|Jamal Parris, Bishop Eddie Long's Alleged Victim, Speaks (video)
September 29, 2010
Jamal Parris, 23, spoke on camera about the alleged sex crimes committed against him by Atlanta-area Bishop Eddie Long.
ABC News reports that a journalist from a Fox News affiliate confronted Parris outside of a Colorado grocery store, and heard from the alleged victim these shocking words:
"I cannot get his voice out of my head. I cannot forget the smell of his cologne...I'm not able to take enough showers to wipe the smell of him off of my body."
Parris is one of four young men who have filed suit against the megachurch Bishop, who is outspokenly anti-homosexual and known for preaching abstinence. The first lawsuits were filed last week, alleging that Bishop Long used money, cars, and travel to entice or coerce the men into sex. The alleged victims were 17 or 18 years old at the time of the abuse.
Parris's lawsuit alleges that Long "used Holy Scripture to justify and support the sexual activity."
Long adamantly denies the accusations against him.
