Joel Osteen faces criticism on social media for closing Houston megachurch’s doors amid Harvey 

But on Sunday, in response to requests that the church, which can hold more than 16,000, be opened for evacuees, Lakewood Church posted on Facebook that it is “inaccessible due to severe flooding” and subsequently directed displaced residents to nearby Houston shelters.

…The Facebook post courted criticism on social media, where photos appeared to suggest that the massive building, which was once home to the NBA’s Houston Rockets, had not been damaged by the torrential rains afflicting the area.

Dear Middle America,

Stop being so fucking stupid. If your Church’s leader preaches a gospel of money, don’t expect him to open the doors to save you unless there is a monetary profit in it for him. (Duh!)

Sincerely,

The Peanut Gallery
