Bishop Eddie Long, from the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and a well-respected figure in Atlanta, has been accused in a lawsuit of coercing young men into having sex with him.

One of the men who filed the lawsuit against Bishop Eddie Long is 21-year-old Anthony Flagg, who claims he was taken by Long to half a dozen American cities and during those trips he was coerced into having sex:

“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,” says the suit.

Bishop Long has denied those claims via his lawyer, saying: “We categorically deny the allegations. It is very unfortunate that someone has taken this course of action. Our law firm will be able to respond once attorneys have had an opportunity to review the lawsuit.”

The other man accusing Long is called Maurice Robinson. He and Flagg were 17 and 18 years old respectively when the sexual abuse took place. The lawsuit even says that the Church knew about Bishop Eddie Long’s secret but they ignored it to protect the church.
