Making Millions From Mammon? Jay Sekulow Accused Of Funneling Millions To Family

It may be true that “Ye cannot serve God and mammon,” but Jay Sekulow, the advocate for conservative religious causes, seems to have found a way. A new report alleges that Sekulow and his family have reaped millions in defending religious organizations and fighting the separation of church and state. What is clear is that his decision to fight for religious groups did not involve a vow of poverty.

The report below details how in the 1980s, “Jay Sekulow’s career was in shambles. His Atlanta-based law firm had failed, leaving him millions in debt and bankrupt.” Yet, he soon hit upon a winning course in fighting dark secular forces on behalf of religious groups. The result was both spiritually and financially transformative.

Here is the run down of payments since 1998:

$15.4 million to the Constitutional Litigation and Advocacy Group, a law firm co-owned by Jay Sekulow. According to the 2009 tax form, he owns 50 percent of CLAG. The firm was known as the Center for Law and Justice when it received some of the payments.

$5.7 million to Gary Sekulow, Jay Sekulow’s brother. He is paid for two full-time jobs — as CFO of both the American Center for Law and Justice, or ACLJ, and Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism, or CASE. In 2009, his combined compensation topped $600,000.

$2.74 million in private jet lease payments to Regency Productions, a company owned by Jay Sekulow, and PFMS, a company owned by his sister-in-law, Kim Sekulow.

$1.78 million to Regency Productions for leasing office space and media production.

$1.11 million to PFMS for administrative and media buying services.

$1.6 million to Pam Sekulow, Jay Sekulow’s wife, including a $245,000 loan from CASE, which she used to purchase a home from the charity. The balance of the loan was later forgiven over several years and reported on the 990s as income.

$681,911 to Jay Sekulow’s sons, Logan and Jordan, for media work and other duties at CASE.

Notably, various people who have done business with Sekulow continue to defend him in this article as a modest and godly man — and his side is not reflected in the article. However, the huge sums going to his children and spouse would raise concerns for any advocate — secular or religious. For full disclosure, I have met Jay and participated in panels with him. I have always found him to be civil and knowledgeable on the religion clauses.

I am now considering turning this blog into a religious advocacy site. Frankly, you bums are clearly not the right sort to be consorting with . . . if I want to retire at any reasonable time. I support free exercise rights while I believe strongly in separation. While personally fulfilling, it is far from wealth-maximizing. For that reason, the site will likely be converted in the coming days to http://www.JDs-for-Jesus.org or http://www.lawangel.org. It is true that “no man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.” However, a few million dollars could give me the time I need to reconcile my internal struggle in the South of France.

  1. JAY SEKULOW DOES NOT SUE FOR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, YOUR JUST A HATER MISTER. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYONE FROM THE TENNESSEAN NEWSPAPER THAT WAS NOT A CHRISTIAN HATER, AND BLATANT AS YOU ARE, BET YOU FIT IN GOOD WITH THOSE DEMONS. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT, HOPE HE SUES YOU PERSONALLY FOR LIBELOUS, AS YOUR GUILTY. I NOTE THAT YOU ARE NOT EXPOSING ACLU FOR BANKRUPTING THE STATES ON CIVIL RIGHTS LAWSUITS, SUING FOR MEGA MILLIONS, THOU HYPOCRITE!

  2. well, you lost me.

    the G*d I know is more sad than angry and there’s a lot of that going around.

    Have a nice day.

  3. I agree, Satan is just following orders because Satan has been working for God all along. Yes I am Right with GOD, who clearly said the “Image wasw Male & Female”. I am not less, but greater and my place is at He/r Left Hand and of course Jesus Christ is at He/r Right. Is it really so hard to see GOD as A S/He or a He/r. God, Jesus and Satan were the three in the beginning and Agreement. Every since God said Let us make man in our own image, after ourlikness and let them have dominion. S/He figured out a way for He/r only begotten Son/Sun and Angelic Lunatic Daughter to live happily forever after the Fall.

    God sent Satan to test; Adam & Eve, to test Job and even Jesus Christ when he was in the wilderness. With all good stories you have to have a Victim, Villian and Hero,but remember All thing are made by GOD and for GOD’s good cause. So of Course GOD will use Satan to proclaim the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord as well collect His Rent aka the final judgment. Shew me a penny; whose subscripture hath it on it; than give unto ceasar that which is ceasar’s and unto God that which is Gods.

