A televangelist who claimed the gay community would suffer God’s punishment is suffering the wrath of the Internal Revenue Service: The Texas offices of Pastor Benny Hinn were raided by IRS investigators on Wednesday, though Hinn himself was not present.

So although he may be 100% orthodox with respect to homo ickiness, there's still a measure of the working of God's wrath in the IRS coming after him.

Hey!

At least the Clintons pay their taxes AND make their tax returns public knowledge. Or at least they do when running for office.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benny_Hinn

I've heard the name, but wasn't really familiar with him. An Israeli Christian? Did he never take US citizenship?
Toufik Benedictus "Benny" Hinn (born 3 December 1952) is an Israeli televangelist, best known for his regular "Miracle Crusades"—revival meeting or faith healing summits that are usually held in stadiums in major cities, which are later broadcast worldwide on his television program, This Is Your Day.[3]
