Larry King asked Joel Osteen, "What are your views on homosexuality?”It is one of those questions most popular pastors pray to avoid on live television. Composed and calm Osteen replied “The same that they’ve been. I believe that the scripture says that it’s a sin but I always follow that up by saying you know what, we’re not against anybody.”
Sure the bible says it's a sin, but Jesus also said do not judge anyone by their sins unless you be judged. But, shouldn't he preach about it?
Larry King licked his wounds like a tiger pouncing on its prey, he pressed him to explain, "How can it be if we don't know what causes it? You don't know why you're a heterosexual."
"There's a lot of things Larry that I don't understand- so I just don't want to preach on it, preach about it," Osteen said.
King enquired, "Does gay marriage annoy you?" Osteen said, “It doesn’t annoy me. From a scripture point of view, it’s not what my faith would teach, but it doesn’t annoy me."
