Nasty a$$ Eddie Long, who has been put on blast by four men who claim he was bribing them with all kinds of trinkets for gay sex, had something to say this morning to his New Birth congregation:

Georgia pastor Eddie Long, accused of coercing young males into sexual relationships, told his congregation Sunday that “this is probably the most difficult time” of his entire life, but that he intends to fight the allegations against him. He said his first responsibility was his family, and the some 25,000 members of the Atlanta-area New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. However, he added that he would be “remiss” not to address “the world.”

“I’ve been accused, I’m under attack. I want you to know, as I said earlier, that I am not a perfect man,” he said. “But this thing, I’m going to fight.”
“And I want you to know one other thing,” he told the cheering crowd Sunday morning. “I feel like David against Goliath, but I’ve got five rocks and I haven’t thrown one yet.” He then turned on his heel and walked away from the pulpit, ending his 20-minute address.

Long, who led the growth of the Atlanta-area New Birth Missionary Baptist Church to 25,000 members, spoke about the matter during the 8 a.m. worship service. He also scheduled a 10 a.m. news conference. The church also has an 11 a.m. service. Throngs of worshippers packed into the church auditorium early Sunday, with lines of vehicles backed up for half a mile along the streets. Drivers said the turnout was unprecedented for the massive church.

      Reputation tarnish, i think not. this man ain’t going nowhere like all the others. i guarantee more money was thrown today at the church then at the strip-club. he’s gonna just take a little break and return with a sermon “i’ve been to hell and back, and i sur-viveeee, can i get an amen”. the church is now over 50 000 strong. smh!!!

    • Mama Mila

      Double agree!

    • jelly

      This man is guilty or why else would the B.J. put him on blast? I believe that she has solid evidence on him, and he’s aware of it. He should be ashamed of himself for fooling his entire church and his family ask older members of his old church Travelers Rest Baptist Church, they will tell you the truth about his DL lifestyle.

    LOL This guy is gayer than a bag of dycks.

    Slick head muthafugga.

    Thankfully I’m not a religious zombie and not reading out that bible like some idiotic black folks.

    • Rachell

      This is not a racist situation leave that out of it because God love all of us no matter what color we are.

    • Bootylish

      well too bad you are stupid for thinking only Blacks Read the bible.

    • NAS

      Yeah, there are sure are alot of black zombies worshiping false prophets. Like the article said the cars were parked a half mile outside the church. He probably gettin paid more than ever.

  • Lovey

    OK New Birth is always packed and there is always traffic trying to get in and get out. Im sure more ppl showed up than usual to be “nosey” but that isnt anything out of the ordinary.

  • http://www.DefGlam.com @VonniMediaMogul

    That title is REAL disrespectful. That wasn’t hardly funny. Was it really worth an eye-catching headline to write something so blasphemous like that? That was just ignorant as hell.You really need to change that.

  • Sugar

    I think the best thing he can do for his reputation right now is address the allegations in a little more detail. I saw the little speech he made in church today and in my opinion, he made himself sound guilty by being so vague.

    • New (Nihala)

      I agree. The statement he made in the “press conference” could have been said days ago as well. It really sounds like he’s prepping for his trial by being silent so as not to have anything he says now come back to haunt him during the trial. And if he truly didn’t do these things, there’s no need to prep. His story would stay the same…

    • MissB

      I couldn’t help, but notice the vague defense also. Strange choice of words on his part….

    • TiredOfStupidity

      Hello!

  • Trentaye

    Look @ his hair!

    • SHAW

      lol

  • nowornever

    smh. I am disgusted more than ever. I wonder how long till the first lady puts in her divorce papers.

    • Bug

      I agree, I think the divorce papers are coming very soon!

  • Mrs. Rance

    I would say he said a whole lot of nothing, but he said so little. He said nothing all the same. He didn’t even deny the allegations. He said he was not a perfect man more times than I can count. That sounded like an admission. I also think he was lying when he said he would fight. I’m sure he’s going to try to settle with the boys. If he fights EVERYTHING will come out and ther is no way he wants that.

  • K

    I’m still waiting for him to say “I didn’t do it”.

    • chitowninthehouse

      CO-SIGN

  • Trentaye

    He is GUILTY! That’s what he gets for coming for the gays! I hope they expose him for what he is! This is the kick in the chest that the black church deserves! They help breed and spread hate for the GAYS… let the lenching commence!

