Eddie Long: Booty Bandits And Predators Exit The Pulpit!

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

(ThyBlackMan.com) The title of my article seems both rough and judgmental. But by now those of you who read my articles know that I can factually back up what I say. I am in Atlanta not too far from New Birth Missionary Baptist Church where “Bishop” Eddie Long set up a program for boys without fathers then sexually molested as many as he could get his hands on. Many of you may remember the scandal from news media reports a while back. then it suddenly went away because the victims were paid a lot of money (reportedly millions of dollars) by the church’s insurance company.

New Birth Missionary Baptist Church was both responsible and negligent because the top people knew what was going on. that in part is why Rev. Bernice King jumped ship when the Eddie long scandal hit the fan. Much of what I am telling you now is from insider contact sources and very reliable so if you disagree, too bad. While I usually do not write such hard articles against an individual, our people need to stop sugarcoating booty bandits and pulpit predators, especially when doing so protects criminal predator pedophiles who say they represent God. We need homosexual, bisexual and any other type booty bandits out of the pulpit. Their lifestyles are contrary to the teachings of the Word of God.

Men and women who proclaim themselves as leaders of the church and say they speak for God should be held to the highest stands – and being human is no excuse for blatant, intentional sin. They put themselves out there, they often exalt themselves and they say they know the Word of God so well. I remember when they wrapped Eddie Long in a Jewish scroll, lifted him on their shoulders and carried him around in the sanctuary like he was a “god”. It was not just a demonstration, it was an exaltation of a false minister.

See the false minister and all his gullible followers for yourself below.


Wake up people. We do not set the standard for evaluating those who inhabit the pulpit, God does – and often they exalt themselves. If you think I am judging, read your Bible to find that God has already provided both tests and judgments regarding fake ministers, false prophets and false teachers who come in His name. But they slip by and slither into the pulpit because the people who say they know God’s word won’t hold these charlatans accountable. People stop being so gullible and wake up.

I Corinthians 5:9-13 says not to even associate with people who are sexually immoral. And if they are in the church, we are to expel them (kick them out), not just pray for them or ignore their behavior.

I simply say what the Bible says. It is sad that so many of our people could not spot a false minister if their lives depended on it – and their spiritual lives might. It’s sad that so many of our people refuse to believe the truth yet make excuses for those who are clearly guilty of deliberate sins that impact so many lives. Stop making excuses for the pulpit pimps, “profits”, predators and booty bandits who take advantage of young boys, vulnerable women and clueless congregations. Don’t protect them.

Christ called out those who were not of God and the Apostles did the same (Matthew 23:15, 23:24). But all most of you want to do is say “pray for him and don’t judge”. Church follow all the examples Christ set for correction, rebuke and exposing false ministers, not just the soft ones. Today church where is your backbone? You can’t rebuke the world because you won’t even correct those crooked leaders within the walls of the sanctuary. Stop falling into the ditch with the blind who are leading you off a cliff.

I have no sympathy for Eddie Long and I am relieved for his wife who wanted to leave him anyway after he molested all those young African American boys. He went right back in the pulpit, spoke for 30 minutes and never said he did not do it. The Bible says a Bishop must be blameless and Eddie long of New Birth Missionary Baptist church did not qualify. A Bishop must be the husband of one wife and over several years Eddie Long had various wives. But God has taken care of all of that and woe unto you who stood with, protected, promoted or respected Eddie Long.

They are saying Eddie Long had cancer but don’t believe that. His lifestyle caught up with him and he likely had AIDS, not the cancer they are using as a cover up. I would not be surprised if someone over there did not leak the truth this year. Long’s wife likely knows the truth. But it is also likely that she was threatened or paid off to stay with him and keep quiet. Remember she wanted to leave then suddenly cancelled her plans.

Eddie Long Victims:




Eddie Long was a pretender and a predator who misled God’s people and played with God himself. His lifestyle was contrary to what he said he believed and appeared to promote. Spiritual pride, ego and materialism along with his nature as a predator prove that he was no man of God. Yet a ton of clueless people listened to him, followed him and promoted him – even after the pedophile scandal. And because of his clout in Dekalb County, Long was never prosecuted criminally. But connections to keep you out of trouble do not mean you are innocent. People you don’t pay out millions of dollars when you are innocent. And all those ministers who protected Eddie long like Pastor Woodrow Walker, Bishop Jakes and Pastor Creflo Dollar, you protected the synagogue of Satan, not God’s anointed.

