Trinity Broadcasting Network aired a 3-hour tribute Sunday evening to its founding visionary, Paul F. Crouch, that included a fascinating documentary-style history of the media organization and short testimonials from many well-known Christian leaders. Wife and ministry partner, Jan Crouch, also spoke briefly about her husband, who died on Nov. 30, following a decade-long battle with degenerative heart disease.
"God called us on the same day to TBN," said Jan Crouch, relating an evening more than 40 years ago, when both realized at the same moment that they needed to start a TV station, "and I just always dreamed we would go home the same day. I never dreamed I would be left without his wisdom and his saying 'no' as only he could say," she explained, while momentarily giggling through her tears, "so lovingly, so lovingly sometimes. I never dreamed that one day TBN would be here and Paul wouldn't … Right now we just need your prayers and your love like never before."
The Rev. Franklin Graham, CEO and president of Samaritan's Purse, said during the television special, "TBN Remembers Paul F. Crouch 1934-2013," that he could not say or think about Paul Crouch without also thinking about his wife. more >>
Hollywood blogger Perez Hilton will star in a new reality TV series that will follow the lives of single and married gay men who live in New York City trying to balance careers, personal lives and fatherhood.
"Gay Dads Of New York" will showcase Hilton, who welcomed a son via surrogate earlier this year, and a group of other gay dads, living life as "the typical American family," according to Hilton. However, Christian-based organization, American Family Association (AFA), says Hilton's show should not air on television.
"We know, according to research done by Mark Regnerus at the University of Texas, that same-sex parenting is not optimal for children," said Bryan Fischer, director of issues analysis at the AFA, to The Christian Post, referring to a sociology professor's controversial study on the outcome of gay parents' children. more >>
