On Eddie, you had to know somethings was up. Permed hair, muscle shirts?

When people learn to accept people for who they are it would be a much easier transition for people to walk in there TRUTH.. God is exposeing everyone and there mess and he is starting with the Church first.. Its no surprise to me as this is happening all over the USA in many Churches.. Atlanta is Notorious for DL men expecially within the Black community.. When you live in A city with the Largest African American Gay population this is to be expected. I always knew Eddie Long was one of the Gurls lol.. Especially with his LA fitness tight body Shirts and his Accessories lol... But im am praying for him as I believe he is still a great man of God and he preaches a great word... I dont know hw true this maybe but if you look at the Trend with all the Pastors that have been exposed 9 times out of ten its usually true.. So far its just allegations

Just no more hypocrites. To the preachers and legislators stop preaching and legislating against the very thing you're alleged to be engaging in. It seems those that are loudest against such acts always turn out to be those that are engaging in that activity. Not saying that Eddie is guilty, but these are pretty strong allegations and seem to be out of left field. I could have seen him being charged with embezzling church funds before this, but hopefully the truth will come out one day.

Most preachers, preist, pastors do this. Does that mean that they are all somehow gay?

The other things you mentioned have always seemed to me to be very over the top. I dont understand how a "man of god" needs so much worldly crap. Any preacher that bilks their followers to the point of driving a Rolls Royce and having a private jet is a charlatan in my opinion.

I have never watched him but have seen a few pics of him over the years. Oddly this description seems to fit my memory of him so you must be spot on.
