Bishop Long is emblematic of the problems preaching a prosperity gospel: what is the point of having a lot of money if you are just spending it on hot young things you seduce with trinkets for twinks? It did not hurt that he rose to prominence as the center of a cultus: his own. We have one here locally, too, about to go national now that he's published a book daring us to be rich; these people spend more time at the beauty parlor than praying. If they pray to any god at all it is Mammon, and we atheists know more about him than Christian evangelicals do. If the young mens' allegations are true, we have a man who wrote the book on hypocrisy: use of the same book to condemn homosexuals when the person thumping on his Booble is none other than Bishop Long. It might not have hurt, either, that if he was trolling for men his age, not children, having a name like Long ought to be a hell of an asset!
