(blackmediaSCOOP) As the mainstream media stays focused ONLY on the New York Congressman who showed his “Wiener” to several women as he wife gets ready to have his baby, blackmediascoop continues to follow the sex scandal that has rocked a black mega church pastor who for years had raised hell against homosexuality. The latest twist to the story is that Bishop Eddie Long’s wife has allegedly left the building because of the drama. The internet was on fire with the allegation and now Bishop Long’s folks have responded.
Let’s catch you up on the scoop before we get to their statement. After being fired by Ford for financial irregularities, Eddie Long moved to Atlanta to study theology and became the pastor of a small Jonesboro, GA church. In 1987 he became the pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, which at the time had around 300 members. Under Long, membership grew to 25,000.
