Bishop Eddie Long Scandal

Postby iamcutdacheck » Mon Sep 27, 2010 2:33 am

The influence and size of Bishop Eddie Long's mega-church, New Birth in Atlanta, Georgia has made the charges levied against him interesting. While the charges of improper conduct echo a growing sub-culture among American Minorities,I find the tenor of the dialogue revolving around Eddie Long disturbing. I often wonder why upper lower-class and lower-middle class people engage so much of their finances and time to congregational worship. Im not suggesting a secular agenda, nor am I excusing Eddie Long from public scrutiny, but I am intrigued as to what lasting effects the resolution of Eddie Long's charges will have towards the interpretation of faith and hope in minority communities.

This is not what the URM forum is for.
