When news of Bishop Eddie Long’s 5th accuser hit the streets last week (click HERE if you missed it), I couldn’t help but wonder how members of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church felt about the new scandalous developments.
Fox-5 was on it again, catching church members as they left bible study last Wednesday evening, and well… it appears they’re all still drinking Long’s Kool-aid…
“Bishop Long is a man of god,” said one supporter. “People are trying to tear him down in all kinds of ways. I don’t believe the first one, and I don’t believe him now.”
When asked if she heard about the fifth accuser, the woman replied, “Yes. I think that’s just a scam to bring him down. He’s bringing the word out so strong right now. They (are) just trying to bring him down.”
One male parishioner said the accusations don’t matter to him at all:
“That doesn’t matter to me. I know who he is and it’s just talk. He’s a good spiritual dad. So that’s all I can say.”
Watch video of Long’s supportive parishioners speaking on his behalf…

5 accusers and counting. I wonder how many more will be revealed…
Remember when Creflo Dollar sent New Birth Members packing, talmbout Long just had and “accident”? Well how many more ‘hit & runs’ do we have to discover before Long steps down (or at least fesses up)?
What do you think about New Birth Members undying support of their “Bishop”?
