Update on the Osteen situation. They lied even worse than we thought.

I’ve added the following update to the post on Joel Osteen and his wife visiting a public elementary school today.


From one of the people keeping tabs on the goings on at Amidon-Bowen.

I was lied to by the Vice principal.

He told me to my face when I asked, “What will be read?” that “The Lorax” would be the book.  Not so.  50ish K, 1st and 2nd graders were read Victoria Osteen’s book Gifts from the Heart.  No Lorax at all.  The school handed out “Gifts from the Heart” to the kids.

A few declined.  There were many adults- presumably Osteen entourage. Possibly a couple parents.

Joel Osteen smiled and said “Hi how are you” to the kids and patted a few heads.  It was his wife’s show.

One of the students in attendance at the reading explained of Mrs. Osteen that, ‘She didn’t read no Dr. Suess. She read this book!’ and held up a copy of “Gifts From the Heart.”

I have asked everybody on the ground to start collecting evidence.  Pics of kids with the book, recordings of them talking about it, etc.  Kind of ironic we immoral atheists must exert so much effort to prevent breaking the law in the presence of children by people claiming to have the moral high ground.  Thou shalt not lie, right?

We gave them fair warning.
