypocritical snake oil salesman preying on people's faith is another story. Your tithes pay for his blowjobs, bad weaves, muscle shirts, bathroom pics and anal lube. Deal with it.
1. Sending suspect azz pics of yourself posing in a skintight onesie to OTHER men.
2. THREE men,willing to admit to the entire homophobic black community,that they slobbed on Bishop's schlong. We are the DL capital of the South. For them to even ALLEGE this is proof.
3.Michael Jackson was guilty as hell. Just like R.Kelly pee'd on that girl,Ray LEwis murdered those guys in Buckhead, TI is a snitch,and OJ killed Nicole. We, as a community,have got to stop refusing to believe when EVIDENCE is right in our damn face.
What bothers me most is In a CNN interview sone young members of his church said they will stand behind him because of what he did to help their family, school etc. Which is fine, but not one ofvthem said they stood behind him bc he was a man of God and none gave testimony of what a man he is in Christ. Only how he helps people financially.
That's what people like Eddie Long do. They do enough good just to cover up their mess. I am very thankful that I have two loving parents who I owe everything I have to, but I would be foolish to defend them if they have harmed others. And that's what these people are...foolish. However, the young ones will realize what is really going on when they get older.
2 dam funny, leave him alone. the age consent in ga is 15... the young boys were 17 and up.. so what...
You probably the type of mother/father that would let this type of man mentor your son(s), and you
reap the benefits.
He didnt want to get into the same trap Bill Clinton got into when he denied "he
had sex with that Women" Monica Lewinsky LOL Then Monica had the Blue Dress...
WHich means Eddie Long doesn't know what kinda proof those boys have yet. SO he
can't flat out deny it yet.. Just make unclear comments.
psychmaj justifies your argument. Have you read the actual court transcripts? There is detailed information and those kids story was consistent. He paid his way out the first time. Who pays money if they are innocent? The second time there was simply not enough evidence. Before you testify for anyone you should first understand that they are human and not exempt from flaw. He was a great singer but he had some things going on.
Just like Luther Vandross, Tyler Perry & Alicia Keys are gay. Why is it so hard for the black community to admit? Denial is killing us.
BlkShepard wrote: "I am not a perfect man.." Ok. I believe that statement. Well
how come he didnt make the same statement when he marched against the gays? How
come he didnt say " gays are not perfect people and I will pray for them to
change their ways? When some one says I am not perfect they already are
indirectly admitting they Did something very wrong. He wants folks to forgive
him yet he had no forgivness in his heart for gays who are not perfect.So we
forgive him because he is not perfect but the gays who also are not perfect we
condem, wow. GOD PLEASE HELP MY PEOPLE.
And let the church say Amen!!!!!
WOW! We can't pass judgment on people when we TRULY do not know all 3 sides of a story! Furthermore, who are we to judge?!? "Touch not my anointed, and do my prophet no harm" Be cautious and mindful when you say and put your mouth on the men and women of GOD!!
If this man can persuade grown folks to give up their whole paycheck to pay for his extravagance, y is it so hard for folks to belive he persuaded teenagers to have sex with him. What's the line most gay people use...it's just a mouth, what does it matter whose it is...oh it's not sex without penitration, etc.
Do you know how ridiculous you sound quoting that scripture? Do you even know what it means? First of all 'the Lord's anointed', is a reference to the kings of the nation of Israel (1Sam. 12:3,5; 24:6,10; 26:9,11, 16,23; 2 Sam. 1:14,16; 19:21; Psalm 20:6; Lam. 4:20). The mention of prophets, is a reference to the patriarchs (Psalm 105:8-15; 1Chron. 16:15-22). It is used exclusively in the Old Testament.
So don't get on here taking scripture out of context trying to defend this creep.
What is he suppose to say? This is still an open and pending legal therefore its best to leave things unsaid until court. Many people went to New Birth today expecting the wrong thing. You're supposed to go to church to hear the word of god not to hear a confession from a man.
