Audio: B.J. Bernstein, Eddie Long Spokesman Call Into Local Radio Morning Shows

New Birth Missionary Baptist Church continues to defend its embattled Pastor, Bishop Eddie Long, who stands accused of using his excessive influence over young men in his ministry by coercing them into providing him with sexual favors in return for cash and lavish gifts.

The plaintiffs, Anthony Flagg, 21, and Maurice Robinson, 20, of DeKalb County, filed lawsuits against Long and his ministry on Tuesday.

In an interview with Roland Martin on the Tom Joyner Morning Show this morning, the plaintiff’s attorney B.J. Bernstein laid out her shaky case against Long.

At one point she said Long urged the boys to text him photos of themselves fully clothed. “What’s wrong with that?, Martin responded.

She alleged that one of the plaintiffs approached Bishop Long last May for counseling after his friend died, “Instead, the bishop makes a move on him.”

Bernstein also said she would subpoena Long’s phone records, e-mail and travel itinerary to bolster her case.

In other words: she has no evidence to support her case other than the dubious statements of the boys — one of whom was charged with breaking into New birth Missionary church back in July.

Art Franklin, the head of public relations for New Birth Missionary Baptist Church called into the V-103 Frank and Wanda Morning show this morning to categorically deny the allegations against Long.

Franklin said the church found out about the allegations through the media. “We have not actually been served any copies of the lawsuits,” he told Frank Ski, who is a staunch supporter of Long and a longtime member of New Birth Missionary Baptist church.

Rumor has it that Franklin himself was caught up in a similar sex scandal when his wife divorced him, citing extramarital affairs — with other men.

Meanwhile, industry insiders are whispering that the allegations contained in the lawsuits are just the tip of the iceberg. “This is about to be Tiger Woods part 2,” said one source who is close to the New Birth camp.

The source said Long was often seen in the company of young boys who he wined and dined in fancy restaurants.

“These boys are older now and they are no longer getting money from the church,” said the source, indicating that more lawsuits will soon follow.

New Birth took down its website last night, most likely to scrub the website of pictures or other damaging info that might hurt their case.

    him & roland martin could pass for twins.

  • pointhimout

    double talking in the post sandra, but ok. when i heard he took down the website, my immediate thought was so they could clean it up. unless someone out here knows different, this bj chick doesn’t have a rep of taking bs cases and shaking down defendants.

    because the allegation in itself is so damaging, you can only hope there are no facts or evidence because that is going to tear atl apart. this is going to get ugly. no good will come out of this.

    @Choco, they story is that people do not want to believe this. The news went in on him last night though. They showed him doing a anti-gay marriage walk, but being accused of liking men and they went to his house, the church, tried to follow him. They are on the hunt, it’s crazy.

    #9 i hear you. the case is not to say he was wrong, they consented. the objective hear is the humiliate and bring down an alleged hypocrite. that’s it. costing this man his following, his church, his marriage will be worth it.

    i dont think it’s about ‘y come forward now.’ whenever “secret” relationships go on and finally end, someone is not going to willing to let go, and usually it’s the one without the power who loses control. in the end, the one with the power is fighting to maintain that power because the other party, who had no power initially, has nothing to lose and suddenly all the power. the two guys have nothing to lose. eddie long does.

    This is just crazy. They could be flat out lying or they were sexing Long and when he stopped tricking them out they got made exposed him. Either way, we will NEVER know the truth. Some are just soooo skeptical because a man of the cloth, especially a black one, would never go against the word of good….AND be gay.

    That’s what I’m feeling. These guys aren’t trying to hide the fact that they are gay and had some form of sexual contact with Mr. long- they’re basically stating that there was sexual contact they don’t deny that.

    -I’m just trying to figure out the real reason why they’re mad and decided to say something now? Is it because they found out about each other?? They were young when it started and are in there 20’s now and don’t deny accepting $$$, cars and trips over all this time. So what happened??

  • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

    OK, let’s just put it out there for what it is, because I believe the allegations – but I don’t believe that these MEN are “victims”.

    Fact: If you’re old enough to go on trips outside of the country, old enough to spend the money and accept the gifts, including but not limited to car payments (not to mention the fact that your a$$ IS old enough to get a drivers license), if you’re old enough to have sex with a man who asks you after the first time and got away without being killed, but you went back for the 20th and possible 42nd time… then you’re not a victim, you’re a hoe!

    They mentioned themselves that they enjoyed being lavished with gifts and being able to meet celebrities.

    I don’t believe for a minute that these dudes are smart enough to BE in college, but not smart enough to realize, “Heeey, wait a minute, I’m being molested!”

    They were doing what they WANTED to do and I’m not sure what precipitated this legal process, but it damn sure wasn’t because they were being “violated”.

