Along with the recent multi million dollar lawsuit against Trinity Broadcasting Network and

Paul and Jan Crouch here is a little background on their past corruption and homophobic history.

The video is more than 12 minutes but really brings to light the hypocrisy of these vile people.
It's a Fox expose' from a local Texas channel but it's very well done. (Not the national Faux News.)

Here is the latest story and I think it was posted on DU previously but it cannot be promoted enough.

These people need to be prosecuted not only for fraud but for IRS violations for blatantly selling goods using the word "donations" as a code word for "buying" goods and services and making tax free profits.

Their wealth would pay for the health care of many actually poor and unfortunate human beings.

1. I would gaze in a state of horrified puzzlement at those shows on cable. The ultimate insanity.

3. Their Xmas shows are not to be missed!

Hilarious! I've almost died laughing a few times, as Paul 'n Jan roam around their gift shop at Xmas trying to sucker the faithful with some of the most hideous Jesus-junk ever manufactured.

During one big Xmas show, Jan looked seriously over-medicated. Paul was jabbering full-speed like a desperate used-car salesman trying to close a deal.

When he turned to Jan, expecting a response, she would just stand there, spaced out. When she did answer, she...spoke...VERY...slowly.

Paul got so mad, I thought he was going to bop her upside the head with a life-size Baby Jesus ($99.95, all major credit cards accepted.)

Then there's TBN's whack pianist, Dino Kartsonakis. He wears big diamond rings on every finger and looks like the offspring of a one-night stand between Liberace and Keith Richards.

Dino did look like he was having a good time playing for the TBN Children's Choir. In fact, TOO good a time - I thought he looked like an in-progress Amber Alert.

4. I've spent many evenings laughing at the very things you mentioned. Plus PTL many years ago.

At first it seemed like wasted time but eventually I realized I was being educated in the ways of subtle evil and understanding just how society can be manipulated.