If this is true I blame those lazy A$$ parents.
Why were charges not filed the next day.
Two years and several babies later, give me a break.
This why I don't mentor to poor kids.
Stop pawning your kids off on folks.
Eddie Long is running a cult because you all know that if it weren't true he would gave said that..instead he says I'm not perfect..go figure...they ran him out of DC back n the 80's with the same pedophilia behavior..
HMMM touched a nerve did I ? LMAO When you say blacks you mean all blacks, am I
right? So in that same way black people can say we all gotta do better...GET IT OR
ARE YOU TOO DAMN DUMB TO COMPREHEND? NOW U R DISMISSED B I T C H!!!
This story here; is kind of sensitive, in fact; "It's too! Sensitive, for me to respond or judge, because, he is a MAN OF THE CLOTH! I'm going to keep my comment clean & safe!" I feel like this: rather, he did it, or not?!.. The truth will surface until the light. And, we should all just be quiet, LET GO & LET GOD, TAKE CARE OF HIS OWN!!!
A good intention but fixed and resolute- bent on high and holy ends, we shall find means to them on every side and at every moment; and even obstacles and opposition will but make us "like the fabled specter-ships, "which sail the fastest in the very teeth of the wind.

In order to see any validity in this matters I could accept changes filed then next day...... but wait .....buy me some nikes, but me some $200.00 Sean John Jeans....buy me some...... just buy me everything.

MY PHUCKIN TIME! MY BAD GOTTA LEARN 2 IGNORE ALL DA IGNORANT AZZHOLES ON HERE
@stnmtndude you said unless they can prove he slept with them before the legal

THING ALL OF THEM SAID LOL...SERIOUSLY THEIR ALL LEGAL...
ppl keep trying to make it seem like he bought them ALL CARS, ETC...it was 1
person, the other 2 claimed that at ages 19 and 20 he "coerced" them to have sex
w/them...im sorry at 19 and 20 you now wth your doing...and second, these PHOTOS
that leaked are from the same cell phone the FIRST BOY that got caught STEALING
THE PHONE leaked from..sounds like he sent them to someone, or dowloaded it to
it wasnt until he got caught, prosecuted, etc that he leaked the photos and
brought the case up later...it was him, and FLAGG, one of the other guys...2 out
of the 4, stole $1,300 worth of stuff from LONG... ===>>>>
im not saying LONG is innocent, but something just isnt adding up...
In order to see any validity in this matters I could accept charges being filed the next day..... but wait .....buy me some nikes, but me some $200.00 Sean John Jeans....buy me some..... just buy me everything.
Well I hope these accusations turn out to be true because I've had a crush on Bishop Eddie Long for yrs and that's why I'm always talking down on the south because the truth is I belong in Atlanta with my gay ass! They should rename Atlanta Sodomville!!!
"Well I hope these accusations turn out to be true because I've had a crush on Bishop Eddie Long for yrs and that's why I'm always talking down on the south because the truth is I belong in Atlanta with my gay ass! They should rename Atlanta Sodomville!!!"
At least you are honest. It's true. The gays in Atlanta have known it for awhile.
@facingreality -- great point.
I don't think people really comprehend the gravity of this situation. It is about hyprocrisy, secrets , and lies, especially in the black church.
Homosexuality is not the issue. If Bishop Long is gay then he should be gay. However, standing in the pulpit and preaching against homosexuality, preaching against gay marriage, and "counseling" folks to renounce their homosexuality is VERY wrong especially if you are engaged in homosexual behavior.
In terms of the fact that he may have been sleeping with minors -- if the boys were over the age of 16/17 doesn't make him technically a pedophile because the young men are over the age of 13 but it does indicate an abuse of power which may be criminal. The fact that he MAY have been using his status, power, and wealth (church wealth I might add) to manipulate and seduce these young man is a problem.
