Joel Osteen Tells Soledad O’Brien: LGBT People Aren’t ‘God’s Best’ [View all]

Conservative televangelist Joel Osteen on Thursday asserted that homosexuality was a sin and not “God’s best” — but at the same time, he said had not chosen to be straight.

During an interview on CNN, host Soledad O’Brien asked Osteen how he could claim to be uplifting LGBT people while also telling them they were sinners.

“It seems like in Christianity, sometimes we categorize sin,” Osteen explained. “I mean pride is a sin, being critical is a sin, being negative is a sin.”

“Those are all things you can change,” O’Brien noted.

“I don’t think it’s God’s best,” the evangelist insited.
