Another Eddie Long Accuser Speaks Out

Another Bishop Eddie Long accuser has spoken out about the alleged sexual abuse at the hands of the embattled pastor.

“This is a hard time for the world and you know I have no hate for anyone, because God doesn’t produce hate,” Spencer LeGrande told ABC affiliate WSB-TV. “I pray for everyone, especially Bishop, ’cause he knows the truth, he knows the truth.”

LeGrande, 22, is one of four men who claim to have been abused by the bishop. Supposedly, they endured this abuse even while they enjoyed being lavished with gifts, cars and free trips by their alleged abuser.

It’s funny that they are making their claims now, instead of during the time when the alleged abuse was alleged to have occurred.

It’s also a coincidence that the lawsuits were filed just weeks after one of the men was arrested for breaking into the pastor’s private office at the church.

I see this case being tossed to the wind by a judge — not because the abuse didn’t occur (I don’t know whether it did or did not) — but because all of these opportunists were over the age of consent when they willingly participated in the sexual encounters in exchange for cash and goods for their services.

If Eddie Long abused his power in the church, or breached his fiduciary duty to coerce these grown men into having sex with him, then he’s wrong for that.

But their willingness to participate in the sexual activity was a personal choice that each of those young men made at the time. Now they want to sue Eddie Bishop for being morally bankrupt?

    I’ll be glad when it all comes out. I bet Eddie has been getting it in for a loooooong time. Everybody is speculating but bj bernstein knows exactly what she’s doing and I can only imagine what other kind of evidence she has…

  • MissGauzzz

    :blink: What I want to know is WHY these guys are doing interviews?!?! They have an attorney they need to walk light and play their positions. I cannot believe their attorney is on board with these interviews! I’m with you, Sandra… this case is gonna be tossed in the wind! :no: I will be very surprised if it’s not.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Money. The cash and other goods they no longer have access too. Maybe i’m a bit insensitive, but I have to agree with Sandra. What Bishop Long did is morally reprehensible, indeed. But I think the purpose of this trial to gain financial support and in the same breath humiliate the man they feel broke their heart. Just my opinion, though.

  • chase

    Wow…. How u doin Spencer…

    Such a sad case for all involved…

  • dlamonte

    Sandra i picked that up to on the last one who came out and spoke! if you look through his words he is basically saying why have us do all these and give us all these gifts then when we stop wanting to do it then the gifts stopped to! it may have been done to them at a young age but i dont feel sorry for them anymore because they was loving it! i do feel it was wrong for eddie long to just run out on them and he should be convicted to the things he did b4 they were 18! ALL AND ALL this is just a messy situation thats not going to be pretty in the end! PERIOD!

  • flyqtnva

    Im concerned about all the 14 year old boys that are in that church as we speak! Whose parents are so blinded, they cant see the truth yelling @ them!

    Just because you are at the “age of consent”- it does not mean you are fully mentally developed, and unable to be “coerced.” I see people in their middle ages of life who get “coerced” into doing silly sh*t everyday, but nobody speaks on it just because it’s their “children.”

    At 20, I was still doing simple sh*t that couldn’t NOBODY convince me was not right or not going to work out for me in the end. I had an “I know how to handle this” mindset, and I couldn’t “handle” a damn thing. So let this “age of consent” sh*t go. You’re still a dumb-f**k all the way up until about 22, (25 for most men). They were CHILDREN and it was MOLESTATION. Whether he bought them cars & houses, or cabbage patch kids & lucky charms after he stuck his penis in their jaws or not.

    No matter from how many angles you try to view something and be convinced that although it smells- sh*t doesn’t stink, the fact still remains that SOMEBODY tooted their ass up and defecated there. Eddie is the “sh*tter” here.

  • quixotic

    That’s what I was thinking Sandra, all of them were of consenting age when this allegedly took place so I can’t understand why they didn’t speak up then, these are not 8 or 9 yr old confused little boys they knew what they were doing at 14 who doesn’t know that it’s not appropriate to be touched in your private area by an adult especially one you refer to as your “father”. IMO it seems like when the gifts,trips & money stopped rolling in and Eddie lost interest, that’s when it became a problem.

