Eddie Long is proving more and more that he doesn’t quite know when to “fold ‘em” and slink back under the rock he escaped.
As I’ve said before – this blog is not “all things Eddie Long”, I am simply documenting the dissection of a pulpit pimp before our very eyes…and Eddie seems to want to shine more and more light on his dysfunction on a regular basis.
In late January, Eddie made a YouTube appeal asking an investor to return money to members of his congregation (some of the lemmings left at Club New Birth) that he claimed was mishandled. It was a bizarre appeal (considering Eddie regularly mishandled money culled from his lemmings), and it caught the attention of the local Fox affiliate.
I pretty much ignored the story back then - although I found it difficult to at first. Like many others, I’ve thrown good money after bad at Eddie’s Ponzi schemes during my time of strong delusion at CNB - and I’ve even lost money to the snake-oil sales people he brought before the congregation as well (failed “magazine subscriptions”, “New Birth water”, Mark Hanby’s phony corporate stock purchasing scams, and more).
Still, I had to scratch my head in wonder – why would a wig-wearing alleged homosexual “bishop” choose to remain in the public eye while simultaneously fighting/mediating a civil lawsuit for sexual coercion? It doesn’t make sense – but not much coming out of CNB does these days.
We all know that Eddie is a metaphorical gambler – he plays “fast and loose” with the truth and rolls the dice when it comes to butchering God’s Word. Thanks to a helpful reminder from my brother IndependentConservative (who is doing well, just taking a VERY LONG blog hiatus), we now know that apparently Eddie is also a literal gambler.
It looks like Eddie encouraged his sheeple to invest in “sweepstakes machines”…yup, the good “bishop” was drumming up participants for a gambling business.

I keep wondering why Eddie even still has keys to that building. C’mon Eddie, know when to fold ‘em…sheesh.
