BREAKING NEWS: 4th Young Male Comes Forward In Bishop Eddie Long Sex Scandal! PLUS Bishop Long To Step Down Sunday?!

​ ​ ​ ​

We called him the Tiger Woods of the pulpit yesterday, and unfortunately that comparison is right on the money. As with Tiger Woods, there seems to be a new "Spiritual Son" coming forward every other day in the Bishop Eddie Long scandal.  Read more about the FOURTH young man to come forward this afternoon when you go inside....

The Associated Press is reporting that a fourth young man has come forward saying Bishop Eddie Long coerced him into a sexual relationship.  Attorney B.J. Bernstein says she is filing a lawsuit today on behalf of the member of New Birth Charlotte. New Birth Charlotte is a satellite church run by Long in Charlotte, N.C. The man claims to have met the Bishop in May 2005.

The lawsuit says the Bishop took the teenager to Kenya in July 2005 when he was 17, and also engaged in sexual activities with him. It said that Long later encouraged him to move to Atlanta, where the activity continued until early 2009. 

Story is developing...

UPDATE:  The lawsuit was filed by Spencer LeGrande, a member of New Birth Charlotte.

The lawsuit said Long told LeGrande "I will be your dad" and invited the 17-year-old to journey to Kenya with him in July 2005. LeGrande said that Long gave him a sleeping pill on that trip and that the two engaged in sexual acts.

Long apparently convinced LeGrande that "engaging in a sexual relationship was a healthy component of his spiritual life."

Bishop Long is expected on Sunday to deliver the first public message since the men accused him of having sexual relationships with them. He has vehemently denied any wrongdoing through his lawyer and a Twitter posting.  Other sources report he may step down after giving his remarks.

such a sad situation and i

such a sad situation and i agree "not looking good" for this man. About the coercion- its amazing and I don't think someone would understand it unless they were UNfortunate enough to witness or be in an (unhealthy) church where pastors are so idolized that they are able to abuse their leadership role and manipulate and control OTHERwise sensible people. No doubt in a case like this, ( if true) someone is his position could use/abuse his 'role" , not to mention take advantage of young vulnerable men in situations where they are desperate for a male role model in their life. I would think they would go into it thinking this would be somewhat of a father-son relationship and never imagining that they would be abused, misused.... and probably even penalized, disciplined in some ways if they did not comply to what he was asking of them. Its ridiculous.....and hey person up there --who says ur glad to be an atheist... I guess that sounds kinda funny in light of this situation- who would want to be caught up in this mess. But just wanna let u know....there is without a doubt a BIG, awesome, TRUE God out- there....dont get it twisted because of this:') He loves and knows everything about u- did before u were even formed in your mommy's womb... so ask HIM to reveal himself to you. No man should be exalted to the level some of these spiritual leaders are being exalted to....JESUS is the only one that is worthy of being exalted. take care yall'

Bishop Long is suppose to give a sermon tomorrow. Let's see what kind of character this guy is. We are on our knees and all will be revealed in 40 days and 40 nights. God only allows you to get away with so much and then he comes in, taps you on the shoulder and remind you who is in charge.

TD Jakes and Tyler Perry are

TD Jakes and Tyler Perry are not making these movies just for laughs. I Can Do Bad All By Myself, Precious, Madea's family ReUnion, Colored Girls, Woman Why Art Thou Loosed, and many more movies like this is going to the theaters so blacks can open our eyes and be aware of this travesty in our homes and community. People can sit a discuss science, the bible, individual beliefs, and if there is any truth to this story of Long. But bottom line is if these boys were yours what would you tell them? How would you begin to counsel 4 black teenage boys on what happen to them by a supposive "man of the cloth"? What would you say to thousands of people who come to Long teaching? And for people who wanted to turn their life over to God after hearing Longs teaching, and now this? What does your science book tell you to say, the bible what does it say of how to handle this? These were kids.

I live about 15-20mins away

I live about 15-20mins away from Newbirth&my close friend is a member of this church. She has invited me to attend the church on numerous occasions but for some reason, I have not attended. I watched Bishop preach on streaming faith&was moved by his deliverance of scripture. I have seen on tv where a gang member gave his live to christ instead of gang banging and living in the streets. But..I am not one to judge this man. Only God&these young men know the real truth. So, I reserve the right to NOT pass judgement yet. Bishop Long, IMO is innocent until proven guilty. This is the LAW of the LAND. So, let him have his day in court. Let them bring proof that there was wrong doing. If any man or woman has ever had anyone charge you with something that you have not done, you too, are innocent until proven guilty. AND..two of those young men broke into his church and stole ipods, ipad, jewelry, etc BEFORE all of these allegations. The two young men could have been charged but Bishop dropped the charges. So, we don't know why. Maybe he is simply trying to help young black men out whom may have grown up in broken homes, very little money&nothing or noone to support them in their dreams for a better life. We DONT KNOW. BUT I my self will not pass judgement on this man until it has been investigated. Then..We shall see. In the meantime, I will pray for him, his family and the people who attend his church to worship. They will need prayer bcuz today, we must all wear our spiritual armor; the enemy is busy trying to destroy us and our lives to turn away from God.

