Bishop spoke to his congregation on Sunday.
-“By the council of my lawyers they have advised me not to try this case in the media. I am not gonna try this case in the media, it will be tried in the court of justice, and dealt with in the court of justice. And please understand because that is the only place I feel I will get justice.”
Though Long said “this is probably the most difficult time” of his life, he vowed to be at the church again next Sunday, and likened his situation to a mythical battle.
“I feel like David against Goliath,” he said, “but I’ve got five rocks and I haven’t thrown one yet.”
