Bishop Eddie Long Apologizes to Jewish Community

Bishop Eddie Long of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church issued an apology to the Anti-Defamation League for his role in a king-crowning ceremony last weekend. Long wrote a letter addressed to Bill Nigut, southeast regional director of the ADL — a Jewish group that fights anti-Semitism:

“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,” Bishop Long wrote in an open letter to Bill Nigut, “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,”

Long wrote.

CNN reports Nigut acknowledged the apology and said he was grateful for it.  READ MORE

Cee-Lo also joined the pop star on her choir-backed rendition of “Like A Prayer.” Hip-hop diva Nicki Minaj also rocked the stage with Madonna on Sunday. Nicki and M.I.A. joined the pop icon for a performance of her latest single “Give Me All Your Luvin’.” Nicki was a little more behaved than M.I.A. who caused all the drama.

 M.I.A., 36, flipped the bird toward a camera just before a cutaway during the halftime show. It seemed a lil blip on yo TV screen, but it really was just where they cut out her finger of an otherwise successful production.
