Another Anti-Gay Fanatic Gets His Share Of (Young) Man Meat


Chances are more than good that if you hear a politician railing against gays or if you hear a preacher singling gays out for hell and damnation, the speaker is petrified of being found out for being gay himself. Yesterday two notorious closet queens, Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) helped lead a GOP filibuster against abolishing Don't Ask Don't Tell, favored by a majority of Americans and a majority of senators. Each man is racked with fear that he will be exposed as a homosexual.

And this week, another prominent gay-basher, a so-called "bishop" in an Atlanta Baptist megachurch, Eddie Long was exposed for someone coercing young men into having sex with him. Just as an investigation gets underway about why Georgia Senator-- a homophobe-- Saxby Chambliss has staffers running around leaving Internet messages that "All gays must die," the NY Times reports that lawsuits have been filed against "Bishop" Long for molesting two men.
In two lawsuits filed in DeKalb County, the men said that Bishop Long, a prominent minister and television personality, had used his position as a spiritual counselor to take them on trips out of state and perform sexual acts on them.

Bishop Long is the pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, an Atlanta suburb. It is one of the largest churches in the country.

“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,” said a suit filed by one of the men, Maurice Robinson, 20. The other man who filed suit is Anthony Flagg, 21...

Bishop Long is an outspoken critic of homosexuality and has been called by the Southern Poverty Law Center “one of the most virulently homophobic black leaders in the religiously based anti-gay movement.” He is the author of a book titled “What A Man Wants, What A Woman Needs: The Secret To Successful, Fulfilling Relationships.”
