Everything Is Going Down, But The Word Of God……Bishop Eddie Lee Long passed away over the weekend, with the sad news being confirmed yesterday (Jan. 15) by the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. The longtime pastor had been privately battling an aggressive form of cancer and was 63 years old at the time of his death.

While his ​family, ​supporters, critics and colleagues took to social media to reflect on his untimely passing, another group came forward to offer a statement of their own.  Many have wanted to hear what does the four young men that were brave enough to come forward has to say.  
Back in 2010, four men, Anthony Flagg, Maurice Robinson, Jamal Parris and Spencer LeGrande, came forward, ​each ​claiming that the pastor coerced​ them ​into having sexual relationships with him. The suit filing claimed that Long engaged with each of the young men in sexual acts, such as massages, masturbation and oral sex, with an undisclosed financial settlement reportedly ​being ​reached a year later.
 The four accusers have shared a statement following the passing of Long, announcing that they are writing a book titled Foursaken, ​which is where they will​ formally be ​address​ing​ their ​various reactions and feelings in depth.
“As much as we’d like to make a statement about the passing of Bishop Eddie Long, we’ve all decided to remain silent, for now,” the group’s statement reads. “We’re all brothers in this. Our perspectives will be addressed in our book, Foursaken, which we hope to release soon.”
According to the report, the co-authors are still looking for a publisher. The book is said to focus on their lives after they parted ways with the controversial preacher. 
Centino Kemp, known as the fifth accuser never actually filed a lawsuit, but after he surfaced Bishop Long quickly reached a settlement.  It seems that he is not included in the book Foursaken and actually wrote his on book that was released online.  Obnoxious Media later discovered that a great deal of the claims made in the book were not true at all and in fact he met online.  Kemp was selling himself on Craiglist and Bishop Long alleagedly responded to his ad.  Insiders say Kemp never knew Long was a famous pastor until the story broke and he saw it on the news and came forward.
