Bishop Eddie Long is facing another firestorm this week after two of his FIVE (yes 5… we can’t forget about Centino Kemp) hit the media this week.
Then Spencer LaGrande joined Parrish for a duel interview, where they spoke about needing some sort of public acknowledgment from the Bishop of his wrongdoings, it was even revealed that they may be planning to pen a tell-all.

STROKE couldn’t help but issue a public statement. Check out Long’s address to the congregation of New Birth below:
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.
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.
Bishop Eddie L. Long
I’m sure New Birth’s congregation was giving Long the serious SIDE-EYE every Sunday, which was why he felt the need to finally speak publicly (somewhat) about those sexual allegations.
Long honestly should have stepped down (or away) from the pulpit, but it doesn’t seem like his ego will allow it.
Is there anything Long could say (or do) at this point to reclaim his reputation?
