On the heels of his settlement agreement with four young men who accused him of coercing them into sex, Bishop Eddie Long, pastor of the Georgia-based megachurch, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church is taking his show on the road.
Despite declining membership in his Lithonia, Georgia church, Long is expanding. On Sunday he announced that he is opening two more churches in Birmingham and Denver.
During his announcement, Long also hit parishioners up for money, asking them to donate $500-$1000 for seed money for the new churches. And in case churchgoers had any doubts, Long told them not to worry, their tithes and offerings have been spent properly. He said, “All your money’s being done right and being calculated right.”
Well, I guess that settles it.
