September 27, 2010

Bishop Eddie Long’s wife, Vanessa Long, is standing by her man in the midst of a lawsuit of sexual assault claims. And this Sunday September 26th, 2010 when he took the church pulpit he did address those accusations, with his wife by his side. Check out the video and read more about Vanessa here!

Meet Vanessa Long, (formerly Vanessa Griffin) Bishop Eddie Long’s wife. While not a lot is known about Vanessa biographically we will update when we attain more information. What we do know is that Vanessa married Eddie and they have four children together: Eric, Edward, Jared and Taylor.

According to the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church website, we discovered that Vanessa is from the Columbus, Georgia area. It was after she graduated from Morris Brown College in 1980 that she worked for the U.S. Department of Education. She met Eddie at New Birth, married and share four children together. Vanessa is very active in the church, serving on the Board of Directors for the New Birth Christian Academy and also is the host for the Heart to Heart Women’s Conference that takes place every year.

In addition, Vanessa founded the program Women on the Path, helping women to delve into a deeper relationship with God. She also is active in the Soul Survivor Cancer Support Group, helping those who have been battling cancer.

On Sunday September 26th, Vanessa’s husband Eddie addressed those accusations of sexual assault by telling the congregation, “I am not the man that has been portrayed on television. I’ve been accused, I’m under attack. I want you to know, as I said earlier, that I am not a perfect man. But this thing, I’m going to fight. I feel like David against Goliath, but I’ve got five rocks and I haven’t thrown one yet.”

Vanessa was present, standing by her man but not saying a word.

What do you think of those sexual assault allegations brought on by four different men and do you think Vanessa Long, Eddie Long’s wife, will continue to support her hubby?

    I am sure she’s being cautious as she awaits the outcome. I am praying that God will guard her heart.

    The Bishop obviously “controls” that relationship so she has no choice but to hang in there with him! He will not have it any other way. If his wife steps away, that will look too obvious.

    Eddie Long has issues like everybody else. His main issue is his arrogance. This man needs to humble himself. explain what made him solicit sex outside of his marriage, and ask for forgiveness and step down temporarily. The love and adoration his 25,000 member flock is real and I believe their pain can be healed as long as Long is REAL with it. He can come back stronger…Bishop Long is a gifted communicator and charismatic. Keep THAT and start the cleansing process. Let him DO THE WORK!

    I hope that this allegation is not true,this is looking very bad in the body of Christ.What the Bishop should do is to go before a court and clear his name. I know that people could fabricate all kind of stories to destroy others. I pray and hope that God will see the family through.I wonder why these young men did not come forward all the time. Why now?

    It is sad to say…however, I believe his wife will stand with him through this. At the point that all of the truth is revealed…the true test of their love and marriage will emerge. The most intricate part of their problem, if he is convicted, is trusting him any further because of all that was done including the lies. NO ONE wants to be lied to constantly in a relationship. It looks like…turth be told…that SHE was in that marriage by herself…

    My feeling is she knows and that they have a don’t ask don’t tell policy, which would make her duplicit. If this is the case, it could be why he is so evasive with the media and canceling appearances everywhere.

    This sitch could go way deeper than Haggard and much deeper than we are suspecting. Haggard was with one guy as far as we know and had no church followers aware of his affair, Eddie Long has been with possibly dozens over the years with people knowing of his meanderings. This could get a whole lot of people in trouble if there ever was an under age event. Covering up a crime is illegal.

    This is going to be a big nut to crack
