BREAKING – Pastor "Down-Low" Eddie Long Being Investigated By Feds Over Mortgage Scam

It’s turning out that Atlanta’s pompous. self righteous, anti-gay closet case MegaChurch Pastor Eddie “Down Low” Long who has continued his bleating of “innocence” against charges that he took sexual advantage of four young men now has something else to cry innocence against.  Long and another local megachurch leader, Gary Hawkins, are linked to a questionable mortgage venture that is being investigated by the feds courtesy of CBS Atlanta.

Matrix Capital`s promised to lower people`s mortgages for $1,500 upfront and  thousands of homeowners paid Matrix money, but according to investigators, most of them ended up in bankruptcy and losing their homes

And where did  Matrix Capital front man Fred Lee look for his victims to con?  You got it.  Pastor Down Low’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Church where Lee was invited by Bishop as a “professional courtesy” (one con man to another) to use his church facilities.

Down Low Sexual Predator Pastor Eddie Long Will "Mediate" Case Out Of Court – AC360 Video

Atlanta’s pompous and self righteous MegaChurch Pastor Eddie Long who has continued his bleating of “innocence” against charges that he took sexual advantage of four young men has decided :to avoid having his personal business divulged in a big trial, (like that he’s a big ole nasty down low sex predator) has agreed to enter mediation with his four accusers over charges of “sexual coercion.”  Long will probably insist he agreed to mediation to avoid an ugly court battle that would harm the reputation of his church and his congregation, and that would be a reasonable concern … for an innocent man that is. 

So it’s truly worth noting that the four men accusing Long of sexual misconduct have not sought out media attention. Though their attorney has given statements to the press, the PR campaign against Long began only after he refused private overtures to settle the matter. Also , the men have only given interviews to reporters when they were ambushed at their homes, not during scheduled and purposeful interviews.  So any attestation by Long that this is false extortion does not seem to fit.

Can we say…….GUILTY?

Watch Bishop Eddie "Down Low" Long Address His Congregation That He Won’t Resign

Bishop Eddie Long aka Bishop Eddie “Down Low”  Long finally responded today to the gay sex scandal he’s found himself in over the past week
“Down Low” preched from the pulpit during his sermon at  The New Birth Missionary Baptist Church: (in which he dedicated a whole 3 minutes out of a 22 minute sermon)

“There have been allegations and attacks made on me. I have never in my life portrayed myself as a perfect man, but I am not the man being portrayed on television. That’s not me. That is not me…I am not going to try this case in the media, it will be tried in the court of justice and decided in the court of justice. Please hear this: I’ve been accused. I’m under attack. I want you to know as I said earlier I am not a perfect man… But this thing I’m going to fight. I feel like David against Goliath, but I’ve got five rocks and I haven’t thrown one yet.”

It’s really obvious considering how quite “Down Low” has been that his attorneys are hard at work trying to settle out of court. Then his lawyers will announce that the good “bishop” can’t speak about this matter as it is now settled. In the meantime, his attorneys will say it’s all a big misunderstanding. After all, don’t all clergymen give cars and other expensive gifts to the teenage boys?

Oh and btw Eddie that is the GAYEST suit jacket with embroidered crest thingy. He might want to butch it up! (ust a suggestion)

Anti-gay African American Pastor Eddie Long Of New Birth Missionary Baptist MegaChurch Charged With Coercing Two Teenaged Males Into Having Gay Sex

Atlanta, Georgia’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Mega-Church (which has 25,000 to 33,300 parishioners according to the church’s Web site.) Pastor Eddie Long, who Southern Poverty Law Center’s magazine named ‘one of the most virulently homophobic black leaders in the religiously based anti-gay movement.'” has been charged of coercing two young male members and employees of his church into having gay sex.  The two men now 20, and 21 years old state  in a lawsuit brought in Dekalb, Georgia that Long used his authority improperly and pressured them, via his spiritual authority to seduce them with cars, money, clothes, jewelry, international trips and access to celebrities.” and coerce them into sex.

“Long is considered one of the nation’s top black preachers. His church has more 25,000 members, according to the suit, and was the site of Coretta Scott King’s 2006 funeral, attended by then-President George W. Bush and three previous presidents. King was the widow of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. The pastor took one plaintiff, Anthony Flagg, 21, on overnight trips to a half-dozen American cities in recent years, Flagg’s suit alleges. ‘Long shared a bedroom and engaged in intimate sexual contact with plaintiff Flagg including kissing, massaging, masturbating of plaintiff Flagg by defendant Long and oral sexual contact,’ the suit says. Long took the other plaintiff, Maurice Murray Robinson, 20, to Auckland, New Zealand, in October 2008 for his 18th birthday and engaged in oral sex with him, Robinson’s suit alleges. The suits also said that Long framed the sexual relationships as religious in nature. The suits allege that Long chose the plaintiffs to be his “Spiritual Sons,” a program that allegedly includes other young men from the church.” – via CNN
