( Boca Raton , FL ) ---- Dr. Paul Crouch Sr., Founder and President of the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), announced his support for the Ten Commandments Commission and the Ten Commandments Day Celebration scheduled to take place nationwide on May 7, 2006.
"We're thrilled to have Dr. Paul Crouch on board for this important campaign," declare Pastor Myles Munroe and Ron Wexler, Founders of the Ten Commandments Commission. "We believe our efforts are an important step in restoring the one standard that will preserve our society."
The Ten Commandments Commission is a joint effort of religious and public leaders from across the nation to restore God's law and Judeo-Christian principles.
"Ten Commandments Day will be a declaration to the world that people of faith in America are serious about standing up for righteousness and the godly standard this nation was founded upon," Munroe says.
Crouch founded TBN in 1973. Since then, TBN has gone on to become the world's largest religious network and America 's most-watched faith channel. The network offers 24 hours of commercial-free inspirational programming that appeals to people in a wide variety of denominations. Faith-based programs include gospel music concerts, informative talk shows, and contemporary music videos.
"I am glad to support the Ten Commandments Commission in what they are doing," says Crouch.
The conviction that people of faith from all walks of life have a responsibility to take a bold stand for godly principles has prompted Crouch and thousands of other leaders and organizations to join in the Ten Commandments Day effort.

Jakes (The Potter's House), Richard Shakarian (Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship), Bishop George McKinney (Church of God in Christ), Pastor Billy Joe Daugherty (Tulsa Victory Christian Center), Benny Hinn (Benny Hinn Ministries), Ted Haggard (National Association of Evangelicals), Dr. Mark J.

"Our nation now stands in the ' Valley of Decision ,'" says Wexler. "It's time for all who honor God and His righteousness to let their voices be heard. That's what the Ten Commandments Commission is all about."
