Publisher: Benny Hinn violated our morality clause

Don't stand in line while you're on vacation. Buy skip-the-line tickets ahead of time.

A book publisher is suing televangelist and ‘faith healer’ Benny Hinn, saying he violated a morality clause in their contract when he began an “inappropriate relationship” with another evangelist, and thus, must pay $250,000.

The Orlando Sentinel writes:

In August, Hinn admitted to a friendship with evangelist Paula White after The National Enquirer published photos of them in Rome, holding hands.

Hinn was married at the time. His wife, Suzanne, had filed for divorce a few months earlier.

Three years earlier, Hinn had signed a three-book deal with Strang Communications Co. of Lake Mary. He was paid a $300,000 advance on the first one, “Blood in the Sand,” according to the suit.

Hinn acknowledged to his publisher “his inappropriate relationship” with White in August, according to the suit, and agreed that the publisher should get back its money, but he has yet to pay up.

According to the paper, Strang also accused Hinn of violating the contract by failing to work hard enough to market “Blood in the Sand”.

Our view: Why any Christian publisher would want to publish a book penned by Benny Hinn is beyond us, given the the man’s poor grasp of Christian theology — and a host of other problems surrounding his ‘ministry.’
