Bishop Eddie Long Vanessa Long New Birth Missionary Baptist Church

New Birth Missionary Baptist Church thinks the rumors about Bishop Eddie Long’s wife Vanessa leaving him are so ridiculous, that it’s spokesperson felt the need to issue a statement and announced a staged “family event.”

The statement, from spokesman Art Franklin, said New Birth and its leadership have chosen not to respond to “rumors,” instead remaining focused on “God’s mission for the ministry.”

It called such claims hateful and damaging.

But in the digital world “many people can’t discern the difference between legitimate journalists and irresponsible bloggers,” the statement said. “Recently, some blog entries have surfaced claiming to have anonymous sources stating that New Birth First Lady Elder Vanessa Long has moved out of the house. That claim is completely and absolutely false. Mrs. Long is very much a loving, dedicated and committed wife and mother.”

The church’s Website does not mention the rumors.

But people are asked to join the Longs as they host an upcoming “Family and Friends Homecoming Celebration” from 4-9 p.m. July 2 at the church.

Still sounds fishy to us. Ladies, would you still be hanging in there?
