Of course Long denies these allegations, what else do you expect from people pretending to be men & women of myths (god)?

And he is ensured 100% blind support from his cult following.

Don't rush to judge. As of now these are still allegations.

Hypocrisy at its best!
I find it hilarious that every time one of these "men of god" (and I use that term very loosely!) gets caught with their hand in the honey pot their sheep/followers/zombies come out of the woodwork with their cries of "don't judge!" and "innocent until proven guilty" .... excuse me, but didn't Mr. Long make his living out of judging people and condemning to hell anyone that didn't follow his believes? Goose, meet Gander.

I hope this not true about Bishop Eddie Long. I am going to pray for Bishop Eddie Long, but I know he preaches against homosexual. I am not to judge the bishop but the true should come out. I will pray for the young men because they need to seek the Lord in there life.

I'm not the type to take up for pastors because I'm very skeptical of quite a few, but I smell BS! According to these men, it started when they were underage. If that was the case, why not take him to CRIMINAL COURT instead of CIVIL COURT? This is all about money and attention. One of the accusers was arrested three months ago for breaking into Bishop Long's office and stealing cash and electronics. Now him and his homosexual "buddy" is taking Bishop Long to civil court to win a lump sum based off of allegations. In criminal court you must submit enough evidence to be proven guilty without a reasonable doubt, in Civil Court...you don't. Also in criminal court if they are found to be liars, they can face 10 years for perjury. IMO, this is a well thought out plan to retaliate against this man and to get money out him. I smell a rat!

Just ran across this story yesterday on the net, Allegations perhaps, retaliation probably. As good a Preacher as the Bishop is, he messed with the wrong gold diggers. If you are into that life style, please don't preach against it. I'm just sayin.... Bishop Long is only human(not God). His darkness has come to the light, and he will confront this issue in the media (TV, Internet, Radio talk shows) and in court now. However, if you truly believe in God, this to shall past. Give those G/diggers some quiet cash and repent your ways. I know he's not the first black pastor to be accused of this...and he probably won't be the last also.

If this is true how sad! If it's a lie how sad! But what is most sad and dishardning is to know thethat some will use this to stay in and justify staying in sin and not receiving JESUS as their Savior! Yes How SAD, And for the one that wants the blow job be carefull, very carefull. not that you read , know, or believe the word of God. but it truly say's touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm. ever read about /David and King Saul. but I guess this a time for Satan to use you to release his filth.HOW SAD.

For many years those of us with sense knew that Eddie Long was running a business and not a church. He fired his "un-Godly" Deacon board and had full control over all funds. He is a false prophet and a phony. Nothing about him exudes the word of God, nothing!

Then you have idiots who write him $15k checks, think RHOA DeShawn Snow, and several associates that I know.

They are all idiots worshiping a prosperity preachin' pulpit pimp!

Time for this Republic too revoke these pagan religious institutions tax-exempt status. Force them to live and earn the same as we all do here. These con men and women have lived long enough from the stolen wealth and and personally profited from not paying their share in taxes. One of the main caused for this Republic economic crisis, these parasites purchase automobiles, jewelry, clothing, land and homes all in the name of their tax-exempt organization. This is criminal and a insult to normal thinking people. Long should first be charged with pretending to be a "Man of God", as should all pretending clergy members. By what or whose authority have these cons been awarded these self proclaimed positions? These are delusional, self proclaimed men & women with little to no system of accountability or checks and balances, kinda like our Congressional cartel. How are they empowered? by the sheer ignorance, arrogance and gullibility of the masses.
At any rate, this will not hurt Long, the sheeple, will blindly follow anyone as long as they don't have too own self thought, accountability or responsibility.
