Paul Crouch a Homosexual?

Here we go again ... The LA Times has a piece about the illustrious Paul Crouch, founder of TBN.

"Televangelist Paul Crouch, founder of the world's largest Christian broadcasting network, has waged a fierce legal battle to prevent a former employee from publicizing allegations that he and Crouch had a sexual encounter eight years ago."

The article goes on to say...

"In court papers, Crouch has denied the allegations, and ministry officials have described Ford — who has a history of drug problems and has served time for a sex offense — as a liar and an extortionist.

At stake are the public image of one of the world's most successful televangelists and, potentially, the fortunes of the broadcasting empire that Crouch and his wife, Jan, built over the last 31 years.TBN and Crouch went on the legal offensive after they learned that Ford had written a book manuscript that included an account of the alleged sexual encounter."

If you can stomach more, read on.

I have no clue if the allegations are true, however, I do find it suspect that Crouch was so willing to fork out so much money without even thinking about it. I think that if he really did nothing wrong, then why was he willing to pay out so much money, and why make everything in secret.

Doesn't He believe in a God who will bring to light that which is evil and corrupt? Doesn't Crouch believe that if he's innocent God will protect him and his reputation?

Makes me wonder...

I don't blame him for shelling out the cash. Anything to cover that sort of thing up. Christians are really good pre-judging and tearing people apart.

What do you think about Ralph Reed and the Alabama Christian Coalition using gambling money to lobby against expansion of gambling in Alabama..... The Montgomery Newspaper condemned the hypocrisy and corruption.

If I were married to Jan Crouch, I'd probably go gay too.
