Joel Osteen Finally Opens His Megachurch To Hurricane Harvey Refugees After Being Shamed On Twitter

no title

Everyone is lending a helping hand during Hurricane Harvey — even if they have to be shamed into it.

When people noticed gazillionaire televangelist Joel Osteen hadn't opened the doors to his Lakewood megachurch, there was an understandable outrage online.

The Houston pastor had said the church was inaccessible due to severe flooding, a claim that seemed to be contradicted by the numerous photos people were taking from the outside, not to mention the official maps of safe roads in the area.

Joel Osteen Gets DRAGGED On Twitter For Not Opening Megachurch To Hurricane Harvey Refugees!

UPDATE 7:55 P.M. EST: According to TMZ, church officials are now blaming the closure on flooding, saying Lakewood is "inaccessible." Needless to say, bullshit is being called on that excuse as eyewitnesses and now-viral photos report no apparent flooding around the facility (as seen in the tweets below).


In case you're not familiar with Joel Osteen, he's a very, VERY wealthy pastor based in Houston, Texas.

His empire of best-selling books, a Sirius XM radio show, and televised sermons have given him an estimated net worth north of $50 million.

When southeast Texas was hit by unprecedented flooding from Hurricane Harvey, Osteen tweeted:


And that's all he did.

People were quick to note on Twitter that he has not donated any money (that anyone can tell anyway), but more importantly he didn't open the doors of his 16,800-seating megachurch in Lakewood to refugees, despite it being spared from flooding and easily accessible.

Well this is just super!

If you were looking forward to Super Bowl LI but didn't think Lady GaGa was quite the right pick for the job… then have we got some game-changing news for you.