    I wonder what the mothers of these young men have to say.

    he definitely has a “type”. But I do agree with Sandra’s take on this issue :shrug:

  • Cocoabana

    The bishop has selected some cuties @ King but I don’t know about this one!

    This man needs to step down and they need to drop their lawsuits. I’m sure they got enough money & gifts for their services over the years :coffee:

    What is the age for consensual sex in Atlanta? Can they even charge this man for statutory rape?

  • M_promp2

    I see what you’re saying Sandra, but he started seducing them while they were children. Kids are impressionable. He knew what he was doing and he was good at following the laws. He started his mess when they were minors believe that.

    Plus, he’s acting like he’s not gay and he is against homosexuality. C’mon, this guy is a walking contradiction and manipulative liar.

  • Divinebrown

    And the saga continues….

    Wouldnt that be some mess if EddieLongStroke hadnt done any of this?

  • flyqtnva

    I also like how in any other circumstance its fact that boys are always seven years behind in age EXCEPT in this situation! Its fact their brains develop slower and at 14 they are nowhere near as mentally developed as a 14 year old girl. I BET eddie is very aware of this!

  • Nhere

    These fellas seem real. You asked why would they wait til now? I’m quite sure there was a great deal of shame felt by these guys.

  • robin

    Sad situation all around. Is it possible that these young men are speaking out so that others feel confident coming forward and so that it doesn’t happen to guys that are much younger then they are. Will wait and see when all the facts actually come out. Weird never even heard of Eddie Long prior to this incident. Prob because I am from outside of the ATL area.

  • mswarrior1

    The truth of the matter is… the only illegal thing BEL did was (if) he used the money from the church to give gifts to these young men. Then rest is all (morally) wrong.
    There was no “molestation” in a legal sense because BEL made sure they were of “legal age” to start the sexual acts.

    I’m partly with Sandra on this one. I believe these boys knew they were being “gay for pay”, also caught feelings, then once the money train stopped rolling in and they found out they weren’t the only ones, they’re now out for the kill. Which is murdering BEL in the public eye, and morally lynching him. (Which should be done. What BEL did WAS wrong.) There’s no doubt the sexual relationship happened, but there’s nothing (legally) wrong.

  • http://twitter.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    @quixotic
    most sexual abuse victims dont speak up immediately after something happens especially men who have been abused by men. if he can convince thousands of people to be followers of his church surely he a slick enough talker to get a couple of impressionable fatherless boys to come and do some inappropriate things and not tell anyone. but its like u locked in a spell and it takes something drastic to get you out. same thing with a woman with an abusive husband or boyfriend instead of leaving first time they convince them to stay over and over again until it finally clicks in there head one day to get out of there.

  • ATL_Reese

    Laugh now, Cry later… When the real evidence come out, then we see how doing all the talking… BJ is no joke, and this is just the beginning.. Its funny how in denial some folks are, and how they so focused on the material aspect of this but not the FACT that these were minors who were abused by “man of god” who took full advantage of them…Its don’t have **** to do with the gifts.. You heard in the other interview the boys said its NOT ABOUT MONEY, they also stated that they TRIED TO RESOLVED THE ISSUE IN PRIVATE, but Bishop Eddie Long avoided them so now they just exposing the TRUTH, that’s what this lawsuit is about, EXPOSING the Monster Fake Bishop Long truly is, and preventing other young men’s lives from being ruined from this predator…Also BJ will not settle this case either.. I hope everything comes out in trial and the real evidence will show that truth..

  • shaybytheway

    To all of you who are not trying to hear them simply because their motive is obvious. I just want to know what is wrong with these young men putting the bishop on blast?

    If these young men had of just come out with their stories on a blog site or even a book, it would be labeled gossip and rumors. A few pr tricks and it would be a distant memory for everyone. And BEL would never be held responsible in the public eye as he should be.

    Doing it this way holds the bishop accountable for what he actually did. It’s not like they made things up to sue him over. Winning this court case will be a warning sign to all who even consider joining his flock.

    So what these men will gain from this whole ordeal. Thats a null issue. The big issue is that in a court in front of a jury of his peer, this snake will have to recount the horrible things he did in the name of God.

  • shaybytheway

    in short, paying off a couple scorned lovers to stop a major injustice to this man’s flock and vulnerable souls seems reasonable to me.