I have copies of 3 of the lawsuits filed by the victims of Eddie Long. Furthermore, over a decade ago I counseled one of his victims before the scandal even came to light. I would give you the details if I could, believe me. But counseling content is confidential and the young man was not a minor by the time he spoke with me. Yet the victim I speak of was in addition to those who filed civil complaints against Eddie Long and there were others who kept quiet. When did Christ and the Apostles keep quiet like that?

To all of those who continued to follow booty bandit Eddie Long, excused him or supported him, you are as dumb as a rock. He never admitted what he did and you can’t repent if you don’t admit the sin. He was a false minister and not a man of God. Long said he was healed and that was not true either. Stop making excuses for those who mislead you. Stop drinking the Kool-Aid. stop following men instead of thinking for yourself, studying for yourself and trying the spirits to see if they are of God (I John 4:1).

If you challenge this article – good. If you disagree with this article, at least you read it and hopefully you are now awake more than you were before. Don’t be a zombie. If you support pulpit pimps and refuse to correct or rebuke them, you are no better than they are. If you just want to stick your head in the sand, you are likely one of their first and easiest victims. Wake up!

Never let any man or belief system cause you to turn off your brain. While it is certainly OK to support great causes, good pastors and sound doctrine, you have to spot and expose the fakes just as well. and we all must make a clear distinction between the errors of imperfect men vs the deliberate sinful lifestyles, deception, snakes, pulpit pimps and charlatans in our midst. The Bible tells us to do just that and how to do it. So study for yourself, do your homework and keep your eyes open.

    i knew he had aids he lied to so many people and hurt so many people

  2. Joshua says:

    Hey Concerned Christian,

    Walker could have found out the facts instead of ignoring them so he could support his friend. you spend a lot of time defending Walker and not much time talking about accountability, correction and exposing excuses.

  3. Marque Anthony says:


    People are trying to tell you the facts, but like Walker, you make excuses and stick your head in the sand. Walker protecting his friend the pedophile has been confirmed out off the mouths of two or three witnesses. Read your Bible. you just want to believe what you want to believe because Walker is your friend just like he did the same with long.

    Failure to find out the facts is intentional denial so one can refuse to comment. failure to correct is not what Christ taught. John the Baptist, Christ and all the Apostles found out the facts and corrected and rebuked.

    Why do you think Walker is exempt from such accountability as a church leader? read your bible. you say you are a concerned “christian” then why aren’t you concerned about the truth and ALL the ways the Bible says handle matters such as this?

    It would do no good to answer your email and follow the course of action you recommend because of a number of reasons. First Walker does not like to be corrected, which is why he keeps teaching the tithe in error and in disguise by saying “we go beyond the tithe’. secondly, you have made up your mind regardless of the facts so be persuaded in your own mind as the bible says. third, many people know that Woodrow walker did protect his friend the pedophile predator so speaking to him would serve no purpose. Fourth of all, if he did admit it, you would look stupid and I think you look that way already.

    YOU cannot say what Walker did nt say unless you were with him every minute of every day. you makes excuses for him and the members of the body of Christ need to STOP making excuses for failing to hold our leaders accountable. you think everybody else is wrong and you are right. STOP EXALTING WALKER and exalt the truth.

    Your problem is that you are biased because you like Walker. I don’t dislike him, but I hold to the truth, not just to a friend whom I respect. Your bias is clouding your spiritual vision and I bet you would not correct Walker if you heard it out off his mouth when he was standing right next to you. he is not a bad man but he protected is friend the predator at a time when people needed to know how to regard the matter. he did not confront. He made excuses. he backed people off of legitimate questions, concerns and the tests of scripture. WAKE UP! All you can say is what you heard him say or not, just as others have here.

  4. Harold Davis Jr says:

    To Concerned Christian,

    I also know about Walker covering up for Eddie Long. You are biased and just cannot accept the truth. I was a member of Walker’s church for 7 years. Like the other guy said, YOU are the one who cannot say Walker did not protect Long because you were not with Walker 100% of the time every single day.

    I saw and heard Walker myself at the Sam’s Warehouse in DeKalb County. You are in denial because you think everybody else is wrong and you are right. Nott true. I suggest you be more real with yourself and stop protecting what Walker said. Yes he protected his friend the pedophile and certainly did not find out all the facts. nor did Walker apply the scriptures such as I Cor 5:9-13 and others.

