Christian network TBN settles harassment lawsuit

Associated Press

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- A gay former engineer at the Christian broadcast giant Trinity Broadcasting Network has settled a civil lawsuit that alleged his employer harassed him for his sexual orientation.

Court papers filed in federal court in Orange County show Brian Dugger settled out of court last month with TBN for an undisclosed amount.

The lawsuit alleged that Paul Crouch Jr., the son of founders Jan and Paul Crouch, told Dugger to stop being "gay," teased Dugger in front of others and told him to take more interest in women.

Dugger had asked for more than $2 million in damages.

Calls to his attorney and TBN were not immediately returned.

TBN broadcasts 24-hours worldwide and describes itself as the world's largest religious network.
