Jan Crouch, 'Prosperity Gospel' evangelist – obituary

Jan Crouch, 78, is survived by her poodles
and her wig collection.
TBN sued for misuse of funds.Will WELS and the LCMS be next?


Jan Crouch, 'Prosperity Gospel' evangelist – obituary:



"The Crouches claimed that their lavish lifestyle was proof of the rewards bestowed on them by the Almighty for all their good works.  But some sceptics remained unconvinced. In the 1990s they had several run-ins with the Federal Communications Commission over allegations of illegal licences and were nearly taken off the air.

In 2004 it was revealed that, in 1998, Paul Crouch had secretly paid a former TBN employee $425,000 for his silence after the man claimed they had enjoyed a homosexual tryst in 1996 during a weekend spent at a TBN-owned cabin. Crouch, who denied the allegations, explained that he had settled out of court only to avoid a costly and embarrassing trial.



 But perhaps the most damaging attacks on the Crouches came from within their own family."


The late Paul Crouch - this is not a doctored photo,
and yes he was wearing a Roman collar
instead of his standard cowboy costume.
