 This supposed "exorcist" has come out in support of a woman who is a known criminial con artist, a woman who has threatened to kill people, a woman who has constantly lied about everything she can think of in order to scam people out of hard earned money while she sits on her butt and refuses any real work.

He also has put together some sort of spiritual convention where he claims there will be thousands of visitors to vendors and this is upcoming.  The vendors will be highly disappointed to see no visitors and no return on their investments.

So he I feel has begun to learn at the feet of Melissa Bryan, top scammer from New Mexico, and has decided to cheat people to make a living instead of following the true path he spouts he follows.

Beware of Bishop James Lone, beware of his spiritual event and beware of him as a person because he clearly is not anywhere near as spiritual as he claims he is.

Evidence James Long is a Fraud

AUTHOR: Ezekiel Wrage - (USA)

POSTED: Tuesday, November 10, 2015

 In order for a church to legally ordain and license ministers they must have a charter with the state they are operating in. In 2008 James Long filed articles of incorporation with the Commonwealth of Kentucky, however, in 2009 he neglected to file an annual report. This lack on his part forced the Secretary of State of the Commonwealth of Kentucky to file a "certificate of dissolution" making James Long's The United States Old Catholic Church to become legally "inactive" and removing the USOCC church charter. James Long and his fellow ministers of USOCC are in fact "not" legally ordained nor legally licensed as everyone can see from the link provided: https://app.sos.ky.gov/ftshow/(S(jmkeyegghqgn5lfapmitthck))/default.aspx?path=ftsearch&id=0712977&ct=09&cs=99999 Since the charter is no more Long is entitled "legally" to inform his donors that donations are "not" tax deductible under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code. However, he does not, allowing his donors to be set up for audit should the IRS discover donors of USOCC are filing their donations as a tax deduction. Hard evidence by the Commonwealth of Kentucky that James Long is indeed a fraud.

Daniel Rumanos exposed fake "Bishop" James Long

I hear magician/illusionist Daniel Rumanos exposed "Bishhop" James Long as a fraud a while back. Rumanos has done several chat show appearances about it, to which Long responded, as here, in as very hateful, un-Christlike manner.

James Long the truth

AUTHOR: truth be told - (USA)

POSTED: Saturday, May 02, 2015

Here is the thing, James Long is not a Catholic Bishop!  Any and all schismatic break aways are not valid.  Yes there are many variations that exist in the Catholic Church, but the USOCC is not one of them!  The old catholic church, the true old catholic church does not nor would ever validate him and his so called church.  They claim Dominus Iesus from 2000, if you know that this means canonical churches with a realtionship with the holy see, not the indepdent movement!  The movement is a joke and anyome that strays away from the true church is committing a mortal sin, save your soul and get away from this man.  They use a luthern church and do not even have their own buidling.  So is it ok to attack him, YES he is not clergy!  He did the shows at Bobby Mackeys and did not receive money, however a real priest would never have completed the blessings on TV, this is not something a real exorcist would do.  Also he told a group during a public investigation that he was not supposed to conjure and he did anyways which is reckless.  In googling your name I see at least to two agencies that represent you like genesis.  I am mortified even further that you claim not to do this for the money and fame, please read the profile.  Also you have listed in every place your story!  Please tell them why you decided to leave the seminary, and not hide behind the truth, you're a FAKE.  

And finally the paranormal clergy is a joke, you claim to be a catholic bishop, when would a valid bishop associate with windtalkers and non denominational ministers, whom are not properly ordained within proper holy orders, they cannot perform the proper catholic rites.  Come on this is histerical!  And for all of the haters that will respond to this article, you don't know him and I laugh when these people are like I have know him for a long time (4 Years).  This is comical...  Quit riding the coattail hoping for fame, if you believe in Jesus, goto the true church of Jesus Christ which is a Western or Eastern Church that is Canonical, not some poser.

Bishop Long's REAL Work in the Community

AUTHOR: Researcher - ()

POSTED: Thursday, May 22, 2014

Bishop Long's REAL work in the community may surprise the complainant who wrote Ripoff Report.

Conrary to his belief, I've never in all my years of listening to Bishop Long speak or reading anything he has written claim to be a psychic. As a matter of fact, if you notice, his name is Bishop James Long, Archbishop, to be precise with the Old Catholic Church.

Just where is there a business in the Ripoff Report where someone suffered some type of damage? Bishop Long is the one that is suffering damages due to the erroneous "facts" posted here.

