Bishop Eddie Long accused of sexual coercion

CNN is reporting that two men have filed a lawsuit claiming that Bishop Eddie Long coerced them into sex.

According to the report, Bishop Long took Anthony Flagg (age 21) on many overnight trips. During these trips Bishop Long “shared a bedroom 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.”

The other plantiff, Maurice Murray Robinson (age 20), claims that Bishop Long took him to New Zealand in October 2008. During this trip Bishop Long “engaged in oral sex with him.” After the New Zealand trip, it seems that Bishop Long regularly engaged in sexual touching and other sexual acts with Robinson.

A spokesman for Bishop Long said that “we categorically deny the allegations.”

This kind of stuff really makes me sad. I am praying that these allegations are false. I want to believe that all of our pastors and bishops are walking upright before the Lord. However, I also know that anything is possible and that no one is exempt from temptation and sin.

There is a school of thought that believes that Bishop Long should file a counter suit if the allegations are false, like he claims they are. Well, the Bible isn’t the most pro-lawsuit document out there. So, there may be a little hesitation on the countersuit front.

It may be tough for some people to believe that two men would join forces to craft such fantastic allegations. I don’t know what the truth is. Here is what I do know. Whether these allegations are true or not, Bishop Long, Anthony Flagg and Maurice Murray Robinson desperately need our prayers.

This is obviously a developing story. I will continue to keep you updated as I learn more.

Here is a video from CNN that explains the whole story.

    Matthew 24:10-13 – And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.

    Prayer is needed, but one must also research the Faith, they've been taught, by Saved Sinners for oneselfs. Otherwise, if you never have known the voice of GOD, then will you “Pastor” falls, you won't know what to do.

    Guilty or Innocent? The sex photos that show Bishop Long and the 2 men engaging in gay sex is pretty incriminating, anyone who says he's innocent CLEARLY has not seen the photos!

    I understand your point. However, I'm not ready to say that anyone is guilty or innocent until everything comes out in court.
