Last summer, when the National Enquirer ran photos of Benny Hinn and Paula White in Rome holding hands, many came to Hinn’s defense, despite the fact that Hinn never publicly admitted the photos were wrong. They admitted they were in Rome together, even though Hinn contradicted himself more than once when explaining how they got there.
Hinn and White quickly issued statements that basically said the photos, as well as their relationship, were taken out of context. Well, apparently, Hinn’s book publisher, Strang Communications, believes there may be validity to the National Enquirer’s story and are now suing Hinn for violating the morality clause in the contract he signed with the publisher.
This is from an article in the Orlando Sentinel:
“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.
Hinn’s lawyer, Miles Archer Woodlief of Mill Valley, Calif., did not return a phone call Thursday.”
If what Strang Communications alleges in the lawsuit turns out to be true, Hinn should be held responsible for lying to the public when he said his relationship with White was only friendly.
Stay tuned for more developments in this case.