Bishop Long did precisely what any person called into the ministry is supposed to do. He assisted a person in need. It was reported that this woman was beaten by her husband and needed pastoral care. He assisted, plain and simple.

As for the Spiritual Expo, how doe the writer of the original note know whether or not any vendors were going to have attendees to sell to? The event as of this writing and other rebuttals posted hasn't even happened yet! What I do know for a FACT, is that Bishop Long GAVE AWAY literally hundreds of tickets, and I happen to hold two of them myself. Other people I know also happen to hold some of those FREE tickets. It is a weekend of teaching, fellowship, and yes, there are vendors there - but the event has not even happened YET! It is being promoted everywhere. I know many, many people that are going! Many that are everyday people that are interested in spiritual growth, learning about other faiths and religions as the doors are open for all and yes - learning more about the paranormal. 

Bishop Long has a stellar reputation among those in the paranormal community. He has become a source for us when we need information about matters we may need clarification on or for many people they just may not understand when encountering different types of phenomena.

Where is the proof that Bishop Long has harmed this woman or the male counterpart involved in the original note? Where is the proof that the person who wrote the letter was somehow damaged or experienced some type of financial loss or their reputation was compromised? There is none. Where is there a bonafide business that Bishop Long operated under that justifed having his name in Ripoff report to begin with? Where is the Sole Proprietership, Corporatation or even LLC that Bishop Long operated under that justified his name being drug into this sham of a company? There is none.

However under the guise the First Ammendment Ripoff Report has thrown Bishop Long's name onto this sham of a site and for about $2000.00, he can have this claim "arbitrated," but never will his name be totally cleared really. Why? Because Google makes money off his name, and if Ripoff Report keeps his name on their list, they literally split the profit any time someone looks up Bishop Long's name and there is a click someone does on the link.

The Complaintant here on Ripoff Report goes by the name "Truther." Well, Truther, I would suggest you do a little research before you make false allegations against good, honest people - especially about ones who do the work for Christ and really don't have the "businesses" you think they have or the psychic gifts you claim they have.

I may or may not be psychic but I see a future of Ripoff Report and companies like this finally being forced to change their ways with legislation. Good, honest people and businesses will not tolerate their names, businesses and reputations being ruined so one can hide behind a computer and profit. People will ban together and force changes. At the very least we will see people like "Truther" and the owner of this sham of a website be forced to face the people they have harmed and will restitution on way or another will be given to those who have been harmed... even if it just means retractions and shutting this site down. But it sure would be nice to see the millions the owner of this site made be divvied up to INDIVIDUALS and Mom & Pop shops that couldn't afford the extortion fees that the site owner charges and I'm guessing profits on as well.

This report is false!!!!

AUTHOR: Truther is a joke - ()

POSTED: Wednesday, May 21, 2014

 

To Whom It May Concern:

 

After reading this report I fail to see how this contributor to the rip off report shows any valid reason as to why Arch Bishop James long is even mentioned.  Obviously this report is about a woman who has allegedly scammed people out of their money and for no apparent reason; the Bishop has been brought into the fray.  I have been friends and have known the Bishop for well over four years.  In no time have I ever witnessed this man of God try to sell anything for personal gain or profit.  On the contrary he heads a ministry that serves the homeless by feeding and clothing them throughout the year.  He is always involved in charities and spreading the word of God through his ministry.  If you ask me, this report is more about a personal vendetta against the woman mentioned but this individual decided to throw in Bishop James Long’s name maliciously and for no apparent reason.  Also, how does the future success or failure of a Spiritual Expo of which Bishop Long’s reasons for even hosting are not in an attempt to make any personal financial gains when the reasons for this Spiritual Expo he is hosting is, in essence, to reach out in good will and bring spiritual unity among all faiths?  How does this constitute a rip off and a report that is mainly about a woman that the contributor obviously has issues with and by which the report fails to point out his association to this woman?  This report also fails to show how Bishop supported this woman and how he helped her allegedly scam people out of their hard earned money.  I think it is only ethical that this report be removed immediately based off of allegations of the woman mentioned that have yet to be proven as factual and the fact that this report fails to elaborate on Bishop Long’s connection and support to this woman.

 

Respectfully;

Truther is a joke

#10 REBUTTAL Owner of company

This is the 2nd attempt to file a rebuttal on this slanderous report

AUTHOR: Bishop James Long - ()

POSTED: Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Let's see if the 2nd time works.  

