Benny's aircraft. When Benny heard that 'the meek shall inheret the Earth ’ he said, "SCREW THAT!"
Here's the idiot in action
There's nothing in scripture (I'm aware of) that says a man will have this type of power.

I "wikipedia'ed" Benny Hinn and it said he was a follower of Kathryn Kuhlman's. That's going back a ways, but what a freakshow she was. :eek:
I was raised in very mainstream Protestantism, among people with no tolerance for these theatrics. I remember my mother's mother as a very serious, sedate woman. My mother said that when she was a child, in the 1920s, grandmother was invited to a tent revival by a neighbor, and went, to be polite. It was all fire and brimstone and people writhing and yodeling (excuse me, speaking in "tongues"). Mother said they had to leave hurriedly because my grandmother was so convulsed in laughter. She managed to hold a handkerchief over her mouth as they exited, so people would think she was overcome with emotion, instead of derision!
I'm skeptical of most preachers in general, because I knew what kind of man my Grandaddy was Monday through Saturday. He got paid $50 a week from the church and put it right back in the collection plate. To me that is what a preacher is suppose to be like.
Pat Robertson gets on my nerves, but I wouldn't call him sleazy. I'm pretty sure he's smart enough to keep the money straight in his organization.
Benny Hinn is sleazy, so is Jack Van Impe (although he has the added fun benefit fo being deranged).
No one currently is as good at the sleaze as Jim Bakker was in the heydays of PTL. After I watched the show a couple of times, I found it hard to believe that so many people sent him money-he was so obviously a fraud. When the wife gives the minister a pair of giraffes for his birthday, well, you just know that money isn't going to teach little children in Africa about Jesus.
Male - Joel Osteen
Female - Joyce Meyer
Both are prophets of profit.
