He'll Make a Deacon of You
"Men can look attractive when they are dirty.", Bishop Eddie Long says in his 1997 book I don't Want Delilah, I Need You!, "We see sweaty, dirty, hardworking men on television all the time ans we say to one another,'There is a macho guy.'".
I initially read this as a message to women to be more feminine and to avoid lesbianism - but on further review, maybe Eddie was speaking for himself.
Can an anti-gay church leader be gay himself?
Or are these former parishioners just looking for another payday?
