Why is Bishop Eddie Long Holding a “Spirit & Truth” Conference?
by Dr. Boyce Watkins
When I heard this week that Bishop Eddie Long was holding a “Spirit & Truth” Conference, I had to sit back in my chair for a second to think. As my eye brow wrinkled into my forehead, I asked myself, “what is there that’s truthful about Eddie Long on any level?”
We know that Long has been accused by several young men in his church so he could sleep with them.
We know that Long told his congregation that he would make sure the truth eventually came out about the allegations.
We know that later on, Long never revealed the truth and instead settled the case behind closed doors, using millions of dollars in church money.
We know that Long was able to get s*x from the boys under the guise of being a surrogate father and role model, which led to him being respected by the community.
We know that Long was the first to march in the streets against homosexuality, but was sleeping with these very same men when his wife wasn’t looking.
What in the holy h**l is truthful about that?
I stand in agreement with one of Long’s accusers, Centino Kemp, who expressed his outrage on Twitter about the audacity of Long to hold this kind of conference. Says Kemp:
“The Bahamas Christian Council needs to keep New Birth out of the Bahamas,” he said.
“How the h**l that man feel that he can have a SPIRIT & TRUTH conference 2012 in THE BAHAMAS you really got f*cking b***s.”
Kemp is right – does take a lot of f*cking b***s to claim yourself to be a representative of spirit & truth when you actually represent the exact opposite. Not only should Bishop Long be ashamed, but anyone who considers attending such a conference should be equally embarrassed. A so-called “spiritual leader” who brings innocent young boys under his wing so he can sleep with them cannot guide your spirit to heaven. Instead, following this kind of leader will only guide your spirit to the same h**l in the afterlife that these boys experienced on earth.
Sometimes, this stuff is just ridiculous.
