    Mega Celebrity Pastor Joel Osteen Gets Called Out On Twitter Re: Harvey

    Twitter seems all aflutter regarding Houston's own, mega celebrity Christian pastor Joel Osteen offering what many see as the bare minimum in help for his home city during the natural disaster of Hurricane Harvey.

    READ: Joel Osteen?s Tweets About Hurricane, Twitter?s*Response

    People who know of Osteen know that he and his wife, Victoria, are very wealthy. According to Raw Story, the couple live in a $10.5 million mansion in Texas. However, Osteen has not made any public comments about allowing flood victims to enter his church (the extent of damage there is unclear) nor has he said anything about donating money to help relief efforts.

    Instead, Osteen has posted a few tweets about praying for the people in Texas. He has also tweeted out a few messages about how God is in control and how God will help people get through tough times (likely referring to the hurricane).
    Thanks from Friday13

    This tweet, from his church's account, probably wasn't well thought out. At a time when thousands of real people are seeking actual refuge, and you have a large building at your disposal that you (maybe even justifiably so) aren't making available, probably isn't the time to offer up a spiritual refuge.

    Meh. I've never really considered Joel Osteen a pastor. He's more of a motivational speaker.
