When I first met Lynn Littlejohn, it was after Rev Eddie Long was going through his ordeal (I'm not going to say it here, however if you're interested, google or bing it. I thought she was his X wife, however she wasn't. She was somebody else's ex wife. She was on YOUTUBE. You have to check out her channel, she has over a million views to her channel and more. She has written a couple of books. pastorsexwife.org tells the story.
If you want the true, this is where you get it. She is open and honest - she's lived a spicy life and she is willing to share it. If you don't like the truth but are willing to sneak and get it, COME 'ROUND HERE (Smokey Robinson) She tells it like it is, and she doesn't bite her tongue. This is the way religion should be.
