TBN Founder’s Familly Still Building Studios with Drug and White Supremacist Money?
TBN Founder Paul Crouch, Earl Paulk and Oral Roberts Linked to Mafia Drugs and White Supremacists
UPDATE on Sept. 8, 2014:
(TBN), the world’s largest religious broadcaster and America’s most-watched faith channel, will present its new state-of-the-art Chicago studio with an open house from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. (Central Time) on Thursday, September 11th.
TBN Vice President Matthew Crouch said that with the new 60,000-square-foot studio located in the western suburb of Aurora, Chicago joins Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, Nashville, Orlando, Florida, and New York City — along with London and Jerusalem — as a major production venue for TBN programming worldwide, including the network’s popular Praise the Lord music and talk show.

If this story is true, we would not be surprised. We always suspected Paul Crouch and family were racists along with the others. Black folks thought they were going somewhere when they were invited to TBN to preach, host or perform. From what we knew back in the day, TBN never paid any hosts or performers to be on the “Praise the Lord” show. It was just a place to get support and maybe they received a donation.

According to files compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the founder of the world’s largest Christian television network financed his endeavor with the assistance of numerous international criminal organizations.
Documents obtained by MuckRock show that the FBI was investigating Trinity Broadcasting Network and its founder, Paul Crouch, for being in communication with the infamous Bronx mafia figure, Vincent Gigante, with regards to a “narcotics transfer of funds,” which is how the FBI classifies money-laundering.
In another document, Crouch is listed alongside Reverend Earl Paulk and Oral Roberts as “anti-Semitic white supremacists [who] were supposedly receiving funds from the [Palestinian Liberation Organization] to ‘run guns’” via an “Islamic Education Center” in Baltimore, Maryland. Both of these investigations were tagged as relating to “financial flow” involving narcotics.
Crouch and the Tustin, California-based Trinity Broadcasting Network he founded have come under fire in the past for “the prosperity gospel” that is preached on the network, which promises immediate material rewards to viewers who donate generously.
