Televangelist Benny Hinn

Heckled at Airport

'World's Greatest Scammer'

Televangelist Benny Hinn is a legendary scam artist who steals sick people's social security checks in the name of bogus faith healing -- at least according to one loudmouthed heckler at LAX, who's damn lucky Hinn's security didn't kick his ass.

60-year-old Hinn was making his way through LAX Friday with 5 bodyguards when the heckler sounded off ... big time ... calling Hinn the "world's greatest scammer" among other things. The man then continues his tirade after Hinn gives him the cold shoulder. Watch the clip.

But despite some death stares from Hinn's security, the man was left unscathed , which is surprising ... because Hinn's previous heckler wasn't so lucky.

One of Hinn's close advisers tells TMZ, Hinn's security had pounced on another heckler just days before in Brazil when the man threatened the master pastor during a sermon.

Hinn's rep says the heckler was "peacefully removed" from Hinn's audience ... but when the man became violent, he had to be "subdued." And you know what that means.

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Beatdown.

What's interesting to me is that it's never reported how the Kardashians/Jenner's are booed at public events. I went to one of these with my granddaughter and was horrified by the slurs and boos that were thrown their way. And they smiled through it all. Called tramps,, whores etc. never a word on any of these sites

TMZ--how about you write a story about how Scott Disick went off in a foul mouthed rant at a bunch of women in Florida yesterday? Or won't pimp mama allow that story on here?

Judging form the comments here, it answers the question about why he needs bodyguards.

His security probably knew that they'd get their asses sued off for 'subduing' a guy who was just speaking his mind and not actually being a threat. I say props to the guy for telling it like it is.

Oh, wait, did we just hear a CRAZY ANGRY MAN in LAX say something about Hinn and suddenly we believe it and broadcast it? WOW!!! Now THAT'S the reason why people HATE the media. No, the biggest scammer is BARACK MILHOUS HUSSEIN OBAMA!

All priests, pastors, preachers and other "church leaders" are scammers to a degree.
What else would anyone call someone selling a fantasy and myth. All master shills and liars.

Have you noticed how when he slays them in the spirit he clasps the throat of the women, and mincingly flaps the boys on their backs, making jovial changing room fun with the holy boys? His special favourites.
