Outrage over preacher who ‘cures cancer’ by hitting people

Todd Bentley is obviously insane.. criminal

An American evangelist who reportedly strikes his followers in a bid to cure them of cancer has provoked controversy ahead of his visit to the United Kingdom, with one MP urging the government to ban him from entering the country.

Todd Bentley, who is reported by the Daily Mail as having been convicted of a sexual attack on a seven-year-old when he was 15, is to tour Britain later this month.

The tattooed preacher, who shot to prominence four years ago through his church, Fresh Fire Ministries, claims God uses him to heal the sick. However, it is his ‘healing techniques’ which have caused outrage.

In one show he is filmed kneeing a colon cancer sufferer in the stomach, with the man falling to the floor. In another a man is pushed over on stage and loses a tooth, reports the Daily Mail.

On one Youtube clip he says: “And I’m thinking why is the power of God not moving? And He said, Because you haven’t kicked that woman in the face.

“And there is this older lady worshipping right in front of the platform and the Holy Spirit spoke to me. The gift of faith comes on me. He said, “Kick her in the face with your biker boot.” I inched closer and I went bam! And just as my boot made contact with her nose, she fell under the power of God.”

Labour MP for Croydon North Malcolm Wicks wants Home Secretary Theresa May to ban Mr Bentley.

He said: “His visit can do nothing but harm and I would be grateful for any measures you can take.

    That, Dan Cathy ….or any other American wealthy sonofafuckinbitchbicycleaddict… who feels they have the religious mores to dictate to us, by virtue of their wealth, is wearing thin. Yup…another American revolution is in the offing. Coming soon… a theater near you!

    What a sick man. I pray that God hits him over the head with some good common sense and some good theology. I’m pretty sure that the healings done in the Bible were never ever accompanied by violence in order to facilitate the person’s recovery. The people in these videos are so desperate to be healed of their sicknesses, and perhaps even more so, healing in their souls, how dare he take advantage of them in general!….but to actually go further and abuse them!!! Disgusting.