    Maybe it is YOU who do not know Walker as well as you think. But even if you do, you were not with him every single day and all day. So you are not privy to every single statement he made. your attempt to walk in denial is exactly what people at long’s church did and you need to learn to confront the truth, not just what you want to believe. Francine knows what her husband said.


  5. A Concerned Christian says:

    To Marque Anthony and the Author of this article:

    Since you think you have your facts straight and claim to know Pastor Woodrow Walker personally and have heard him protect or cover Bishop Long (which is 100% not true), I know because I am closer to Pastor Walker than you both know. Come see about me, not to fight but to talk.

    Like I stated earlier, he neither supported nor criticized Bishop Long during the situation because they were allegations. He has known Bishop Long for years, but they weren’t “buddies.” He was never even able to get a chance to discuss this case with Bishop Long although he wanted to (trust me, I know).

    Instead of continuing to tear down the kingdom of God and spread rumors and lies about those who actually are contributing to the Body of Christ and actually living what they preach, let’s get coffee/tea and discuss this in person.

    You can email me at nakedize@gmail.com so that we can come up with a date and time and this invitation is extended to anyone who has something negative to say about Pastor Woodrow Walker.

    Eddie Long’s Marriage Life – No Way Godly

    Dabara Houston filed divorce in 1985.
    She stated he beat her while she was 7 1/2 months pregnant with his fists and had a violent temper. they were married only 4 years then Dabara fled.

    Vanessa Long, his last wife, also filed for divorce but later cancelled it suddenly. It is believed that she was either coerced, threatened or paid off to cancel the divorce petition. Watch her videos. She was afraid. She filed on a Thursday, changed her mind the next day then changed her mind again. Those are signs of being pressured.

    If any reasonable person is accused of sexually molesting a child, the first thing an innocent person does is say “I did not do it”.
    But not Eddie Long.

    If you are innocent, you definitely do not pay out millions of dollars to settle something that will even appear to show guilt. You fight it, you sue the accusers and you stand firm on god’s Word. but not Eddie long. The Bible says abstain from the appearance of evil and when you look guilty, you are not following the Bible. so the weak excuse Long gave about why he settled out of court does not fly. Nice try predator.

    And Long said he contemplated suicide. What man of God contemplates suicide when you have a wife and kids, you have God, you are a pastor and leader over 25,000 members and you say you are innocent? And the church or church insurance company is going to pay your victims off for you? Why think of suicide – if you were innocent? A guilty man would be more likely to contemplate suicide.

  7. Marque Anthony says:

    To Mhine,

    Christ said he would build His church and the gates of Hell would not prevail against it. Christ church is standing strong but many of these churches you see are NOT his church. You can tell by who is promoted, by who is left out, by whether or not they prioritize taking care of the poor, the homeless, the fatherless etc.

    Remember the wheat and the tares have grown up together and god warns us of another gospel 9a fake one like what long, Dollar and others teach, false prophets, false ministers and doctrines of demons.

    Very few of the churches you see today are the church that Christ set up. the rese are counterfeits with snakes and wolves in the pulpit. and members often don’t have a clue to what I just said.

  8. mhine says:

    I’m troubled and outraged that what this man has been accused of, blatant sexual abuse in God’s House doesn’t have parishioners at New Birth up in arms. The Body of Christ is under attack. Eddie Long was a mere man. Take him off of the freaking chair! He’s not a King. Remember, we worship a jealous God who will have no other idols before him.
    What Eddie Long did was calculated, narcissistic and turned God’s house into a sexual playground!
    How is New Birth not outraged that this mere mortal man who didn’t die for you, didn’t wake you up this morning and didn’t send His only son for the remission of your sins to allow this to continue?
    How is New Birth not enraged that this disgusting, evil man had the audacity to hurt our babies…our young men that are already marginalized, already under attack? Stop worshipping this man. This mere mortal man. He isn’t a king, he’s a predator and if New Birth knew and allowed this culture of abuse, be clear, you’re just as culpable.
    The church should be a place of refuge for those who are heavy burdened. As a woman who loves the Lord and has personally experienced this exact type of abuse and had a blind eye turned towards it, we need to have zero tolerance for blatant sexual abuse in the church. If you don’t stop worshipping Eddie Long and start worshipping the precious name of Jesus, the Body of Christ will continue to be under attack and so will the African American community.

