Benny Hinn's 2009 tour

It seems faith healer Benny Hinn is staying below the press' radar. Yet he's on tour this year and while admission to his miracle crusades are free, the hotels and theology aren't. He has some video ads for the services as well as other promotional items on his website.

Anyone here ever been to one of these? He still pulls in thousands of desperate people:

The 1.5-million-square-foot David L. Lawrence Convention Center hosted 18 of the 25 largest Pittsburgh-area conventions in 2007. Of those, 17 attracted between 1,500 and 4,000 people. Those included events sponsored by Benny Hinn Ministries and Anthrocon's "Furries" -- which drew 4,000 and 2,500 attendees, respectively. The largest was East Coast Volleyball's NorthEast Qualifier, which drew 10,000.

Oh, no Guaymas event. I guess I'll re-bury the box of eggs until 2010.

I used to LOVE watching Benny Hinn when I was a kid. I always got a laugh when he'd repeatedly slap the little old bald guy on the head and get chased around by English bobbies and scantly dressed women. Some hilarious British 1960s/1970s "camp" for sure!

Oh wait... my bad! You said HINN not HILL! Either way Hinn or Hill, both are "silly".
