Trusted religious official, Bishop Eddie Long is sued for allegedly having sex encounters with two male members

Leader of the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, Bishop Eddie Long is accused of allegedly coercing two men (who were 17 and 18 at the time) into sexual relations.  The megachurch is located in Atlanta, Georgia.

The lawsuit says

“Defendant Long has a pattern and practice of singling out a select group of young male church members and using his authority as bishop over them to ultimately bring them to a point of engaging in a sexual relationship”

The names of the Plaintiffs are being withheld at this time, because they were both considered minors at the time.

Long’s counsel says they have not received copies of the lawsuit yet.

Rev. Al Sharpton said on the Tom Joyner Morning Show on Wednesday that the Bishop is innocent until proven guilty and instead of going into the turbulence of speculation, we should rise above the turbulence like airline pilots do on a daily basis; who rise above turbulence instead of going head on into it.

Daughter of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King, Rev. Bernice King is a pastor of the megachurch.
