A Statement from Bishop Eddie Long

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 Eddie L. Long addressed his congregation at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church for the first time since four young men (Maurice Robinson, Anthony Flagg, Jamal Parris and Spencer LaGrande) filed a law-suit saying that they were sexually coerced Bishop Long.

Below is the video from today’s service:

Good morning New Birth. And good morning to all our other guests…I do want to remind folk, that we are here at 8, every Sunday morning…And I’ll be here next week… First of all let me thank you on behalf of my wife, my family for all of your support and prayers…I realize that many have been waiting on me to say something.  My first responsibility is to my family, and then my next responsibility is not to address the world before I address my family, New Birth…

He was joined briefly by his wife, Elder Vanessa Long
