Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F.

2nd Lawsuit Against TBN-Operatives Filed in Feb 2012

This is the second legal action against TBN operatives within the last 30 days.  The first was filed by Paul and Jan Crouch's Grand-daughter, Brittany Kober.  If you do a search on our blog, you will find additional information on the first lawsuit.  This, however, is a second legal action within the last 30 days.  We hope to find the complaint.  When we do, we will post it.

The new lawsuit against TBN alleges coverups of sexual and criminal scandals.
This lawsuit was filed by the uncle of Brittany Koper’s husband. Brittany Koper is, if you remember, the granddaughter of Paul and Jan Crouch, and the daughter of Paul Crouch, Jr., who is suing her attorneys for asking her to cover up financial fraud at TBN.

The suit was filed in Orange County Superior Court by Joseph McVeigh against Trinity Christian Center of Santa Ana (which does business as Trinity Broadcasting Network, the largest Christian broadcaster in the world), its International Christian Broadcasting arm, attorneys Davert & Loe (who do legal work for Trinity) and others.

McVeigh accuses Trinity and its lawyers of malicious prosecution in connection with a loan he received through Trinity companies.
So who is McVeigh? He is the uncle, by marriage, of Crouch granddaughterBrittany Koperwho sued Davert & Loe in federal court last month. Koper accused the world’s largest Christian broadcaster of unlawfully distributing charitable assets worth more than $50 million to its principals — and of firing her as its finance director, and beginning a campaign of “malicious retaliation” against her and her family (including McVeigh), for refusing to go along with the scheme.
Trinity paints a very different picture — saying it was Koper and her husband who committed financial misdeeds at Trinity.
