Eddie Long: the wider context


ReligionNewsBlog.com • Sunday September 26, 2010

Some articles that provide a wider context to the Eddie Long case:

• It is, parishioners and observers say, a moment of undeniable crisis in the black church.

“The only person in the pantheon of black churches who is bigger than this is T.D. Jakes,” said Anthea Butler, a religion professor at the University of Pennsylvania who was among those flying down to Georgia. “And Atlanta is the epicenter of black church life. . . . It’s going to rock everything at the church, and people will really start to question these ministers.”
