I guess Bishop Eddie Long wasn't really on a diet after all....Rest in Peace!

Perfect example of Karma catching up with you.  He was lying to himself as life told the real truth.  He may have died from "cancer."  However, having AIDS is ear mark for the  "diagnosis of any three fatal cancers" at which HIV infection has progressed to AIDS.  In other words durin the lying about being with young boys and now being sick, Long was deceitful from the very  beginning. So as a result he contracted the deadly disease.   And  like Karma.  You can't hide from it.  It is a lesson I've learned about life.  So. There is going be another monster to meet this same feat.  Trust and believe.  Having said that, Eddie abused children...so he gets NO sympathy from me.  He used his position as pastor to "rape" innocent boys.  I'm sure he has a lot of explaining to do where he's headed.   Cuz it is a LAW against nature and any spiritual being that says....you just don't molest/abuse/hurt/mistreat children.  Period.  But!

I wonder what his legacy will be.  I wonder who will lead that church.  I wonder if God took him out for the stuff he did.  I hope his victims can have peace knowing that he can't harm any new people.

Bishop Eddie Long Is Not the Only One Who’s Dead

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Eddie Long seen looking downward with his hands clasped to his face.]

 


“They say you shouldn’t say nothin’ about the dead unless it’s good. He’s dead. Good!” - Moms Mabley
(This story contains discussions of child abuse, rape and rape culture. Discretion is advised.)


Bishop Eddie Long is dead.
What remains alive and unsettling is the way we rally around a predator.
The way that we regard death as an excuse to kill truth.
The way we will look away or close our eyes when our children are in danger. Turn our children over, in fact, as an offering, as another kind of tithe to a person who means to use them as food or sex-toy in the name of White Jesus.
The way we blame the child for being “fast” or “grown” or for “letting” it happen to them and being “old enough to know better.” No balm offered, just “Suck it up. It happened to all of us. Next time, you’ll keep your damn legs closed!”
We never talk about our complicity. How, in some ways, we’re glad the horror was perpetrated by someone with some influence and some money. Our children, then, have a more practical, material use: as meal tickets rather than as lights. Isn’t that why we still attend services even after we know that our churches conspire to rape our children on a mass scale — become rape factories draped in religious symbols and dogma — and cover it up?
Isn’t that what Corey Feldman told us? That his parents knew he was being raped by wealthy heads of studios and his parents told him to endure it for the money, and the millions would be their own cure?
R. Kelly married Aaliyah when she was 15 years old, stalked middle school playgrounds for “fresh meat,” and peed on the face of a girl who still wore pigtails and barrettes — and had the gall to record it. And yet, we went down to the courthouse, proud for no reason, with signs held high above our heads that read: “R. Kelly is innocent!” not knowing that also written on those signs, in invisible ink, was the postscript: “But we ain’t!”
I guess this is how it works in churches, too. We’re good with the pastor fucking our children as long as he wines and dines them first; shows them the same “favor” Jehovah showed a little girl named Mary; grooms them for who knows what, unloading puddles onto them and into them, before discarding them for the next, younger, fresher batch.
Then, when we look into the eyes of those children and the shine is gone, we pretend it was never there to begin with; that they were born with that dullness and the dullness is a good thing because now nothing they endure can tarnish them any further. You cannot debase the already debased. And this is our gift to them.
In this country, we love ovum and sperm. We love zygotes and embryos. We even love fetuses. But we do not — no, we absolutely do not — love children.
I imagine that the real reason so many of us despise abortion is because it denies us of our cannon fodder. If children are taken away before we’ve had the opportunity to abuse them, disappoint them, and use them as our outhouses, then how in the world could we ever understand what it means to be godly?
I believe Eddie Long raped our sons (any tiny, hypocritical outrage we felt about that came from his choice of gender/sex, not from his choice to rape; we don’t mind rape/pedophilia; it’s queer people we can’t stand; and, in any event, there’s no one we hate more righteously than black girls). He groomed them, gained their trust, offered them baubles and prestige, made them feel a sense of loyalty and obligation, and then, when he felt them ripe and pliable, and, maybe even, in some cases, “legal,” he pulled down his pants and, in rock-hard seriousness, commanded them to suck. He bent them over and inserted himself inside. He left his mark upon them and, in our profound and impenetrable denial, we called it an anointing.
And then, still smelling of our babies, their newly sprouted pubic hairs still stuck between his teeth, he got up onto the stage, stepped behind the pulpit, opened a book that commands rapists to marry their victims (did Long ever propose to any of his?), wiped our children’s blood from the corners of his mouth before he opened it to spew, in the most literal sense, textbook lies. And we loved him in spite of it; perhaps because of it. We have, after all, always been more loyal to the domination-philosophies of our masters than to the veracity of blood memory.
These very obvious betrayals of children — if we must hear it in the language of our oppressors — are the thirty pieces of silver.
What this means is very simple:
Eddie Long is not the only one who’s dead.

  Hopefully his legacy will be to parents don't trust your children with anyone...including pastors, teachers, coaches etc.  Yes be up in their faces when it comes to your kids.  Don't let religious leaders or any adult person have FULL power over your children.  And the legacy should also be....if your instincts tell you something aint about that person who is always around kids....TRUST IT!  A lot of his victims are going continue to be afraid because THEY know he died of AIDS.  So they are going to have to check themselves from now until the next ten years to make sure he didn't infect them.  Black people should WAKE up on this....everybody 'for" your kids.....ain't for your kids.  It's always a hidden agenda.  Now I rather be WRONG.....in being suspicious and cautious ...than to be RIGHT and have a kid's life destroyed.  So I hope this will be his legacy to parent to LOVE YOUR KIDS....more than yourself.  And protect them with all your might until they are old enough to protect themselves.  But!
