Megachurch Pastor Bishop Eddie Long Reportedly Hospitalized With Grave Illness
After recently turning heads with his drastic weight loss that he says he achieved through a new vegan diet, a new report claims controversial pastor Bishop Eddie Long, 63, of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia, was hospitalized last week with a grave illness.
Founder of Obnoxioustv's blog William McCray III, reported Friday that he was informed by a close friend of the bishop, who he also alleges is a verified member of Long's church, that the pastor is suffering from an unspecified gastro-intestinal cancer that has already progressed to stage 4.
"Recently, while out to dinner with some prominent minister friends a person approached our table and specifically want to speak to Sir William, (sic) in a very humble and politely asked if they could have seat. We said sure and the source went on to share they were a member of New Birth and choose to stay through the scandal. The source shared their name and shared they were very close to Bishop Long and asked if Obnoxious Media would take it easy on bishop due to his having cancer," McCray reported.
