The Bishop faced charges of sexual coercion. These charges have been filed by two men.
According to them, Eddie Long persuaded them to having sex with him in exchange for lavish trips, cars and cash from New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.
The Bishop and his spokesman deny all allegations saying:
We categorically deny the allegations. It is very unfortunate that someone has taken this course of action. Our law firm will be able to respond once attorneys have had an opportunity to review the lawsuit.
Well, this indeed had been an embarrassing day for the holy church.
The suits, filed Tuesday in DeKalb County, Georgia, allege that Long used his position as a spiritual authority and bishop to coerce young male members and employees of his New Birth Missionary Baptist Church into sex.
Long took one plaintiff, Anthony Flagg, 21, to overnight trips to a half dozen American cities, Flagg’s suit alleges.
The suit said,
Long shared a bedroom and engaged in intimate sexual contact with plaintiff Flagg including kissing, massaging, masturbating of plaintiff Flagg by defendant Long and oral sexual contact..
These are the people who boast of religion and justice and now look at their unmasked faces.
Truth or not but this sure is a shameful incident, isn’t it?
