Bishop Eddie Long Settles With Accusers

Bishop Eddie Long, the Georgia megachurch pastor, has reached an out-of-court settlement with the four young men who accused him of sexual abuse, representatives for both sides said Thursday May 26th.

Today B.J. Bernstein, the attorney representing the men, said in a statement that the lawsuits against Long and his church have “been resolved.” Bernstein’s two-paragraph statement said that neither she nor the accusers would talk about the lawsuits “now or in the future.”

Eddie Long did state that he would fight the case because the allegations were false. Art Franklin, a Long spokesman, said Thursday that the pastor settled because it “is the most reasonable road for everyone to travel.”

“This decision was made to bring closure to this matter and to allow us to move forward with the plans God has for this ministry,” Franklin said in a statement.

Am going to stop here, because this is a 'Man of God'. Remember the famous bible quote "Touch not my Anointed, and do my prophet no harm"
