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.

If you're stupid enough to give that guy money so he can live in the luxury he things God wants him to shame on you. If you're that concerned with humanity and goodness why not contribute to local food bank?

That dude that confronted him was a trip... just the way he talked and his body language was, let's just say, interesting! Too funny. What isn't funny are creeps like Hinn. Boy there must be some really stupid or desperate people out there if they are going to/through a guy like Hinn to [try &] solve their problems. Yikes.

Benny Hill might be a scammer, but he was so funny when he would chase that old man around and than hit him on the head.

It is really easy for scam artists to pilfer money from Christians, considering that 76% of Americans blindly follow that religious cult, even in the face of laughable evidence. But, what is more vulgar than his thievery, is the arrogant and blatant manner that he lives his own life in flamboyant wealth. He stays in the Presidential Suites of Hotels at a cost of $10,000.00 per night. He owns a private jet. He has at least two cars worth $80,000.00 each. His home is worth about 5 million dollars. There is paragraph after paragraph citing outrageous flamboyance for himself, his wife, his daughter and her fiance.
.
Hinn is a regular at Beverley Hills Clothing Store like Versace, Louis Vuitton, and Bijam where Hinn’s name is on the window along with Princes and heads of State.
.
He brings in 500 million dollars per year, yet he is begging believers to help him get out of debt. Many people can't afford things for themselves, but they are giving their money to him because they are weak sheep who are afraid of a God that is not even proven or sensible.

Not all people, some people are so desparate to have their pain taken away that they want to believe that this man can help them! But that is a problem, because god wants you to come to him for help not benny hinn! He is just supposed to be a teacher for god! And that clown is taking advantage of the weak desperate people, that are truly hurting!

I worked at a venue many times when Binny Hinn scammes people. I saw backstage people who were in walkers and wheelchairs on stage and behind stage they were walking.If he was a true healer he would do it out of the goodness of his heart

No one is going to mention that guy's voice? I'm pretty sure that is the reason they kept him talking. They knew that was Benny Hinn, right?
