Take 1 million dull-minded people and one master of manipulative magic, and this is what you get.

I absolutely love some comments you get in videos like this.

KevServo writes, "Benny is hilarious. In fact, he's inspired me to become a faith healer, except instead of touching people (since that's Benny's schick), I use a Blessed Baseball Bat."

It has also been claimed by Benny Hinn's flock that the devil made his wife File for divorce.

No one is better than Chuck Norris.Chuck Norris can drown a catfish!
This is a man that can slam a revolving door!

Bruce Lee was better, in all seriousness.

Back to the subject at hand,I think it is hilarious to watch all of these full grown men and women, all pretending to be "healed" by this man.

It's like watching children holding on to the last shred of imagination they have left.It's as though church is the last place they can pretend. . .

These people need to watch fetish porn. . .

Unfortunately, my outright hatred of those fuckers makes it impossible to appreciate the humor that is obviously there. I simply cannot tell which sickens me the most. Those plastic looking fakers, or the less than stupid idiots who fall for that crap.
Oh...wait...I think I made a funny.

The Wilhelm Scream near the end completely made that video. XD

I love watching stuff like this, since it shows just how easy the average person is to control. Sure, there's probably a whole ton of stage magic going on in order to effectively suggest such a large group of people, but the payoff is absolutely worth it.

Magicians say the most important psychological aspect of their art is suspension of disbelief, but why suspend it when you can remove it entirely?

"Hopefully, the ordeal will go alright and will not affect Benny Hinnís work."

Work? Pushing people over?

I find televangelists kind of fascinating. The fact that it IS all show business, that there are these things that go on behind the scenes which no one sees, all the while invested in this idealized holy image.

I think though the most effective preachers are the hell and brimstone ones. They're more emotionally evolved in their work anyway and have more of an evocative quality.

Incidentally, I'm also a fan of this guy.