    Does that excuse Eddie Long? No, he’s DEAD a$$ wrong, but these men were old enough to just say no – but they chose YES because they wanted the “rewards” that came with giving up young a$$ to an old man!

    @37 right. i think bj lawyer established consent from the start cuz she didn’t want to have her case spell BS. I think this is about bringing EL down.

  • KrayZKat

    Men of God, since the Biblical days, have always allowed their troublemakers to get them in hot doo doo, i.e. David, and man after God’s own heart, who saw Bathsheba, lusted after her, had sex with her and got her pregnant only to have her husband killed to cover up his sin.

    If the allegations of Bishop Long are true, then it will come to light. Whether the boys “consented or not” does not excuse Bishop for being messy. He was in a position of power and used it to his advantage. They were children even though they were at the age of consent when all this nonsense started. Bishop is an adult man and had major influence over them. JMO.

  • Destinee

    We should be praying about the sin in this situation not pointing fingers and given opinions, cuz our opinions don’t really count. Thank you Jesus that salvation is not based on our works. It is our faith that Jesus Christ died on the cross that saves us. It doesn’t mean that the desires of our flesh can’t get the best of us. I don’t know if this story is true or not, but I have my own sin to work out with fear and trembling to worry about someone else. I pray that IF this is true that he repents his sin and turns to Christ, cuz Christ is the only way to deliver himself from himself.

    The “age of consent” is just a number. And maybe these kids were vulnerable the the type of sexual predator that this guy seems to be.

    Maybe they were seduced because they felt they he was giving them the love and attention that weren’t getting at home.

    And if it’s true that he used the bible to support/justify this deviant behavior maybe they just wanted someone, anyone to make them feel that it was okay to be gay.

    As for why now, I don’t think it matters. It sometimes takes years victims to come forward. Maybe they were afraid of being called liars or being outed to the world.

    If what they are saying is true the only thing that matters is that it’s coming out now and this “alleged” hypocritical creep will get what he deserves.

    his excessive influence over young men in his ministry by coercing them into providing him with sexual favors in return for cash and lavish gifts.

  • KrayZKat

    @KsMommy – that’s how it sounds, but I think that because these boys were young and exposed to the “good life,” they got caught up in it. They were meeting celebs and had gifts lavished on them. I mean, there are adults who would give into such temptations.

    Haven’t you heard grown people say, “He/she could get it!” about a certain celeb they like or find attractive? The celeb probably could get it, and these are grown men/women who would probably have sex with a stranger they don’t know only because he is cute or has money.

    Again, if true, Bishop was in a position of power, and being a grown man, he could easily manipulate a child. That’s how I see it.

  • KrayZKat

    @Carrington – you made some extremely valid points. I’ve noticed the “don’t judge” phrase is huge among the blog community. Go figure. People judge others everyday, i.e. how they look, what they wear, or whatever. I’m not criticizing anyone directly, but that’s what goes on with blogs. If people didn’t have an opinion, people like Sandra would be out of business.

    There are few situations where things are simply black and white. For my own reasons I’m leaning towards the boys’ side but I agree that the days to come will be revealing a whole lot of gray area and quite a bit more ugliness will probably come out on both sides of this.

  • Candi Apple

    I wonder how people would feel if these boys were their young child/children being molested by a fat twirling pastor.

    Rumors have always surrounded this particular pastor. I don’t put anything past anyone. I will not condem the victim’s (young boys) regardless if they recieved gifts or not. Young minds are easily manipulated especially by influential people.

    If this man did commit acts of sex with the boys. I need him to be held accountable for his actions.

    I see your point and I agree, BUT, these “boys” were men when this started and I could see if they were molested and they ran… you can’t justify going back CONTINUALLY when you had a choice.

  • KsMommy

    When did the molestation start? I mean if it they were 16/17? I KNOW those MEN know it was wrong to have sex with the preacher. And in turn take gifts in return. Being young doesn’t make you stupid. At 17, I sure knew what the hell i was doing, and knew when I do all those oh so bad things, that it was wrong and there would be consequences. As an adult, now I see the maturer way of being. But to say I because I was young, I “had no idea what I was doing” would be a extreme. I don’t know…..just my opinion. I’m having a hard time see them as victims. This (seems) more like vengeance. But who am I but a lonely soul on the outside of the window looking in…

  • KrayZKat

    @Carrington – I could be wrong, but I don’t think they were men when this started. Even though they were at the “age of consent” according to GA, to me they were still children and very impressionable. He took advantage of their youth. Who knows? Manipulation is a very powerful thing. Check out these female teachers having sex with their students. Again, the teacher is in a position of power. Many of those young boys, even though they understand what sex is about, still might feel pressured by the adult.

