True Thursdays: Maybe It’s A Good Thing That The Celeb Pastors Are Pedophiles

I know that’s an extremely controversial statement. However, I’ve been doing a little thinking, and all in all I think that the cases being brought against well-known pastors such as Bishop Eddie Long will only lead to positive consequences. Last night, I came across an article on Hip Hop Wired about another Black pastor, who is being accused of pedophilia in Las Vegas. Apparently, Pastor Billy Eckstine McCurdy like Long, who we won’t condemn just yet (I guess…), had inappropriate interactions with young boys in his church. Honestly, I am not surprised by the influx of reports concerning criminal pastors. I do, however, think that the media attention drawn to such stories is a result from the attention surrounding pastors like Eddie Long, whose name is known nationwide. I also think it’s a good thing that people are using a story like Long’s to come forward about their own traumatizing experiences with pastors. The whole situation with Black pastors kind of reminds me of when the Catholic church went under fire only several years ago for its pedophile priests. Once one priest made serious headlines, a slew of others soon followed.

Anyways, this post could go on forever. If you have any thoughts on the matter, I would love to hear them!
