"I lost my church when I came out of the closet ten years ago. But I would flip the channel and the ONLY THING I could watch was Joel Osteen. I found a church, Methodist, that accepted gay people and I am a member now. I still liked listening to Joel because he inspired me. Then, I read an interview by Joel in which he stated that gayness was a sin. My heart completely fell and I feel sorrow as I write this. The other night I flipped the channel and I saw Joel. But I passed because I can't let Joel Osteen judge me when God has said that He loves me the way I am. Why can't Christians just LOVE everyone? Why do they have to condemn children of God? I am deeply sad about Joel's judgement against gay people. It is a sad day for gays."
This is the response I received when I wrote to the JO ministry:

So what does that mean? Do they have filters that deny "negative" feedback from readers? I failed to use the correct christian lingo? I got bumped because I didn't have relevent material? It may be a techo glitch. But I have been bumped by Christian organizations before,so, I wouldn't be surprised if they filter out the not-so-in-your-face glowing narratives. Reader, you contact Joel.
