This week past week, four young men accused Bishop Eddie L. Long, of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia, of coercing them into sexual acts. Bishop Long denied the claims in a written statement released by his attorney on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” and then addressed the allegations made against him from the pulpit on Sunday, September 26th telling the congregation that he was prepared to fight.

Rev. Kanika Magee of Ebenezer African Methodist Episcopal Church, public relations strategist and MSNBC contributor Karen Finney, and News One’s Smokey Fontaine join Roland Martin to talk about the impact of this scandal on the Black church.
