Joel Osteen Should Resign

This petition had 105 supporters

I believe Joel Osteen should resign as senior pastor of Lakewood Church, or Lakewood Church should move out of Houston. Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey devastated the city of Houston.  While Mr. Osteen and his family were safe in his 10.5 million dollar home (pictured above), citizens were on the flooded streets of downtown Houston fighting for their lives without anywhere to go.   Meanwhile Mr. Osteen's megachurch remained with closed and empty.

 Lakewood Church is an arena, the former Compaq Center, that seats nearly 17,000 people. A Spokesman for the Church Tweeted Sunday that the church is inaccessible due to severe flooding. And posted pictures of inside the arena that showed no flooding. They lied about their Church flooding, that was one of the first renovations when he acquired the Compaq Center because it flooded in 2001. A Spokesman for the Church told callers they would have to swim to get here yet Pictures posted on social media of their parking lot showed no flooding. 

A Spokesman for Lakewood Church is quoted as saying "it makes no sense to open church doors while the city and the county are already treating thousands of flood victims at nearby George R Brown Convention Center". Two of Mr. Osteen' s staffers had to be rescued as well.  If he didn't care about his own staff he didn't care about the city of Houston.  His doors are now open. He has taken in 'hundreds' of refugees.  His weekly attendance is over 50 thousand.  His church has 17,000 seats. He has only taken in hundreds.  I think that it's too little to late.  

Joel Osteen does not care about you.  Joel Osteen cares about the himself, his family and his 10 million dollar home. So Stand with me and sign this petition to get corrupt and carnal religious leaders out of the great City of Houston.
