Another high profile minister is weighing in on the Bishop Eddie Long scandal. Bishop Paul S. Morton has decided to make a public plea to Eddie Long. He wants him to show remorse or repent publicly so that the healing can begin.
Bishop Eddie Long is rumored to have settled with the 4 plaintiffs accusing him of sexual mis-conduct for either 15 or 25 million dollars. Morton joins a growing list of ministers speaking out on the issue. Mega-Church Pastor Creflo Dollar came out in support of Bishop Eddie Long recently, while Juanita Bynum and Bishop T.D. Jakes chose to speak only to say that we all should pray for those involved.
On Sunday, during his Father’s Day sermon Bishop Morton addressed Bishop Long’s lack of humility and repentance over his actions. He acknowledges that Eddie Long, who once spoke to him, won’t return his calls.
Therefore, he is saying publicly that he wants Eddie Long to stop hiding his actions in silence. Listen to the audio below:
