“Bishop Eddie Long Is Talking Because His Accusers Are”


Jamal Parris, 24, and Spencer Legrande, 23, are speaking out about their experiences with Long, despite signing a confidentiality agreement. And Bishop Eddie Long wasted no time responding to his accusers yesterday.

Apparently, Long’s accusers aren’t happy with the terms of the structured settlement they agreed upon earlier this year. They thought their $2 million settlements spread out over 20 years was a generous amount — until they started spending the cash and discovered that $100,000 doesn’t go a long way when you’re greedy and have extravagant tastes.

In a message to his congregation posted on the church’s website, Long wrote:

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.

He’s an idiot. Luckily for him he’s got a church full of people even more idiotic than he is.

  6. And because he has all those idiots in his church and he settled with those guys which closes the civil case, he should just admit it. Pour his heart out to those idiots in his church and tell them the Lord is helping him get through and exercise those demons from his life. In fact, maybe he should have an exorcism at one of the Sunday services. Do a special service at the football arena. No doubt legions would still follow him and then he would have taken the power from his former lovers.

        Agreed. I also say that there’s a fine line between what’s a judgement and an opinion. In my judgement/opinion most of these churches are out to get paid. There is sooooooooo much homosexuality, greed, fornication, adultery etc. going on in the church. Hell, I can go to the club for all of that. I’ve just been really turned off from the “religious” side of things for these very reasons. It’s rampant in the Catholic church, Baptist, even the damn Mormons have crazy shyt going on. I’m just more into spirituality than religion.

        what you said is true, but we are also told to stay away from evil and those who go against the teachings of Christ and not to even wish them God Speed as it is like cosigning their bad deeds.

        I attend church. However the members I fellowship with are all displaying that they follow the word of God. I’m not with them 24/7, but we are all on one accord spiritually. First and foremost we follow the sabbath on the 7th day. Most Christian churches refuse to go against the tide and hold worship services on the true holy day. That tells me all I need to know there. I am no Jehovah’s witness or Seventh Day Adventist or any of that, but if we can’t follow ten commandments I know it’s not the place for me.

        Ok I’m gone for real this time.

        People tend to believe that one persons comment is directed straight at them and it may be but it also may not be. Again, my opinion WAS NOT directed at all churchgoer’s it was just a general ststement. It’s something I’ve seen in the majority and is my judgement/opinion. LOL

        Understood. And for the record I definitely believe in Good, Jesus, the Holy Spirit…the whole shebang. I’m a Christian (non-denomination) but I’ve been turned off of church for the moment. I think it happens to us all at some point but many are too afraid to admit it but for me it is what it is. I’m not an atheist or devil worshipper. God knows my heart and knows what’s up and he knows why I’m not in church at the moment. I just felt the need to express the way I felt with the SR fam.

        For the average person just confessing to God should be enough, but he is a man of the cloth, which means he is held MORE accountable for his actions…this is stated in the bible. Thus, if he is maintaining an image as though nothing went on with these boys, when indeed it did, his congregation has a right to know who is leading them. I’m not saying that he OWES anything to them, but he likely needs to step down if he doesn’t want to address it any further…it’s too much of a distraction…

  20. NBCI and The Black Church
    Are Embarrassed By Bishop Eddie Long
    Sanctions Should Be Imposed On Bishop Long For Abuse
    Washington DC – The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches
    comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans, is outraged that Bishop Eddie Long has
    settled his sexual abuse case out of court. The accusations of the four teenage boys in this case are too serious to
    not be brought to light – Bishop Long himself even asserted that he would fight the case to prove his innocence.
    The truth was not illuminated. Justice was not achieved.
    Despite the fact that Bishop Long is not an NBCI member, we monitor the behavior of all clergy as it reflects on
    the Church as a whole. Christian leaders must set an example of the moral code preached to the faithful – abuse
    cannot be tolerated. This case, combined with the decades of scandals within the Catholic Church, tarnishes the
    reputation of the Church. Pope Benedict XVI has admitted that “the greatest persecution of the church doesn’t
    come from enemies on the outside but is born from the sin within the church.” The Protestant Church cannot
    afford to experience the same breach of trust, scandalous abuse of power and lack of transparency. Bishop Long’s
    refusal to adjudicate this case in the court system is a glaring illustration of guilt – one that the church cannot
    afford to endorse.
    Rev. Anthony Evans, President of NBCI says, “”NBCI does not hesitate to condemn clergy who abuse the trust
    given to them by their parishioners. We have worked diligently to partner with organizations to prevent abuse and
    counsel the abused – SNAP, the Survivors Network for those Abused by Priests, is doing particularly good work to
    protect those abused by the faith-based community. We de-fellowship Bishop Long and his church for three years
    for condoning this behavior – we can ill afford to allow abusers in the House of God. His position, after time,
    should be restored by members of his congregation.”
    About NBCI
    The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI) is a coalition of 34,000 African American and Latino churches working to
    eradicate racial disparities in healthcare, technology, education, housing, and the environment. NBCI’s mission is to provide
