The Bishop Eddie Long lawsuit scandal has Long facing accusations of sexual abuse from two young men in his church.

“It’s not just these two. There are young men around him at all times,” the men’s attorney B.J. Bernstein said. “There are kids at risk now.”

Two DeKalb County men , Anthony Flagg and Maurice Robinson, filed lawsuits Tuesday alleging Bishop Eddie Long coerced them into having sex with him in exchange for lavish trips, cars and cash from New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

The men’s attorney called Bishop Eddie Long a “sexual predator” and said she is now talking to other potential victims.

Atlanta attorney Craig Gillen, who represents Bishop Eddie Long, said his client “adamantly denies the allegations in these two lawsuits and it is unfortunate that these two young men have chosen to take this course of action.”

While Bishop Eddie Long likely cannot be charged with a crime in Georgia because the men consented, he could faces charges in other states, Bernstein said. The sex acts occurred while the men were between the ages of 16 and 20, the suit alleges.
