From a lawsuit filed by Spencer LeGrand, 22, who is the fourth young man to say he was coerced into having sex with Eddie Long, a prosperity preaching televangelist who is based in the Atlanta, Georgia area. The details of this suit are much longer than the previous three, all of which have been released over the past several days. (WSBTV.com)
Photos surfaced, too, of Long taking bodyshots of himself. They are said to have been sent by Long to an unspecified young man who turned the photos over to the lawyer representing the plaintiffs.
Eddie Long has preached repeatedly against homosexuality and even led a march involving thousands of people against gay marriages.
The men all say they became well-acquainted with Long when they were in their mid-teens. And after they passed 16 (the age of consent), they claim Bishop Long coerced and manipulated them into a "covenant" relationship where they were led into having sex. In return, he would provide them with cars, trips, access to celebrities, cash, jewelry, tutition, and housing. No criminal charges have been filed and Long and representatives of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church say the charges are not true. Two of the young men have been charged with robbing Long's office of very expensive jewelry and electronic devices.
