TBN Co-Founder Paul Crouch Suggests God Will Kill People for TBN
May 2012 TBN co-founder Paul Crouch and his son Matt made veiled threats against anyone who stands in their way.
This conversation was about one week after TBN was hit by a lawsuit from Paul's granddaughter Brittany Koper, who blew the whistle on what she called illegal financial schemes.
Matt Crouch said: "You know what’s funny dad? There have been a few attempts in the TBN history to upset TBN, to stop TBN. There have been a few fools in the 38, 39 year history, coming up on 40 years. And you what? Any attempt at stopping TBN, they have no idea who they’re actually pushing into the corner. You and mom get pushed in a corner, God help you. That’s a lesson I’ve learned from you. Seriously."
Paul Crouch added: "I have attended the funeral of at least two people who tried."
The video was originally found by the Orange County Register on the TBN web site, but was removed.
Fortunately someone else made a rough copy and uploaded the video (below) to YouTube.
Explosive Scandal Brewing at the Trinity Broadcasting Network?
March 27, 2012 If the contents of a lawsuit filed by the granddaughter of Trinity Broadcasting Network founders Paul and Jan Crouch prove to be true, then the inner workings of the famous Christian network are scandalous indeed.
The LA Times - The Trinity Broadcasting Network is embroiled in a legal battle involving allegations of massive financial fraud and lavish spending, including the purchase of a $100,000 motor home for family dogs.
Brittany Koper, a former high-ranking TBN official and the granddaughter of its co-founder, Paul Crouch Sr., was fired by the network in September after discovering “illegal financial schemes” amounting to tens of millions of dollars, according to a lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court.
The article goes on to detail Brittany’s role as a whistleblower for the whole operation, which allegedly included stuff like this:
The lawsuit alleges that Paul Crouch Sr. obtained a $50-million Global Express luxury jet for his personal use through a “sham loan,” and that TBN funds paid for a $100,000 motor home for dogs owned by his wife, Janice Crouch, a network director.
The suit also alleges that TBN bought residences across the country for its directors under the pretext that they were “guest homes” or “church parsonages.” The properties include mansions used by the Crouch family in Newport Beach; side-by-side mansions in Windermere, Fla.; and homes in Nashville; Miami; and Irving, Texas, according to the suit.

Televangelism powerhouse swamped by scandal
May 14, 2012 TBN has been hit by a lawsuit from Crouch family members alleging widespread embezzlement, plus allegations of spending by the ministry that helped cover up sexual scandals and a discrimination lawsuit.
The cover-up and destruction of evidence concerning a bloody sexual assault involving TBN and affiliated Holy Land Experience employees; the cover-up of director Janice Crouch’s affair with a staff member at the Holy Land Experience; and the cover-up of director Paul Crouch’s use of TBN funds to pay for a legal settlement with Enoch Lonnie Ford (a former TBN employee who said he had a homosexual affair with Paul Crouch).
In 2010, TBN paid an undisclosed sum in damages to one of its employees, Brian Dugger, who claimed he suffered harrassment and discrimination at the hands of TBN employees. Paul Crouch Jr taunted Dugger with pornography, and said:
Brian has a man-gina!
He also said TBN:
Was no place for fairies.
The lawsuit details massive spending on private jets, mansions in California, Tennessee and Florida and a $100,000 mobile home for Jan Crouch’s dogs paid for through sham loans.
The suit comes in the wake of the sacking of Brittany Koper, the granddaughter of Paul Crouch. The suit alleges Koper discovered the illegal financial activities, conveyed her concerns to ministry leaders, and was told to shut her gob.
