I just learned that Bishop Eddie Long has banned Will Jesus Buy Me a Double-Wide? ’cause I need more room for my plasma TV. Zondervan. 2010
Several of my friends wrote to say that’s like a Badge of Honor. I don’t know how that works when 25,000 people are basically forbidden from buying your book.
I wasn’t present but what I’ve heard is that Bishop Long told his people that he wants them to strive for better — he wants them to own triple-wides.
I can understand why Bishop Long would ban the book, given the nature of the book and how I take Bishop Long and Creflo Dollar and others to task, but the book is about so much more than the Prosperity Gospel. It’s stories about everyday people, some who get the God & money thing right and some who don’t.
You’d think Bishop Long would have other things to worry about than banning my book. But I guess he was upset about that post I wrote about him being guilty and all.
