For the second time in as many days, one of the four young men who filed suit against Eddie Long is speaking out. This time it's Spencer LeGrande, the North Carolina man who filed suit against Long on Friday. LeGrande was a member of New Birth Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina and the fourth man to file a sexual coercion lawsuit against the anti-gay mega-church pastor.
Spencer LeGrande does not repeat the intimate details provided in the lawsuit, including being seduced while taken on trips to Kenya, South Africa and Zimbabwe when he was only 16-years-old. "Once God is ready to expose everything, it's going to happen. But pray for us ... this is a very difficult time, what we're going through."
"I wasn't free until I came out with it," LeGrande says in the television interview. He said he does not hate Long "because God doesn't produce hate. I pray for everyone, especially the bishop, because he knows the truth."
Two very important details: Spencer LeGrande has never met any of the three other men who filed similar suits, Anthony Flagg, Maurice Robinson or Jamal Parris, who spoke to the media on Tuesday. Also, Spencer LeGrande says he later confided in his immediate family, a few friends, his ex-girlfriend and a police officer.
Sounds like this is will be a very difficult case to dismiss. Watch WSB's report AFTER THE JUMP ...
