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.

    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.

    #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.

    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??

    Carrington says:

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

Rape victims and victims of abuse keep quiet for so long, especially if the accuser is high profile, because 9 times out of 10, the victim will be labeled a liar or somehow blamed for what happened. I’m not saying that some people don’t lie about being abused, but if they really were abused, they shouldn’t be shamed when they do press charges.

    @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.

    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…

    @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.

    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.

    but let the truth be told. i think its a hidden and under-valued market. if the right person did it (became the leader of a nationally accepted gay church), they would truly be unstoppable.

    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

    @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!

    ajonesy, I’m with you on preaching love. That’s one of the reasons I stopped going to church. I’m a straight woman but I have a problem with sitting in a church full of straight sinners and only gay folks are being called out. It’s not right. You don’t choose to be gay and I choose not to voluntarily listen to someone spew hate.

    If YAH (JESUS) came down himself and told some of these unlearned christians that the Bishop did do this, they will hang Jesus back on the Cross and drive nails all in him all over again……it’s pointless to fight with foolish behavior, I dont know if he did do it or not….but again…folks follow man and not the savior…it’s sad though…..I pray for them all….

    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. Just saying.

    You must read Proverbs 6:16 it’s bad enough that YAH hates the Sin but there is somethings that he said is an abonimnation in his sight, so many “christians have been rock to sleep with the bible, it’s sad to me.. everyone want to preach about love and that’s it, that is why these people are no being converted cause they feeding them all wrong, telling them they alright when they are wrong, these preachers only make people feel good to the flesh, but your soul gonna be required and that flesh man will be gone, alot of people truly hate when i come and tell them they are wrong so I tell folks just dont ask me nothing you dont want to know the answer to.. they go to church more than me and carry they bible everyday and yet i know more than some of them everywould come to grips with..

    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 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
