[with link to Anthony Flagg's lawsuit against Bishop Long]

Bishop Eddie Long of the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga., is being sued by four male church members alleging sexual misconduct, among other things. The bishop has vowed to fight the accusations.

Is he being falsely accused? Possibly, but it sure doesn't look good when four persons are making the same, or very similar, allegations. It seems to be a case of the abuse of power — something Cardinal Theodore McCarrick was known for (see here and here).

Yes, Bishop Long is said to be quite wealthy, and that should be taken into account. Follow the money. But we also know that many clergymen, including the late Father Marcial Maciel, have lived scandalous double lives.

The truth, whatever that may be in this case and others like it, will eventually be known.

Below is a copy of one of the four complaints against Bishop Long.
