Pas­tor de­nies sex al­le­ga­tions

Los Angeles Times - - The Nation -

The prom­i­nent pas­tor of a 25,000-mem­ber megachurch who has op­posed same-sex mar­riages is deny­ing al­le­ga­tions in a law­suit that he co­erced two young men from the con­gre­ga­tion into a sex­ual re­la­tion­ship, his at­tor­ney said.

Lawyers for the men, now 20 and 21, said they filed the law­suit Tues­day in DeKalb County Court against Bishop Ed­die Long.

The men who filed the suit were 17-and 18-year-old mem­bers of the church when they say Long abused his spir­i­tual author­ity to se­duce them.
