Vanessa Griffin Long Blinded By The Devil, Won't Divorce Bishop Eddie Long

By Robert Paul Reyes

"After a great deal of deliberation and prayer, I have decided to terminate my marriage to Bishop Eddie L. Long. Accordingly, I authorized my attorneys to file for divorce on December 1, 2011."

"Upon prayerful reflection, I have reconsidered and plan to withdraw my petition for divorce from my husband, Bishop Eddie L. Long. I love my husband. I believe in him and admire his strength and courage."

Vanessa Griffin Long 12-2-11 afternoon

I have a grudging respect for brilliant con artists who exhibit a certain flair, but the gay Bishop Eddie Long possesses neither intelligence nor style. He`s a religious charlatan with a grade school vocabulary and the gauche style of a pimp.

Nobody in his right mind would give Long the time of day; I wondered how Vanessa could have put up with his degenerate s[e]xual perversions (molesting young boys) for so many years. I guess the fleet of luxury cars at her disposal, and the fabulous mansion she lived in, blinded her to the depravity of her husband.

In the morning when Vanessa was beseeching God for guidance, He opened her eyes and she saw her husband for what he is: A blubbering buffoon. Vanessa finally came to her senses, and she issued a press release stating that she was filing for divorce.

In the afternoon the devil must have whispered to Vanessa: Girlfriend don`t be a fool! Eddie is a self-loathing gay clown, but do you really want to throw away your high standard of living?

God roars in righteous declarations, but the devil quietly and smoothly tells us what we want to hear. Upon prayerful reflection (after looking at her bank statements) she decided to stay with her loving husband.