    • N-GGA'S: LOST BEYOND REACH

      Being gay ain’t right I don’t care how much T.V. try’s to push it down my throat. Some were along the line something didn’t go right wit u or a strong male figure was not around, U a victim of circumstance. If one more gay insults black people by comparing their stroggle to ours, im gonna explode.

  • sunshine

    Pastor is right its not up to the public to decide his faith, its up to God. Keep your head up Pastor only God knows. I dont believe pastor was that dumb to do those things especially being in the public eye. This world is all about money now so sad smh. U cant win a lawsuit off everything. Next ppl be tryin to suit just for looking at them wrong.

    • Trentaye

      Okay, so four people are lying on him for nothing? baby puh-lease!

    • Sugar

      “I dont believe pastor was that dumb to do those things especially being in the public eye.”

      Celebrities/Pro-Athletes/Politicians/Etc do dumb things all the time. You sound like you may be a member of his church which is fine, but please be open-minded to what may be the truth. No one knows for sure if he is guilty OR innocent yet.

    • InMyOpinion

      Im sorry Sunshine but… there are plenty of people in the public eye that does stupid things, expecting that their money will keep them safe. We, the public, shouldn’t judge but we can give our opinion and mine is that he is guilty or he would have said, “I DID NOT DO IT!” Im glad it’s out. Granted our pastors are human and make mistakes too, but I do not want to follow a hypocrite. Who does?

  • Bella

    Better the Devil you KNOW (than the One you don’t)

    • redywhenur

      well we’re being formally introduced, aren’t we.

  • SHAW

    I saw his so called press conference. He could have said that crap days ago.

    • duh

      The Bishop didn’t owe the heathen culture a press conference days ago.He said in the article above, that his FIRST responsibility was to his family and the members of the church.This is why he waited to SUNDAY to address the allegations against him.

    • InMyOpinion

      @ duh…. What you failed to realize is that he joined the heathen culture years ago and didn’t you! If his family came first, they would have been on the business trips, if his church came first, he wouldn’t be picking out his “boyfriends” out of the audience. Yes, he waited until Sunday to slap all of his members in the face!

  • DaddyKat

    *sobbing* “He took me on trips around the world. He gave me money. He bought me a car. He bought me news clothes and those Jordan’s I wanted. He told me now to go around wasting my life and fornicating with these young hos out here. He paid for my tuition. I am really hurting here, I don’t know I am going to recover from all the blessings he gave me … I going to need a lot of money to ease this pain!” -Flagg

    GTFOH

    • Trentaye

      You GTFOH, regardless he is supposed to be so righteous, and so ANTI-GAY… I don’t care how long it took them to come farward, or how the Bishop bought them things, he should not have been sleeping with kids PERIOD. Again, you GTFOH!!!

    • DaddyKat

      @Trentaye – u must be gay. Sorry Charlie but your lifestyle is not approved by the Most High. Even if Long was involved in some indiscretions, GAY IS STILL WRONG AND A SIN.

      Romans 1:27
      In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

    • Rachell

      Money will never ease your pain and from what you are saying he never asked you for sexual favors for all those blessings he bestowed upon you. You owe it to yourself and God to pray for him and not presume that he is guilty because he is accused. We live in a very cruel world were money is the leading factor of peoples actions and accusations of innocent people

    • DaddyKat

      For Trentaye:

      Romans 1:28
      Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.

    • Moanmyname( Loving my natural self)

      @Trent
      can you honestly say that being gay is right and natural? no, answer me because it boggles my mind when gay ppl think the lifestyles their living is right. if it was so “right”, then two man/two women would have babies. i know its not right to judge but i will never support gays.never. call me stupid and what not nothing u guys do will never change my mind.

    • Trentaye

      Moanmyname, my girl you got life messed up. See girl, it’s like this… I don’t want or need your approval. F**k what you think and F**K how you feel!!! YOU DON’T RUN THE WORLD, THE GAYS OR ME. The only thing I/We want is equal protection and equal rights under the law. When your disliking the GAYS effects our MONEY & HEALTH we’ll holla at you…. until then you can kick rocks honey!