  • StillASassyOne

    This is going to turn out something akin to the Jim Jones situation with EL’s followers. Everybody’s talking about “you can’t coerce a grown ass man into…..” “They weren’t 8/9 years old…they should have known better….”

    Yeah…okay – Jim Jones had almost a thousand people so influenced and under his spell that he “coerced” grown ass men & women who “weren’t 8 & 9 years old and should’ve known better” to not only drink cyanide laced kool-aid,,but to feed it to their elderly parents, their kids, their spouses and themselves. Most of the “kool-aid” drinkers were past the “age of consent” and old enough to “know right from wrong” too, but they did it.

    But yet- some of ya’ll are SERIOUSLY trying to sit up here and argue that there is NO way that EL could’ve convinced these young boys to believe that it was “right” and “okay” and “expected” and “an expression of his spiritual love” for them to have sex with him?

    Call a few of Jim Jones followers up via Ouiji board and see if they think it’s highly possible…..

  • Ace

    The worse thing next Bishop long can do (besides admitting he tampered with these boys) is settle out of court.

    I need a few question answered

    Has Long straight out denied the allegation yet?

    What connection do these boys have with each other? same school? neighborhood friends? or just same church?

    What does Bishop Long being in incredible shape have to do with these allegations? i mean whats with the sudden outburst over his gym pictures?

  • shannon04

    @ATL_Reese ….I’m thinking the same thing. How many woman do we know that have old cell phones with history of text messages? Hundres of e-mails or explicit pictures?? When things are just peachy all people get careless and laid back not ever thinking that if things ever go wrong what type of things that other person have of you or on you. Its a mess but Im sure more stuff will come out about eddie long.

There is alot of shame in these acts being committed, thus the need to hold onto it until need be. Him getting that young boy charged might be what they needed, to finally realize the wrong in this and that he isn’t with them.How many women tear up their men’s clothing and he NEVER calls the cops! Him calling the cops was a sure sign that they are nothing to him, and that set off this chain of events.

    Hello All. StillASassyOne, good comparison, Jim Jones and Eddie Long. Shaybytheway, you make plenty of sense. And Sandra, you being a homosexual and all, perhaps you should feel just a little compassion for these young men? At a young age, were you not confused about your sexuality? Sounds like these men certainly are. I take my hat off to them for having the balls to blow Eddie Long out that pulpit and hopefully for good cause I sure as hell believe he’s as guilty as the devil.

    Now they are older, they found the courage to speak.

    Bishop Eddie Long IS the church. He got rid of his deacon board, the checks and balance of the church, years ago. He is a DICTATOR. They were probably too shocked and afriad to tell the man NO.

  • speakinmymind

    i believe there’s lies on both sides of this scandal…BEL and the young men. none of us will never know the REAL truth. and for me, someone who grew up in Decatur where BEL first started, this is waaaaaay bigger than ‘bringing the truth to light’. an entire community is being negatively affected by this mess and all the good he has done over the past 20-some odd years is being thrown by the wayside because of this scandal. that’s not to say the young men shouldn’t have spoken out but the way it’s being done makes them no better than he was for what he allegedly did to them.

    and people are quick to call mega church attendees ‘brainwashed’, when not all of them are. i’m not a member of a mega church (heck, i ain’t a member no where right now…i’m a bedside baptist!) but BEL didn’t hold a gun to nan person’s head and force them inside the doors of New Birth. PEOPLE make their own choices about attending that church…whether it’s for what they consider ‘bragging rights’, networking for jobs or dating prospects, etc. like i said before, this and every other church scandal that’s come about recently should be a wake-up call for folks to focus on building their relationship with God and not worshipping MAN cuz man will fail you everytime.

It is about time that people wake up and realize that predators are lurking all around in all forms. Like that comedian Kim said, wake up and think for yourselves. I mean really. The bottom line is that we need to stop putting belief in people and their titles and start seeing things for what they really are. We as a people can not afford any more setbacks. And to be honest, these guys’ parent/s were given hush money and I think that their parent/s aka pimps and the bishop need to punished. I mean really, what actions do you expect from young people when the people they look to to protect them is putting them in harms way. And you know what??? I am certain that if they had fathers actively around, eddie long and ppl like him would not be messing w them boys. There is a reason why he selected the way he did. Greedy, stupid mothers + absent fathers + relentless pedofile = disaster. Just saying.

