Today’s game card – Benny Hinn

August 11th, 2008 Posted in Game Cards

Benny Hinn, not to be confused with dodgy comedian Benny Hill, is an American faith healer, who has earned a stupendous amount of money by convincing people that he can heal them of all sorts of life-threatening diseases. Actually, to give him his due, it was God doing the healing – Hinn is just a vector. Or at least, he claims to be.  So far, as far as I know, there are zero scientific papers detailing any cases of miraculous healing, either caused by Hinn or any of the other thousands upon thousands of faith healers busy leeching money from the vulnerable across the globe.  And the danger is, of course, that people will refuse conventional medical treatment, believing that Hinn or any other similarly immoral parasite has actually cured them.

Hinn has also been known to turn his as-yet unremarkable talents towards prophesy, making a startling number of predictions over the last decade that have, so far, totally failed to come to pass.  Such as the destruction of the homosexual community of America in the mid-nineties by an angry and vengeful god.  Oh, did I fail to mention that he’s a bigot and a homophobe too? Of course he is…

You’ll notice that Hinn gets a very low stupidity score, which is due to the fact that he clearly knows exactly what’s going on.  And, because, of that, he gets a very high ‘evil’ score for giving people advice that may well, if it hasn’t already, result in a death. Though I didn’t give him a ten because I’m saving that for a very special person.  I gave him a 9/10 for wealth because, as far as I know, his faithful devotees haven’t yet coughed up the $36m he has been requesting since 2006 to pay for a personal private jet.  Well, his ministry is important folks, so he has to get around somehow and it might as well cost $600,000 a year – after all, that money would only be wasted on good causes otherwise.

There’s no denying it – Benny Hinn is a thoroughly sick and manipulative individual, whose devious yet apparently legal activities make a mockery out of the US justice system.  And here he is folks, in all his smugness.
