Benny Hinn Will Not "Walk About With Sandals and Ride Bicycles," Got That?
In case you missed it, Nightline last night scored a rare interview with Benny Hinn, who, of course, is HQ'd out of Irving. It'll be interesting for those wondering if he really resurrected the dead ("I had no proof he was dead, that's what they told me") or how Sen. Charles Grassley's investigation into televangelists is going (Hinn, unlike Fort Worth's Kenneth Copeland, is one of the few to cooperate).
Hinn, who insists he has "nothing to hide" but doesn't want his financials released to the media, tells ABC's Dan Harris, "Look, you know there's this idea supposedly that we preachers are supposed to walk about with sandals and ride bicycles. That's nonsense." But as Gawker points out, the best parts come when "Incompetent superflack Ronn [sic] Torossian" keeps interrupting the interview, much to Hinn's chagrin.
