Even through Jasmyne Cannick and Keith Boykin exposed Bishop Eddie Long's hypocrisy years ago, everyone seems shocked by these latest allegations against Atlanta's favorite Jesus PIMP. The above rant is my favorite pull no punches take on the situation.
One of my favorite porn stars turned blogger Kevyn M doesn't take sides, but he does give the good Bishop too much of a pass.
That's the real point here. So in essence, if these allegations are true, then the "Bishop" is the most reprehensible, self-loathing Jesus Pimp there is. How many pastors buff up, slip on spandex and text pics of themselves to their young male "spiritual sons"?
All Eddie Long cares about is power, fame, money and apparently - dick. The man is a liar. The man is also a part of the reprehensible anti-gay movement which inspires hatred and violence against gay people in America. How many little gay boys have offed themselves after listening to gays being vilified from pulpits like Eddie Long's? How many Carl Walker-Hoovers are on these hate-mongers hit list?
And I disagree with Kevyn on another point, this scandal couldn't happen to just anybody. Most of us live authentic lives and don't go around condemning people for openly doing what we secretly do ourselves.
There are plenty of sayings to cover this situation: Chickens coming home to roost being my favorite (for several reasons).
Regretfully, redemption and stupidity go hand and hand. Eddie Long's Longfellows Youth Academy, where young men begin their "masculine journey" will take on deeper meaning after all is said, done and swept under the pew.
I wonder if Eddie Long ever heard of Carl Walker-Hoover? Check out the video below and know these things happen because of homo-hatred from the pulpit.
