Eddie Long, New Birth and Religious Idolatry

PSA:  New Birth Missionary Baptist Church needs to be checked for toxic fumes.

Idolatry: excessive or blind adoration, reverence, devotion, etc.

In my opinion it's no secret that there is something wrong with Eddie Long and the cult followers congregation of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.  This video is proof that sanity doesn't exist among the people that participated in this ridiculous spectacle.  It is horrifying to me that anyone could sit in those pews while Eddie Long and all of his minions proceeded to hold this mockery of epic proportions. 

Is it me or is Eddie Long eerily similar to not one but two other "religious leaders" whose followers met unfortunate ends.  There is no way that someone can tell me that the people at New Birth are not at risk.  They sat in those pews watching this despicable and ridiculous person have himself basted in adoration!  Where is God in this?  These people need to open their eyes and see that there is nothing right about what is taking place in that den of the foolish.

Religion has been used to control people and the ones that are controlled by the contemptible among them will suffer horrible consequences because they willingly allow themselves to be at the mercy of people that mean to do them harm.  I grew up in the church and I believe that the way that predatory and opportunistic people like Eddie Long and his minions are allowed to go on without reproach is reprehensible.  Faith does not mean that you follow man blindly and it is unfortunate that the congregation at New Birth believe that it does.