    Coming forward sooner would have changed very few people’s mind! If they had came forward during the time he was abusing them, he would still have his supporters and they would still have people doubting and calling them opportunists!!!

  • jazi65

    It’s a sad case but I can’t help but question the timing too. If they are so disgusted with his actions why did they wait so long? If it’s not about money why the civil suit. Why not just head down to the local police station & press charges? Whether the accusations are true or not, everyone is gonna need some serious counseling.

    If it’s $$$ they’re after, they should’ve taken the Shannon Bellamy road.

If BEL gonna stand there and lie to his church and the world about who he is and profit from it then he opens the gate for someone dirtier than him to profit from it as well.

  • speakinmymind

    @ OTB
    i understand what you’re saying and i didn’t mean to come across as blaming the victims. tone can be misconstrued. speaking out is one thing, but the fact that they went to him privately first – which i took to mean that they wanted money – and when that fell flat, then they shopped this thing around to several attorneys…who wouldn’t touch it with a 10-foot pole. bj berenstain bear was the only one who would take it and if this is the way she “wins” cases, that doesn’t say much for her skills in the courtroom. a good attorney doesn’t need to sway public opinion – they do all their damage in the courtroom with facts and spot-on witness testimony.

    this kind of media blitz may have worked well and been appropriate for the Genarlow Wilson case because she was bringing to light a flawed law that unfairly imprisoned young men for consensual sex. but i have yet to hear her mention that the age of consent in GA should be changed. she didn’t even let the ink on the filings dry before she marched outta the courthouse and filed a press conference. believe you me, she didn’t have to say a word becuz the media was already on to the story before she even filed it. maybe i’m old-fashioned, but i have a great respect for interpretation and application of the law…and she’s just a smoke and mirrors act in my opinion.

  • kwall

    My whole thing about when and when not to come forward is…the yt boys who were done the same way in the Catholic church be old as HAIL when they come forward about shat that happened wayyyy back in the 50’s and 60’s. Some of the priests are DECEASED by the time they decide to speak up. I mean some of these now men had GRANDKIDS by the time they spoke up. And folks believed THEM…what the difference ill…. :shrug:

    most sexual abuse victims dont speak up immediately after something happens especially men who have been abused by men. if he can convince thousands of people to be followers of his church surely he a slick enough talker to get a couple of impressionable fatherless boys to come and do some inappropriate things and not tell anyone. but its like u locked in a spell and it takes something drastic to get you out. same thing with a woman with an abusive husband or boyfriend instead of leaving first time they convince them to stay over and over again until it finally clicks in there head one day to get out of there.

    He is a freakin pastor and with that job title comes responsibility, if his ass did it he needs to be taken down, if these Ninjas lied they need to be punished simple and plain.

    If your ass takes on a job you know the requirements and responsibilities if you can’t do it, then don’t take the job. I get tired people making excuses. If I become a cop and break the law you need to be punished worse because you made an oath to uphold it.

    I totally agree – Eddie Long hasn’t been absolved of responsibility (or accountability in my eyes), but these “boys” were MEN.

    If you knew enough to go home and try to ‘wash’ his scent off of you after he boinked you, then there was something bout him and the “acts” that disgusted you enough to resonate an “ill” emotion immediately following said acts… but not enough to convince your 20-something year old a$$ to stop accepting gifts in exchange for your dignity?

    Eddie Long is dead a$$ wrong for what he did, but let’s look at this for what it is. I was 8 years old and my mom and dad said, “do NOT get in the car with a stranger!” My mom and I were in the car and it broke down and my dad sent one of his employees to pick us up. I CRIED and beat my mama and that man’s A$$ when they were tryin to put me in that car because I didn’t know him (it didn’t register that my mom was WITH my dumb a$$) but I knew better at THAT age.

    I believe the boy in the grocery store “interview”, but he said some things that cause immediate alarms.

    a) “How could he just leave us like that?”
    b) “How could he just leave us like that?”
    c) “How could he just leave us like that?”

