Fiji church protests Benny Hinn visit

Sect protests against Hinn

A church group is protesting against the Government’s decision to approve evangelist Benny Hinn to preach in Fiji.

The Liberty church said it would launch another campaign this week and lobby government ministers including the heads of the bigger denominations in Fiji.

Liberty Baptist church pastor Navi Bola said the Immigration department was wrong when it said no individual or organisation protested against Mr Hinn.

“I personally delivered packets which showed the questionable characters of Mr Hinn to their minister,” Pastor Bola said.

He said even though the Government supported Mr Hinn’s coming to Fiji, the nation should know what kind of people they would listen to.

“I cannot believe that the organisers of this crusade want to ask the Government to waiver Mr Hinn’s visa application fee. He flies around in a jet and stays in expensive hotels. It says a lot about the whole thing,” he said. Immigration said it looked favourably at Mr Hinn’s visa application.

Mr Hinn is scheduled to hold a two-day crusade in Suva.
