Eddie Long Talks


At a prayer breakfast in Atlanta Thursday, Bishop Eddie Long talked to the media, but not about the four young men who are accusing him of sexual impropriety.

Long, senior pastor of the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, is a vocal opponent of marriage equality, and his church believes in gay "conversion." Four former members of his church are currently suing Long, saying he abused his power and coerced them into sexual situations.

The Thursday breakfast was in honor of the upcoming Trumpet Awards, which recognize African-American achievement (Long is not being honored).

"It's a wonderful celebration of a time when our nation needs hope, when people need to see people who rise up and are doing great things and actually making a difference in someone's life," Long said at the breakfast.
