Yeah, this guy

[NEWS FLASH: For the story on Eddie Long’s sexual abuse scandal, visit here. Peace.]

In a dazzling touch of irony, Jay Bakker’s and Soulforce’s media manipulative PR stunt… er, national tour of only five megachurches to create awareness about gay rights in spiritual environments will land at Bishop Eddie Long’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga.

The tour, which has been here and here, will go to Willow Creek and Saddleback after speaking with Long’s staff… because who really thinks Bishop Long is going to be in that meeting anyway.

Why the irony? Long has been a bold advocate against same-sex marriages by leading marches in Atlanta espousing the cause. Now, Soulforce thinks they will find common ground with this guy? Just like with Joel, the press release is currently in the proofreading stages set to hit the wire on Monday
