Just over a year ago, Paul Crouch, the man who founded Trinity Broadcasting Network and made millions of dollars on the backs of gullible viewers, died.
Brittany Koper, a granddaughter of Paul Crouch Sr., founder of Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world’s largest Christian network, alleged in a lawsuit filed Thursday that top bosses in the organization threatened her life with a gun and fired her and her husband, Michael, after she refused to illegally funnel some $100 million of charitable assets to their personal accounts.
“Brittany Koper learned from defendant Trinity Broadcasting’s board of directors and defendant John Casoria that [she] had been chosen for the promotion to defendant Trinity Broadcasting’s head of finance because the directors needed somebody ‘within the family’ that they could trust to keep defendant Trinity Broadcasting’s financial ‘skeletons’ safely in the ‘closet,'” notes the suit.
Yikes. And that’s not even the worst part. Wait till you read the jaw-dropping details involving the gun:
Plaintiff Michael Koper, Plaintiff Brittany Koper, and her father Paul Crouch, Jr. were all fired. When questioned about the termination, Defendant Matthew Crouch began tapping the firearm he had brought to the meeting and asked Plaintiff Brittany Koper what she thought would happen when she wrote a memo to the board critical of Defendant Matthew Crouch’s financial improprieties. Defendant Matthew Crouch continued tapping the gun he was holding to ensure that Plaintiff Brittany Koper recognized the lethal threat being made.
A veiled death threat… just like the ones Jesus made to the Pharisees.
Matt: 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: God help anyone who would try to get in the way of TBN, which was God’s…
Matt: plan and his purpose.
Paul: I have attended the funeral of at least two people who tried.
Paul: That’s another whole story.
What’s really sad is that there are loyal viewers who still won’t stop sending money to TBN despite the allegations. They’re just that brainwashed.
