‘An evangelist preacher in Houston is being targeted through a social media campaign after being accused of lying about his church being inaccessible.
Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church sparked anger when it wrote on Facebook: “Dear Houstonians! Lakewood Church is inaccessible due to severe flooding! We want to help make sure you are safe. Please see the list below for safe shelters around our city, and please share this with those in need!”
The post appeared to suggest the church was closing its doors to those in need of help. The ‘church’ is housed in an arena with 16,800-seat capacity in downtown Houston. It was formerly used by the NBA basketball team, Houston Rockets.’
