    Oh, agreed. But the OP is more talking about how the situation or decisions are being handled with the public. People are asking legitimate questions and not only are they not getting answered, they're getting blocked by him just for asking.

    It wouldn't be that hard to come out and explain what his ministry is doing, possibly asking people to join in to help, or to explain the reasons for not using the building. It could be damaged, city officials could've requested it not be used, or a list of other legitimate reasons. The downside now is the appearance of avoidance is going to somewhat undercut whatever statement he makes.

Send $1, it's just pocket change but it will make all the difference in the world to the 4th largest city in America. $1 just $1, be part of God's will.
    Nobody? All it will take for Houston to be saved is your donation to me. Feel free to donate more than the $1. No donation is too large. Remember everything in Texas is HUGE!

    You forgot to start your posts with "I'm about to post gibberish" like I requested. That would have saved people in this thread some valuable time trying to figure out you don't post anything of any value

    3 Houston Mosques have opened their doors.... Tweet Osteen about shelter in his megachurch and he blocks you.

    Good for them. There's been some very good stories about the communities there coming together. Another good example.

    He blocks people on Twitter because his church's basement is flooded?

    That just may be the worst social media strategy I've ever heard.

    Somebody just posted pictures and comments saying Osteens' church basements are not flooded so what exactly are you talking about? Apparently the building has undergound parking and they too are free of water. You maybe should not take anything coming from Osteen as truthful if that's were you heard his church's basement is flooded because again there are pictures from today showing the church has been spared any flooding.

    Here is another thread, it seems Osteen was shamed into opening his church to victims after being shamed into it. No basement flooding in that church, told you!!

    JOEL OSTEEN opened his church after closing it to refugees--after being SHAMED
