(blackmediaSCOOP) I don’t know what to say folks, this story continues to unravel in the wrong direction. Just weeks after Atlanta mega church pastor Bishop Eddie Long settled his sex settlement with 4 young men for millions, he is tight for cash and his friends in the pulpit are coming to his defense (not financially that we know of at this hour).
Before Sunday service ended, Long begged church members to give MORE money…he wants $500-$1000 donations to use as “seed money” to open satellite churches in Birmingham & Denver. Now church members and leaders are leaving one by one. However as some former members have found out, there is one pimp in another pulpit who is not leaving his friend.
In a sermon found on YouTube, Creflo Dollar, another Atlanta mega church pastor minimizes the Eddie Long’s sex settlement and demands that former church members return and support Long’s ministry.
