TBN Airing Special on Founder Paul Crouch Sr – Why?

TBN Airing Special on Founder Paul Crouch Sr – Why?

My online TV Guide says that TBN (Christian channel) is airing a 2 and a half or three hour special on founder Paul Crouch Sr. today, starting at 3:00 PM.

I cannot fathom why. Outside of his family, I cannot imagine many people who are that fascinated with Crouch Sr that they’d want to watch.

As I’ve noted before on the blog, in some very old posts, the folks who own TBN sometimes make the channel more about themselves than they do Jesus Christ, which I don’t understand.

I would assume this two or three hour program will be a snooze fest and will not be tuning in to watch. This being TBN, I can only assume they will either air this Paul Crouch special at least once a year, or as much as a few times a week over the next few months.

And on a commercial break promoting this special, TBN just showed a painting of Jesus hugging Paul Crouch.  It looked rather cheesy. Perhaps I can find a copy of it. Okay. This is a screen cap from the TBN site.
