Responding on Monday to four lawsuits alleging that Bishop Eddie Long coerced young men into sexual relations, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church acknowledged that the accusers accompanied the pastor on trips but said it could not confirm or deny whether anything inappropriate took place, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The Lithonia megachurch, in its response filed in DeKalb County State Court Monday, said the men accompanied Long on trips, in some cases overseas, but added it couldn’t explain the nature of relationships that may have existed between Long and the men.

The four men allege that Long used his influence, lavish trips, gifts and jobs to coerce them into sexual relationships.
