Long ... announced in December that he was taking a brief leave to use the time to heal his family. Long's wife, Vanessa, has filed for divorce. A spokesman said Long preached at the New Year's Eve service and will continue to do so at weekly services.
The anti-gay televangelist was accused of luring at least five young men into sexual relationships. Long was accused of using church funds to give the young men cash, gifts and cars. The sexual relationships reportedly began when each of the plaintiffs were around 16 years old. Long reached an out-of-court settlement with the young men in May 2011.
So has Eddie Long's family "healed" from this sexual misconduct? The divorce filing would imply "no."
