#RIP…Bishop Eddie L. Long Has Passed…

Death has reared its ugly head yet again and invaded the ranks.

No we do not have another celebrity death, but someone who was a celebrity in his own right–and a pastor. It is with a heavy heart we report that Bishop Eddie L. Long has passed.

There has been a report on Channel 2 Action News, and  reports are coming in from social media, members of his congregation, and namely his former Minister of Music, Byron Cage. Byron tweeted the following below.

As you may already know Bishop Long was the pastor of megachurch, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. He was known for years for his large congregation, affluence, and powerful sermons of hope and love throughout the metro-Atlanta area. In recent years he was embroiled by controversy, namely allegations of sexual misconduct. In the last year, however, it was his dramatic weight loss that caught national news. Originally, Bishop explained his weight loss was attributed to a raw, vegan diet; and later a still as of yet unexplained illness. Then homophobic pastor, Kim Burrell, alleged his weight loss was due to engaging in a homosexual lifestyle. There is no news of what his exact cause of death was as of yet.

Whatever anyone’s personal feelings are about Bishop Long he was still a man and a human being. We will be praying for his family and congregation during this tragic time. Feel free to leave your comments and APPROPRIATE condolences below.