Hopefully, this situation will shed some light on these mega prosperity churches
Open up your books and become transparent.
Black folks need to get a grip on this homosexuality issue. We claim we don't believe in or accept homosexuality but we got a whole log of man on man love going o.
Why is that young boys are being sexually molested by men of the cloth, coaches, teachers, momma's boyfriends, friends, uncles, grandfathers, and others.
Sexual abuse of black men from the pews to the jail cells.
For all of you people who want to absolve Bishop Long because his accusers were of the age of consent may you be kindly reminded that this is about numberous church sermoms of his regarding how distasteful and sinful it is to be a homosexual.
This is about the fact that he is a hypocrit and that he misused his fidicuary powers! Open your eyes and stop allowing people to abuse children under the guise of God!
This man has "allegedly" enticed boys into sexual encounters on numerous occasions WHILE BEING MARRIED. No, the issue is not JUST about him BEING GAY. He has committed adultery, he has led his 'flock' astray as well as deceived them, his wife, family & friends. Possibly used the funds of his 'flock', supporters, etc to fund these "alleged" sex-capades.....I guarantee ya, there's going to be many 'followers' still standing right by his side believing he's NOT guilty...
Yeah only GOD should judge, but God also tells us not to be FOOLS!
His azz needs to step the f*ck down !
Sing me a song, you’re a singer
do me a wrong, you’re a bringer of evil
The Devil is never a maker
the less that you give, you’re a taker
So it’s on and on and on, it’s Heaven and Hell, oh well
The lover of life’s not a sinner
The ending is just a beginner
The closer you get to the meaning
the sooner you’ll know that you’re dreaming
So it’s on and on and on, oh it’s on and on and on
It goes on and on and on, Heaven and Hell
I can tell, fool, fool!
Well if it seems to be real, it’s illusion
for every moment of truth, there’s confusion in life
Love can be seen as the answer, but nobody bleeds for the dancer
and it’s on and on, on and on and on….
They say that life’s a carousel
Spinning fast, you’ve got to ride it well
The world is full of Kings and Queens
who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
It’s Heaven and Hell, oh well
And they’ll tell you black is really white
The moon is just the sun at night
And when you walk in golden halls
you get to keep the gold that falls
It’s Heaven and Hell, oh no!
You’ve got to bleed for the dancer!
Look for the answer!
Fool, fool, fool!

Thank you. Innocent men don't play about an accusation of child molestation. They will fight it to the bitter end,not cop to a civil suit.When people say the same thing about you over and over,there is an element of truth somewhere. MJ was guilty as sin.
Eddie Long is gay,gay,and GAY. All these New Birth members coming on here hollering are in denial. These boys aren't lying. He sought out the in trouble boys,that's why he started that program and groomed them. Child molestors do the same thing with lonely and neglected kids. They know these kids will be easier to attack.
He probably needs time to get his multi-millions in to bank accounts in the Bahamas before he comes clean. He's not the only one, there are many religious leaders living in sin, in secret. It's shameful that they have no shame, and the most obvious ones are the one who speakout strongly about what they really do themselves.
To All The Slow & Dumb folks on here still quoting (don't judge the man hes
innocent until proven guilty) CHILD PLEASE!!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH If Eddie Long knew
that he was innocent BUMP the Lawyer BUMP whoever told HIM not to speak of de
allegation I would have SPOKEN IF I KNEW I WAS INNOCENT What do u have to lose if
u n u are Lets be real if he knew that theres no evidence & hes innocent st8 up he
would hav said It But yet all he say is that he will fight Fight What Paying Em
off, & people cheerin him like Eddie wil help em when they in needs Child Plz
Folks R bein BRAINWASH THATS WAT DE GET!
