Clergy sex victims blast abusive high profile Atlanta pastor
New Birth Missionary Baptist Church will be a more healthy institution without Rev. Eddie Long. He’s clearly a self-aggrandizing egomaniac who abuses his power to gain financial and sexual pleasure.
We hope that every person who saw, suspected or suffered his crimes and misdeeds will find the courage and strength to speak up, call police, expose wrongdoing, protect kids and start healing.
50 State AG Call for Grand Jury
Any investigation must be:
- independent of and separate from the church
- must have subpoena powers and ability to compel testimony under oath
Anything short of these criteria is a sham and whitewash.
In addition, write letters to the editor, make phone calls to politicians as they can apply pressure to keep them responsive to our demand. We need to make efforts to ensure that they follow up on what the state is doing to investigate these crimes.