    OK, soooo clearly Long ended this “relationship” and, at 21, are you suggesting that if HE hadn’t ended it, you would still be in what you NOW suggest was an “inappropriate” sexual relationship?

    Just wondering…

    Hi SR family

    I am so saddened to hear how bad people talk about the men in question. How do we know that something wasn’t said back then but people didnt turn a blind eye to it?

    I told my family I was molested by my uncle when I was about 7 yrs old. My twin cousins who were 11 at the time said the same thing. No one believed us and I was fussed at for lying and made to recant. It didnt finally hit my mother until 7 years later that I was being truthful. My uncle was LIVING with us in our home and had offered to drive me to the mall after hearing me beg my mom and I said no thanks. My mom knew I loved going there and for me to say no something was wrong…She then kicked him out…but do you know what damage was done to me for 7 years???? And to have him in the same house as me…I pray for all those involved, especially the sick, perverted Eddie Long.

  • LaJuliet

    I am curious if “Official Oppresion” (a person of power leading someone to do something they would not otherwise do) might be a charge that might be considered in this case; considering that these young me looked up to this man…and yes I realize that this is a civil case. We hear stories all the time of grown people who were coerced into things all the time. (after all he has a congregation supporting him) My opinion is the Bishop(?) (i.e.predator)started grooming these young men as boys and when they no longer fit the image of the what he was attracted to he was done with them. Most false prophets are outed by thier own hand/actions!!

  • H-Townmama

    Thanks you guys. To this day when we have family events he comes around. He tries to hug me and Ive told everyone that if I see him staring at my daughters too long I will kill him on the spot. I endured years of therapy.

    But the point of me writing that was we DID tell. We knew it was wrong and nothing was done! What if one or more victims said something but people did them like me and said…oh you just imagined it or now why would he do that? This wasnt a major figure I had accused. I refuse to believe the red flags weren’t there, so much as maybe the parents were enjoying the perks as well and pimping out their sons. There has been rumors for years supposedly and the bishop and well as another was investigated in 2005 I believe. So why shouldnt we believe this happened? He is sick because he deliberately chose these men and worked on them for years. He did everything legally, by waiting until they were of age and it looks like no penetration, just oral sex. But he is wrong all the same.

    While I dont agree with some of the stuff Man and Carrington said, after all they are men and dont have the natural compassion women have and have probably never been in a position where they felt vulnerable or had a need so bad they would do whatever it took to fill that need! I dont expect most men will understand how that could happen.

    Part of the transcript from the interview….

    Jamal says that what the bishop wanted was sex. He said it began after he became of age, and he said it was constant.

    “His house. The hotels. His condos. In the church,” Parris said. “In the church, before and after service.”

    “Did you receive those pictures?” FOX 5?s Dale Russell asked Parris.

    “I received those pictures,” Parris said.

    “Did he ask for pictures like that from you?” Russell asked Parris.

    “Yeah,” Parris replied.

    Parris says the bishop exchanged pictures as he coached them on building up their bodies, and improving their physical appearance for him.

    “The pictures speak for themselves,” said Parris. “A man in his underwear talking. Sending pictures from a bathroom, and it ain’t to his wife. It’s to us. They speak for themselves. You be the judge of that.”

    Parris claims in his lawsuit the jewelry, the cash, the gifts, the trips in the bishop’s private plane came at times from church coffers, and that top church officials knew what was going on.

    “Was some of the money that was spent on you and the others church money?” Russell asked.

    “Yeah, absolutely,” Parris replied.

    “No doubt about it?” Russell said.

    *****************CONFESSION**********************************
    At the tender age of 29, I too was sexually molested by an older female coworker. She used her posistion of authority and lavish of gifts of fountain pens, white out tape, neon yellow highlighters and other exotic office materials to woo me.

    She requested that I call her “Big Mamma” and to do everything that she tells me to do, which I happily obliged to keep living in the “Office Depot” lifestyle that I had become accustomed. Should I ever fail to meet her request, I was spanked mercilessly.

    Sadly, when the new 22 yr old intern started, I was tossed aside like yesterday’s thrash. Left to manage my own office supplies. I don’t love the things Big Momma did to me, but I still love Big Momma.

    My $100 million dollar civil suit is my only recourse!

    OPINIONS VARY

    BUT THERE IS ONE COMMON OPINION THAT’S DOMINANT

    NOBODY IS EXCUSING OR CONDONING THE BISHOP AT ALL AND MOST OF YOU WHO ARE SO EMOTIONALLY CHARGE ARE FAILING TO REALIZE THAT-JUST ALL JUICED UP ON YOUR HOLY/SELF-RIGHTEOUS TRAIN

    JUST BECAUSE SOME POSTERS INCLUDING MYSELF AGREE WITH SANDRA ROSE’S PERCEPTION OF THE MEN INVOLVED IN THIS CASE-THAT THEY WERE IN FACT OF CONSENTING AGE WHEN THEY ENGAGED IN THE ALLEGED SEXUAL ACTS AND IN EXCHANGED ACCEPTED MONEY/GIFTS THAT THEY ARE CONSIDERED WILLING PARTICIPANTS VS VICTIMS

    EMOTIONS ARE RUNNING HIGH ON THIS SITUATION BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY-

    L———E———G———A——–L—–L——Y , EDDIE SLEEPING WITH THESE YOUNG MEN WAS NOT ILLEGAL-POINT BLACK

    M——–0———R——-A——L—–L——-Y, YES IF HE’S GUILTY HE IS CORRUPT, A HYPOCRITE, ADULTERY, SHOULD STEP DOWN ETC.

    IF YOU CAN’T SEPARATE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO-THEN YOU ARE UNABLE TO SEPARATE EMOTIONS FROM THE FACTS

    SORRY BUT IT IS WHAT IT IS-THESE MEN ARE PARTIALLY TO BLAME FOR WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM BECAUSE THEY WILLFULLY CONSENTED, PARTICIPATED, AND BENEFITED FINANCIALLY

    THIS WOULD BE THE SAME AS A 17 YEAR OLD RUNAWAY GIRL SUING HER PIMP, FOR ABUSE, STD’S, FINANCIAL LOSS-ETC. WHEN YOU OFFER YOUR BODY IN EXCHANGE FOR MONEY/GIFTS YOU RUN THE RISK OF BEING ABUSED/MISTREATED LIKE THE OBJECT YOU PRESENTED YOURSELF AS

  • Phrozen1der

    I do think at least SOME of these grown azz niggas was just “in love” wit Eddie and are now “scorned lovers.” Maybe not the cats that was 14-15 when he started but that nigga that was 20…. He’s a di©ksucker and wasn’t a dayum thing “molested” bout that nigga.

    But NO, that nigga Eddie ain’t right in anyway, shape or form.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Is this REALLY the "crux" of the problem? Because of his position? What if these 20 year old men were having sex with a 50 year old JANITOR at New Birth? Would they THEN be just grown a$$ men making an adult decision?

    What if this were a 21 year old WOMAN and she stayed Christian Louboutin'd up, Gucci bags and Louis Vuitton boots, pushin a Rover and her hair was constantly on point, would she be considered a victim, or a GOLD DIGGER? At what point do you have to accept responsiblity for your actions? When you're underage and don't know better, you're a victim, when you're of age and you SHOULD know better (and do, because if you didn't know better, you wouldn't have been hiding it until he quit your a$$) you bear just as much responsibility.

    At 15, he was your molestor… at 21, he was your man!

    That's my story and I'm stickin to it.

    The fact that they were ADULTS in the "crux" of the matter for ME (I can't speak for everyone else) – I was molested, but I can damn well tell you that at 21 I wouldn't have been STILL been having sex with no man who was abusing me.

    I don't recall absolving Long of his responsibility here – but the fact that these were MEN who were having sex with this man and they were WILLINGLY accepting gifts in exchange for that sex should ALSO play a role in the "judgement" process I would think.

    If they were 13 year old boys and they were doing this in exchange for X-Box's, then I agree – let's make this about Eddie Long, but at 21, you're a grown ass man and I can't (and won't) get past that!

  • http://www.amazon.com/gotta-make-Heaven-going-thru/product-reviews/1448656729/ref=sr_1_1_cm_cr_acr_t iscream

    This man made these kids feel special and then used the bible to work for him. He told them this is what God wanted (“you bet not never tell nobody but God” <- sorry couldn't help myself).

