Last Sunday a woman walked up to embattled preacher Bishop Eddie Long during his sermon and handed him a stack of a thousand one dollar bills. Long seemed surprised as he hugged "baby girl" and said: "I see EVERYBODY moving like that!"
But according to Rhymeswithsnitch's Daily Long Report, the Bishop's own congregation seem to think the woman's generous gesture was a hoax.
Her approach seemed timed to coincide with him saying, "What I NEED..."
New Birth Missionary Baptist Church has seen a staggering decline in attendance since the news of his multimillion dollar settlement with former church members who claim they were coerced into providing Long with sexual favors.
In a screenshot taken from the video, the church pews near the back appear empty -- as do the church's upper tiers. Last Sunday, attendance at the church was at less than ½ capacity.
At this rate, New Birth will be forced to shut its doors in 6 months if attendance doesn't pick back up. Long needs a huge infusion of cash to replace the millions that he paid out to his accusers.
