Bishop Eddie Long Responds to Lawsuit

Bishop Eddie Long

Bishop Eddie Long has responded to the allegations that he has had inappropriate relationships with at least 4 young men. You can watch part of his statement at the following link.

One thing was made crystal clear. Bishop Long is staying in his pulpit and he ain’t going anywhere. I suspect that will hold true no matter what the outcome of these trials, if they ever get that far, will be.

Please remember when commenting on this incident that Bishop Long is innocent until proven guilty.

  1. There is a couple things I find very disturbing in the media reporting of this situation. I keep reading the terms “same-sex attraction” and “gay romance”. Let’s be clear here, sex between a spiritual leader/mentor and one of their followers cannot be by definition consensual. If these charges are true this is much more sinister than infidelity or homosexuality.

    • Hi Boyd,

      I think you are right. If Eddie were a schoolteacher and these accusations/allegations turned out to be true they would put him in jail. It’s too bad these same standards don’t apply to clergy anymore. They use to (1Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:7-8) but don’t seem to matter much any longer.

      Thanks,

      Phil

    • Hi Lynn,

      That’s because people have lost the fear of God and have become lovers of themselves. 2Peter 2 is a fitting description as to the character of some of these folks. Personally speaking I hope Eddie is innocent but who knows huh.

      Thanks,

      Phil
