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.
