Mega-Church pastor Bishop Eddie Long said Sunday he will fight allegations that he coerced young male church members into having sex with him. “I am not the man that has been portrayed on television,” he told his congregation. Speaking publicly about the accusations for the first time, Long did not address the specific allegations contained in four lawsuits filed against him earlier this week. “I’ve been accused, I’m under attack,” he said, lowering his head and softening his voice behind the pulpit at the New Birth Baptist Church in suburban Atlanta. In the suit, four men accused Long of using his spiritual authority to seduce them with cars, money, clothes, jewelry, international trips and access to celebrities. Source: CNN
