There are more developments in the shocking case of Eddie Long, the prominent anti-gay Atlanta mega-church pastor accused of pressuring young male members of his church into sexual relations. Yesterday in DeKalb County, Georgia, the two men aged 20 and 21 filed lawsuits against the well-known televangelist.
Via a spokesperson, the pastor has denied the allegations "but declined to get specific when pressed, saying the lawyers had yet to look at the full lawsuits."
Anthony Flagg and Maurice Robinson claim they began having relations with Long at the age of 16. The suits allege Long used church funds to give them cash and gifts. "Robinson was placed on the payroll. In addition Long bought Flagg a Ford Mustang."
The men say Long flew them around the world "on Long’s personal jet and shared a bed with him at the hotels. Long used the alias “Dick Tracy” when he checked into the hotel."
The website for Long's church, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, has been down since the story broke Tuesday evening.
