New Birth Gay Member Speaks OutPublished by Torrence Glenn on Tuesday, October 5, 2010 at 4:55 pm.
Recently while in Atlanta, BET News Correspondent Tony Anderson caught up with members of Bishop Eddie Long’s church, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church to discuss the recent scandal that has plagued not only their Pastor, but the church as a whole. What’s different about this particular member’s view is that we haven’t been seen from other members that have been interviewed is that Samuel Brown is gay. Yep… We’ve seen interviews with various members of the church who have weighed in on the issue but none have identified themselves as gay so in the interest of PERSPECTIVE I thought it made sense to get another take.
Being that the claims against Bishop Long charge him with sexual coercion towards young men and not young women, I think Samuel’s perspective is rare and rather relevant to this situation. Take a look and tell me what you think. What he says may surprise you.
But I guess the big question is… Is he going to church next Sunday?
