Benny Hinn and the prosperity gospel harlot

Benny Hinn is being sued by his publisher after pictures of Hinn and evangelist (and harlot) Paula White were photographed together in Rome. The publisher is demanding a payment of $250,000 for violation of a morality clause. The good news is that Hinn keeps a suitcase full of fresh $100 bills with him at all times in case he runs out of toilet paper. He’ll have to go back to using Charmin for a few weeks.

"A friendship did develop," Hinn said of White in Oakland on July 30. "Hear this: No immorality whatsoever. These people out there are making it sound like we had an affair. That's a lie."

Let’s judge this by normal moral standards. Let’s say you are a still married Benny Hinn and you’ve checked yourself into a swanky Italian hotel, in the presidential suit no less, and under an assumed name. Let’s also say that you are photographed leaving the hotel in the arms of Paula White. 2+2 = an affair. Sorry. My wife would bring out the machete.

And now for a little fun at Benny Hinn’s expense.

I poke fun at him because he’s a fraud. I poke fun at him because he’s desperate and Christians give him their money. I poke fun at him because he is in no way living the idealized “Christian life.” He’s living like a king on the spoils of on unethical enterprise. He is a complete and total fraud. We should all laugh at him, and we should all point at him an say hypocrite. But hypocrite is not really the right word here. He is actually practicing what he preaches. He is doing the exact opposite of a Christian. He’s feeding on the weak. I guess that does make him a Dark Lord of the Sith.
