Florida preacher Todd Bentley may be barred from touring the UK based on his outrageous claims of healing the sick with punches and kicks:
The tattooed leader of Fresh Fire Ministries, based in Lakeland, Florida, plans on touring the UK this month, the Daily Mail reports. Several citizens, however, are begging officials to ban Bentley from the country, citing the preacher’s violent healing tactics as potentially harmful.
In one interview, Bentley claims that the “Holy Spirit” told him to kick an ill elderly woman in the face with his biker boot.
“Just as my boot made contact with her nose,” the 36-year old said, “she fell under the power of God.”
In another video segment, the preacher claims he cured a man of both cancer and a broken sternum by socking him in the chest.
