This site won the Anus Maximus Award in the 2002 Millenium Awards. The award citation said:
When I first wrote about faith healer Benny Hinn, I said:
Benny Hinn is evidence that there is no God. For those who have been lucky enough to avoid this creature and don't know who he is, Hinn is a faith healer who pretends to cure people by calling on help from Jesus. He goes through the same old, tired ritual that all of these charlatans seem to use - calling up people from the audience, describing their terrible ailments, pushing them over into the arms of his accomplices, bellowing "Hallelujah!", and, of course, passing the plate around. The reason that I say that this is evidence that God does not exist is that any decent God would strike Hinn into a smouldering pile of slimy ashes for blasphemy, lying, and stealing money from desperate people.
Nothing I have seen by or about him since then has changed my opinion about Hinn. Amazingly, people seem to think that by criticising this charlatan I am somehow attacking God or Jesus or religion. This is similar nonsensical thinking as that which says that criticising some outrageous health fraud is an attack on all alternative medicine. Hinn has nothing to do with religion or God. Hinn is a thief who steals people's money and hopes by pretending to be a preacher. He gives religion a bad name.
Go here to see a report of a night out trying to see Benny Hinn in action.
Go here to see some mail I have received about my comments on this page.
Amazingly, some people think I am Benny Hinn. You can see that mail here.
Proving how easy it is to duplicate Hinn's act, the Millenial Power
is used to heal a woman of the sin of lust in a bar
across the road from the Benny Hinn Show.
In April 2007, Hinn complained to YouTube about this original creation by Richard Saunders and claimed that it violated Hinn's copyright. He was bluffing (a polite word for it), and negotiations with YouTube are going on to have it restored. You can see more here.
Things that have been happening for far too long (21/8/2003)
Religion is not necessarily bad, although I can do without it personally. It becomes a problem when it raises the expectations of people who are desperate, in just the same way that medical quackery does. Faith healing combines the two evils. I have mentioned before that some people seem to be confused and think that I am Benny Hinn, just because this site comes up on search engines when you look for his name. I am not sure how this confusion is maintained, as it should be obvious that the expression "slimy charlatan" would hardly be used to describe Hinn on his own site. Perhaps they have seen the Benny Hinn-style healing that I do as an occasional stage act.
I received an email this week intended for Hinn, and it demonstrates why the battle against the scammers who steal money by using the name of God is important. What this lady needs is a proper doctor, not someone who will take her money, blow on her forehead, and then forget her and move on to the next mark.
I am requesting prayer for my body, I have had several TIA's ( small strokes) and consequently sugery preforned on both carotid arteries. However since the surgery, the first symptom I had has returned. My left foot goes numb and the left side of my face. Also I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalga which is arthritis of the ham strings, and sinues and muscles of the body. Any illness or trama to the body makes the Fibromyalga worse, and I am experiencing aches and pains all over. Also would you please send me the magazine Benny Hinn sends to xxxxx. Thank you very much for your prayers and your teachings
