Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Bishop Eddie Long has released a statement in response to two of the men involved with the sexual misconduct case brought against the New Birth Missionary Baptist church pastor.

As we previously reported, despite Long vowing to fight the chages the case was settled out of court for an undisclosed sum, but accusers Jamal Parris and Spencer LeGrande have decided to risk losing their settlement money by speaking to media about the case and their ordeal.

From New Birth’s web site:

New Birth Members,

We have a long history of dutifully serving those in need in the local and global communities and we will continue to do so. We are committed to the calling of a strong, viable and relevant ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Unfortunately, we are in the media again and people are wondering what I am going to say. All I have to say is what we stated earlier. All parties involved decided to resolve the civil cases out of court. The decision was made to bring closure to this matter and allow us to move forward with the plans God has for this ministry.

I will continue to honor and abide by my commitment of confidentiality and restraint as it relates to the resolution of the civil litigation and will not be diverted from the important work of the ministry.

I thank God for your faithful support of my journey to South Africa where thousands where blessed and more than 700 people gave their lives to Christ. We also were able to sow more support into the HIV/AIDS Hospice in Johannesburg that we partnered with last year. We built a wonderful bridge of relationships with pastors and community leaders to further establish the Kingdom and bless others.

I love you and thank you for your continued commitment and dedication.

Your Pastor,

Bishop Eddie L. Long
