I notice last night at work that #EddieLong and #Bishop Eddie Long were trending high topics on "Twitter." So I check to see what all the fuss was about....And I be dog-gone "The Bishop" is being sued for sexual manipulation coercion.....From what I gather he's being accused/sued by two men who "claim" he shrewdly and deviously influence them into having sex with them...I'm sorry!! Personally I don't believe one word of this.... I think it's either a smear tactic or some kind of revenge plot....I may take issue with some of his teaching.... In which I do....But these charges I'm having a hard time believing... And if there any truth to the allegations against "The Bishop" it's that they were in a consensual relationship....Which is wrong also but...I don't think an adult man can manipulate force another adult man into anything.... I could be underestimating the situation, or maybe I overestimate people's ability to say no....I just don't believe he sexually abused a grown man.
I do remember when Ruben Armstrong in his book “Snakes in the Pulpit" made similar charges against "The Bishop".....He claim "The Bishop" was on the down low and that his staff knew it....I found it interesting that no one sued Armstrong for liable; he also made some explosive charges against two other pastors.
