Pastor Joel Osteen to Oprah: Homosexuality Is Sin — But Gay People Will Get Into Heaven
Wow! The amount of horse manure these evangelical Christians consume on a daily basis is enough to fertilize all the corn fields in Kansas! They talk about God as if they play poker together Friday nights, play golf on Saturdays and watch football games together on Sunday. In fact, they claim to know not just God, but God’s thoughts!
The stupidity of it all is that they “know” God so well because of what’s written in that silly fictional book called the Bible. You know, the Bible, that book with the talking animals, yeah that one! Funny thing is, the Bible also says we should stone people to death for such things as blasphemy, disobeying parents or breaking the Sabbath:
And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him. Leviticus 24:16
If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother … Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city … And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die. Deuteronomy 21:18-21
They found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day. … And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones…. And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses. Numbers 15:32-56
So, why don’t we stone people to death in this Christian country?
The Bible also says that people should keep slaves:
Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids. Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession. And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever. Leviticus 25:44-46
Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ. Ephesians 6:5
So, why do we no longer keep slaves in this Christian country?
The Bible also says that women should not speak in churches:
Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church. 1 Corinthians 14:34-36
So, why do we allow women to speak in churches in this Christian country?
The Bible says we should kill homosexuals:
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Leviticus 20:13
So, why don’t we kill homosexuals in this Christian country?
I could go on and on, but I believe I’ve proved my point. Because of the fact that the Bible is a book written by ignorant barbarians, Christian morons in the year 2012 are forced to choose the parts of the Bible that fit our civilized society and ignore all others. It seems they too are going to hell for disobeying the Word of God. TGO

Despite his wild popularity, he‘s also frequently criticized by some who feel he doesn’t address some of the more nitty-gritty issues that exist in both the secular and religious worlds.
When it comes to sin — something Osteen clearly believes in but rarely discusses in his sermons — the faith leader is often targeted for not addressing the issue upfront and regularly. On Sunday evening, Oprah Winfrey interviewed Osteen on her new program, “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” where he delved deeply into his views on homosexuality and sin.
“Will a gay person be accepted into heaven, as you see it?,” Oprah asked the famed pastor. “I believe they will,” he responded. ”Sometimes we look at gay being a bigger sin than being proud or not telling the truth. I don’t think God categorizes sins.”
Here, Osteen made it clear that he believes homosexuality is sinful. But Oprah pushed him a bit harder to solidify his stance, asking, “Does that mean that you’re saying that you believe that being gay is a sin?”
“I believe that homosexuality is shown as a sin in the scripture,” he responded. “Oprah, it’s a hard thing in a sense, because I’m for everybody. I’m not against anybody. I don‘t think anybody’s second class,” Osteen continued, as he explained that the bible’s message on the matter, in his view, is clear.
Osteen’s main point in addressing the issue, though, was that homosexuality, should it be considered a sin, isn’t any different from other offenses. In his view, it shouldn’t be raised above the other sins that individuals commit.
Osteen made similar statements to CNN’s Piers Morgan back in October, though he also made headlines for saying that he would, out of respect, attend a gay wedding in support of a close friend or family member. Also, we recently reported that Osteen, who brings in millions of viewers through his weekly sermons, will be working on a primetime television show this year.
