Wednesday's lawsuit, filed in DeKalb County, Georgia, State Court, was brought on behalf of Jamal Parris, now 23, who was a teenager at the time he joined Long's church.
The suit, which claims Long encouraged Parris to call him "Daddy," also names the church and a youth academy as defendants.
Believe it or not sometimes evil people do get their comeuppance. And Bishop Eddie Long is an example of just that. Long is the biggest gay bashing preacher in this country and has been for quite some time. And now we find out that Long has been chasing young men for years.
The suit, also filed by attorney B.J. Bernstein, claims Long engaged in sexual acts with Parris. The young man eventually became a church employee and served as personal assistant to Long and traveled with him, the suit says. The pastor continued to engage in sexual activity with Parris and gave him money, trips and gifts, the suit says.
Three lawsuits have been filed alleging that Bishop Eddie Long had sexual relations with at least three young men on several occasions over several years. They suits also claim that Long took the young men, some were teens, on trips and bought them lavish gifts.
All of this was going on while the Bentley driving, private plane flying Bishop Eddie Long was making life hell for gays and lesbians with his hate speech from the pulpit of his mega-church the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in the Atlanta area.
So now all of those idiots in Long's mega-church know that their tithes have been going to a man who is nothing more than a alleged pedophile. Religion it seems is the perfect place for evil people to take advantage of weak people.
I hope that Bishop Eddie Long ends-up where he belongs and that is in hell with all of the other pedophiles and thieves. In the meantime it's likely his parishioners will make a way for him to stay exactly where he is, in the pulpit, and continue to give him their money like the good lemmings that they are.
Maybe Eddie Long should have been a Catholic priest, he would fit right in.
