Eddie Long Enjoyed Sexual Touching, Oral Sex, And Introducing Anthony Flagg + Maurice Robinson to Celebs

As Atlanta Pastor Eddie Long quickly makes Pastor Tom Brock look eligible for sainthood, new details emerge in a lawsuit against the mega-church scamster. Like how Long (who denies all these accusations, btw) allegedly started molesting his two parishioners at age 16. And how there are emails and pictures to prove things! Update: A third lawsuit, from Jamal Paris, was just filed against Long.

Bitchslapped with a sexual molestation suit by Anthony Flagg (now 21) and Maurice Murray Robinson (now 20), Long’s alleged tactics for luring underage boys are uncovered. Taking notes, NAMBLA? According to the lawsuit and the victims’ counsel B.J. Bernstein:

• Long went after Robinson started at age 15, even putting him on the church payroll.

• Among the fabulous destinations Long visited with the boys in tow: New York City, Auckland (for Robinson’s 18th birthday in 2008! where they allegedly had oral sex!) and Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean islands. Though Flagg and Robinson went on trips separately, they often flew on Long’s private jet and stayed in his hotel bed.

• Long bought Flagg a Ford Mustang as a gift. Long drives a Bentley himself. HE IS A PASTOR!

• There were also cash gifts, clothes, jewelry and “access to celebrities.”

• There are emails, texts, and photos exchanged between Long and his victims, says their attorney. I’m sure there are also flight itineraries?

• Long would check into hotels under the name “Dick Tracy,” making sex jokes too easy for a blog like ours.

• Much of the sexual contact took place at Long’s “guest house” on his own property.

• Long was a fan of “sexual touching.” So far there are reports of Long going as far as oral sex, but nothing involving the butt.

But fear not, Long! You’ve got America’s most famous gay sex scandalized couple (that’s still together, sorry McGreeveys) taking your side. “I think he’s heartbroken, I think he’s confused,” Ted Haggard tells Inside Edition. “I’ll tell you how I felt, I felt like I’d ruined my life.” Adds superwife Gayle: “Eddie Long has been a great man…He has done wonderful things. I hope they hold onto that knowledge as they try to understand what these allegations are about, if they are indeed true.” Translation: Don’t forget about how he lined his pockets with millions of dollars from a charity that was supposed to help the needy!

Worth noting: In Georgia, the age of consent is 16, and Flagg and Robinson are not alleging sexual activity took place until they were 17 or 18, meaning any sexual activity was, technically, “legal.” Their lawsuit claims, however, Long abused his “spiritual authority” to force the then-minors to have sex with him.

And let’s not forget: Flagg and Robinson aren’t being shy about their lawsuit. While they have yet to speak publicly about the allegations, their attorney is making the media rounds. I would be surprised if Bernstein’s office wasn’t in contact with Long and his representatives about the allegations, perhaps to negotiate a settlement ahead of time, which is easier for everybody (lower legal costs! less public attention!). Then again, if Flagg and Robinson are truly seeking revenge, and assuming their allegations are true, then dragging Long’s name into the press with such allegations is the ultimate payback.

Did Atlanta’s Anti-Gay Pastor Eddie Long Take These 2 Men On Overnight Trips To Masturbate, Massage, and Blow?

      That Ted Haggard is even somewhat revelant in the far right anti-Gay community is such a telling sign of what delusional physcopaths these people are. They are so absorbed in their hatred of all things Gay that they allow themselves to be decieved time and time again. Stand up and spew anti-Gay rhetoric and these lemming like lunatics can’t whip out their checkbooks fast enough to send donations to “assist the cause”.

      Pastor Eddie Longs (for cock) is certainly not the first charlatan to scam these mental midgets. How many of their religious “leaders” have been exposed as complete and utter frauds???? Yet they continue to fund their lavish lifestyles time and time again…………

      If their rants didn’t do so much actual harm to the Gay community it would almost be comical…………

      If Michael Jackon’s fans didn’t believe him I doubt the followers of this bishop will believe it.

      @edgyguy1426: You brought up an interesting point here. I am a huge Michael Jackson fan, and I believed Michael in both allegations against him. The evidence has been proven that the father setup the child against Michael because Michael’s eccentricities, love (not kinky) for children and his appearance.

      The second case now, was more opportunistic, considering that the mother was a known liar who loved file lawsuits against people. Chris Tucker has warned Michael, the mother tried to scam him for money and told Michael, he should try to get rid of them. When Michael did tell the mother and boy its time to move on and stop leeching off me, they took it the wrong way and filed the lawsuit against him.

