Look What Joel Osteen Just Did To Harvey Victims—Millions Of Americans Offended
When members of the community are in need, they should be able to turn to churches for assistance.

Such was the case when Hurricane Harvey hit, but residents of the nation’s fourth-most populous city had to scratch one option off of their list.

The church in question finally opened its doors up to help out, but it managed to make another highly questionable decision after doing so.

The Independent Journal Review passes along the tale of a church and its pastor that have come under attack for questionable behavior during a time of crisis.

Joel Osteen, the pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, received criticism from what seemed like the entire internet, as he was accused of keeping the doors to his massive megachurch closed while flood victims had nowhere to stay.

The church responded to the criticism soon after by opening its doors for anyone who needed shelter. However, just days later, it got itself in trouble again, as it collected donations from the flood victims.

It started with Lisa Osteen, Joel’s sister, on stage asking anyone who was affected by Harvey to stand up.

It wasn’t too long before the collection plates came out, and that led to a ton of backlash for Osteen and company.
