Why are we so obsessed with people personal lives? This Bishop Eddie Long scandal is flooding the whole internet. If the allegations from the four (not one) young males are true, this is the same old story that happened before: High profile religious leader deceives everyone by pretending to be anti-homosexual as he partakes in the “sinful” acts himself. Can we say Ted Haggard, George Rekers,Billy James Hargis,Roy Clements,John Paulk,Paul Barnes,Lonnie Latham, etc?
It’s so much more we can focus on. Bishop Eddie Long is not the only thing fucking young black men. How about the public school and justice systems? They have been fucking them for years. Look at the ratio of Black and non black inmates in any state prison. Yet I don’t see twitter trending topics or tabloid-blog headlines about that. The Jena 6 received less coverage. These closet cases are not new to politics, religion, or life. Why is it such a gag? If I hear one more person ask “Why can’t they just be honest?” This backlash is the reason the closet is so filled up.
If the accusations are not true, then this definitely must be a test of his faith like Job in the Bible. He is having one of those WWJD moments <inserts a Jesus confused look>. I think the Lord has prepared him for this battle. If not, I am sure his mega congregation has prepared his bank account to handle these types of situations aka settlements. The upside to this is that he will know how Jesus really felt instead of pretend to know behind a luxurious pulpit. The persecution, discrimination, and mistreatment that Jesus endured, he will know from experience. Ironically, the LGBT community knows those pretty well already. I wish the Bishop the best of luck and I will send the same contemptuous prayers up to God like he did with the gays he spoke against aka humped against. AMEN! Please share with your friends.
