Joel Osteen Says God Approves of LGBT People (Video)

Joel Osteen, a mega-church pastor, televangelist, and social media extraordinaire appeared on Huffington Post Live with Josh Zepps to discuss his new book called Break Out: 5 Keys to Go Beyond Your Barriers and Live an Extraordinary Life.

Zepps read a passage he liked from Osteen’s book: “It doesn’t matter who likes you or doesn’t like you, all that matters is that God likes you. He accepts you, he approves of you.”

Zepps followed up by asking Osteen if that included homosexuals:

Absolutely, I believe that God breathed life into every person and that every person is made in the image of God and you have accept them as they are, on their journey. I’m not here to preach hate or push people down.
