We would presume that all of the world and some were anticipating the address of the allegations of sexual coercion of four men and a fifth non-confirmed young man against Bishop Eddie Long.
While tuning into the services this morning at 8am, we documented the service and his address/mini sermon. The church was unusually full with attendance of probably every member, ex-member, press agents and the like to hear what Bishop Long would say after the horrendous allegations coming against him.
This is how it went in order or events:
AT2W’s Thoughts: What Really Pushed Bernice King out of New Birth?
We were just thinking about how Bishop Long’s church membership has went down but furthermore how staff have left the church namely Elder Bernice King. Some revelations came to us about what may have really went on and why Bernice King left at that particular time.
Now, if we go back, we can come up with a list that will show the accounts that transpired:
The View’s Sherri Shepherd Says A Mouthful on Bishop Long Settlement
We found this video of comedienne and host Sherri Shepherd of “The View” show and found it interesting how she gives a literal mouthful on her thoughts of Bishop Eddie Long and the recent private and sealed settlement that was resolved in mediation.
The first 2 minutes shows how she goes in on Bishop Long. We are not fans of Sherri Shepherd but she said some things we all may have wanted to say. Actually, we have probably said all this and some here at AT2W! LOL!

Bishop Long Statement on Elder Bernice King
Reverend Bernice King has made tremendous and profound contributions to New Birth as an Elder and faithful servant of our Lord Jesus Christ.
For some time now, Reverend King and I have been in discussion and prayer about the call of God on her life to continue the legacy of her father and mother, the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King. This is a compelling mandate that places Reverend King squarely in the center of God’s Will for her life and I am in full support of her decision to leave New Birth in pursuit of this worthy endeavor.
Bernice King Says ‘New Birth Was For a Season’, Will Start New Ministry
Rev. Bernice King was interviewed on Atlanta’s Praise 102.5 with host Rhodell Lewis on Tuesday. The interview was a bit disappointing as the station played more music than the interview but we received what most of you want to know about her leaving New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.
Firstly, she announced that she wanted everyone to trust what she will be saying and to ‘take her word’ for what she would state. She said she chose this forum because for 8 months she has been on this show with Praise 102.5’s Rhodell Lewis and she trust its audience.

From news reports we stated earlier, Bernice King made her last appearance at New Birth Church on Sunday’s 11 a.m. service as she was seen giving alter call.
