    A megachurch is like a toilet.
    Everyone goes there to do their thing, then leaves as quickly as possible.

    One can only hope that this scandal is the beginning of the end of this church, and a step towards the end of religion – that the house of cards is on the verge of internal collapse. Unfortunately, it does appear that there sufficent gullible people to keep this charade going for the foreseeable future.

      Close this dump up. Send the gay man to jail for diddling with young men. Pay them what then want and bulldoze this building to the ground and open up a Kentucky Fried Food joint. It to will be 'finger licking good', y'all hear.

    To every Bishop and Pastor that has so much to say aganist Bishop Long. I would like to know what kind of Bishop and Pastors you are. If you are truly reading the Bible whatever happen to if a brother falls we are to pray for him or her. You have no proof about nothing. Wait to hear the outcome. Stop condumming because, you have things to hide too. No one is without sin. You who write about snakes in the pulpil, you must be one yourself. How would you know if you are not one.
