Bible Scholar calls out Piers Morgan over Olsteen interview

I watched the January interview but missed the most recent version – Joel Osteen is exactly the opposite of what I think of when I think of the word Christian. He preaches Rock Star Christianity and he’s made a fortune out of it. In the video below, Osteen calls homosexuality a sin. Piers Morgan interview was a promotional puff piece. He challenged nothing.

Bible Scholar Dr. Joel M. Hoffman published an open letter challenging Morgan. He called Morgan’s effort, “promoting bigotry and helping to perpetuate a fraud”.

Hoffman writes:

It’s both an important point and an easy one to settle. You could have asked Pastor Osteen for the chapter and verse that he thinks calls homosexuality a sin. What you would have found is that he couldn’t provide it, because Pastor Osteen was expressing his personal opinion, not quoting the Bible. The Bible doesn’t say that homosexuality is a sin.

Seriously folks… the truth is the truth and mediocrity helps spread hatred and bigotry. Do your job Piers Morgan. Ask the hard questions. Be a real reported.
