Bishop Eddie Long, who was accused last year of coercing four young men into sexual relationships, is taking a leave of absence from his role as the leader of a Georgia megachurch after his second wife filed for divorce.
Whatever the specifics, the two were in a relationship that produced an heir, Constantine, around the year 272 CE.
They remained together for at least 15 years, but in 289 CE Constantius, who was Roman Emperor Caesar, divorced Helena to enter into a politically advantageous marriage with a younger woman, Theodora, who was the stepdaugher of Maximian, Roman Emperor Augustus at the time.
In an unusual chain of events, the bishop’s wife Vanessa initially filed the divorce papers Thursday and made a public announcement saying so Friday morning; she then announced that she withdrew the request hours later, only to have her lawyer announce that she was in fact going through with the divorce Saturday.
White's Chicago-born husband made a name for himself in the music industry playing with the bands Bad English and Journey.
Mr Long has another son from his first marriage which ended in divorce.
In those court filings, Mr Long accused his first wife Dabara Houston of having a ‘violent and vicious temper’.
It is important to note that at issue here is not only a Catholic’s own personal,, visible status in the Church, that may be known by other members of the faithful as well.
The Church is therefore concerned simultaneously with three different, although interrelated issues: (a) an individual Catholic’s personal spiritual wellbeing; (b) the need to maintain reverence toward the Most Holy Eucharist; and (c) the need to avoid public scandal.
