Bishop Eddie Long Issues a Statement in Response to Victims Speaking Out

Did we think that he would say anything else? Did we think that he would finally fess up and admit his guilt? Of course not, it is business as usual for him. My concern is for the people that are left at his church. They seemed to not be 'studying to show themselves'. I hope they are not more in love with the man than they are with 'the Man'.

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.
