Christian con man Paul Crouch, founder of the Trinity Broadcasting Network, died Saturday, unfortunately not from shame because he clearly didn’t have any of that. Crouch was a ghoul, a grief vampire who made himself fabulously rich by fleecing the desperate and the ignorant. And please don’t tell me not to speak ill of the dead. I’m saying the same thing about him now that I’ve always said about him. Death does not magically transform a fraud into someone who should be praised.
