Finally Bishop Eddie Long has released a statement in regards to the allegations made against him and New Birth. Personally, Im just waiting on God to move in this case and reveal the truth behind all of the allegations againt Bishop Long. Allegations like these are made requently in the Catholic faith and majority of the media is quite silent until the truth is revealed. So..as (black) Christians we should do the same and let God speak. After all...who are we to judge?.......
Bishop Long's Statement
Lithonia, Georgia – September 23, 2010
"I have been through storms and my faith has always sustained me. I am anxious
to respond directly to these false allegations and I will do so. However, my lawyers
have counseled patience at this time. But let me be clear; the charges against me and
New Birth are false. I have devoted my life to helping others and these false allegations
hurt me deeply. But my faith is strong and the truth will emerge. All I ask is for your
patience as we continue to categorically deny each and every one of these ugly charges.
Finally, as I have done for thousands of others over my decades of preaching, I ask for
your prayers for me, my family and our church. On Sunday, at New Birth, I will
respond to my congregation."-Bishop E. Long
