After getting dragged by everybody and their grandmama for refusing to immediately open the doors to his church during Tropical Storm Harvey, Pastor Joel Osteen has hit the media circuit to defend his actions.
The popular televangelist was criticized for not allowing displaced people in Houston to use his church, which seats 17,000 people, for a shelter. At first, Pastor Osteen offered thoughts and prayers to the residents of Houston.
After becoming a trending topic on social media, Osteen announced his doors would be open to the public.
