For God's Sake Vanessa Griffin Long, Expose Your Husband Eddie Long!

By Robert Paul Reyes

In Bishop Eddie Long`s first public appearance after he was exposed as a sexual predator, his spouse dutifully stood by her man.

Long, held his wife`s hand, and gently kissed her on the lips and then he led her back to her seat on stage, before he took to the pulpit to address his congregation.

It`s as if the colorful con artist was saying. "OK woman you`ve provided me with the necessary cover, no get out of the way and let me do my thing and bamboozle my followers.

Eddie Long may rock the pimp look, but his better half is the very epitome of understated elegance. Since Vanessa Griffin Long was mute, we had no option but to focus on her elegant attire.

In the immediate aftermath of the scandal that has rocked the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, Vanessa was silent.

It`s been a couple of weeks since the crap hit the proverbial fan, and Vanessa has had time to realize that by remaining silent she is complicit in the sins of her wayward husband.

But Mrs. Long hasn`t uttered a word in defense of the disgraced minister. If Vanessa believed that her husband was innocent of child molestation, she would have shouted from the rooftops: My husband may have a wardrobe that would make a pimp blush, and he may sashay on the gay side of the street, and he may wear a toupee that looks like a dead vulture that fell on his head, but he isn`t a child molester.

Vanessa hasn`t publicly defended her husband because she knows that he is guilty as sin. Vanessa needs to tell the truth about her husband, and kick the bum to the curb. Vanessa may not be able to afford haute couture if she divorces her con artist husband, but she will sleep well at night knowing that Eddie Long won`t be in a position to rob young boys of their innocence.
