Juanita Bynum appeared on Good Morning America and talked about the situation between her and estranged husband Bishop Thomas Weeks.
When GMA’s Robin Roberts asked Bynum about an abusive first marriage, and her seperation from her second husband, Thomas Weeks III, she said, “My first marriage is something that, he repented for what he did, and I made a vow that I would not talk about that situation because it was over 20 years ago.
“I think right now my focus lately has been on why have I allowed this kind of behavior for a second time,” she said. “I’m really focusing on my own healing rather than looking at the faults of the individuals because I can’t do anything about their actions; I can only do something about my own.”
“I believe that spirituality needs to be used in a proper manner, to the degree that we forgive and we pray, but by the same token, you have to take the responsibility to remove yourself out of harm’s way while you’re praying,” Bynum said Wednesday.
Weeks’ attorney, Randall Kessler, said he was contacted by Good Morning America Tuesday night for a comment on “our position on the current status.”
Kessler released a statement saying, “We have suggested private mediation, or even a settlement conference to expedite resolution, and to prevent any unintended miscommunication or leaks to the press. Unfortunately, it is becoming more and more apparent that Rev. Bynum wants to keep this matter public and to expand her career and public persona by doing so.”

Looks like GOD is definitely showing his working hand in turning tragedy into a positive! He is sovereign! Oprah has put the call to Bynum and invited her to the extravagant fundraising event for Presidential hopeful Barack Obama only for the social elite that will be taking place at her 42 acre Mansion in Montecito CA on Saturday. That is a big deal and what we call a good look on Oprah’s part to invite Mrs. Bynum to something of that magnitude. Bynum’s publicist says that “Bynum is hoping to talk directly with Obama or members of his campaign team about national domestic violence concerns.” GOD can use situation good or bad to elevate whomever he chooses to a new level. Great for Juanita Bynum!
In other reports accused wife beater Thomas Weeks lawyer has said that Weeks “hopes he doesn’t end up getting a divorce.” WOW! Is it us or does that just sound backwards! Like what do you expect a woman to do after you allegedly choke her and throw her to the ground and start A Town Stomping on her!!! And this is your wife not some burglar you found tip toeing in your crib at 4 in the morning….Developing……

Here is what Bishop Thomas Weeks had to say in response to the negative press he is receiving as reported by Mediatakeout.com….
I appreciate the comments shared by my wife on yesterday and likewise share my forgiveness towards her and wish her all the best. I also have had time to reflect on the events of the last two weeks. And I would encourage all who have already judged me to be aware that there are two sides to every story.
Because I initially believed this was a private matter, I refrained from making any public statements about the situation. Even during the negative press coverage and media hype that has surrounded this case, my legal counsel has recommended that I reveal my side of what happened that Tuesday night only at the appropriate time.
Nevertheless, one thing I would like to make very clear to all who will listen, is to share my sincerest apologies to the every Christian, and especially to the Global Destiny Church Family, Sons, Daughters and Partners for having to endure this ordeal.
Because of the method in which this was handled just hours following the situation, it has not only hurt me, but has damaged the reputation of Christians around the world. It is for this reason, that I continue to trust in God while the storm would try to engulf me. Finally, I’m asking every Christian to pray that God’s will be done.
Bishop Thomas Weeks III
