[W/PHOTO] Paul Crouch Flips Off TBN Cameras in Jerusalem!

Thumbnail image for Paul & Jan Crouch.jpg
Today, the Los Angeles Times ran an interesting piece about how Costa Mesa-based Trinity Broadcasting Network was establishing a bigger presence in Israel, in preparation for the End Times and to turn Jews on to Jesus. And it was the validation I needed to publish a picture of TBN head Paul Crouch that a source of mine forwarded to me, of what they say is an undoctored photo Paul flipping off TBN cameras in Jerusalem last month.

See, I couldn't believe the picture at first, figuring it was too good to be true.

Like, why was Crouch wearing a cleric's collar in the leaked photo? Why did he have a pinkie ring? Why are his jowls so low?

But then I saw the picture of Crouch in the Times piece and he's wearing the EXACT SAME clerical collar. And we passed it by our production department, who stopped playing Ping Pong for a second to opine it's the real Don Steele.

Ladies and germs, behold Crouch saluting Jesus!

Fake, or not? Talk to us, TBN folks!

My wife worked for them and did so as a job only for 9 plus years. She is non christian and non religious she worked hard as a reader and did her job well. She was told to type in an elderly employee's personal punch in number to the time clock who was in a wheel chair technically punching her in, by her boss. This boss the supervisor named Norma Hares, who also happened to have been a roommate and state paid care giver to the elderly woman. Who was in her mid to late 80's? And so Norma Hares kept her roommate the elderly woman Virginia Julian on the payroll to justify having her at work so she could watch her without paying for in home care and so could still get medical insurance as a full time employee, Norma kept Virginia working only the minimum hours required to be full time.  My wife told her boss Norma Hares that she could not punch in the elderly woman as it was illegal and against the law. Norma Hares countered with "that is not a TBN rule". To which my wife said it is both a State and Federal law according to both labor boards.
My wife went from 39 hours plus a week over the next month down to 4 hours. When she asked why they said she was not full time on the paperwork and was only a part time temp employee. Well state law says anyone working more than 34 hours a week by law is a full time employee so another labor law violation is committed. When she pressed for more time they fired her as not being needed and stated they are an "At Will Employer". When she filed for unemployment she was denied and TBN's reason was they were a nonprofit organization. Because TBN had not filed proof of this with the EDD they brought in a law firm to represent them in arbitration in courts for the EDD. In the arbitration the EDD brought in an investigator and an EDD Attorney to prove in the arbitration that this proof was not provided. This Arbitration went to the state capital offices of the EDD and the acting arbitrator was told he did not have the authority to rule on her case per the state office. The Approximate cost to TBN was easily over $50,000. To keep my wife from receiving fair unemployment benefits that may have been a cost of $5000.00 max. TBN seems to function under their own laws and violates human rights and employment laws hand over fist and cares not about its violations.
This company and its owners are seriously evil and self oriented in their basic core being. I believe Norma Hares was totally functioning outside both state and federal labor codes concerning her elderly roommate and any staff under her supervision.  I have filed with both the state and federal labor boards to conduct investigations into TBN's lack of basic work ethics and their blatant violations of labor laws. Employee be cautious do not try to justify working for this evil empire.

I have seen bad business but TBN sets a new standard, Employee's and donators you have been warned. They will rob you blind. They never send money so do not ask. They do not care about anything but the money they can get suckers to send them. They live in lavish homes and have many as well as lavish toys.

You guys are such jerks.  If you watched him long enough you would know that his pinky and ring finger have been paralyzed shut since his last hospitalization in 2012.

Fake. If you watch the show he has bad arthritis in his fingers and can no longer extend them that far. Finger: fake. Everything else is legit.

It is clearly a photo-shopped photo.  It is clear that the offending fingers are not the older man's in the photo!  The fingers and thumb in the photo appear to be from a younger man, and a man with a different skin tone as well.  If you resolution on your monitor is good enough you can even see the splice line where the offensive finger where over laid on the man's hand.

 

 I don't know much about this fella, but the photo has been doctored.  Regardless what type of person he is, Saint or Fiend, such attempts to defame someone is wrong!

 The tone difference I believe you to be talking about apparently extends across the entire screen (low contrast off of the hand image, so arguable), If it's photo-shopped, they did an amazing job of matching the raster lines, very difficult to pull off.

 

These guys are con-artists (if they're sincere they're conning themselves).

 On second look, it does look like it is a photo of a bad monitor and the shading I looked at before looks like it is due to poor display quality on the screen being photographed.  If this man did actually make that jesture, it is very telling about the man's heart.  No matter what is going on or why the gesture is being made, it is something one who professes to follow Yeshua Hammashiach should do!
