*Bishop Eddie Long returned to the pulpit on Sunday in royal fashion.

For his Jan. 29th service at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, where he took a leave of absence late last year in the wake of child molestation allegations, Bishop Long featured a Rabbi, Ralph Messer, who spoke at length about why Long is a “king.”

Presenting what he claimed were 300-year-old sacred scrolls discovered some 70 years ago outside a concentration camp in Germany, Messer pronounced Eddie Long as king in “God’s government.”

To illustrate the point, Long’s aides lift him in his chair, which doubles as a throne, and carry him around the stage.
