A bout of “He Said, He Said” Erupts In Bishop Eddie Long Sex Case

A war of words has erupted between both sides of the controversial sex case against metro Atlanta megachurch bishop Eddie Long. An attorney representing the embattled New Birth Missionary Baptist Church pastor has accused the four young men who have filed lawsuits claiming sexual impropriety – and their lawyer – of  “attempting to try their lawsuits in the media.” The accusations from Long’s lawyer Craig Gillen follow the airing of WAGA-TV’s interview Tuesday night with Jamal Parris. In a statement Gillen told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “There are rules on how civil litigation is to take place and how counsel should conduct themselves, we intend to follow those rules.” In the taped interview outside a Colorado grocery store Parris said that he loved the Lithonia pastor but now considers him “a monster.”
