I never knew I had my own coffee shop! I'll have to have legal contact them regarding royalties or something...

Dear Christian,

In the IRS 990 form for Grace To You for 2009 listed under "Contract Services" it's shown that GTY paid $667,000 to The Welch Group. What is The Welch Group and why is this of interest? It's interesting because The Welch Group is a corporation whose CEO/founder/owner is Kory Welch, John Macarthur's son-in law! Now do you think there could be just a little conflict of interest going on here? And just thinking out loud....but doesn't the Word admonish Christians to avoid even the appearance of evil?

Amazingly (but not for those who know the truth about Macarthur), it appears that the GTY financed, The Welch Group, has done a "concept ad" for Starbucks, an extremely anti-Christian, pro-homosexual corporation! But then again, why discriminate when there is money to be made?

Also of interest from the 990 form: John Macarthur's propaganda minister, Phil Johnson, was well compensated again in 2009 earning $225,000 while seven other board members earned in excess of $150,000. Oh I almost forgot to mention...who is the treasurer of GTY? Matt Macarthur, John Macarthur's son, while Macarthur's other son, Mark, remains a director. Just keepin it all in the family....

markshriv,

How this has anything to do with "The Squirrel's Coffee Shop" I have no idea... so totally off topic.

However - and I didn't have to do any research here - it is all common knowledge - Kory Welch is MacArthur's son-in-law, he also is a professional video producer. His company is not "funded by Grace to You" in some sort of nefarious plot, as you seem to be alleging. His video production company, The Welch Group, is contracted with GTY to produce the Grace to You television broadcasts. There's nothing secret & nothing hidden. Kory's name is in the credits of the GTY broadcasts as producer, as is The Welch Group's logo.

That his production company would take on other clients isn't shocking. And to imply that, by producing advertising for Starbucks, he endorses all of their causes and beliefs is ridiculous. Look around your house. Do you employ goods or services from 3M? AT&T? Bristol-Myers Squibb? Do you bank with Wells Fargo & Co? Drive a Toyota or a Volkswagen? Ever gas up at Shell Oil or drink Coca Cola? What about doing any business with companies that do business with any of these companies? All these companies, and more, support the gay rights agenda.

As far as John MacArthur doing business with his family and friends, I am not surprised. I understand that his enemies will not do business with him...

Banned tinfoil-hat-wearing troll markshriv stopped by and wanted to let us know that Acme Hardware is having a sale on tinfoil this month. Real tinfoil, not that fake aluminum foil, which doesn't really stop the governments mind control devices.

Just thought I'd pass that on...