  9. John Harris says:

    1 Corinthians 5:9-13New International Version (NIV)

    9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— 10 not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. 11 But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister[a] but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.

    12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? 13 God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.”[b]

  10. Marque Anthony says:

    To Concerned Christian
    You need to stop assuming that the facts have not been checked.
    You need to stop assuming that somebody was referencing his son.
    You need to stop assuming that just because you did not hear Walker protect Long it did not happen.
    You assume the author of this article and others had not spoken with Walker or heard him protect Eddie Long.
    What you call being careful is just excuses not to speak the whole truth because of the bias Walker had in being friends with predator Eddie Long. But the evidence was there. Did Walker try to look at it or stick his head in the sand? Stop making excuses for church leaders not speaking against sin when its inconvenient.

    All of your assumptions are just that and smell of bias towards protecting Walker instead of looking at the facts. You are doing exactly what Walker did regarding Long. I have not heard you make one comment about the depravity of Eddie Long. If you are going to speak the truth, don’t pick and choose based on who you like and respect because God is not a respecter of persons.

  11. Marque Anthony says:

    Romans 1:26-28

    26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error. 28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.

    Hebrews 13:4

    4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

    Jude 1:5-7

    5 Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. 7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.

    I Timothy 1:8-11

    8 We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. 9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.

    Mark 10:6-9

    6 “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ 7 ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, 8 and the two will become one flesh. ‘So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

    I Corinthians 6:9-11 and 17:20

    9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
    17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit. 18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies

    Leviticus 18:22

    22 “ ‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
    Leviticus 20:13
    13 “ ‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

  12. Marque Anthony says:

    To Concerned Christian

    Woodrow Walker did the same thing the members of New Birth did. He did not address the issue in light of rebuke and correction as the Bible says do. He looked the other way. He leaned toward Eddie Long because of personal like and bias instead of leaning towards the facts and the truth and the evidence. He did not do what clearly the Apostles and Christ did – confront the evil.

  13. Marque Anthony says:

    To Concerned Christian,

    Just because you did not hear Woodrow Walker protect Eddie Long from the pulpit, that does not mean he did not do it. You are wrong and in fact Walker did protect and defend Long. That was his buddie and he had a lot of respect for Long, partly because of the size of New Birth.

    When the scandal arose Walker did not speak of correcting those who are in the pulpit. When asked about it by members one on one, Walker avoided it in some cases. or he discouraged others from looking at this in light of scriptures that address the issues. Walker’s passive approach in fact does not correct or expose so it inadvertently condones.

    YOU may not know that Walker did these things but other people do know. So unless you were with him every minute of every day, you cannot say what he did not do or say. Nice try.

  14. Marque Anthony says:

    I know Walker personally and he both protected and defended Eddie Long, his “buddie”,at Abundant Life church when the scandal first hit. he did not speak honestly about the matter and told several people not to “judge” Eddie Long. butt walker was told that it is God who judges and that God had already judged such behavior. just like Walker continues to teach the lie of New Covenant paying tithes after it was clearly explained to him (and a few of his elders) that he was in error, Walker professes what he wants – not what the scriptures teach. If you think different, you need to study your Bible more. Ask Walker for yourself

  15. Marque Anthony says:

    To Hyppo Crit

    First, these victims were under age so it was child abuse and sexual abuse and contributing to the dilenquency of a minor. Long is lucky there were no criminal charges. You don’t know what you are talking about.

    Second, equal or not, homosexual is wrong. and using a position to be a predator finding your prey and seducing them is wrong too. Clearly all of that is ungodly on many levels.

    Thirdly, I suggest you study your Bible better because it is god who classifies and categorizes sin, not man. Maybe you have a problem with how His word did it. But too bad.

    fourth of all, I suggest you read the article below this one entitled LGBT: Busting Hell Wide Open. It has the scriptures that address homosexuality and sexual perversion.

    All your comments have done is successfully pointed out that predator Eddie long was guilty of a lot of things surrounding his victims.

  16. A Concerned Christian says:

    QUESTION: When and where did you see Pastor Woodrow Walker protect Bishop Eddie Long? Where are you getting your “facts” from before you started “calling out” pastors?

    Yes, I do believe that we as the church should be accountable to each other especially when our brethren are being deceived or taken advantage of, but be careful not to shoot friendly fire in your careless rage.

