Protesters gathered yesterday at the Georgia Capitol to call for the resignation of Bishop Eddie Long over accusations the megachurch leader had sexual relationships with young men under his spiritual guidance.
Bishop H. "Prophet" Walker, a minister from Spartanburg, S.C., helped organize the rally and was among the handful of protesters calling for Long’s resignation.
Four lawsuits have been filed against Long, all claiming sexual coercion. Long, so far, has had the support of his congregation at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and has vowed to fight the allegations.
The rally featured six speakers who decried homosexuality.
"Homosexual practice is always wrong,” said Peter LaBarbera, President of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality. “It doesn't matter if you practice it in public in San Francisco or secretly as a church leader, Mr. Long."
According to WSB-TV, organizers received death threats in the lead-up to the event but the rally was peaceful, despite the harsh tone from organizers.
