Earl Paulk and Bishop Eddie Long seem to have a lot more in common than the fact that they were both heads of a church. A new report says that Earl Paulk was a spiritual mentor to Bishop Eddie Long as he was growing with the church. As for what “spiritual mentor” means, sources say that Paulk was like a father to Long in many ways. Paulk, who died last year, was an evangelical mega church leader accused of having sex with many women in his congregation including his brother’s wife and his own granddaughter, and least 4 young men who were members of his church. Long vehemently denies the allegations, although he’s not yet personally stepped forward to defend himself.
