On the Rocks Alert, with a side order of Hairdresser:
The Benny Hinn divorce gets nastier

Publication: National Examiner
Date: 15 Mar. 2010

Until very recently, I didn't know Benny Hinn from Adam. Hinn is a televangelist on one of the 736 Stations of the Cross you can get on cable, but he doesn't make much of a splash politically like Rick Warren or James Dobson or Pat Robertson, so he's nowhere near my radar screen. Reading up on him a little bit, he believes in a prosperity gospel, not unlike Reverend Ike did and Jim Bakker did at one time before he repented his sin on this topic. Hinn was also blessed with the gift of prophecy, but sadly God gave him the cheaper version, the gift of completely incorrect prophecy. Hinn said back in the 1990s that the Eastern seaboard would be in ruins due to earthquakes before the end of the decade, and likewise that Fidel Castro would be dead before the year 2000. He also predicted that 1995 would see the destruction of the homosexuals in America. So, 0 for 3 for the Prophet Benny.

Regardless of his level of celebrity with the unwashed heathens like me, Hinn has built up a huge ministry and news of his divorce means a whole lot of money is going to be contested in court. The Examiner took up valuable cover space to let us know that there are rumors, just rumors, mind you, that he is gay.

So it's a lucky thing for Hairdresser Benny that the Prophet Benny was such a useless dud.

I can't remember what year in the 90's but so many people here in Florida followed him to Orlando and Tampa they literally sold their houses, all their property, income rentals, you name it, huge business for me in real estate, just to follow Hinn, to take up with his ministry. I read this post and wonder now what ever happened to those folks. All believers in this guy and they spent all their money following him all over the world to hear his sermon daily. What a way to spend retirement.

When you think about how many sheep and how many wolves there are in this world, it's hard to sleep at night.

I remember Rev. Ike said, "Do you have trouble with money? Send it to me. I know what to do with it." or something like that.

One glance at Hinn's snowy white preachy frock and carefully groomed coiffure are all one needs to suspect his sexual orientation.
He doesn't just look gay, he looks like a screaming queen of the pillow biter variety.
