Bee-otched For: forcing to give closure to a horrific tragedy

The biggest waste of electricity in the history of television now has $2 million less in its bank account.

The Trinity Broadcasting Network was order to pay that sum yesterday by a court to Carra Crouch, the granddaughter of network founders Paul and Jan Crouch. In 2006, Crouch, then 13 was in a hotel room in Atlanta for a TBN conference. Then, a 30-year-old TBN employee coerced himself into her room with a bottle of wine. Later, while with Crouch, the man slipped in a date rape drug and Crouch passed out. She woke up later in immense pain and blood surrounding her naked body. The TBN employee was cuddled next to her. She ran into the bathroom, screaming for him to get out, which he did.

Carra later told her grandmother, Jan Crouch about the rape. Her response? She told her that the rape was her fault. Um, yeah. Like a 13-year-old girl knows how to protect herself from sexual predators. But then again, when a woman gets raped, it's NEVER her fault.

In the case of Crouch's rapist, he was never thrown in jail. As a matter of fact, Jan Crouch should have alerted the authorities, but did not. All TBN did to the asshole was fire him.

The situation regarding Carra Crouch's rape has definitely helped fuel the family feud in the Crouch family. Carra's rape was revealed by her sister, Brittany Koper (seen above with Paul and Jan plus her husband, Michael), who has long alleged that TBN had been mishandling money and cheating on their taxes. Both Brittany and Michael worked for TBN but were fired after she wrote a memo to her grandfather addressing the network's use of expenses, such as houses, jet planes and even a house for Paul and Jan's dogs. 

TBN, of course is the 24/7 cable network that airs a myriad of crooked televangelists such as Joel Osteen, John Hagee, Creflo Dollar, Paula White, Kenneth Copeland and T.D. Jakes. Many of TBN's hosts have been under the microscope for using their viewers' monies for luxurious items like houses and planes. Of course, they claim that all this was ministry property and the hosts were living there for free.

But the good news is that Carra Crouch has closure and will now have a chunk of the change TBN makes. What Jan Crouch - who along with Paul have thankfully passed on - did all those years ago to young Carra is inexcusable. Then again, TBN is no stranger to legal troubles, either. After all, they paid a man $400,000 out of court who claimed that he lost his job because Paul forced him to have sex with him. Maybe this heartbreaking experience will force TBN into realizing that Jesus was right after all.

It's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to go to Heaven.
