If anybody should understand and abide by the concepts of shame and repentance, it should be an evangelical preacher.

Bishop Eddie Long is a transparent con artist, a hypocritical homophobe, and a suspected child molester. Long should be hanging his head in shame, instead of grinning like an idiot on the cover of "Gospel Today."

Teresa Hairston, the owner of "Gospel Today", is making a mockery of her faith by featuring the homophobic hypocrite on the cover of her magazine.

Bishop Eddie Long should be gracing the cover of "Playas International" or "Funky Wigs", not the cover of a Christian publication.

Readers of Hairston`s rag are furious, they feel that the only reason the disgraced minister appears on the cover is because he`s the chair of the magazine`s board.

If there`s a hell, Teresa Hairston and Eddie Long are going to be dancing the Jheri Curl Dance while demons poke them with hot irons.
