The living embodiment of corruption in organized religion, “prosperity” preacher Joel Osteen, was publicly pilloried last week for his reluctance to use his 16,000 seat megachurch to house environmental refugees fleeing the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.

Pavlovitz breaks down in surgical detail how the luxury and splendor that Osteen lives in is anathema to everything that the Christian religion is supposed to stand for.

He goes on to shame Osteen by reminding him of all the people who risked their lives and toiled and suffered to help save others while Osteen sat in his mansion, safe and dry.
