Eddie Long Crowned As King

Bishop Eddie Long returned to the pulpit on Sunday in royal fashion. For his Jan. 29th service at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, where he took a leave of absence late last year in the wake of child molestation allegations, Bishop Long featured a Rabbi, Ralph Messer, who spoke at length about why Long is a “king.” Presenting what he claimed were 300-year-old sacred scrolls discovered some 70 years ago outside a concentration camp in Germany, Messer pronounced Eddie Long as king in “God’s government.” To illustrate the point, Long’s aides lift him in his chair, which doubles as a throne, and carry him around the stage.