    Again, I’m going to wait for more details, but at this juncture, this is how I understand it.

    exactly. i just think in the black community its not cool to be the leader of a gay church. he might have thought he wouldn’t have the wealth, notoriety or following.

    and would get the **side-eye** from a standard hetero church.

    Being young has alot to do with it. These boys looked up to that pastor as the rest of the congragation did. He is the GOD *Snickers* of his church. How many big hat wearing members would try to castrate them. Everyone says oh they knew but who knew better them or the pastor.

    Believe it or not, all young or 16 year olds are not fast and corrupt. Not stupid or unknowing but Nieve to an extent. Who know if this ball-erina assured them they were in a relationship and the gift were apart of the courtship. These statements are some of the same reasons why people are less likely to press charges. Especially men who have been raped and/or beaten (the backlash). Why didn’t my mother listen when I told her? Be a parent and listen to your children is what one would tell a mother but turn around and not listen to the voice of children. Regardless of the reasoning (gifts and such). If everyone manages to force these boys to keep quite this pastor will get away with more in the future. Thats right boys please place the gift giving out there now so it will be a dead issue by the time you reach court. Your lawyer understands the defense will try to use the gift giving as an excuse for the alleged sexual deviant behavior of this grown pastor man. You have your opinion and I have mine. I guess everyone has to pick sides why not pick a side of a molester and throw stones at the youth. That seems to be the trend of todays world. I digress

  • Destinee

    @Carrington…NEVER did I say you can’t give your opinion. Everyone has one, what I am saying is instead of HELPING to bring a person down we should pray for them. Christians are not perfect and we don’t select which part of the bible we decide to live out. We are human and we live in the flesh, we are pressing towards the mark of the higher call, which is Christ Jesus. I (personally) registered for this site because of the open conversation that I welcome without a problem. What I said was not an opinion it was truth. If you reject truth than you reject Christ. Easy as that! We all fall short of the glory of God. If we were perfect people there would have been no reason for Christ to come and give his life and raise from the dead, now would there. What I am saying is that it IS HIS sin that is his issue…didn’t I? Remember! Joshua 23:15 And it shall come to pass, that as all the good things are come upon you of which Jehovah your God spake unto you, so will Jehovah bring upon you all the evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which Jehovah your God hath given you.

    Just to give you a bible study lesson for the day: Romanns7:15-17 For that which I do I know not: for not what I would, that do I practise; but what I hate, that I do. But if what I would not, that I do, I consent unto the law that it is good. So now it is no more I that do it, but sin which dwelleth in me.

    Evil comes from within us. Sin doesn’t make you sin. The suggestion makes you sin. (Red light suggests you stop. It doesn’t make you stop). Because you know the outcome will be a ticket .Freedom doesn’t mean that you are free to do what you want to do. Freedom is doing what you should do. Restrictions help you to enjoy your freedom. Freedom comes with limitations. Freedom only can be maximizing with restrictions. Whenever you are trying to be in control that is when you are trying to be like God.

    We are not Christians because we got it together, we are Christians because we need God to help us with our sinful nature. I will be praying for you too!

    Personally, I haven’t been to any church that preaches hate against homosexuals. If they do, they are out of line and aren’t living according to the Word of God that states Christians are to love one another. However, there are many churches that do preach that homosexuality is wrong according to the scriptures. I don’t see that as hate if that’s what people mean by “hate.” They are just teaching the Bible the way they see it. Shoot, many of the choir directors in churches are gay (the church I used to attend had three gay men in the choir and all of them were choic directors) and the church looked the other way.

    Considering I’m from Philly just curious what everyone looked like, any who I found a ton of photos on Flicker under New Birth MBC’s photo stream and they are current too.

    QUESTION: Is this the same church Neffie went to crying on the show, and was so excited to meet the pastor cause he was like some sort of local celebrity?

    That’s what I was thinking. The word “New” And “Birth” doesn’t mean what it’s suppose to.. I’m glad I go to Old St. Joseph’s.(I really don’t think Old St. Joseph’s is a Church, just put it in for giggles).

    I’m interested in hearing what Bishop Long will say at the press conference.
    But why have a press conference, just release a statement and let your attorney handle the rest.

    SN New Birth Charlotte is that Bishop Long church too
    **I guess I can google it and see**

    I don’t think it’s fair to label him or any pastor that preaches against homosexuality in accordance to the Bible a homophobe cause that’s actually restricting and condemning them for freedom of religion. I’ve never heard a full sermon of his but unless he’s preaching violence or actual hate than he is not a homophobe… possible hypocrite, adulterer, and liar yes. to not preach what the Bible says on the matter would be even more wrong because then he’s twisting the bibles true intentions and words. It is possible to hate the sin but love the sinner