So a completely anonymous person who goes by the name "Truther" chose to write a slanderous and erroneous article against me and the only real course of action that I have been told that I can take is write a rebuttal.  Of course, I could also pay for a service to refute the article and I find that to be quite odd.  

So this "Truther" coward chose to attack me because I happened to offer spritual counseling to a woman who had been hit by her husband.  Wow.  And what is even more interesting is that the owner of this website has chosen to use the lame excuse that the "complaint is a permanent record."  That is very interesting and shameful.  

First, "Truther" is clearly a coward.  Any person who hides behind their keyboard and files a complaint against someone and then hides behind the "anonymous" identity is the lowest form of a coward.  If I filed a complaint against someone, I would have the courage and fortitude to show my true identity but we cannot expect that from a simple mental twit like "Truther."

Secondly, this "Truther" has placed me in the category of psychic.  That is truly odd and rather interesting.  You see, I have never claimed to be psychic and well, I am not.  So, to place me in a catergory that doesnt even fit my proifle shows the lack of intelligence on the person who originated the post in the first place.  

Now I find it very suspicious that the owner of this website claims to want to protect the general public from con-artists.  And yet, this owner allows anyone to post slanderous comments against the innocent and furthemore, the owner offers no validation on the reports submitted.  

Now the owner states that they are not responsible for 3rd party comments or submissions but that is not true at all.  This website filters through the complaints and they CHOOSE which complaint is posted on their site.  Therefore, they ARE contributors to slanderous reports.  

I also find it odd that the owner would allow this post to remain by this "Truther" person because I would think that NO man would attack clergy for offering pastoral counseling to a woman who had just been hit by her husband.  But oddly enough, the post remains.  

As far as the Spiritual Expo is concerned, its a spiritual retreat.  Furthermore, we have given away 220 weekend passes!  yes, we have GIVEN THEM AWAY!  That is a total of $7,800 worth of passes that we have given to the public.  Now why would we do such a thing because according to this mental twit "Truther" I am only concerned with having thousands of people there.  

Welll, yeah, I would love to have thousands of people there because I believe in Spiritual Retreats.  And if it takes giving away MORE passes to get people to attend, I will do that as well.  We are NOT doing this for money.  We have proven that by the passes that we have given away for free.  So "Truther" perhaps you should find the "TRUTH" and get on your knees and ask God for forgiveness for attacking an innocent clergy!  But that would require a conscience.  Something that I hardly think you have.  

So, again, I ask that the owner remove "Truthers" post.  I know that it wont be removed because I am not paying for it!  If the owner is content with knowing that an innocent clergy member has been attacked for offering pastoral counseling to a woman who had just been beat by her husband, then perhaps one needs to look at this website for what it is.  Exortion.

What are you talking about?

AUTHOR: The Real Truther - ()

POSTED: Wednesday, May 21, 2014

 I saw in this persons report that they say that Bishop Long, is a "psychic" he has never claimed to be so! The man is an Exorcist and a Bishop with the Old American Catholic Church! And as far as him "coming to the support of" this woman, That is what Clergy Does! Haven't you watched Movies/Documentaries about people on death row and other crimes? Even if this woman did the things you report, Clergy still offers councel. And this... spiritual expo he is putting on... How can you say noone will show? I know for a FACT there will be ALOT of people there, because Bishop Long is one of THE most respected individuals in the Paranormal Field. I think it is SAD that someone like YOU claims to be a TRUTHER and you do not even know what you are talking about. You have been personally ATTACKING bishop for months through emails and phone calls, Threatening him, you are a sad individual and you need help.

Spirituality of Bishop James Long

AUTHOR: lwanzo - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, May 20, 2014

 You claim that Bishop Long is not a spiritual person because he supported and comforted a woman who allegedly lied to and threatened some people.  She had stated that she was mistreated by her husband and he comforted her because of that.   Yet you claim it was not spiritual behavior ,but was wrong of him.  I'd like to know how spirituality is measured because I need to know how to quantify this behavior.

Also, I would like to know what the punishment is for comforting a person that is having something bad happen to them.  You also stated that the vendors at the Spiritual Expo will be disappointed when they don't have anyone show up to buy their merchandise. If you are a psychic and have "seen" this happen, please tell us what else will be happening that day.  Because if you know, then I would like to have some lottery numbers.

