Just days after breaking his long media silence during last weekend’s Trumpet Awards banquet, Bishop Eddie Long has posted an online video to issue a plea about a “financial situation” that occurred to members of his New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.
The Bishop invited some “financial advisers” in to assist it’s members with their retirement funds, and they made some bad investments.
Apparently Long is feelin ‘some kinda way’ and wants to make it all right, so he posted an online video plea…
The members are now alarmed about their decision to trust the Bishop’s suggestion to use the company and according to the press release about the video, members alerted Long “about a troubling investment that could eclipse a million dollars.”
There’s no mention of how many New Birth members bought into the investments, but many have disclosed that they are facing severe financial hardships because of investments that went “sour.”
Long says he decided to make a public appeal via video to aid members in resolving their “dispute with City Capital Corp. and its CEO Ephren Taylor.”
[Sidebar: That Kool-aid at New Birth must be potent as all get out! Not only has their “leader” been accused of sexual misconduct, but he chooses to keep it under wraps by “negotiating” with his accusers behind closed doors. Now, the company he referred to members to manage their retirement funds have run off and aren’t responding? I bet anything Long didn’t invest money in that scam.]
When will y’all see the light over there in Lithonia? It’s blinding the rest of us…
