IRS investigating televangelist's operation, report says
http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/metropolitan/3...

The Internal Revenue Service is looking into the operations and finances of televangelist Benny Hinn's organization, according to a published report.

The IRS wouldn't discuss the case, but a representative for Benny Hinn Ministries confirmed to The Dallas Morning News that the inquiry is under way, characterizing it as routine.

Critics have argued that Hinn improperly profits from a ministry that hasn't met the IRS definition of a church for years. The ministry is estimated to raise more than $100 million a year.

1. Cool! It's a start but
the IRS will be accused of religious intolerance and persecution.
Wait for it.