If you are unable to state exactly where you got this information, then I have to question the validity of your statements.  Also, I would like to know how long you have know the Bishop, and how closely you have witnessed his behavior.  Have you observed him over a period of days, months, or years?  I need data to provide a convincing case for your statements.  Otherwise, I have to say that they seem to be false.  Statements without proof are just that, statements.  You are free to state your opinions, but you know what they say about opinions.  Everyone has them.  Public figures receive more than their share of misplaced hatred.  I feel that in this case, it is entirely unwarrented.  I have met the man, talked to him extensively, heard him lecture, and seen his interactions with others for about 2 years now.  I have never heard him say or do anything that was not of a spiritual nature.  I know this is just my opinion, but I have years of interactions to back up my statements as well as dozens of witnesses.  

The fact that he was kind to a person who was hurt in spite of her reputation speaks volumes on his behalf.  More people should act this way and the world would be a better place.   I think that may be all I have to say on the matter.

Bishop James Long

AUTHOR: Rusty Woehrle - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Bishop Long is a wonderful man.    He was simply doing what clergy men do and counsuling a woman who supposedly was hit by her husband after having a fight with her husband.    If this is not true, Bishop Long had no way of knowing that.

As for the event he is planning the vendors will not be disappointed because there will me many, many, many, many visitors to this event.

Bishop Long has an excellent reputation, you can ask anyone he knows.   This Truther person is a liar and has been threating Bishop Long ever since he counsuled that woman who claimed her husband hit her.

Bishop Long has helped many, many people whether they needed spiritual help or paranormal help or any other kind of help.    He is a good, kind, caring, wonderful man.

This is an unfounded, without proof, out right lie of an attack on Bishop Long.   He is a very spiritual man.

False report on Bishop James Long

AUTHOR: Wayne - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, May 20, 2014

I have read the report on Bishop James Long and believes that the person writing the original report has no clue what so ever anything about Bishop Long. Bishop Long follows the word of God and councels people of all walks of life (like it says in the Bible to do) 

                                                   Bishop Long is not a fake and is one of the most genuine people I know and have had the pleassure to be associated with. He will go out of his way to emotionally support anyone in need as God has asked of him to do. He is doing Gods will. Bishop Long is exactly who he has always claimed to be.

                                                    The person who wrote this article obviously is angered at the woman who Bishop Long was trying to comfort so this indivisual lashes out to attack Bishop Long and who ever was willing to help her, and with no merrit. In the Bible it talks of when Jesus walked the land, He helped a prostitute, a thief and a murderer. Does this mean that Jesus was a bad person, I think not and Bishop long was only doing the work that God set him out to do.

How dare this person, that makes such ridiculous accusations on a friend of the world.  Bishop , has counseled many people, and I am most surely it does not matter if the person has or had been a criminal.  As a catholic Priest..it is ones mission to help people..he does not discriminate. Also...about the Spiritual Expo that ihas been built for every spiritual person...many will be there...by his side...helping to bring the spirituality to many. The attack of the person who has made this report...does not know Bishop at all...and is an over exaggerating , hateful person , with nothing better to do , than to attack a man of the cloth...and a man who is willing to help anybody that comes forth in need.  in that being said... I believe that this rip off report, be taken down...for the sake of the truth. The person who has made the report is slanderous..and is making your site...look very unprofessional , for not doing a correct investigation first.

Bishop Long is an ordained Bishop in the Catholic Church

AUTHOR: Tim Ryan - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Bishop James Long is an ordained Bishop in the Old Catholic Church.  He is not now, nor has he ever claimed to be a psychic.  He is a demonologist as well as being a Bishop.  He has several degrees and has devoted his entire life to serving our Lord.

 

He is most certainly above reproach in all matters. He is a man of God; and in no way does he ripoff ANYONE. I can not say the same for the original poster. Only the original poster knows his motivations for filing this report; but I can 100% assure you that they are, at best, incorrect.

 

I, and many thousands of other folks, can clearly vouch for the Bishop's authenticity, devotion to God, and love for everyone.  He certainly can not be accused of profiting from his relationship with God in any monetary way. 

 

This report is, in my opinion, an egregious mis-use of the purpose for this wonderful resource. I seriously advise a full investigation into this person's reasons and ulterior motives for even filing such an offensive report. Bishop Long's integrity is beyond reproach in every way. He is a man of the cloth in every possible sense of the word.

