The much publicized sexual allegations against Bishop Eddie Long have resurfaced with a recent media interview from two of his accusers, Jamal Parris and Spencer LeGrande. In a recent interview with WSB-TV Atlanta, the two young men told reporters that they are preparing to wrtie a “tell-all” book detailing their relationship with Bishop Eddie Long.
Some have asked if the writing of this book would be “against the law” resulting in jail time for Parris and LeGrande. Due to the fact that this is a civil matter, the young men would not face jail time for violating the order. However, it is almost certain that Parris and LeGrande would be in violation of the settlement agreement.
In an email to members, Bishop Long wrote:
Unfortunately, we are in the media again and people are wondering what I am going to say. All I have to say is what we stated earlier. All parties involved decided to resolve the civil cases out of court. The decision was made to bring closure to this matter and allow us to move forward with the plans God has for this ministry.
I will continue to honor and abide by my commitment of confidentiality and restraint as it relates to the resolution of the civil litigation and will not be diverted from the important work of the ministry.
So, what’s your take? Have you continued to follow the Bishop Long story? Will you buy a copy of the book when and if it comes out? What can we learn from this latest development?
