This allegation is common among for victims of clergy sexual abuse. Abusers use the bible as a means of justify all manner of sexual activity. Bishop Eddie long is alleged to have used this tactic.
Robinson is clear in his complaint that Bishop Eddie Long wasn’t just a middle aged man taking cellphone pictures of himself and allegedly pursuing young men in his lyra bike shorts, at the same time. Rather Robinson claims Eddie Long engaged in fraud, using the “Scriptures” “of the Lord” and his authority as Bishop to deceive Robinson, causing Robinson to believe that the conduct was justified by the Bible.
I don’t think anyone is surprised here. I sure Bishop Eddie Long thought as anointed by God or some such nonsense. He would have used anything to justify special treatment (also a trait of abusers)
