Joel Osteen: My Views Against Homosexuality Will Never Change — VIDEO


Perhaps getting caught tapping his foot in a men's room stall will eventually change megachurch pastor Joel Osteen's views on scripture.

  4. A closed mind is the result of a closed heart.

  7. It would cost him financially if he changed his views. Homophobia brings in the bucks.

  8. My gaydar gets pretty heated whenever I hear or see this fraud vent. One of the biggest con games out there.

  9. Joel Osteen has a $10.5Mil (primary) home and has a net worth in excess of $40Mil. Homophobes pay his bills, why should he change?

  11. I will say this...this man never preaches hate. His messages are always positive. And while he may have anti-gay views, his messages are always about loving everyone. Does his breath smell like cock? Sure!

  12. I have to hand it to Piers for calling him out about the death penalty, ( Joel has to think about it) abortion, ( joel says its wrong to kill - see above) being gay, ( it's in the bible) - Joel was all over the map with his answers and Piers just kept on and kept on...Joel had difficulty smiling after a while, as did his "wife".

  13. I don't understand why we do this to ourselves: several comments, as well as the original article, imply that this rather despicable man is secretly gay. And yes, I know that's a thing, Larry Craig and Mark Foley and George Rekers and the list goes on. But surely it's not EVERY homophobe out there, and we do ourselves a disservice by hurling "gay!" as an insult with nothing to back it up. Would being gay invalidate his views? Please, let's stop this awful and insulting practice of shrieking rather vulgar insinuations that someone is gay the moment they say something homophobic.

  14. He doesn't hate anybody, he just hates you being who you are.

  15. Osteen's not gay but he may have a gay older brother. A friend of mine swears he had sex with him. I bet they keep him under wraps. I do not believe Joel is gay, however. Just a creep.

  16. People who get their values out of a book are not to be trusted. He is only as deep as allowed by sheets of paper and only as compassionate as allowed by 4th Century Clergy.

    We need to move on and let these types of unlearned folk mouth the same hoary lines to each other over and over until they take on the veneer of some reality they feel safe in. We will never change them and frankly I don't care. Life is too important and full to bother anymore.

    If he had been fortunate enough to been born gay, he would have long ago learned how to live his own truth.

  17. Joey, you are not giving 4th century clergy enough credit. _Same-Sex Unions in Premodern Europe_ by John Boswell. Check it out.

    Joel Osteen and his 'prosperity gospel' have as much to do with authentic Christianity as Kim Jong Il's left pinkie toe. That American 'evangelicals' accept him as legit says volumes about their integrity. To the aforementioned 4th century clergy, he would be unrecognizable.

  18. I think a lot of people pick and choose the passages in the bible that suit them which is what this fella is doing because, I can only guess, he is a self loathing gay man.

    The bible is anti gay, anti women and incredibly violent among other things. I would hope that someday we will get to the point in our society where we can laugh at the idea of the bible being a source of morality in out lives.

  19. Money talks. Pray and give money and in return you'll get more money. Pathetic.

  20. The bible has WAY TOO MANY contradictions. It is then no surpise that "preachers" cherry-pick those verses that suit them, so they can control the fearful and ignorant, and while they are at it, put their eager hands out for $$$$'s. After all, they all claim, it takes a lot of money to run a successful ministry....Funny that Jesus himself had little or no use for money....and he CERTAINLY DID NOT live in a multi-million mansion. Just sayin'....

  21. Zell, I too disagree with labeling every homophobe as secretly gay. Some are just evil bitches. But preacher man has gayface galore.

  22. Why is it that the "born again" are so often the people you wish hadn't been born in the first place?

    "God" has a tendency to agree with whoever is citing Him, you may have noticed. All the laws and rules that are inconvenient to the speaker are dismissed as Biblical trifles while the rules for other people are ironclad. Just look at Joel Osteen and his "prosperity gospel" for instance. The Bible says a camel pass could through the eye of a needle easier than a rich man could get into Heaven and Jesus threw the money changers out of the temple. Yet out of that Joel Osteen got that Jesus wants you to rich? Well that's a novel interpretation!

    Like Zell says I do think it's a mistake to assume all public homophobes are secretly gay. Yes, some of them are but a great many just hate because that's what they are, hateful people. Or they're exploiting it as a "wedge issue" to gain money, votes, and power.

  23. yet another man who talks to the weak and the poor about the "sin" of homosexuality all the while he lives a life of wealth and luxury that Christ would have been disgusted by.

    Ezekiel 16 - the "sin of Sodom" was the hoarding of resources and money, not sexual activity.

  24. JO's issues are largely his alienation from other baptist ministers. He's kinda off in his own little world, primarily playing to a TV audience. It's the theological disputes he would get into with his near-peers that would really upset him. Don't forget that we have Camping's new apocalypse date this month. Keep your eyes peeled.

  25. My feelings about people like YOU Joel will also never change.Once a bigot always a bigot.
