Bishop Long, GLBT, and Bishop Pearson

In recent days Bishop Eddie Long, the African-American pastor of a mega-church has faced allegations of sexual harassment by male parishioners.  He has been accused of using his pulpit to influence young men.  This from a preacher who has been consistently against same-sex marriage and has condemned gays and lesbians from the pulpit.

Bishop Long has denied the allegations and said he would fight them.

Here is a wonderful interview with my friend and fellow HRC Religious Council Leader Bishop Carlton Pearson speaking about Bishop Long, human sexuality, the African-American Church and the need for inclusiveness.  Bravo to Bishop Pearson.  He speaks powerfully and beautifully.  You can go to the CNN Page to hear it.
