According to the AJC reports:

Two DeKalb County men filed lawsuits Tuesday alleging Bishop Eddie Long, Pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, with more than 25,000 members., coerced them into having sex with him in exchange for lavish trips, cars and cash.

The plaintiffs, Anthony Flagg, 21, and Maurice Robinson, 20, began having inappropriate relations with Long at the age of 16, which is the legal age of consent in Georgia, said their attorney B.J. Bernstein.

Maurice Robinson's lawsuit specifically names Andrew Moman, Anthony Render, and April McLaughlin as employees of Long would often accompanied he and the plaintiff on the overnight trips. The lawsuit even alleges that a Chevy Malibu was purchased for Mr. Robinson to use by the church.

Anthony Flagg alleges in his lawsuit that he was told by Long to move to a home he chose, Golod House, which is owned by Andrew Moman and he was given a 2000 Mustang convertible to use, which was registered to Darius Wise, an elder in the church. Both men were allegedly placed on the church payroll.
"Defendant Long has a pattern and practice of singling out a select group of young male church members and using his authority as Bishop over them to ultimately bring them to a point of engaging in a sexual relationship," the suits allege.

The pastor’s attorney, Craig Gillen, adamantly denied the allegations.

Gillen also noted that Robinson was one of the men arrested in June 2010 in connection with a burglary at the church.

Police arrested Anthony Boyd, 19, of Decatur, and Maurice Robinson, 20, and charged them with burglary.

Atty B.J. Bernstein (Robinson's atty), stated Robinson committed the burglary in retaliation after learning that Long was involved with Anthony Flagg and other men.

In June 2010, Bishop Eddie Long stated he “forgives the men and hopes that they understand what they did is wrong. Long added that he is praying for them and that God is a God of mercy and compassion.”


My first question is "Where were the parents throughout these alleged affairs and trips????"

Second Question: "Why did both plantiffs wait 4 years to file this lawsuit?"

Some things about this story makes me wonder! I know victims usually take a while to come forward because of fear and this maybe the case, but I will reserve my judgement and let the court find the real truth!!! "If God is with us, who can be against us???"

I have always said: Isaiah 54:17 "No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me," declares the LORD.

What is done in the dark will come to light!!!
My prayers are with the families during these difficult times!
Peace, Luv, Happiness & Blessings,
