Jesus, Take the Wheel (from Pastor) + Frank Ski Voices Support

I’ll start this post off my quoting my man 50, “I joked and said If I was a porn star my name would be bishop eddie long. Then I woke up this morning and saw a bishop with the same name.”

Bishop Eddie L. Long

You know it’s ugly when CNN covers it, but yesterday, 57-year-old minister, Pastor Eddie Long, known for his public crusades against homosexuality, faces serious allegations. On Tuesday, two young men who were members of Long’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Church filed lawsuits claiming he used his position as their spiritual counselor to coerce them into sexual relationships.

More after the jump.

“We categorically deny the allegations,” Art Franklin, Long’s spokesman, said in a written statement. “It is very unfortunate that someone has taken this course of action.”

On Monday, before this story broke, the pastor tweeted, “Whatever prayer does not change overnight, it will change over time! Have a great day!” (<==is this a regular spiritual tweet or i know some ish is about to go down tweet?…)

Update: In a statement read on a syndicated radio show Thursday, pastor Eddie Long denied he had coerced young church members into sex, as alleged in three lawsuits filed against him. “I have been through storms and my faith has always sustained me,” read by attorney Craig Gillen on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show.” “I am anxious to respond directly to these false allegations, and I will do so. However, my lawyers counseled patience at this time.”

Popular radio personality, Frank Ski, also provided his support for Long: “It’s difficult for me because Bishop Long and I are very close. I’m one of these people who’s really old school. When you’re a friend and I support you, I support you. Right now it’s allegations.”-Frank Ski

Stay tuned.
