Bishop Eddie Long Apologizes To Jewish Group After Being Crowned King

Bishop Eddie Long has apologized after his coronation video went viral and offended some Jewish people. He not only ap0logizes he “denounces” being depicted as king because he is only a “servant of the Lord.” In an open letter to Bill Nigut, southeast regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, he wrote:

“The ceremony was not my suggestion, nor was it my intent, to participate in any ritual that is offensive in any manner to the Jewish community, or any group. Furthermore, I sincerely denounce any action that depicts me as a King, for I am merely just a servant of the Lord…While I believe that Rabbi Ralph Messer has good intentions during his message at New Birth, I understand that the ceremony he performed on Sunday, January 29th, caused harm to the Jewish community, for which I am deeply sorry.”