I don't get how these people are excusing what he did because the boys"should have known better"
WTF? Victims come from all sexualities and genders. I bet some of you had a funny uncle or a relative who was swift with his hands but you never told anybody. Shouldn;t you have known better than to let an adult touch you? No,you didn;t because they were an ADULT and you were a child. 16,17, are not MENTALLY adults. Because they are boys,it shouldn't have happened? He used his power,position,money and the respect the boys felt towards him to fuck them.
The first point against him this morning is that he didn't come out and say "I didn't do it, I'm innocent and that's all my lawyers would let me say." Those words would not have caused ANY legal trouble. The point most people are missing is that there are FEDERAL laws, not GA against interstate trafficking of anyone under the age of 18 for sex. He had sex with boys who were 17 at the time in other states and in Africa, he will do time behind this. They are men now, but were boys when the initial sex at 17 began so he is guilty whether he gave them gifts or not is not relevant in the law.
synopsisvick---Please change that avi! That sh*it is beyond tacky and ridiculous!
Funny how most of these nasty white pedophiles don't get this sort of coverage. This is like the 4th post in a span of one week!
Exactly. He didn't deny anything. ANY innocent man wouldn't give a damn,he'd proclaim his innocence. Instead he says"I'm not perfect".
SMDH. He better cop now before these boys produce even more damning evidence. That lawyer they got is a shark and she probably has all kinds of dirt.
well, does anyone notice how the reports keep saying at first ROBINSON the
original persecutor said he never new there were others who were supposedly having
these sexual relations with eddie long...but towards the end of his report, he
says "oh yeah, we were his spiritual sons, its a group of us" um, which on is it?
did you NOT KNOW, or was it a GROUP OF YOU???
He's too confident he can win this. He's got connection with people in high places. That might be his lead to winning. They might need to protect their reputation too of having contact with those boys.
That boy who broke into the church only stole jewelry and an ipad. Seems like things that could be meaningful. They want to use that against him but what about the others? One even in a totally different state. Now 30 more?
i can hear his atty now,sayingthe victims were on a more troubled level than the other 'sons' and needed 'hands on' attention, they misunderstood. He didnt say yea or nay, so hes luke warm. His congregation (some) stood up w/applause when he said he would fight it, does he have a choice? Discovery is the fight, settlement is the easy part if it comes down to it.
Yes, Don Lemon DID say yesterday he too had been abused. So why was he acting relieved and happy when the girl said she believed the Bishop today, that was on with the other kids yesterday? And please note, none of the BOYS who were with her showed up today, no doubt, they don't want to be laughed out of the US for defending Eddie Long another day.
Hey he isn't gay, he bi. Big difference y'all. I'm bi and I get down evenly and a lot of brothas do they just don't say it. We all over. Where my baby SexyTranny? Ain"t nothing wong with man on man love as long as you real wit yours. A lot of niccas is not real.
You dumb stupid bloody, lupus, vaginitis, douche bag.
Dumbs A$$ get your F_ucking straight, New Birth is Lithonia not Atlanta.
I know what you man like
You man is good as mine if you'll ever visit Hotlanta.
I want your man to slap the H_Ell out of you because my sex is better.
Listen...I'm positive that God, Allah or whomever, did NOT intend for us to practice "blind faith". Why do humans believe that you need a "leader"...be it political, religious or otherwise? When you are capable of independent thought and self love, then there is no reason whatsoever to believe that the only way to "heaven" or salvation is thru your connection to a mere mortal who may or may not believe, that he or she was hand picked personally by the "good lord". No one deserves to be mistreated or abused, but come on fellas....what did you expect?
Did you see all the bafoons in that church standing and cheering like he is god almighty while at the same time this wolf in sheep clothing is raping their sons?? We as blacks are too forgiving at times, we should of been there with picket signs asking him to step down. He needs to work on his mind, he is a sick man and needs to ask god for forgiveness. His arrogance on that stage made me sick to my stomach!! All of a sudden he's a victim.
