Two TV preachers who have been the focus of U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley’s televangelism inquiry were photographed together in Rome, holding hands as they walked through the eternal city.
One, Benny Hinn, is undergoing a divorce from his wife. The other, Paula White, recently divorced her husband.
The picture and a write up is in the latest issue of the National Enquirer.
White and Hinn have admitted that they met up in Rome. But they say they were both there, coincidentally, on business, and that nothing inappropriate happened.
Both preachers have issued statements with remarkably similar wording.
Hinn’s statement is titled:
Pastor Benny Responds to False and Misleading News Reports
White’s statement is titled:
PASTOR PAULA RESPONDS TO FALSE AND MISLEADING ARTICLE
