A Stunt? Bishop Eddie Long Gets a Huge Wad of Green from An Unidentified Female Parishioner

Know what I think? I think that it was staged. At times, pastors use tactics like this to spur more offerings or to insure the loyalty of parishioners. Handsome traveling preachers stopping by, or in the case of cults, faith healing (Jim Jones was good with this kind of thing), or a big wad of green from an “anonymous” donor plopped into the hands of the pastor.
The young woman looks very calm and quiet. Perhaps too calm. I kept looking to see her expression as the church erupted. She may have begun weeping; at least, that’s what I think. The top of her head seemed to tremble. Really, though, she was hidden by all the people around her, or she had scrunched down so that she wouldn’t be seen.
I see Long isn’t opening up that wad, either. I wonder whether it’s real money or money from a color photo copier. Or just a stack of one-dollar bills.
If it wasn’t staged, the unidentified young woman will never see that money again.
