Beaten Televangelist: I Love Him, But I'm Dumpin' Him!

9/6/2007 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He allegedly kicked, choked and stomped her, but televangelist/beating victim Juanita Bynum says she still loves her husband. Oh, God.


In an interview with FOX 5 Atlanta, Bynum talked about the almighty beatdown Bishop Thomas W. Weeks gave her in an Atlanta airport hotel parking lot last month -- and the divorce is now in progress. Can I get an amen?!


Bynum admits, "My love for him, separating what I experienced in that parking lot ... it's so much until I think I can marry him twice, but this one is over." Hallelujah!

Bynum also said it wasn't the first time her preacher hubby, who has since been charged with felony aggravated assault and making terrorist threats, had gotten physical with her -- though this last altercation was by far the worst. And apparently, his last.

This woman has made millions of dollars telling other women to stand up to their man and not take crap from the male species. Seems a tad ironic, no?

Just caue your husband is a man of god doesn't mean he's perfect. It DOES mean he's supposed to set an example and love his woman! What did she do to deserve a beat down like that? I think some "televangelist" are in it for the fame and easy money. Some of the mighty fall hard. Look at the Bakers. Now she needs to get tested for AIDS and see what other women her husband might have been beating.

Poor thing. I wish her the best. Unfortunately he's gonna ask Jesus for forgiveness and all will be forgiven in the Chrisitan community. It would be nice if he lost his church and all his fame but not likely. He'll write a book about how he did wrong and make more money. Maybe she'll get a tv show out of it or go on Oprah.

Go ahead and get the divorce. I'm sure you both have scammed enough money out of innocent naive saps to afford this divorce and still have money left over for 2 houses, 2 Bentley's, 2 Rolex watches and on and on and on.

I should care...why?

She's a frickin' hypocrite and I hope she doesn't work as an evangelist again ever. If you're going to preach and teach the Bible, then you gotta live by it too. The hubby was definitely wrong to give her the beat down, but divorce is wrong also and just because he did wrong doesn't justify her doing wrong as well.

I hope no poor, naive, misguided souls listen to her teaching from here on out. She obviously has no idea what the Bible is all about.

Disgusting.

I feel sorry for her, but there are a lot of preachers wives who get beat but you'd never know it. They enjoy the money, the big houses, cars, clothes and Jet setting around in their aircraft. It's more rampant than you think. I am the last person to judge, but many of these pop star/rock star/rap star preachers put themselves on top of the mountain and get caught up in the world and in the moment. Look at Reverend Jesse and his escapades with the outside child. Those people are put on pedestals and the only way left to go on earth is down. Can't stay on top unblemished forever while here on this earth. Get Ready Get Ready Get Ready Get Ready.
