Today I walked out of the train at Central station and I came face to face one of the few people who really get under my skin.
I’m talking about Benny Hinn.
Yes THE BENNY HINN is going on his tour around Australia and “blessing ” Brisbane with his presence.
Many of you already know how much I dislike this guy. Not only did he ruin perfectly good television time (after a night shift there is nothing worse than coming home to nothing but Benny Hinn ) but the fact that people believe his lies is just astounding.
I’m not here to preach, I’m not here to argue from a religious point of view (hell I’m not even christian) but he is just a man selling religion to people who have nowhere else to go.
Its one thing preaching religion to people, but convincing genuinely sick people that they are healed and charging them for the pleasure is just one big fat joke.
As the great Reverend George Carlin preached :
Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever ’til the end of time!
But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money!
I am more than willing to provide the same deal as Benny however I will be offering my services at a reduced price of$2 a pop. SImply give me the cash and I’ll slap some sense into you. Voila…..cured.
Everyone form a line, single file……
(** Update : Due to a stuff up I had with w.bloggar I posted an old version of the rambling.
The old version forgot to mention that I did’nt actually bump into Benny Hinn.
