The Huffington Post did an interview with Victoria Osteen, wife and partner-in-fraud of megapreacher Joel Osteen, who sells feel-good bullshit along with religious bullshit, and she explained how she prays to God to find a parking space. Because apparently that’s way more important than, like, keeping a kid from getting brain cancer or something.
Does praying for a material goal “dumb down” the idea of prayer?
Victoria Osteen, the co-pastor of the Lakewood megachurch with her husband Joel Osteen, spoke to HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill about the spiritual benefits of fasting and addressed the kind of prayer that she does in her daily life.
“Even if I’m going to drop my kids off, or I need to park somewhere, I’m like, ‘OK God, you know I’m in this parking lot, you know any place you can open up for me would be great!'” she said. “I just have this relationship- I’m not dumbing down prayer. What I’m doing- it’s just part of my life.”
