Armstrong’s book, “Snakes in the Pulpit,” which was written in 2006, talked about the sexual abuse of young boys in the church. The book remained as a best seller for over a year on Essence Magazine’s best seller list. Long was mentioned in the book as one of the men abusing their power and having sexual relations with young boys.
Two youth pastor’s from Bishop Long’s church reached out to Armstrong in 2006, after they witnessed Long’s sexual abuse of the young boys. After writing about this in his book and talking about this at length on his talk show, Armstrong was met with accusations that he was starting rumors.
People are listening now that the four sexual abuse lawsuits have been put in place. You can hear Armstrong’s story HERE in his newest television interview.
