Deion Sanders is urging everyone to ignore Eddie Long’s sordid past and honor him in his death.
The former NFL player left a lengthy message on his Instagram in honor of the preacher who passed away after battling an aggressive form of cancer. In his message, Deion calls for us all to “refrain from any ignorance or judgment” of his “dear friend.”
He also calls Eddie a “fatherly” figure in his life. In case you forget, Eddie also took on the fatherly role with the young men he sexually coerced.
I offer my sincere condolences to the Long family,@newbirthmbc,@mobeast1,Chris and all that had a opportunity to meet this incredible man. Bishop Long guided me spiritually and was THERE thru turbulent times in my life. He always had positive & kind words to offer. He was generous,kind,caring and Fatherly to me. I'm gonna miss him tremendously. He would always call to encourage,motivate and make sure I was good. Also he's 1 of the most powerful pastors I've EVER heard minister the Gospel. Please refrain from any ignorance or judgement of my Bishop and dear friend. This ain't the time for foolishness. Those that really know me know that I Love Bishop Eddie Long to Life. #Truth @RevJahwar
What do you think? Does Deion need to STFU?
