->''"So you need a new car?\\
Let your fingers take a walk\\
Through the business guide\\
For the 'Born Again' flock\\
You'll be keeping all your money\\
In the Kingdom now\\
And you'll only drink milk\\
From a Christian cow"''

->Once upon a time, Christianity created its own enemy and called it Satanism. Everything was a matter of good and evil, plain and simple, black and white . . . but this is a gray world. The two extremes, Christ and Satan, finally merged in the Christian militia. There was always a powerful attraction there; now it's been fulfilled. Christ and Anti-Christ in one. Only took two thousand years.

->Benny Hinn is a televangelist, faith healer and sith lord of apparently staggering popularity and influence, whose main goal seems to be to [[KlingonPromotion wait for Billy Graham to die]] so that he can take over what he deems to be the leadership of evangelical fundamentalism in the US, for God has shown him that Graham’s death will mark the beginning of a huge American revival of religious fervor (meaning, of course, that you should start sending the money you send to Graham, to him instead).... In 2001, {{Creator/HBO}}’s ''America Undercover'' tried to follow up 5 of the people Hinn had allegedly healed at a particular crusade, but when HBO checked back a year later, none of the parishioners had been healed at all (two had died). Hinn, of course, blamed the dismal results on HBO. In reality, his assurance that his victims are well after his faith healing is rather likely to lead his victims to abort the treatments and medication schemes they are already using, so it is definitely not an innocent matter of innocuous faith. {{Creator/CBC}} later exposed Hinn’s tendency to use his church’s money for private purposes, and for [[{{Bouncer}} employing security guards disguised as men from the church]] to keep ''genuinely'' sick followers away from the stage so he doesn’t need to deal with them (or risk being exposed to something that he cannot heal). Even his efforts to combat the “twin evils” of Islam and secularism seem primarily to be [[MonsterProtectionRacket schemes to make money.]]
