his sexual misconduct case out of court in order to avoid trial one source says Eddie Long
's New Birth Missionary Baptist Church
may be at its wits end with the embattled bishop, according to a report by NewsOne
The source in NewsOne's
investigation cites three proofs (“strikes”) as to why New Birth may soon find itself in uncharted water.
The first indication, according to the report is church elders are leaving and turning their backs on Long citing the recent resignation of Bernice King
, Martin Luther King Jr.'s youngest daughter.
The reports says her removal signifies that many other senior members in the church will soon follow suit.
The second indication according to NewsOne's
source is that the revenue in the church has plummeted “forcing the church to make drastic cutbacks.
” The source says the church has let go two full-time employees and cut salaries by 10 percent because of this reduction in ‘love offerings.'
The third and final straw,according to the church source is Bishop Long's total lack of humility saying the Bishop's inability to own up to his wrongs or even acknowledge them is, “an example of his complete arrogance.”
Members are growing weary of his games, the source implies.
“Now there are a whole bunch of people trying to figure out what their place is, what's going to happen to the church and what's going to happen to them,”
the church source noted.
, Bishop Eddie L Long reportedly agreed to an eight figure settlement in order to avoid trial in the sexual coercion case brought against him by four former male members.
