SHOCK: Vegas Pastor Billy Eckstine McCurdy Charged With Molesting 2 Teen Boys

Eddie Long is leading the welcome party: Las Vegas pastor Billy Eckstine McCurdy, 57, was indicted on six counts of sexual assault and five counts of open or gross lewdness for allegedly molesting two teen boys at his home. The Revival Temple Church of God in Christ leader coerced the boys into sexual relationships by using his church authority and Biblical readers, the victims told a grand jury. (Snaps to both of them for having the courage to come forward.) The allegations come five years after McCurdy was accused by a boy of sexually molesting him in bed; no charges were ever brought. But there could be more to come: On youth trips to Arizona and California, McCurdy was surrounded by young boys and held sleepovers at his home with them; some lived with him for extended periods, including the two victims. McCurdy is free on $3,000 bond.
