6. Joel is just one more in a long line of snake oil salesmen ...

.... and he knows it too. Norman Vincent Peale's "Power of Positive Thinking"
is just now repackaged in Joel Osteen's God loves you and has big plans for you
act.

If God is so anti Gay and all powerful than why does he keep letting all those
gay babies keep getting born?

9. He's just another health and wealth preacher. That's how he justifies his greed.

20. + a gazillion

And, he really packs them in at the "arena" he bought in Houston--thousands of malleable sycophants seeking justification for their greed and hatred of gays.

19. The Scriptures also say obscene wealth is a sin

That, however, never seemed to bother Brother Joel, now did it?

21. I worked the phone line on a televangelist

TV show. We read from a script to try and squeeze every dime out of the emotional callers. Needless to say,I couldn't do it. But I know the disgusting means these wonderful people will go to for the money. And if the caller was crying,you click a little box and another script talking point came up to really guilt them into more cash. Religious my ass,money is their religion.--Please note I am talking about the large TV preachers.
