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.

Desease control    

I was down troden and broken man.
I went to the Chruch Of the Holy High Rollers.
The Bishop stood there in his 5,000 custome made suite and told me I would go to hell if I didnt give him some money. well i knew that wasnt true just by looing at him.
So I prayed and sang songs then when the Bishop was leaving I asked him if HE COULD LOAN A BROTHER A FEW BUCKS TO GET A hMABURGER
HE SAID NO AND DROVE OFF IN HIS 100,000 CAR.

THAT WAS REALY WRONG I AM HOMELESS BUT IF ANOTHER HOMELESS MAN ASK ME FOR MONEY FOR A HAMBURGER I SHARE WHAT I HAVE
IT HINK THE BISHOP WELL REMBER ME WHEN HE GOES TO HELL AND IS SCREAMING OUT MY NAME TO HELP HIM.

How can you possibly love someone who doesn't love you enough NOT to beat the daylights out of you? Seriously... I was waiting for her to use the f word.. That she forgives him... Religion is the best excuse to allow yourself to be treated like garbage and take it.

Shame on you!    

Shame on you for passing judgment! The fact is a woman was attacked by her husband. Being a preacher or not has nothing to do with domestic violence.

It's called Christianity. Love and Forgiveness is the foundation. Something Judaism will never be accused of, unless forgiveness came with a check. Thanks for the Christian bashing Harveystein. Damn, your people killed Christ, isnt that enough?

why    

I think Christian-bashing is bad, but bashing other people should be bad, too, Rusty.

You said "Damn, your people killed Christ, isnt that enough?"

First of all you swear,and secondly, you forget that Christ was one of "his people," too!

Christians essentially follow the Jewish faith, with the difference being Christians recognize the Messiah already arrived and follow His teachings.

So either Rusty is a bad representative of Christianity, or isn't really one and is using it for trolling.

why    

"Nasty" (the person who likes to post in all caps)

Your allegations are very serious, but the way you present them is a joke.

If you really have information or think they should be investigated, you should contact authorities or give convincing evidence in a more sober manner.

I am sure it is possible they are corrupt.

But you seem more motivated to insult than to see justice served. I hope I am wrong.