    To answer the question that I asked you, Pastor Woodrow Walker has never “protected” Bishop Eddie Long. As a fellow minister, he has been careful and discerning enough to neither criticize nor supporte him due to the lack of knowing all of the facts surrounding the case.

    Also, you might be referring to his son giving a brief exhortation on his pulpit, that whole situation was not planned. There were a group of youth from New Birth who Bishop’s son brought to visit the church and Pastor Walker called them up for prayer because he thought they were a group of teens that his church brought in from an outreach initiative. Then Bishop’s son asked if he could pray over the youth at Pastor Walker’s church and it turned into an exhortation.

    When it’s all said and done, before putting out false information about ministers, make sure that you check the facts and check your own heart to make sure that you are discerning and have a truly righteous intention before spewing words of judgment. May God be your judge. Grace and peace to you, brother.

  17. Hippo Crite says:

    The Church’s mistake is equating homosexual activity between consenting adults with child sexual abuse. The two things are not equal. Eddie Long’s actions would’ve been no less scandalous had he been targeting underage girls. He used his power and influence as a church leader to abuse children for his own sexual gain. THAT is the part that’s sinful and wrong. If you can’t see that, there’s something wrong with your character.

    When you lump all “sexual sin” together, you enable predators like Long to prey upon the most vulnerable members of the congregation–the ones who are least likely to tell. A sin is a sin, right?

    Wrong. It’s up to the Black church to stand up and make a clear distinction between child abuse and all other forms of sexual expression.

  18. @R

    FIRST I didn’t say accept OBAMA over JESUS, I used the word chose, meaning ‘CHOICE’ also meaning choosing immorality over morality.

    THE CHRISTIANS believe a bible that say’s HOMOSEXUALITY is a sin, and if you read the article the author quote’s a verse from 1 CORINTHIANS.

    MY point was if you know that GOD has told you not to associate with people with deviate sexual behavior , than how can you then vote for someone who promotes it.

    SECOND I do not accept your premise that CHRISTIANITY is the religion of my oppressor,if you do a little research you’ll find black people knew JESUS long before we wound up in the cotton fields of ALABAMA.

  19. Marque Anthony says:

    A word to the wise to Creflo Dollar and his doctrine of prosperity. Seems like the only one over there getting filthy rich is DOLLAR. While he flies around in a 63 million dollar jet, his members struggle to pay bills (some of them) and have to request loans from the church.

    The Bible says judgment will begin at the house of god so pimp preachers and pastor deceivers watch out. And as for TD Jakes whom promotes that you come to his conferences to get free, maybe he should read the verse that says who the son sets free is free indeed.

    People Christ can and has freed you and you don’t have to wait for a TD Jakes book, conference or tape. Woe unto those who play with, deceive and mislead God’s people. You are to be feeding the sheep, not fleecing the flock. And if you don’t correct yourself, God will do it for you and you will not like the way He does it.

    For all of you who say I am judging, judge that.

  20. R says:

    To Robert Jordan lemme get this straight black Christians accept Obama over Jesus???? Thus they have no moral authority? You accept the religion of your oppressors and you’re throwing stones? That is one of the more idiotic things i think i have ever read.

  21. Marque Anthony says:

    Click link below to hear the attorney who represented Eddie long’s victims.

  22. Marque Anthony says:

    To Robert
    First we are brown, not black. Check your colors.
    Second, don’t shift the issue from the topic of the article
    Third, whether “black” Christians are hypocritical or not, that does not change the word of God nor the facts about predator Eddie Long
    Fourth, do you know what a straw man argument is? The article is not about Obama.
    Fifth, there are a lot of things Obama made better and I have a list of them.
    What Robert have you done to improve anything

  23. BLACK CHRISTIANS are facing some serious issues after 8 years of OBAMA because almost every black CHRISTIAN I know was completely in love with this man and believed he could walk on water, the problem is OBAMA is completely immoral and unchristian, he openly promoted same sex marriage and used the power of his office to force transgender people into the bathrooms of our mothers and daughters.

    THE black CHRISTIANS today can never condemn homosexuality without being the biggest hypocrites in the world today, OBAMA has cost the black CHRISTIAN the moral authority to judge or make any decrees or proclamations in GOD’S name.

    THE black CHRISTIAN didn’t read his bible carefully because it clearly stated that ‘no man can serve two masters’ the black CHRISTIAN was given a choice between JESUS and OBAMA and they chose OBAMA and now they have to live with what that means!
