  1. Why, I NEVER ... ok, there was the time with the choir boy behind the altar ... ok, yeah, there was also the 27 times with the altar boy in my room ... would $1 million make this go away? Son, how long IS that line of boys behind you?

  3. The victims in this case should make the decision best for them. I think if it were me, I'd want to take it to court because this guy needs to be taken down quite a few notches. His congregation needs to see him (and themselves) for the hypocrites they are.

  4. Sadly, they will probably take the money instead of a long drawn-out court battle, and this guy will keep on getting his candle blown.

    The more things change, etc.

  5. He's got a lot more resources and money and if any of these guys has ever done anything wrong, and even if not, they will be dragged through the mud to prove that they're worthless trash and he's a pastor so they must all be lying.
    Any good lawyer would tell them to accept a settlement.

  6. Accepting "mediation" is an acknowledgment of the events leading to the accusations. There will be a payout and a gag order in exchange, but the extent of the damage to him is done. No person can be honest with themselves and look at those photos not see a gay man, all be it circa 1990... Watch the good Christian folk forgive and deny, I mean forget...

  7. Members of Eddie Long's church must be deluded and dumb as shit.

    On a broader scale: why is everyone outraged with Bradley Manning and Julian Assange? Same reason. Because, like Long's followers, they drank the Kool Aid given them.

  8. I guess if you can't pray the gay away, pay it not to say...

  9. "Here, you take this cash, and I'll go on with my hypocrisy and make even more money. Deal?"

  10. shouldn't LAMBDA or some gay organization help foot the bill to bring this to trial?

  11. i really think there are men who have sex with men who ABSOLUTELY do not see themselves as gay.

    reminds me of roy cohn in Angels in America: "i'm not gay, i just screw around with men."

  12. My! My! And where will all that settlement money come from? Why, the congregation of course! They'll do the "christian thing" and forgive the good reverend. Then, they'll cast aspersions on the young men. And they'll completely miss the irony of it all. See, if it wasn't for Eddie Long (is that not a GREAT porn-star name or what?) having conned those good "christians" into believing he's got The Answer, the good reverend would probably be parking cars for a living.

  13. "Bishop" Eddie Long doesn't want this to go to trial. All four of these boys will be driving new BMWs for Christmas.

  14. Pink tie. Nice touch.

  15. I don't understand why this isn't a criminal case?

  16. You mean this isn't the Notorious G.A.Y. (closet case) aka Luther Vandross?! Hmmmm...I'm confused.

  17. he's a snake

  18. Several things come to my mind, Deny, Deny, Deny worked for the Catholic Church for decades.

    I have always been a firm believer in the idea that when there is smoke, there is fire.

    And last but certainly not least:

    Me thinks the man, he doth protest too much!

    It seems as though many of the most outspoken, bible pounding men are usually the worst hyprocrites ever to walk the face of Gods green earth.

    He may buy his way out of this "Crisis of Faith", but as a gay Christain, I do believe that sooner or later the Bishop will have to answer to the One and Only True Judge. And my response is may God have mercy on his soul.

    I just pray that if he buys his way out of this mess that the Elders of his church keep him on a short leash and keep him from inflicting himself on anyother young men.

  20. Scum of the earth.

  21. Maybe there is a God! Clearly this monster is the worst kind of human being. I'm praying he is ruined, however people in general are pretty stupid. Preaching hate of any human being is BS.

  22. Ahhhh Chris, enough with your sexy talk! Unfortunately, just ceasing to have a pulse doesn't earn my respect. Like they say, the only qualification one needs to die, is to be alive. What does earn my respect is when people live their lives with integrity and honesty. Closet mo's (like Pastor 90's here, and many others) have neither of these qualities. Sorry to piss on your parade...carry on.

  23. "This release is testament to the positive social effects of alcohol ... On the one hand Nullsleep plied gwEm with drink to encourage him to agree to do an 8bp release, on the other hand gwEm spiked Nullsleep's drink so that he'd agree to make it a live album. When it came to finding someone to record the show gwEm and Random ended up plying each other with drink until they realized the logical course of action. Sadly, gwEm's long time creative partners MC Counter Reset and Colin needed no such alcoholic encouragement. Shows in Hell are easy to get, but hard to come back from. The next best thing we could find was the Bethnal Green Workingman's Club in London's east end. This is the pure sounddesk recording of a very special gig. The only instruments you hear are one Atari STe, a drum kit, and a Flying V through a seriously cranked Marshall.
