"Four men — Anthony Flagg, 21; Maurice Robinson, 20; Jamal Parris, 23; and Spencer LeGrande, 22 — filed lawsuits in DeKalb civil court last week accusing the 57-year-old minister of lavishing gifts and money on them in exchange for sexual favors.
For church members, the suits were like waves — two were filed on Tuesday, another on Wednesday, a fourth on Friday — each threatening to erode the foundations of the largest church in Georgia.
Flagg, Robinson and Parris say the relationships began when they were teens, “spiritual sons” in a church ministry called LongFellows Youth Academy.
LeGrande’s suit said his relationship with Long began after the New Birth pastor met him at the first service held at a satellite church in Charlotte and continued for two years after LeGrande moved to Atlanta."
Excerpt of his response to the accusations today. Audio only with a still on YouTube. Denies allegations: "I am not the man being portrayed on the television." . . . "I am not a perfect man, but this thing, I am going to fight."
