We would presume that all of the world and some were anticipating the address of the allegations of sexual coercion of four men and a fifth non-confirmed young man against Bishop Eddie Long.
While tuning into the services this morning at 8am, we documented the service and his address/mini sermon. The church was unusually full with attendance of probably every member, ex-member, press agents and the like to hear what Bishop Long would say after the horrendous allegations coming against him.
This is how it went in order or events:
Are San Francisco’s Catholic Schools Being Controlled by Lawmakers?, Report Says
Read story from CBS News from San Francisco
San Franciscans are currently debating a simple question: Should the government respect the right of Catholic schools to be authentically Catholic?
San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone thinks so. But eight California senators and assemblymen sent the archbishop a letter last month, saying that his actions in issuing new faculty guidelines “foment a discriminatory environment in the communities we serve.” On Feb. 23, two of the signers even asked the California Assembly Labor and Employment Committee and the Assembly Judiciary Committee to investigate the archdiocese’s actions.
UK Bed and Breakfast to Close Doors After Refusing to Service Gay Couple
Christian bed and breakfast owners who once famously refused service to a gay couple in the U.K. now claim that they’ve been forced to sell their hotel following a contentious legal battle and ongoing harassment.

They say they have been the victims of vandalism, death threats and website attacks since the 2008 incident. Some of the website attacks have included pornography targeted to their website. It’s bee a constant battle with having to lose their Chymorvah Hotel in Marazion, Cornwall and the growing anger from gay supporters.
Pastor Efrem Buckle Deals With Death in a Beautiful Way [VIDEO]
We want to thank Real Christianity site for this update.
We thought this was a great video and the words from the pastor are very powerful. It deals with how we approach death and compares it to the death of Jesus Christ. He reminds us that we shall still live because Christ, our redeemer lives. If we have the assurance that we live for Christ, we shall live. And by knowing this, we should never be afraid of death.
Religious Entrepreneurs Vow ‘Holy Sex Toys’ Will Save Your Marriage?
Are we surprised at the outlandish exploitation of the sex industry targeting Christians? And just how many Christians are occupying space in these stores or online portals? We have found that the sex toy industry is worth $15 billion dollar which is a growing business but for apparently religious business people to find pleasure and profit from selling these items specifically for the Christian community is appalling.
Read the report below and see how some Christians are getting sucked into the sexual sin of the world and a need for pleasure that God would not approve nor condone:
News today states that Bishop Long was officially served with court papers for the lawsuits of allegations he coerced 4 young men into a sexual relationship when they were 14 and 15 years of age.
Court papers were hand delivered to Long’s home today in suburban Atlanta that shows that he is officially a defendant in these lawsuits.
Accused pastor of New Birth, Bishop Eddie Long is seen racing through his suburban Atlanta neighborhood, in his black Range Rover.
Apparently he is trying to avoid any press that are watching him. It was filmed as well. Someone could have been struck by his car as fast as he was going.
Well, he’s lived as a celebrity preacher in the church and all over the world, so now he must endure the press and paparazzi like any other popular Hollywood star.
What does he have to hide? Hmmmm.
Here’s a quick shot of it on video.
Story broke that Spencer LeGrande, the fourth accuser to come forward of allegations against Bishop Long sexually coercing him since a teen has some support of his own.
His REAL father has come forward to speak out about what has happened to his son, Spencer. Eddie LeGrande, the father of Spencer says he wasn’t a big part of his son’s life, splitting up with his mother when Spencer was a toddler.
He says he knew Bishop Long had taken a big role in his life as a father when Spencer was a teen.
