Must admit upfront that I despise televangelists of all stripes. I think they are nothing more than religious hucksters, charlatans, and hypocrites. The latest case in point is the unbelievably narcissistic Bishop Eddie Long who finds himself in the indelicate position of being on the wrong end of lawsuits brought by three young men accusing him of sexual improprieties, no doubt all in the name of the Lord. Among Long's crusades is his unwavering opposition to homosexuality and same-sex marriage. It is almost a given that those who protest too much a certain behavior have the most to hide.
