There was a shooting in the New Birth church parking lot last Saturday…. yes a SHOOTING! and on top of that, investigations have revealed that the financial scandal that Long pleaded about on YouTube is somehow tied to illegal gambling!!!
Details + Fox5 I-Team investigation video below:
Saturday, February 5, 2011, an unidentified man was shot in the parking lot of Long’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, GA. He is now in critical condition.
Authorities say the shooting is not connected to the church but at this point, we can only speculate that it’s some kind of a sign.
In addition to the shooting, Atlanta’s Fox 5 aired an extensive investigative report last week about the latest controversy surrounding Bishop Long’s dealings with the financial investmensts of several members of his church.
According to the Fox 5 investigation, Long allegedly told his congregation that everything Taylor said was based “on the word of God” and trusting churchgoers ate it up and assumed their hard earned retirement funds would be safe, based on their pastor’s endorsement.
