Bishop Eddie Long Spirit & Truth Conference, Say What?
(ThyBlackMan.com) When I heard this week that Bishop Eddie Long was holding a “Spirit & Truth” Conference, I had to sit back in my chair for a second to think. As my eye brow wrinkled into my forehead, I asked myself, “what is there that’s truthful about Eddie Long on any level?”
We know that Eddie Long has been accused by several young men in his church so he could sleep with them.
We know that Bishop Eddie Long told his congregation that he would make sure the truth eventually came out about the allegations.
We know that Bishop Eddie Long was able to get s*x from the boys under the guise of being a surrogate father and role model, which led to him being respected by the community.
We know that Bishop Eddie Long was the first to march in the streets against homosexuality, but was sleeping with these very same men when his wife wasn’t looking.
What in the holy hell is truthful about that?
I stand in agreement with one of Eddie Long’s accusers, Centino Kemp, who expressed his outrage on Twitter about the audacity of Long to hold this kind of conference. Says Kemp:
“The Bahamas Christian Council needs to keep New Birth out of the Bahamas,” he said.
“How the hell that man feel that he can have a SPIRIT & TRUTH conference 2012 in THE BAHAMAS you really got f*cking balls.”
Kemp is right – does take a lot of f*cking balls to claim yourself to be a representative of spirit & truth when you actually represent the exact opposite. Not only should Bishop Long be ashamed, but anyone who considers attending such a conference should be equally embarrassed.
A so-called “spiritual leader” who brings innocent young boys under his wing so he can sleep with them cannot guide your spirit to heaven. Instead, following this kind of leader will only guide your spirit to the same hell in the afterlife that these boys experienced on earth.
Sometimes, this stuff is just ridiculous.
