TBN: Circling the Drain

Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) has had its fair share of bad publicity lately, and it’s no wonder.  Greed and ungodliness like theirs can’t be covered forever.  In an article published by the OC Register, they show this picture of Jan Crouch, wife of TBN founder, Paul Crouch, holding a hand-written will, allegedly written by Paul Crouch, Sr. when he was on his deathbed.  This hand-written will gives Jan’s favorite son, Matthew, control over the family business (TBN) instead of Jan’s oldest and least-favored son.  Notice Matt in the mirror taking the picture with his phone.  If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I would say Jan wasn’t so broken up about thinking her husband was about to die.  In fact, she seems to be mocking him.  However, he didn’t die –  and neither did this photo.  It was submitted as part of a lawsuit brought by the Crouch’s granddaughter, Brittany Koper.  And, as a side note, I did enlarge the photograph and Paul Crouch did give Matt the majority of the power.

I’ve been keeping up with these lawsuits, and to be sure, there’s much, much scandal going on.

Here are links to the whole ordeal, just in case anyone missed it:

Honestly, I pray all of their dirty dealing and stealing is laid bare for the world to see.

Second Lawsuit Filed Against TBN

The new lawsuit against TBN alleges coverups of sexual and criminal scandals.

This lawsuit was filed by the uncle of Brittany Koper’s husband.  Brittany Koper is, if you remember, the granddaughter of Paul and Jan Crouch, and the daughter of Paul Crouch, Jr., who is suing her attorneys for asking her to cover up financial fraud at TBN.

This is from the Orange County Register:

Jaw-dropping details about alleged financial digressions at Trinity Broadcasting Network were made in a lawsuit filed Thursday – including the purchase of a $50 million jet through “a sham loan to an alter ego corporation” for the personal use of the Crouches; a $100,000 motor home purchased by Trinity as a mobile residence for Jan Crouch’s dogs; “multiple residential estates” falsely reported as guest homes or church parsonages to avoid income disclosures;  meal expenses of up to a half-million dollarsper company director; “personal chauffeurs compensated with Trinity funds under the guise of medical payments;” and “multiple cover-ups of sexual and criminal scandals.”

The suit was filed in Orange County Superior Court by Joseph McVeigh against Trinity Christian Center of Santa Ana (which does business as Trinity Broadcasting Network, the largest Christian broadcaster in the world), its International Christian Broadcasting arm, attorneys Davert & Loe (who do legal work for Trinity) and others.

McVeigh accuses Trinity and its lawyers of malicious prosecution in connection with a loan he received through Trinity companies.

So who is McVeigh? He is the uncle, by marriage, of Crouch granddaughter Brittany Koperwho sued Davert & Loe in federal court last month. Koper accused the world’s largest Christian broadcaster of unlawfully distributing charitable assets worth more than $50 million to its principals — and of firing her as its finance director, and beginning a campaign of “malicious retaliation” against her and her family (including McVeigh), for refusing to go along with the scheme.

Trinity paints a very different picture — saying it was Koper and her husband who committed financial misdeeds at Trinity.