      The difference between Michael Jackson and Long is that, Michael’s accusers either settled out of court or wanted money, which I believe just proves everything there about the allegations. Long’s accusers don’t seem to be looking for money, they were already getting that, they just want to prove how much of hypocrite he is. A self hate gay hypocrite.

      Y’know, it’s not just that it’s another potential hypocrite dragged back down to earth. Christians have to start actually reading the Bible, as opposed to making others do it for them. Christ was the original socialist hippie. Christ as depicted would have gone apeshit on a preacher owning an expensive car while families went hungry every night.

      @Enron:

      The Jackson case was always interesting because of the disconnect between popular perceptions of Jackson and what was actually alleged and who was making the allegations. It reminds me of the continued cultural misperceptions about the Columbine killers; very little of what was initially reported about Harris and Klebold was accurate. I was never persuaded in either direction about Jackson – I would never let my son near him, but I certainly never would have convicted him based on the given evidence.

      His followers will claim that it is a conspiracy. The fact that he filed a claim after a robbery that said over $100,000 of jewlery was missing from his office shows that this is no man of god interested in godly things. He is a typical scam artist getting rich off of a group of foolish people. Just another, dishonest self hating asshole who needs to be locked up.

      How long is it going to take stupid congregants and America at large to begin to see the pattern that it is closeted homosexual preachers who preach against homosexuality? It is an easy sermon; more than 90% of the congregation can sit smugly because they are heterosexuals, but what is the point of preaching about it? If you are straight, you aren’t going to turn gay. When will people realize that the hate these closet cases are preaching is being delivered to themselves because they cannot do anything about their being gay and they know first hand that all of that bull crap they peddle about how getting saved can cure you of being gay is really a steaming pile? I have no sympathy for these cowardly merchants of hate and I use the word merchants because it is a big business. Even if this Bozo is innocent, a preacher driving a $350,000 Bentley is not making a priority of caring for human beings. If his congregation is proud that their preacher drives a car like that, they have very warped values which is another strike against this man.

      No. 4 · Gus wrote, “Long will lose his current position, go into hiding, find Jesus again. All will be forgiven.”

      He won’t even have to go into hiding – just rehab (if the allegations are true). The sex scandal might turn into a case of “he said, he said,” with nobody being able to tell who’s lying at the level of certainty you’d want in court.

      Unless there are some digital signatures proving that email was not altered, you’d have to find the original on Long’s computer for anything he sent. If Long’s guilty but smart, he’s replacing his disk and destroying the original (which he’ll claim was replaced due to a failure).

      It’s hard to say – we’d all laugh at another homophobic preacher caught with his pants down, but a homophobic preacher is also an ideal target for some young guys who don’t have any sexual hangups, nor scruples. We’ll just have to wait and see.

      He’s bullet proof. His congregation will get over the “shock” quickly, and turn on the media or any group for having the audacity to meddle in the affairs of the church. Many believe he’s the next MLK with a purpose greater than any shortcoming, be it true or false.

      I live in Atlanta and both me and partner work with members of his congregation and people who know people in his congregation. Without fail, they all say “oh he’s guilty”.

      I have never heard of him before today.

      No. 8 · Tom wrote, “How long is it going to take stupid congregants and America at large to begin to see the pattern that it is closeted homosexual preachers who preach against homosexuality?”

      If all preachers (in some sects) preach against homosexuality, then of course you’ll find closeted gay preachers doing that too, but they are the ones you’ll read about in the news because a hypocrite caught with his pants down makes a good story. You need to correct for that to reach a valid conclusion.

      BTW, http://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/09/22/georgia.pastor.abuse/index.html?hpt=T2 mentions that some of the people accusing Long have credibility issues do to criminal arrests. Long may try to pass it off as a shakedown racket (an initial claim, it seems, but we’ll see what they finally settle on).

      When I think about the undeserved privilege that straight, churchy homophobes claim for themselves and consider the lengths they are willing to go to to pursue their bigotry, including twisting the meaning and intent of their credulous “beliefs”, I’m forced to consider whether they just exist to be exploited somehow by someone. It’s the perfect mindset to absolve yourself of any personal responsibility for losing track of your integrity. Oh, why can’t being “normal and god fearing” be as rewarding as it used to be?” they scream. And the insightful and ever cynical leaders take their money and trust and run. There is a book all about this syndrome, and a man’s supposedly constructive reaction to it. It’s called the bible. Strange days.

I know it doesn’t suit your emotional needs, but it’s the truth and you realize it at some level. Though it’s much easier to vent towards lgbt people who happen to be white.
