berniceking Bernice King Leaves New Birth

Bernice King has left her position as an elder at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.  King says her decision to leave the church was not based on the recent settlement in the sexual coercion lawsuits filed against the church and Bishop Eddie Long.

King has been with New Birth for several years. Her mother, Coretta Scott King’s funeral was held at the church in 2006.

Back in 2004 Bernice King and Bishop Eddie Long lead a march against gay marraige in Atlanta. King was elected President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 2010 but decided not to take the position after infighting among board members. King says she plans to start her own ministry.
