Controversial Pastor Eddie Long crowned 'King of Israelites' by a Rabbi

This is a weird one......


Eddie Long, the controversial pastor of a Georgia-based megachurch, was anointed 'king' in a ceremony that has outraged some Jewish community leaders, the Associated Press reported.

The video, filmed at a service at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, shows Messianic preacher Rabbi Ralph Messer instructing two men to wrap Long in a Torah. Then, Long is seated in a chair, covered in a prayer shawl while holding the sacred scroll and lifted by four men.

"He now is raised up from a commoner to a kingship," Messer says in the video, as the men walk Long's seat through the crowd.

The story then reminds us of Long's charges of 'coercing' several young men into sexual relationships, and other harassment charges at his Megachurch.