@ Stupid mj37
I beg to differ, You my dear are the only bafoon. I know several of the New Birth members who are Black Professional like Doctors, Lawyers & Judges. They are not section 8 like you sitting on a bike with no class just F_unky A$$
Told u he was 2 selfish 2 step down. He is gay as lil Richard. They r not going 2 court. The church will buy them off. No way the sexual details will ever become public. He who claimed 2 b led by God is now led by lawyers. SMDH! Hypocrit!! No homo from the pulpit & licking & sticking azz in the pastor study. At Newbirth, drop his azz b4 he makes u lose everything.
WHO CARES ABOUT ATLANTA AND THEY GAY CHURCHES.
DIDN'T THE BOY HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD & STOLE
THINGS OUT THE CHURCH OUT OF ANGER. THEM CHURCHES
NEED TO STAY AWAY FROM THE REST OF AMERICA, THE FEMALES
AND DUDES STILL IMMIGRATING TO ALTANTA,LIKE THEY FOUND
THEY TRUE CALLING. I'M STAYING RIGHT WHERE I BELONG.
I thought Atlanta was full of bright, established black folks. Not from what I seen today. A bunch of brainless monkeys cheering for a homosexual monkey wearing a bad wig. The wife knows..it's written all over her face.
@ hardcandy & muffinhead
"Judge not, that ye be not judged!" God will have
mercy on the merciful!" Don't kill the messenger!
Obviously his wealth comes from within (GodGiven) being that even after hitting
rock bottom, *GOD GAVE* him back everything the Devil thought he stole (PS
Authorship and Entrepreneurship are gifts from above)! Not the first time, won't
be the last, this is only a test!
Speaking of that, where are your 25,000 members, oh don't have any? I guess you
didn't have enough character for God to trust you with that kind of favor!
Enough Said!! Well when you are called from the womb, God has the Final Say!
When he began saying to his congregation "You may have a seat in the presence of the Lord I am," they all should have found another church home. He said that in the speech today...and they all sat their azzes down. I serve but one God, and His name ain't Eddie Long.
This entire situation reminds me greatly of two figures in history:
Father Divine (Google me)
Jim Jones(Google again)
It's the same ego-driven personality that is eventually consumed by the powerful spirits of Lust, Greed, and Gluttony.
Many of you guys on here may be too young to remember, but Eddie Long had this same problem in Washington, DC many years ago.
We are charged to forgive him. Whatever the outcome. But, it is imperative that he repents.
His actions have a direct impact on literally thousands of souls. If he doesnt come clean soon...he could lose everything.
This whole judging thing is becoming more and more trite.
Dont you realise when things like this happen to a PASTOR, that it IS God at work!
He is purifying the Body of Christ by bringing INTEGRITY to this man of God in this situation.
In all of our getting, we must learn to get an understanding.
The bible says that the FIRST will be last, and the LAST will be first. Technically, Fred, you, and me will get in before the Eddie Long's of the world in these last days. We are now living in the time where, 'The very elect will be deceived.'
As for 'character', I think the Pastor standing there in his one-peice cat suit, erm.....pretty much speaks volumes in itself. I dont even own that in my wardrobe.
And, the thought of sending a pic of me in that outfit to a 17 YEAR OLD BOY is unconscionable. Im about 20 years younger than Pastor Long.
No Judgement. Just Real Talk.
...Whether guilty or innocent, these allegations will never see the lights of any courtrooms. Monies will exchange hands, and slowly but surly the scandal will fade from public fascinations, and then it's on to the next scandal.
The American attention span is short and fleeting. As a result, the brainwashed will continue to lavish riches upon idols, because that's what the brainwashed do best, and that is to give what they can not afford to give, to those that already have way too much.....Artofwar
Just learned that a Bishop Eddie Long sextape has been released. It's called "Sunday Semen" oops I meant "Sunday Sermon"

You start lying and chasing after booty holes like Pastor Eddie Long Lies. Stop
the maddness and leave the booty alone Eddie.. God don't like no hypocrites
Me and my mom stop going to the church but my aunt bought me one of the church shirts some one broke into the church some months back and stole some stuff from him he didnt press charges or anything he said im going to pray for them......
