    Bishop Eddie Long is taking the advice of legal team and keeping quiet on allegations of sexual misconduct made against him.
     
    Eddie, the leader of the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, abruptly canceled his scheduled interview with CNN’s Ronald S. Martin for the "Tom Joyner Morning Show" this morning. The scheduled chat was regarding the sexual misconduct allegations brought against him.
     
    In one of the Bishop’s posts on Twitter, which was immediately erased, he said,"The lawyers have made the decision that due to the third lawsuit that Bishop not to do interviews."
     
    This comes after the discovery of the third young man who came forth Wednesday night with more allegations of sexual abuse.
     
    Jamal Parris, 23, claims Eddie gave him his personal cell phone number two weeks after their first meeting. He said that Eddie preferred that he call him "Daddy", since Jamal’s own father had not been a positive influence in his life.
     
    Jamal also stated that he joined New Birth in 2001 and became the bishop’s personal assistant. The lawsuit, filed yesterday, charges that Eddie asked Jamal to remain in his private office after church services, which was where the sexual misconduct took place. The young man indicated that when he left the church he later discovered other guys in the congregation who said they, too, had sexual relationships with the bishop.
     
    Along with Jamal, Anthony Flagg and Maurice Murray Robinson–two others who previously came forth previously–have all reportedly had individual experiences of "quality time" with the Eddie. Supposedly, that includes venturing off on trips, sharing rooms with the church elder, and engaging in touching and oral sex with him. All three of the young men were in a group called the "Spiritual Sons."
     
    Attorney B.J. Bernstein has also reported that there are other victims that will soon emerge in the near future.