  • MS. TANYA

    people need to stop being FOLLOWERS! what’s wrong with having faith in GOD AND LIVING YOUR LIFE without giving your money to someone who is buying expensive cars and homes while his followers are strugling to mske ends meet. Wake up PEOPLE IF YOU CAN READ, YOU CAN HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD! READ THE BIBLE ON YOUR OWN AND STOP FOLLOWING THESE MEN AND WOMEN WHO CLAIM TO BE GODLY. NO MAN IS WITHOUT SIN. EVERY PASTOR YOU SEE TODAY IS ALL ABOUT MONEY AND BUSINESS. NONE OF THE SO CALLED TIDES IS GOING INTO GOD’S POCKETS. IF I LIVE AROUND THE CORNER, DOWN THE STREET OR ACROSS TOWN FROM A CHURCH AND IF I PRAY EVERYDAY TO THE LORD DON’T YOU THINK HE HEARS MY PRAYERS AS WELL! COME ON PEOPLE WAKE UP AND TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIVES. THOSE PREACHERS AND PASTORS ARE NOT GOING TO DIE WITH YOU AND CAN’T GET YOU ANY CLOSER TO HEAVEN THAN YOU CAN ON YOUR OWN. MY MOM ALWAYS TAUGHT ME TO NEVER EVER BE A FOLLOWER!

    • K

      First of all it’s “tithes”… ALL pastors are not about money. Most churches are small and produce little income. Many pastors are doing the right thing. This is just the lie of the devil to get folks to abandon church. The devil loves when leaders like E L get exposed, because it pushes people who look to men instead of God away even more.

    • Rachell

      You must learn to be a follower before you can be a leader. There are some good leaders out there but everybody must be careful who they follow. I do agree about being a follwer of Christ first and people will not be so easily deceived by man.

    • MS. TANYA

      FIRST OF ALL WHOMEVER YOU ARE “K” THE REASON I DIDN’T SPELL “TITHES” RIGHT IS BECAUSE I’VE NEVER PAID THEM I’M SMART ENOUGH TO PRAY ON MY OWN AND I’M NOT TRYING TO TELL ANYONE NOT TO GO TO CHURCH! IT’S JUST HOW I FEEL , I FEEL THAT I’M RESPONSIBLE FOR MY LIFE HERE ON EARTH AS WELL AS WHERE I END UP AFTER I DIE. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT GIVING SOMEONE A PERCENTGTE OF MY INCOME IS NOT SERVING ANY PURPOSE WHATSOEVER AND I KNOW YOU CAN’T BUY YOUR WAY INTO HEAVEN, AND I KNOW THAT WHEN I DO DIE THE PASTOR HAS NO SAY SO IN ME GETTING INTO HEAVEN. I’M ALSO SMART ENOUGH NOT TO PUT MY FAITH IN ANY MAN OR WOMAN NO MATTER WHAT EARTHLY TITLE THEY CLAIM. I ‘M ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR MY OWN PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND HE AND ONLY HE WILL JUDGE ME. IT WILL HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT CHURCH I DID OR DIDN’T BELONG TO BECAUSE NOTHING RUN BY MEN OR WOMEN OF THIS EARTH IS 100% SIN FREE. DON’T JUDGE ME JUST BECAUSE I REFUSE TO BE A FOLLOWER!

    • flyshortypyt

      God has pockets???

  • sunshine

    The public thinks hes gulity, my spirit says the truth will be prevail. He respresent a man of God n since i respect God im not going to judge.I leave that to a higher power.

    • Sugar

      “The public thinks hes gulity, my spirit says the truth will be prevail.”

      This statement insinuates that you truly believe this man is innocent. It is too early to tell either way. He may be innocent but I wonder if you would be this sure so early on if it was your son/nephew/brother making allegations against him.

      Also, just because he puts himself out there as a representative of God doesn’t mean that he is.

  • Hope

    This FAKE HAIRED booty bouncer need to confess he rapist those young men period.

  • Hope

    When we hear “I am not a perfect man” we’re bracing ourselves for the other shoe to drop .

    • chitowninthehouse

      Yes…and that shoe is going to drop REAL SOON. His speech was very CAREFUL…sorry, but I believe he did what they are saying…

    • Rachell

      At least he is man enough to admitt he is not perfect but that don’t make him guilty of these charges against him. Every single person on this earth is guilty before God that is why God sent Jesus to Die for our sins. We must learn to have mercy!

    • Bella

      Perfection reveals imperfection – there is no other way to “picture” perfection except through imperfection. You can NOT perceive one without the other…

      If there is none PERFECT then there is NONE imperfect.

      So why do we struggle with “perceive” imperfection?

  • woozy

    @ MS. TANYA EXACTLY!!!!