There isn't a lawyer or person alive that could stop me from shouting I'M INNOCENT, I DON'T SLEEP WITH KIDS, I AM NOT GAY. By not saying that he pretty much admitted it is all true. Ugly greasy proud peacock.
I think people need to not be so quick to rush to judgement. Michael Jackson proclaimed his innocence and was found NOT GUILTY and people to this day call him a pedophile, but such is the way of the world
The fact that he didn't say "I'm innocent of all these allegations" has already
shown me the answer.
This man is a hypocrite. BEWARE THE FALSE PROPHETS.
And were these kids or adults he supposedly slept with? Because there's a big
For once... I agree with MTO. Mark this day. It's a rarity.
I live in Atlanta and I have plenty of friends who attend New Birth. My cousins just played his little league football team at the GA Dome after the Falcons game. I am now wondering if he had his hands on some of these children! SMH!! I am just shocked at how people are still feeling that this is not true. I have a friend that is calling everyone haters and saying that she will defend him to the end.Frank Ski from V103 is a close friend of E.Long and uses him as the radio station's spritual advisor. He spoke about how much he loved him and would be there for him! This is crazy! I do believe that where there is smoke there is fire! These young men could not have made up some of these details. And what about the name Dick Tracy that was proven to be used in hotels and traced back to his home address, which he carelessly listed when paying for the hotels!!! This is proven people. Why would the paster use a fake name such as "Dick Tracy" and not his real name if he was not up to no good???? People have too much faith in man and not GOD!! He is not GOD!! and no one is saying that he has been proven gulity,but when he was taking these young boys on expensive trips, the rest of the poor members where at home struggling. Why is that??? Because he is a hypocrite!!! I think he is going to try to pay them off, but I am hoping that the truth will still prevail. And yes, I agree with Media Takeout "this time" and some of the other posters, that fake speech he made today has guilty written all over it!! I just do not understand why his wife has been there like an idiot and pretending that she doesn't know. I am sure she knew all along. I think he got sloppy with covering himself because he thought he was larger than life and because he had gotten away with this for sooo long. And last thought, the 4th victim, did not even live or attend New Birth in Atlanta, so why would he now come forward, because he not only manipulates the Atlanta boys, he does it at all his churches. I hope he gets what he deserves!!
I was on the fence about the allegations up until i saw those"stud pics" he sent. With his smeadium red shirt & short set leotard 2 show off his goods. 1st off a Bishop shouldnt be sending pics like that 2 anyone. Secondly i dont give a fukk what the legal age in georgia is, anyone under 18 is a minor. Also they need 2 find the exact these men last recieved a gift from him 2 determine if blackmail was involved. & I dont see any of the victims giving back the lavish gifts that were given. I have no problem with homosexuality, I do however have deep issues with pedophiles & adulterers!
Thats a damn shame i believe he did do that gay azz shyt....i knew this dude want right..hell half of em aint right any way...he allways wearin those small azz t shirts..lol...catholics aint the only ones molestin boyz....smdh....
...the world is indeed corrupt and we have twisted any truth that has ever existed. We are all guilty of this. It blows me away to see all of this hate and racism on this thread...nigger this, white Jesus that, talking down to others because we feel you've got some piece of truth over others. This hurts me to the core. We are so quick to judge but fail to realize that we are all capable of committing every sin just like anyone else. Why are we so quick to judge and speak with such hate? I'm praying for every last one of us. We are a sick race in need of real Love.
@ Sister Patterson
I am not on section 8, nor do I own a bike! But I am smart enough to know that a man of the cloth is capable of sinning, I mean you do understand that he is human and not god right?? Because a bafoon cannot decipher the difference. The only victims are the young boys that he abused, there is no need for trial, he may as well pay them off for the silence, because whether you like it or not your pastor is a gay man living a double life.
