    There have been allegations that he sexually harassed teenage boys.

    That`s not being gay. That`s being a pervert.

    Hmmm, Someone other than a catholic priest sexually harrassing teenage boys, I guess it just shows one more time, Clergy is often a coverup for people who are sick (Not saying sick because of possible homosexuality, but sick for preying on children)

    Yes, drworm, but gay is not the issue. The title should read that Bishop Eddie Long is a Pedophile.

    Innocent until proven guilty. I guess. The media don`t see it that way. Gossip can destroy an innocent party. But still..... I guess I have no judgement until the trial is over... but still.

    I think the issue is that he`s a hypocrite... making millions hating gays and off of oppression, while now it turns out he`s been in the closet himself.

    I mean, have you seen these pics of him? Pretty. drating. Gay.

    Well, he hates gays and such, maybe it is just a cry for help that he hates himself... and about innocent until proven guilty... Sigh, I am not a court of law or a member of a judeo christian cult (Yes, including babtists and methodists) So, I feel I have a right to judge, right or wrong, that is my perrogative and on my own conscience. And well, I say this guy is a sick bastard,

    No, he`s not a pervert. Or a pedophile.

    He`s a pastor.

    If the jury in his trial returns a guilty verdict, only then is he a pervert and a pedophile.

    I don`t know much about Eddie Long, Except he`s yet to have a trial. He`s denied the charges and under our legal system he`s considered innocent until proven guilty. So, We`ll see what happens.

    One thing though, I hate how the press tries to convict people in the court of public opinion with little or no real evidence.

    Remember the Duke Lacrosse case ? They were found innocent despite all the slandering that went on during the TV news.

    "If the jury in his trial returns a guilty verdict, only then is he a pervert and a pedophile."

    Being found guilty or not guilty of an accusation does not change who you are. He either is now a pervert and a pedophile, or he is not. Getting a guilty verdict will mean we can call him a pervert and pedophile, but it doesn`t make him one.

    The age of consent in Georgia is 16, and all the men who filed suits against him are over that age. So no, he`s not a paedophile.

    What he may well be is a hypocrite. Luckily all he needs to do is follow Ted Haggard`s example and become "completely heterosexual" again through the healing power of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and his congregation will lap it up.

    "There have been allegations that he sexually harassed teenage boys. That`s not being gay."

    Sex by a man with men is being gay, no matter what the maturity level of the males involved are.

    He is homosexual, or at the very least, bisexual.

    Call a spade a spade please. No pun intended?

    CrakrJak - that is possibly the first intelligent thing you have ever posted that I have agreed with.

    These young men are not moral pillars of the community - they are ex-junkies/criminals that have their own problems.

    This is a simple case of "he said/he said" - the young men are being bolstered by a "psychologist" that "believes" they are telling the truth.

    This smacks too much of the witch-hunt convictions of the 80`s and 90`s in California of daycare/preschool owners that were put on trial for this very thing, because of the "psychologists" saying the kids will tell the truth.

    I`m not saying Eddie Long isn`t guilty, or that he isn`t a slimeball - but let`s get some more evidence then just the court of opinion (both the press and the "experts.").

    So...turns out he sent these to at least one of the guys. They were over the legal age so doesn`t hold much in the eyes of the court (or shouldn`t.) I don`t know if they were really molested but he is definitely gay...and in case you didn`t know, cause I didn`t until I just did the research, he has held marches against gay marriage and other anti-gay rallies. Why does this keep happening? It makes you wonder how many politicians/religious figures use the stance to hide in plain sight.

    " It makes you wonder how many politicians/religious figures use the stance to hide in plain sight."

    The best place to keep from getting shot is to duck under the barrel of the gun itself. Of course when the guys I hang out with refer to each other as "family" these extreme, self-hating closet cases are never welcome.

    They know what they do is hurtful, ignorant, selfish, and holds back progression of acceptance by furthering the teaching of ignorant and hateful behavior. They can wallow in their own guilt and pine themselves to death in a puddle of their own shame for all I care.

    Suffer!

    holy poo look at all the cash siting in the room NICE! and BTW good luck with god as your law consulting agent!
    such advice as :
    "If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her."Deuteronomy 22:28-29 I bet the court will be OK with it.

    -----------
    No he`s not. He`s not being charged with anything. Being gay isn`t against the law. He is however being sued by men who claimed he sexually assaulted them when they were "teenagers". I suspect he`ll pay them off to make the suit go away. He will continue to deny that he likes to diddle teenage boys and his flock will abandon him. He is guilty.

    First of all, Madest, what he`s being accused of IS against the law. He`s not just being accused of being gay- he`s being accused of sexual assault (which you oddly pointed out in your own post) Even so, the point is that just because someone accuses someone of something doesn`t make it true. As much as I`d like to believe these accusations are true, as soon as you start basing what you believe on your own personal biases, you toss out reason and leave yourself open to believe anything that happens to sound legit, regardless of evidence. You have to consider the possibility that the accuser is lying- it happens all the time. Especially in a case like this when they have something to gain financially from it.

    Guys get accused of date rape all the time- sometimes the accuser is lying. It happens. If this happened to you, would you want people going around declaring you guilty without a shred of evidence simply because they don`t like you?

    @sbeelz,
    He`s as guilty as the day is long. A straight man would have no reason to pose for a self pic, in spandex, before a mirror in his bathroom and then text that picture to another guy. A guy he was lavishing gifts on. This isn`t bias, this isn`t accusatory, these are facts. The spandex pictures came from the victims. GUILTY! Next?

    Eddie Long is nothing like Roy Cohn. Roy Cohn was a man who kept his homosexuality a secret during an era where coming out would have cost him his career, his friends, and most likely his family. If the accusations against Eddie Long are true, he`s a man who has used his status as a preacher to force himself on other men. A rapist. There`s no comparison.

    Well when you have 100,000 people attending on Sunday (like some of them do) it would be awfully counter productive to hold service in a shed.