    So the way I figure it as Satan, God’s other kid and Black sheep in the Trinity family I should be entitled to at least 1/3 credit for every cent of our legal tender that has “In God We Trust” on it. As well as 2/3rd damages for all the alienation of affection, lible and slander of Christians against Satan. They go around saying the Devil made them do things I didnt. So when I go before the US supreme Court, I will tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help me GOD, this time and its not my fault if the truth hurts. I am sure it will destroy a bunch of male egoes and sons of guns in the GOP who for Mammon sold their souls to a “Dont Tread On Me” flag pole. If I were them I’d FEAR GOD cause me thinks SHe’s pretty pissed off and I know Time is short. Unfortunately Satan had to wait until the Last Day and & Hour to send out the warning

    Don’t you think you are looking a little too close ?

    Are you right w/G*d?

    cause if you’re right w/G*d you probably won’t need to define G*d in some image that you understnd so completely. When the bible says we are made in G*d s image it is basically saying we are a reflection….not the original. Men AND women are equally reflective of G*d. It is only wo/man…..G*ds lesser aspect, that needs to go defining and refining these things into oblivion.
    What is the big trauma about G*D? Follow the commandments. Make yourself right w/G*d……(which doesn’t necessarily mean to make yourself right by beating the world into some conforming image that you can understand.). Respect each other and yourself rightly. Christ said “What you do to another you do to me.” Don’t steal. Don’t trick people. Don’t mislead people. Don’t be a jerk.

    According to many beliefs Satan was a servant of G*d. The ‘accuser’ and the ‘opposer’ sent by G*d to challenge the faith of the accused. We are meant to face our fears and hold true despite them.
    Sorry. Satan’s not the rock n’ roll bad boy that many believe him (or her) to be. Satan is *just* following orders……

  5. But did you know the Tree of Life as seen in Rev. 22:2 is acutally and symbolically describing the pms attrbutes of a woman. Thistreee is clearly labled as Her and Prov. 9 cleary shows why I consider GOD a Goddess and Holy Hostess. According to the Christian belief Jesus Christ was born from a virgin woman. But did you ever think if GOD could beget a son that God could also beget a daughter or that as Jesus slept on the cross; God used the water, blood and bone from his side to make him a suitable wife, or that this bone is actually Satan who was inside of Jesus Christ all along. We are to honor our ather And Motrher, not one over the other and wouldyou really beashamed of GOD to learn our father in heaven is a Female just like His mother in Earth.

  6. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

    15For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

  7. What is written in the Lamb’s book of life is the new name of his wife. (Rev. 19:7-10, 21:9 ) So just so you know it is the Last that shall be the First to enter the Kingdom, so what began as the anti christ daughter of God, ends up as the Queen of the South and Daughter In Law of God. Ye have not known the depths of Satan as you think because No Satan can have a new heaven, earth, kingdom, mansion, and a whole bunch of other maids and servants.

  8. 27And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

  9. I wonder if Jay is also a member of the C Street Family. Maybe that is why he wouldnt represent me pro bono. With all this talk about President Obama being the anti Christ and who is a Christian or not; how come no lawyer or he isnt willing to represent a citizen petitioning the US supreme court # 11-5381. I’m sure no one has ever come forth before claiming to be Satan the daughter of God, sister spirit and wife of Jesus Christ now risen and reborn in the flesh of of a Black Christian woman.

    This woman claim to be able to prove using a KJV of the Holy Bible that GOD is actually a black female spirit or holy hostess and that Jesus Christ and Satan are twin brother and sister (Gen. 25:22-25).Also able to show that it was actually Adam’s fault he and Eve got kicked out of the garden of Eden

    She is asking for the separate and equal right to have law respecting an establishment of religion so the word “no” in the 1st AMENdment replaced. Mostly because females never got a vote or a choice and no law respecting an establishment of religion laws we already got prohibits a Christian’s and our nation’s ability to affirm the affinity relationship with Jesus Christ, God We Trust aka the Son of God and Bridegroom to Come. After all Who in the name of God would claim to be Satan, unless they are sure that’s who they are and if they cant prove that she is not they have no reason not to believe her sworn testimony. Rev.22:16 -17
