In God we trust (ish)

I read with surprise that TV evangelist and infamous faith healer Benny Hinn was admitted to hospital last week. Apparently, while peddling his particular brand of snake oil in Brazil, Hinn experienced some heart problems and upon returning to California was admitted to an intensive care unit in Orange County; since then he's been seeing a specialist cardiologist and receiving treatment; I guess he can afford the best (unlike the people he "heals").

You have to wonder why a committed faith healer like Hinn would need the full panoply of modern (private) medicine, surely he can just thump himself on the chest while yelling "heeeeealed" and be right as rain?