  • yvonne

    He has to be honest, hes not only deceiving his cong. but himself too, obviously he cant deceive God, if the allegations are true and he continues to lie, God is going to make his life very miserable, Do not mock God. This is not about his family, the church, public, its very much about God and how these so called men of God continue to use God for their personal gain, disrespecting God behind the pulpit, it got to stop.

    • peenutgallery

      well said!

  • mosiane

    The only reason he is not stepping down or admitting his wrongs is ONE reason and ONE reason only… $$$!

    It’s greed that is fueling this charade. It is not about God but about how much money this made can continue to make before the civil suits come in.

    • mosiane

      **how much money this guy can continue to make

  • Africanking

    I am sorry to break the news to you guys but There is No God *__*. Your God is made up by a human. I am so sorry to break your heart😦

    • Rachell

      I am very sorry for your soul because there is a heaven and a hell and there is a real true and living God who love you weather you accept it or not. Hell is waiting for you if you don’t change your ways.
      I would hate for you to find out when you die that hell is real because you can’t never get out of that tormenting place forever. Accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior before its too late for you.

    • B!tchPleeeeeeeese

      Hush up with your lies… God is real, and when you start experiencing bad luck, just know it’s the God you don’t believe in that’s paying you back for your disrespect…🙂

    • ME

      “Only a fool says in his heart there is no God” (Psalm 14:1) Sorry to break the news to you but, you sir, are a fool.

    • Bella

      Perhaps…
      God said my heart(mind) is a fool; instead of the fool saying there is no God.

    • dismymoney

      I wonder if lions pray?

    • Trentaye

      Wow Rachell, not everyone believes in GOD and certainly NOT CHRIST. I believe in a supreme consciousness but not CHRIST or any of the other MONEY HUNGRY religions. I am the ANTI CHRIST because I HATE christians not GOD. GOD has NOTHING to do with you christians!

  • xoxo

    HE’s going to settle out of court . Not on this one. If thr fed,s drop it the state will pick it up. The money spent out of state is call charity money. And they are locking up judges. Charity groups. Mayors. Like crazy down south.

  • Rachell

    All of America has forgotten innocent until proven guilty.
    Everybody need to be careful of judging and condeming anybody because nobody is completely innocent of anything. Only God can judge Bishop Eddie Long and if he is guilty of anything God has already forgiven him of his sins and has restored him.
    America need to learn how to have mercy and grace on people weather innocent or guilty. May God have mercy on all those people who are throwing stones at Bishop: Eddie Long.
    I love you Bishop Long and I am praying for you.

    • redywhenur

      pray for all of his many, many victims as well.

    • Hal

      You must first confess and ask to be forgiven. Please note Rachell, the Rev. did NOT deny the charges. He said he was not the monster they are making him out to be, but he did NOT say that he did not do it. Also, if he was not so aggressive against gays, it would be bad but not so bad. But this man has condemmed others for their lifestyle while taking part in that lifestyle.

    • peenutgallery

      yes God forgives sin, but how do you go on preaching righteousness to others when you yourself is not right..pastors are supposed to be Gods chosen, to lead people. If he is guilty how do you restore trust in your congregation and continue to save non-believers after your downfall. YEs there is restoration but is it possible for a homosexual..if indeed true?

    • Miss Trina

      HAL..THE MAN CLEARLY SAID HE IS NOT THE PERSON THAT THE MEDIA HAS PAINTED HIM OUT TO BE..WE ALL KNOW THAT THE MEDIA HAS PAINTED HIM IN TO THIS ” I TOUCH LIL BOYZ PREACHER” HE CLEARLY SAID THAT HE IS NOT WHO THE MEDIA HAS MADE HIM OUT TO BE..ARE YOU SAYING BECAUSE HE DIDN’T DENY IT OR SAY IT THE WAY OU WANTED HIM TO MEANS THAT HE DIDN’T DENY THE CHARGES???IM CONFUSED…IF SOME ONE PAINTED YOU TO BE A THEIF IN THE PUBLIC EYE AND YOU SAID I AM NOT THE PERSON THAT THE MEDIA HAS PORTRAYED ME TO BE.DOES YOUR STATEMENT MEAN YOUR A THEIF??? I WOULD THINK NOT SINCE YOU CLEARLY SAID YOU ARE NOT WHO THE MEDIA HAS MADE YOU OUT TO BE…LOL!!! WOW
