A teary-eyed Eddie Long then admitted during the service that he once considered taking his own life when he was going through that Gay sex scandal a few years back, but he thanked his church and it’s faithful followers for standing by him.
When I was being condemned from the four corners of the earth, I had a moment… I had a moment where I wanted to kill myself. And I was ready.
What kept me was not a scripture. What kept me, was that every time I showed up here, you were here.

Bishop Eddie Long
is no longer a “commoner” in fact, according to the congregation at his New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, Long is now KING!
Crefelo Dollar tried to tell y’all LONG had insurance, well it looks like his policy is finally paying off.
Now I could go on and on about how Long took advantage of those 4 young men who sued him for sexual coercion and the fact that Long decided to settle out of court
with the Church’s money for reportedly $24.8 million dollars and a “private” apology after a 5th accuser came forward with even more damaging information about his conduct….
I could further rant about how 2 of the FIVE young men chose to tell their compelling story to news reporters because they are so traumatized about the situation and are STILL seeking closure.
Or maybe I could mention how
Bishop KING Eddie Long felt the young men revealed too much about their “relationship” with him so he sought to get his HUSH money back.
I could mention all of that but it still wouldn’t matter…. because Long is “covered in scripture” and he’s KING of his flock!

As if we didn’t see this one coming! Bishop Eddie Long wants his settlement money back from at least 3 of the 5 men he paid to keep their mouths closed about those sexual coercion charges.
Two accusers, Jamal Parris & Spencer LaGrande spoke up on Channel 2 news last month, stating that they just wanted closure from the Bishop in the form of an acknowledgement.
Centino Kemp, the 5th accuser, was able to quietly get in on a piece of the “hush money” action in late May, but was outed by I-Team news reporters as they dug deeper into the case.
Attorneys for New Birth Missionary Baptist church have now informed Parris, LeGrande and Kemp that they intend to recover nearly $1 million from their financial settlement.
