NEVER Interrupt Benny Hinn!

From yesterday's New Zealand Herald:

Benny Hinn and Tourette's

5:00AM Sunday June 10, 2007

They came in their droves to feel the power of teflon televangelist Benny Hinn.

It's Friday night and Benny's in the house - the house of God - and in Benny's house no kids are allowed in the aisles, no talking during the anointing and, apart from an occasional "amen" and "hallelujah", no chatter permitted at all.

And that's without exceptions, as one woman apparently suffering from Tourette's syndrome discovered when she was rudely ushered out of Benny's house, Auckland's Vector Arena.

"Shut up. You cannot be speaking when I am preaching. Nobody can do that here. We cannot allow people to be speaking back to me when I am ministering the word," Hinn yelled.

Pastor Hinn required conformity from an audience, which included many who were sick and had come to be healed.

"I have come to give you the word of the Lord," Hinn proclaimed. And the Lord sure does move in mysterious ways.

According to surely one of his best-paid prophets, it's estimated Hinn's annual income is US$100-$200 million.

"This is the house of the Lord. Don't let your children play in the aisles."

To a second parent, Hinn insisted: "This is not your house and not a football stadium."

Another churchgoer was also humiliated in front of the 7000-strong audience, this time a lone man, who was discovered wandering around the auditorium.

"Would you please find a seat? You must understand, distraction kills the anointing and I won't allow no one to distract me, so sit down now. I am not going to change," Hinn snapped.

The thing I find most disturbing about this is that he is giving Christianity a bad name.