He has referenced his attorney’s more times that I can remember- Hardly indicative of a man of God. You would think he was part of the mafia with so many references. Hardly leaning on God for his defense. David and Goliath reference is a joke- the young males are more like David than he. He is the multimillionaire with the 25k member church and the Sheriff of Dekalb county. What resources do these young men have? nothing?
Ironic that he talks of casting stones isn’t it? His references to the scriptures are even far off base.
You may like your church for all of the resources it has- Thats fine, You might want to start looking for a new leader. There’s other fine leaders out there that can lead that fine church.
something else just dawned on me, since when are there BISHOPS that are MISSIONARY BAPTIST? Usually they are non-denominational or apolostic, even Catholic but missionary baptist arent ordained bishop. Who ordained him bishop, whoever did they should have asked him to step aside til this blows over. What theology or doctrine governs his bishopry (i think thats a word)
@lexus eeeeew u r soooo right! He has turned himself n2 the victim and those idiots in his church fell for it. That is a modern day CULT!! He has brainwashed those people! LOL at just reading someone yelled out at the 2nd sermon for him to tell the truth.
Ummmm....he did say he wasn't gay....He said, "I'm gonna fight these allegations." He then said, "I'm not perfect, but I am not these things that the media portrayed...." What more do you need people? He's telling you the "politically correct way" to say I'm not gay. I don't know if he did it or not, I'm just responding to the article....He ain't my pastor.
@therealist I get what you're saying but why beat around the bush? He didn't have to say anything politically incorrect but he could've came out and said I did not have relations with those men ala bill clinton/monica lewinsky. He could have said a hell of a lot more than he did.
There is nothing in the Bible that supports 'politically correct' answers, only yes or no. For a man to lead a crusade against homos he now has to resort to a PC (worldly) way of saying im not gay? He has no choice but to fight, he said he has 5 stones and he hasnt thrown one yet, well ppl that live in glass houses shouldnt. Besides, David used a slingshot he didnt throw stones.
"I am not what the media is portraying me as..." But what about those little boys. he didn't confirm or deny anything. He is still suspect. And quoting scripture does not exonerate him. He kept making jokes..."I'll be here next Sunday too" What I can't stand is a so called preacher quoting "appropriate" biblical scripture to cover the truth. 1 boy, I can overlook..maybe even 2. But 4?!?!? Nahhhhhh. Something is definitely zesty @ New Birth. All he did was duck, dodge, and evade. But alas, its not our job to judge...its God.

Everybody has a little freak in them.
First of all lets start at the top.
He wish he was a TOP.
His wig was awful,
Face is ugly as H_ELL, body looks hot thou.
He walked on stage defeated and guilty & freaky.
His wife has to know that they both have the same needs.
I blame the lazy useless parents for allowing this to happen to their kids.
Once a Freak always a freak.
I think he's approaching it the right way, by not saying anything. The media will twist your words and make a mockery of you as needed. Maybe if he says he's not gay, a 17 year old secret will come to surface...Who knows why he didn't just come flat out and say it? All I know is, when you talk too much in the media, you get in trouble. Even if he wins the case and is guilty, that's a battle he has to fight with God. If he is innocent that's a battle his accusers have to fight with God.
so,so sad and i am mad at him with that tight fighting suit and wacked azz jheri curl he is sportin'...another web page had a picture of him seated and his spiritial son standing around him..and on the bishop's desk was framed photos of young men..no,no,no...it is best for the man to step the hell down from the ministry..it is a wrap..the feds are going to start digging thru his bank statement and his accounts with the church..so dude better do what is right..wasn't he married at one point?
This is why so many ppl don't believe in churches because now and days these priest have no morals whether it was consented or not how as a minister can you justify sleeping with young men.. Nasty and he shouldn't burn he should live with his sins... BBM 2240E71A 23 blk fem nyc
