Late Bishop Eddie Long Allegedly Buried In $100k Casket, Has Caused Social Media To Spazz Out!!!
Reader, apparently there are pictures floating around Facebook and online of Bishop Eddie Long in his "alleged" $100k coffin, wearing a clerical gown has caused much online conversation. The late Bishop of the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, LITHONIA Ga, was laid to rest yesterday with family, friends, clergy, former Gov. Roy Barnes, Deion Sanders, and others present and delivering tributes.
Someone took pictures of the bishop in his high price casket and posted them online and folk are making light of the situation. Not only is this disrespectful in my opinion but being that its church folk doing it is even more disturbing. In my humble opinion, there's nothing wrong per-say with the pictures of Bishop Long's last earthly appearance in which for me he looked extremely well put together in his red and white bishop attire. The problems I have is with the jokes.
But when you think about it this is a common practice of laying the body of the deceased out for viewing and display at most American funerals, among all religious faiths, as part of the funeral ritual or service. But this coming custom of having pictures taken and flashed across social media is something all new.
Do you think posting the pictures of Bishop Eddie Long in his casket was a form of disrespect?
Update: Folks are asking this guy to remove the pictures he posted of Bishop Eddie Long in his casket. They say it's "Offensive" and "disrespectful". But what about these pictures of Dr Martin Luther King in his casket? Are they also Offensive And Disrespectful?
