Name: Benny Hinn
Age: 64
Occupation: snake oil salesman
Last Seen: ??
Bee-otched For: getting a visit from the taxman

One of the most-crooked men on TV just got a visit from the good 'ol IRS.

Televangelist Benny Hinn, best-known for his faith-healing methods that involve pushing people down as they're "blessed by the lord" had his ministry invaded by the IRS last week. The agency has been vague as to why Hinn's offices were raided and what the search warrant was for. Generally, an investigation like this is for tax evasion and lying to the federal government.

It's been discovered that Hinn might be simply taking money donated to himself. He was proposing building a $30 million "healing center" in the Dallas area that was never built. Ole Anderson runs the Trinity Foundation, which looks after religious groups like Hinn's. He's turned over countless documents to the IRS for over 20 years regarding Hinn. The preacher has been investigated by the IRS before back in 2005.
Hinn is the host of the daily show This is Your Day, which airs on several religious channels, namely TBN. He's known for his so-called "healing powers" that involve pushing people. Born in Israel, he immigrated to Canada as a teen where he became a superfan of Katheryn Kuhlman, a creepy old lady who also worked as a fake faith healer on TV. He founded his church in Orlando in 1983 and his TV debuted in 1989.

However, over the years, it's been discovered than Hinn - not to be confused with the severely-more-talented Benny Hill - has been living a lavish life. He lived in million-dollar mansions in Florida and California and his crew all flew first class and slept in five-star hotels. I remembered flipping channels one day and Hinn was doing his show.... from a yacht. Yes, a yacht.

Yet, this guy preaches from a man who told a rich young man that it's easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than for a rich man to go to Heaven.

Folks, it's sad when people like Hinn use the power of TV to get what he wants, and that's money. Over the years, many pastors who've done the same thing he did went on TV preaching their little "prosperity gospel" to swindle from the less-unfortunate. Thankfully for a few, they were caught and were thrown in jail. But sadly for some, like Jim Bakker, they end up coming back to pull the same shit all over again.

Hopefully, Jesus will touch Benny, especially when he's a prison bitch to a Mexican dude named "Jesus".
