Let the fallout begin! Since Eddie "I'm gonna fight my Homosexuality" Long paid millions to hush the sex scandal, some folks are waking up.
Like MLK's daughter Bernice King
The Rev. Bernice King will announce on a radio show Tuesday that she is stepping down as an elder at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, an action apparently unrelated to Bishop Eddie Long's recent settlement of four sexual misconduct lawsuits.Eddie didn't even talk about it in church is past Sunday.
King intends to disclose her plans to radio host Rhodell Lewis on Praise 102.5, and on mypraiseatl.com between 4 and 5:30 p.m., according to an Effective Media Group news release.
King is leaving with the blessing of Long, pastor of the Lithonia Megachurch, and had been planning this move for a couple of years, according to a person with knowledge of the situation who was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity.
Attempts to reach King, Lewis and church officials on Monday were unsuccessful.
