Alleged Victim Calls Pastor Eddie Long a "Monster"

Alleged Victim Calls Pastor Eddie Long a "Monster"

One of Long's Accuser Says the Pastor Encouraged Him to Call Him 'Daddy'

One of the four men who've accused a Georgia mega-church pastor of coercing them into sex called the man at the center of the controversy a "predator" and a "monster."

Jamal Parris, 23, told WAGA-TV in Atlanta that Bishop Eddie Long, leader of the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, swept into his life and used him for sex and moved on to younger prey.

"I cannot get the sound of his voice out of my head, and I cannot forget the smell of his cologne, and I cannot forget the way he made me cry when I drove in his car on the way home, not able to take enough showers to get the smell of that man off my body," Parris said in the Tuesday broadcast.

When Parris was 17, he said, Long would take him "alone to the guesthouse" and "encourage him to call him daddy," according to his lawsuit.

None of Long's accusers, including Spencer LaGrande, Maurice Robinson and Anthony Flagg, had spoken publicly since their lawsuits were filed last week.

The other young men claimed in separate lawsuits that he lavished them with expensive gifts and trips and then forced them into sexual relationships when they were teenagers.

Parris alleged that Long also used the "holy scripture to justify and support the sexual activity."

"That man cannot look me in my eye and tell me we did not live this pain, how you can sit in front of the church … you are not a man, you are a monster," Parris told WAGA-TV.

Parris alleges in the documents, obtained by ABC News, that the bishop would request he be nude while in his presence and would request "sexual massages" and "oral sodomy" when they traveled.

In LaGrande's lawsuit, he alleges that he met Long in March 2003 during the first service at a branch Long's Georgia-based church opened in a suburb of Charlotte, N.C.

LaGrande was 17 when, according to the lawsuit, Long first made sexual contact with him during a trip to Nairobi, Kenya. The lawsuit alleges several more instances of sexual contact, both before and after LaGrande graduated from high school.LeGrande said Long agreed to be a father figure for him because his own father was absent, according to court documents, and that Long began asking LaGrande to call him "dad."

Long's accusers have said they believe the bishop abused more young men that eventually will come forward. Many people at the church knew what was going on but covered for Long, victims claimed.

Robinson and Flagg were the first two accusers, followed a short time later by Parris.

Parris' attorney said the young men were brave enough to come forward and should be treated as sex abuse victims.

"If you are a victim and you are a young man or a young boy no matter when it happened in your life it is time to stand up and get to someone and tell them," said B.J. Bernstein, attorney for the alleged victims.

    ATLANTA (CBS/AP) Bishop Eddie Long, the outspoken Atlanta mega-church pastor accused of coercing four young men into sexual relationships, categorically denied the allegations for the first time in a court filing Monday, claiming he was merely a mentor to the men who filed civil suits against him in September.

    For weeks the pastor had not directly countered the allegations, though his attorney denied the accusations on his behalf. But on Monday the avowedly anti-gay pastor specifically addressed the allegations by filing four separate court responses, nearly 30 pages each, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

    Long said in his filings that each of the "claims of sexual misconduct are not true."

    Spencer LeGrande, 22, Jamal Parris, 23, Anthony Flagg, 21, and Maurice Robinson, 20, all filed lawsuits against the pastor in September claiming they were 17 and 18 when Long first adopted them as his "spiritual sons." The men said Long then abused his "spiritual authority" and seduced them with cars, lavish trips and jewelry in exchange for sex, which he allegedly justified with Holy Scripture.

    New chapter by chapter study series

    Hi, following the recent suspension of my youtube account I have decided to take a slightly different direction with my teaching videos. Although I have opened a new account (dazzarai1) on youtube, i have found youtube to be to unreliable and unfair, since they have also recently closed at least 15 other christian accounts.

    I have started a teaching series which will be book by book, chapter by chapter, starting from Pauls 1st epistle to Timothy. I am currently in the process of completing the first book which I will make available FREE on DVD. if you would like a copy of this please email me at and i will get a copy to you.

    I will try and put up some preview clips on youtube, but due to the length of the videos (1Timothy - approx 2hrs) it is too complicated and time constraining to put it all on youtube.

    God bless you all, Daz

    Saved from Prosperity

    The story of how God delivered one couple from the subtle deception of the prosperity gospel.

    The full interview is available here:

    Extreme Prophetic - Patricia King

    Have you ever felt the glory of God like this before???
    I came across the video recently, and I must say that this woman is new to me, however after seeing this clip I saw her on television afew days later.
    Does the glory of God disrupt and hinder you from teaching the word? Are their any biblical examples of this manifestation of his glory.

    im sorry but this spirit/behaviour has to be tested.

    This is "being real thing" going to far? Bishop Weeks

    This guy is classically know for "being real", but is this excuse for his obvious lust problems acceptable as a "Bishop"? Why is no one correcting this man, in the error of his ways?

    The bible says that in the last days men will make sin to be an acceptable thing. We are seeing the climatization of sin in the church right before our very eyes.

    Jude 4
    For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.
