Bishop Eddie Long addressed his congregation yesterday citing he had “5 rocks” and hadn’t thrown one yet [CLICK HERE for transcript + video] but recent photos have surfaced of Long and a few young male members of his Longfellows organization that are quite suspect!
TheHipHopBlog revealed these photos recently and also reported that Long has a private love den at Atlantic Station:
Photos have surfaced of embattled pastor Bishop Eddie Long and some of his ‘Long Fellows’ members in Long’s private Atlanta office. HipHopBlog.com has obtained these exclusive images just as more questionable details have surfaced in the ongoing controversy surrounding the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church pastor.
HipHopBlog.com’s sources have revealed that there is a million dollar penthouse in the city’s midtown district that is allegedly owned by the famous mega-church reverend.
The source at the posh Twelve Atlantic Station cites several employees and residents that have noted that Long’s visitors at said location have predominantly been young men.
The photos may very well be innocent, but with 4 lawsuits pending citing “sexual coercion” between Long and young boys from his church, every photo on the net is going to be dissected.
What do you think about these recent photos?

Just days after a 4th lawsuit was filed, the Bishop stood before thousands of his supportive congregants Sunday, where he vowed to “vigorously” defend himself against the accusations of four young men who claim he coerced them into sex.
Long took the pulpit at precisely 9 a.m., dressed in a khaki-colored suit bearing the New Birth emblem. He emerged with his wife and held her hand for the next two to three minutes as the crowd stood clapping.
Long vaguely addressed the congregation and awaiting media while reading from his ipad.

A third man has filed a lawsuit against Bishop Eddie Long accusing him of sexual coercion. The suit, similar to two filed on Tuesday (Read a PDF of one of the earlier lawsuits), accuses Long of using his power to force the plaintiff into a sexual relationship.
The suits allege that in exchange for sexual favors. In the third lawsuit filed by Jamal Parris, it’s noted that Long placed Parris and the two other men on the church’s payroll, bought them cars and other gifts, and took them on lavish trips.
Parris, now 23, was a teenager at the time he joined Long’s church. The suit, which claims Long encouraged Parris to call him “Daddy,” also names the church and a youth academy as defendants. Continue Reading…