They are even asking what Pope Benedict knew. It's just sad. I am trying not to pass judgement on Biship Eddie Long. I have enjoyed his sermons and feel for his family. I hope that this is not true.

When I was working at KFC a

When I was working at KFC a long time ago, one of my coworkers told me that most men at some point in time, at lease imagine having sex or oral sex with another man. And many act on it. I have had men tell me that they go both ways. At least, I'd rather a man be honest up front than to marry me and PRETEND, than to be out humping every Tom, Dick and Harry. I'm sick of these DL brothers not caring nothing about giving the women they are with diseases and giving them God knows what. Will any REAL MEN please stand up.

THERE ARE TONS OF DOWN LOW NIGGAS OUT THERE AND THEY ARE THAT WAY BECAUSE THEY DONT WANT THE BACKLASH AND RIDICULE BUT IN NO WAY DO STRAIGHT MEN OR WOMEN EVER WONDER WHAT ITS LIKE TO SAMPLE THE SAME SEX IF YOU DO YOUR NOT STRAIGHT . I BET IF YOU HAD ASKED YOUR DAD OR BROTHERS IF THAT THEORY WERE TRUE THEY WOULD WANT TO LYNCH YOUR COWORKER.

Ewwwww WTF is up with all these gay young boys & grown men??? Are vaginas too loose? Please believe if these young boys weren't gay they would've beat the **** out of or atleast stop dealing with Eddie Long [bishop or not] if he tried to molest them! & eddie Long is a sick f***! An embarrassment to Christianity, embarrassement to Black churches, embarrassment to Black men...
OMG...WTF?'s picture

I read book about the influx

I read book about the influx of black gay males in today's society. And the author stated that he believed most of this was coming from boys who don't have a positive and strong male influence to model themselves after and do not grow up with any male characteristics to pattern themselves after, so they inherit many female tendencies, such as we see today. And they gravitate toward men in a sexual way because their looking for their manhood and masculine tendencies because they didn't see that at home. Their just doing it in reverse. And anyone can see a black man today, who is not gay but has female tendencies because they are raised and surrounded by females. Why do you think you hear so many women say that black men today are less masculine? When black people decide to restore the nuclear family and black men begin to raise their son's in the same home, much of these issues will cease.

though i think homosexuality

though i think homosexuality is a sin and disgusting i do not believe it is a choice. homosexuality is the last acceptable form of discrimination in the world , the fact that we are even debating wether they can have the right to marry proves that, hate crimes against homosexuals dont bring nearly as much community outrage as it does when it happens against blacks hispanics and women,and the suicide rate for gay teens is through the roof , why would someone choose to be gay then isolate themselves be on the low and even kill themselves for who they are choosing to be, I dont know anyone who chooses to be hated , and unless there is a secret conspiracy to sprinkle fairy dust in the water supply i dont see the enviornmental causes either. though the lack of fathers in the black community and the fact that so many blk men are raised by mothers and grandmothers is a compelling argument that holds merit

This is interesting, because

This is interesting, because if you look around, most young boys are feminine. I think there is nothing masculine about men who where earrings, I don't care how straight they proclaim to be. I think it's truly sad that there are so many men act so feminine. Also, lawyers DO NOT take cases unless they feel they can actually win the case. To the people who think that there is no evidence, you better trust and believe there is some HARD evidence, (no pun intended), because they lawyer is requesting a TRIAL. We obviously aren't going to see all the evidence until there is actually a trial. Lets take it back to preschool, and go to Blue's Clue's - now PUT ON YOUR THINKING CAPS.... It ain't about IF he is guilty - and yes, I know, innocent until proven guilty -- but no lawyer will take a case without any evidence. Any one of you reading this, try to call a lawyer and tell them that someone coerced you into having sex, you better have some EVIDENCE to show.

HOT. ASS. MESS. I'm not

HOT. ASS. MESS. I'm not religious but I find this whole situation sad, crazy, pathetic, ridiculous, and almost strangely comical. Really, Bishop Long? REALLY? You're gonna go out of your way to condemn homosexuals, like myself, and then turn around and get it in with a bunch of teenage boys, attempting to keep their mouths shut with gifts and trips to the jungle? SHAME ON YOU. I'm still on the fence about where this is true or not, but this is not a good look for anyone. Hopefully this incident will open a dialogue on homosexuality in America, especially in the black community, and the status of the black church. Something tells me this will be used as a vehicle of condeming gays, but I have some hope that this will be an opportunity for change. Because there have been gays for thousands of years and there will continue to be homosexuals on into the future, and if tolerance is not developed, men like the Bishop will continue to lead destructive down low lifestyles.
