James Fortune has released a statement on child abuse allegations:

“I recently became aware of a civil suit pending against my wife, Cheryl Fortune and I, for an incident that occurred in 2001 involving my stepson. There was a criminal investigation and all matters were resolved in 2003. Since that time, my family and I, including my stepson, have continued with family traditions and always have a loving family environment.

We are shocked by this lawsuit but understand people are free to use the court system to pursue claims, whether they contain merit or baseless matters. We are confident through this process, if it proceeds to a judge or jury, the ultimate decision maker will render a decision that is favorable to the circumstances and timing surrounding this situation. We believe in our American justice system and know it will work for us as it has for millions of other Americans. I love all my children, including my stepson, and I ask for your prayers as we deal with this matter privately. Thank you for your continued support for me, my family, and ministry.”

According to a civil lawsuit, Fortune is being sued for $5 million after burning 50% of his stepson's body and leaving him disfigured. Both Fortune and his wife Cheryl, the mother of accuser, are named in the suit.

    Most times I agree with Sybil, but on the James Fortune conversation this morning she was totally wrong. She appeared to be more concerned with protecting James Fortune and whatever Fortune he has acquired , than a Disfigured, Defenseless child. I was really appalled at her comments such as be “fair”, to James Fortune. Where is the Fairness in the condition the child has suffered and will be suffering for a lifetime ….shame , shame, shame on you Sybil!
