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.

My prayers go out to her and any woman who is or has been a battered woman. Most people will never understand how hard it is to get out especially when you love that person. The good times if good enough will make you forget the bad ones. For all those with something stupid to say imagine if it was you, your sister, your mother, or your daughter. I pray that her faith gets her through these hard times.

What does she mean respect her privacy or not. Sheall over the news and she had a press release. She says this is not the first time but, earlier she said this was the first time he put his hands on her. I heard some one called her and told her to go to the hotel that he was there and she could catch him there with another man. Now BET released that she questioned his relationship with other men in the church. She thought he was to close with them. She thought he was gay that 's probly what she called him before snapped.

This is a woman who stole from God and Gods people.

She used her ill gottn gains to fatten her own wallet.

There is no way she is going to Heaven or any one of her followers.

False teachers like this should be arested and sendt to jail.

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT ANYONE IS EXEMPT FROM, RATHER IT BE A PREACHER, HIS WIFE, KIDS ETC. JUST BECAUSE A PERSON HAS BEEN CALLED TO THE GOSPELOF CHRIST DOES NOT MAKE THEM PERFECT, IT'S BECAUSE OF GOD WHY WE ARE MADE TO SIN-LESS OUR SINS ARE WHAT SEPARATE US FROM HIM, BUT BY GENERALLY HAVING A LICENSE TO PREACH DOESN'T MAKE US EXEMPT FROM BEING LIKE THIS WORLD, OUR FLESH IS WEAK, AND WHEN WE TAKE OUR FOCUS OFF OF GOD, THE HOLY ONE WE ALWAYS FALL SHORT, U HAVE TO STAY FOCUSSED ON JESUS AT ALL TIMES, READING YOUR BIBLES, PRAYING ALL DAY, EVERYDAY, FELLOWSHIPING WITH OTHERS, STAYING IN COMMUNICATION WITH HIM AT ALL TIMES. LET'S JUST NOT JUDGE THEM BECAUSE WE TO ARE ABLE TO BE JUDGED AND WILL BE ONEDAY SOON.

GOD BLESS YOU AND LET'S CONTINUE TO PROMOTE PEACE UNTIL OUR HOME GOING.

Just another televangelist-con-artist manipulating money out of the poor, lonely, and naive. How many people could that million dollars this hypocrite could have clothed and fed rather than WASTING it on that pretentious, gawdy public spectacle of a wedding? She deserves EXACTLY what she got as far as I'm concerned! I wish people who support this con-woman and her ilk would finally get a clue and stop sending hundreds of millions of their hard-earned dollars to these idiots who take the money and spend it on THEMSELVES by buying mansions, vacation homes, luxury vehicles, Rolex watches, huge diamonds, etc. rather than giving it to feed, clothe, and educate the needy. Personally, I believe the IRS needs to yank the tax free status from EVERY televangelist because NONE of them are churches - they're on TV for God's sake!!!!!

Tax free staus is so that Charities can operate.
It is not meant for personal bissness.
If they took money that was tax free for a charity and spendt it on themslfs then they are
gulity of Tax fraud. The IRS should put a lean on everything they own.

Money was for the church not thier croke habit.

LansingAnn said: "Just caue your husband is a man of god doesn't mean he's perfect."

Beating someone is a little more severe than 'not being perfect'. Talk about understatement.

If a Realtor showed you a house without a roof, and then said 'well, no house is perfect' --would you buy it?!
