The Ugandan tabloid Red Pepper is an instrument of that nation’s ruling family, and it is periodically used by corrupt Uganda evangelicals — among them, Martin Ssempa — to mobilize vigilantes to violently attack and kill dissident pastors and human-rights advocates as well as LGBT people. Truth Wins Out has previously reported on Red Pepper, and Box Turtle Bulletin has substantial additional detail.

The tabloid’s stunning defamatory article about prosperity preacher Benny Hinn, while timely in its publication alongside Hinn’s pending divorce, is likely an attempt by rival evangelicals to destroy Hinn.

As despicable as Hinn may be for his worship of mammon and his trivialization of spirituality, this tabloid is NOT to be trusted.
