I recently went to one in New York. Before going, I knew little about Hinn — a man who’s worth some $42 million — other than that he’s a big-deal televangelist among countless charismatic Christians.

It is not that I am anti-Catholic. In fact, I know Catholics who I believed are truly saved, etc., but I have also experienced their opposition and people I have pastored some 48 years ago were threatened by some Catholics with physical violence simply for opposing a state school bus bill in Missouri. I am also aware of how the Moderates went rushing to South Carolina during the Pope’s visit there about 25 years ago, and it makes me wonder to see some of our Conservatives seeing the Pope on a personal basis.