    When everyday men and women are scorned most of them aren't in secret relationships. Like I said yesterday if this is just about a scorn lover let Eddie come out and say that. But he's not because he's a liar and he knows what he did was WRONG!

    And since he used money to lure them in to get what he wanted. Yes let them sue his slick talking ass for more money. He tried to bye their secrecy so pay up you bald headed liar.

    Probably not. But does that excuse the accusations of Bishop engaging in an inappropriate behavior when those young men were 15/16/17? Is it ok for Bishop to march against homosexuality yet engaging (allegedly) in the very same acts in which he denounced? Is it so far fetched that Bishop did do these things? Or because he is a man of God, he could never do such evil & despicable things? Just askin’…

    I’m biased because I’m a sexual abuse VICTOR. My daughter waited 4 years before she disclosed her virginity was taken from her at 12 years old. She’s 19 and still in therapy trying to get over the hurt & pain. This very thing is why people don’t tell. They are embarrassed. They feel as if no one will believe them.

    NOW IF THE STORY WAS A 14, 15, OR 16 YR OLD POPPED A CAP IN HIS BEHIND FOR TRYING TO PROPOSTION THEM I WOULD FIND THAT MORE BELIEVABLE

    THEY NEED TO TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THEIR ROLES THEY PLAYED IN THEIR SO CALLED ABUSE

    I don’t really CARE what’s next. I’ve “Over-articulated” for those who seem to keep going back to the fact that EL was wrong, while making the grown men who f*cked him WILLINGLY, “victims”.

    THEY made this an issue, not Eddie Long, so whatever happens with EL, then shame on him for being stupid – but neither you, nor the “victims” can make me see this any other way than the way I see it and let me “over” articulate it once more for good measure:

    If you’re a man old enough to be a senior in college, you’re old enough to know right from wrong; any decisions you make after the age of 18, you need to deal with on a personal level.

    If a 13 year old can be held accountable for his acts after he’s committed a crime, then for DAMN sure a 21 year old man has to hold some accountability for HIS actions.

    Does that mean that I don’t think Long was wrong? NO! (I’ve said this several times) he’s dead ass wrong; but these boys accepted what they got as long as they were getting rewarded for it, so they gets no sympathy and you can’t change my opinion on that.

    A legal opinion…..

    They are claiming that they suffered emotional distress because of Long.

    To win in court, they’d have to first convince a jury that they actually did suffer emotional distress, which would likely mean a battle of psychological experts testifying for each side, said Jessica Gabel, an assistant professor of law at Georgia State University.

    “In a case like this you’re going to need expert testimony,” she said. “Those guys cost a lot of money.”

    Then, they’d have to prove that Long was responsible for the emotional pain.

    “The critical thing that you have to prove is causation — what caused their emotional distress,” Gabel said. “It’s especially hard to prove causation.”

    Long can move for summary judgment, meaning he can ask a judge to dismiss the case before a jury sees it, arguing that there simply is no viable evidence that the plaintiffs were harmed.

    But that wouldn’t happen until after months of a process called “discovery,” where the plaintiffs reveal their evidence. And a judge’s summary judgment decision can always be appealed, meaning more time for the case to linger in public view and more legal fees.

    suppose we all agree with you. these boys were men who made grown up decisions.

    what’s the point of over articulating that fact?

    what if we accept that these are lover’s scorned and lookin for a pay day? how does that change anything about the proceeding to air out this man’s dirty laundry?

    Maybe they are waiting on a bigger payday. Might want a spread in playgirl. They looking at Tigers Tramps and watching them get paid and want the same offers. LOL.

    Carrington says:

    If you’re a man old enough to be a senior in college, you’re old enough to know right from wrong; any decisions you make after the age of 18, you need to deal with on a personal level.

    If a 13 year old can be held accountable for his acts after he’s committed a crime, then for DAMN sure a 21 year old man has to hold some accountability for HIS actions.

    Does that mean that I don’t think Long was wrong? NO! (I’ve said this several times) he’s dead ass wrong; but these boys accepted what they got as long as they were getting rewarded for it, so they gets no sympathy and you can’t change my opinion on that.