 I do not who put this up about the Bishop. But first of all shame on you. Bishop James Long is a good man of God. He is not a fraud and i am appaled that this was even said. He is a very well respected member of the community and he helps anyone who needs. As far as what you claim this lady did is not concern of mine. She was hit by a vicious man. So Bishop was able to council with her and reached out in good faith as any normal human being would. You need to remove this slanderous report about Bishop James Long, you do not know him, you know nothing about him or his life or who he is. And the blatten disgrgaurd for a Priest is appaling and disgusting. No one should be able to come on here and trash anthor person and slander them. You owe Bishop LOng and apologie. I doubt you will because you seem to be full of hate and anger. You need to take a look in the mirror and fix what is wrong with and get on your knees and ask God to forgive you for lying and slandering a man who has selflessly served God and help others. What have you done with your life?

Slander and defamation without legitimacy

AUTHOR: OASIS Founder - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, May 20, 2014

I have read through this report, and I am truly having a hard time grasping how or where any indication of consumer rip-off has occurred, or what specific complaint is being made. To me, this report indicates nothing but the desire to illegitimately slander someone without proof or example on how, who, or what has been cheated out of any sort of investment on their part.

Bishop Long is a trusted and loved member of the clergy, everything which Bishop Long does - is in service of God and does not expect, ask for, or require payment for such services. This would also mean, that the person being ripped off must have something intangible to complain about.

Consumer reports are created to warn others of money scams, and those things which damage the good name of other businesses trying to conduct themselves appropriately. I fail to see how complaints of this nature are allowed to be on sites that claim good creditability to their domain.

Thank you

Slanderous and full of lies - the slanderous comments needs to be removed immediately!

AUTHOR: Bishop James Long - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, May 20, 2014

First and foremost, the Spiritual Expo that "Truther" is speaking about is located in Louisville, KY.  Furthermore, this "Truther" states I have said that there will be thousands of visitors.  

1.  I have never made such a statement
2.  We have given away 225 weekend passes which totaled of $7,875.  We have GIVEN them away!   

Our Spiritual Expo is more of a retreat than anything.  We are NOT worried with the amount of people who show up.  Rather, we are more concerned that those who do, will find the spiritual expo spiritually rewarding.  

Secondly, you attack me because I support Melissa Bryan.  "Truther" I find you to be a very sad individual.  You have been emailing me constantly with threatening emails about our Spiritual Expo and have DEMANDED that I publicly deny any friendship with Melissa Bryan.  

First, what kind of coward hides behind their computer and threatens clergy?  What kind of cowards hides behind their keyboard and tries to blackmail clergy because I happen to be friends with someone that you do not like?  You have made several threatening comments against me and the Spiritual Expo and yet, you are allowed to spew your cowardly ignorance on a website that is supposed to be for those who have legitimate complaints.  

Your complaint is that I am friends with someone that you dont like.  Well, my advice to you would be to graduate from Kindergarten and then come speak to me as an adult.  I am truly shocked that this website would allow you to publish your hateful comments all because I happen to be friends with someone that you do not like.  

And allow me to expand on something.  "Truther" you began to attack me because why?  Melissa Bryan was going through some VERY emotional and difficult times.  You have repeatedly attacked her publicly and you continue to send her threatening emails and it got to a point where she and her husband got into a terrible fight and he hit her.  This is all public information, as she has written it on her facebook page.  

Now, as Clergy, what did I do?  I told her that things will be ok and that no man has a right to hit a woman and that I am sorry that she was going through that.  Since I did that, "Truther" you have become sickenly obsessedd with getting my attention by sending me hateful emails and now, you have reported a fallacious report on this website.  

1.  I am asking that this website remove "Truther" as a user.  You are obviously too cowardly to tell the world who you are but you have keyboard courage, dont you?  You like to attack others but you are too much of a coward to tell us who you are.  That is prety pathetic.  

2.  Slanderous comments made against me will not be tolerated.  Should this continue, I will seek legal action.  I am not the type of person that simply makes idle threats.  I am giving you a final warning.  

You will not use media outlets to slander my name, the Church or a Spiritual Expo in which 220 weekend passes have been given out for free.  

If you have something to say to me, stop sending anonymous emails and be an adult.  Contact me directly and we will discuss our differences.  However, I am sure that you will not be able to comply with common sense.
