Roger Oakland's letter to Paul Crouch regarding TBN promoting Roman Catholic dogma

Dear Paul,
I am writing this letter is to ask you to respond to some concerns that I have regarding the direction your Trinity Broadcasting Network is headed. Although you claim you are promoting the gospel of Jesus Christ, there is factual evidence that your organization is becoming a tool of the Roman Catholic Church and you are promoting another gospel that leads to another Christ.

Several years ago, while visiting your facility on Bear Street in Costa Mesa, I noticed a picture of you and your son Matt shaking hands with Pope John Paul II in St. Peter’s Square in Rome. I also noticed at this time that you had a statue of the Queen of Heaven (“Mary”) wearing her crown and holding baby Jesus, displayed in clear view on the second floor.

Since that time, I noticed that some of your programming and your practices indicate you are either not aware or not concerned about the false teachings promoted by the Roman Catholic Church. Such practices are not only confusing to the millions of Christians who look to you for leadership, they are also spiritually lethal in that you have the potential to mislead people into believing they are Christians when, according to the Scriptures they are not.
