“You come to church to worship God and so I want you to keep your eyes on Him and to worship Him and to focus on Him.”

“I have preferred not to respond in the public domain, not as an admission of guilt, but out of respect for the due process and the ongoing investigations,” he said in the statement issued on Tuesday.
