Bishop Eddie Long Cancels Media Appearances After Third Lawsuit

September 23, 2010 on CNN:
A third lawsuit has been filed against Atlanta-based megachurch pastor Eddie Long, alleging coercion, deception and manipulation that involved a sexual relationship with a young male, CNN has learned.

Through a spokesman earlier on Tuesday, Long denied similar allegations in two other lawsuits filed over the past two days.

"We categorically deny the allegations," he said. "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."


  1. Why is CNN's sole focus on offering PR strategies to help Long weather this crisis, without considering--even for a moment--that the allegations might be true? This is toadyism, masquerading as journalism.

  2. Has Long been given asylum in the Vatican? The "Holy" Roman Catholic Church protects it's Paedophile priests.

  3. <span> 1 Corinthians 1 verse 26, and we've alluded to it. Let me take you to it. "Consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise. God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things that are strong. And...implied...God has chosen the base things of the world and the despised, God has chosen, the things that are not that He might nullify the things that are that no man should boast before God." Now listen to the next verse, "By His doing you are in Christ Jesus." It is only by God's doing that you've come to believe the truth of God's revelation. "It is by His doing you are in Christ who became to us wisdom from God." The only thing that ever makes anybody embrace divine wisdom is God's work in that heart. Wisdom from God, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption all come from God because God has chosen to give it to us, so that just as it is written, verse 31, "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord." You can't get there through the natural process of human reason.</span>
