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!
