    Yes, that's right.. happy clapper Benny Hinn.

    From:
    Ministry solicits to pay for jet | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

    "This version of Benny and the jet has nothing to do with the hit Elton John song. "Benny" is Benny Hinn, the Dallas-area televangelist. The jet is Dove One, a Gulfstream G4SP that his ministry recently acquired, according to his Web site.

    Hinn's ministry did not return a call from the Houston Chronicle, but it has very publicly sought help paying for the plane. Hinn wants 6,000 of his "partners" to donate $1,000 each toward the down payment. Extensive information about Dove One on the Web site doesn't include the total cost, but similar Gulfstream jets appear to sell for at least $30 million."

    According to his TV show it is second hand, oh and if you pay $1000 you get your name on the inside of the plane. BARGAIN!

    So the charlatan joins the ranks of some of the most vocal and prominent environmentalists.

    Always "do as I say, not as I do" with these guys....

    I wonder if he has room to park it outside his $10 million beachside house, or his ranch, or his holiday property (all paid for by his followers although he calls them "partners"). Given his $2 million a year salary you would think he could pay for his own J and F tickets:rolleyes:

    This just shows how gullible Americans really are ... particularly those in the deep south - where I suspect most of his "donations" come from.

    He's just another Jim Bakker, Ted Haggard, Jimmy Swaggart ... the list goes on.

    This guy is a charlatan and a fraud.

    He should be grounded for good and treated to a little hospitality in Leavenworth, Kansas - where all the bad preachers go ...

    Been thinking about starting a cult.... a Learjet sounds like a nice incentive! :D

    Notice how if you pay Benny you don't even get a free ride..... what a scrooge. At least I will give my proselytes a spin around the city if they pay a decent chunk.

    He's certainly got about as much substance as the bearded, free-loving, orange man did!

    OOooh I can't wait til Hillsong get their own Hillsong Jet, or perhaps the Hillsong Hornet. Its followers can get a ride if they pay an extra 10% on the fare! but hey, they'll throw in a free Gloria Jeans coffee with it.

    As this is degenerating into questionable taste jokes and comments, this is a good time for closure
