Joel Osteen Talks To Oprah – ‘Homosexuality Is A Sin, But Gay People Can Go To Heaven’

Joel Osteen has made quite a name for himself as a pastor of a mega church and uplifting positive speaker. This has opened him up to critics that say he doesn’t address the really tough issues that exist in society today.

In an interview with Oprah he went into detail on his views about homosexuality and sin. While he keeps his sermons focused on positivity and uplifting messages, sin is obviously something that he does believe in.

“Will a gay person be accepted into heaven, as you see it?,” Oprah asked the famed pastor. “I believe they will,” he responded. ”Sometimes we look at gay being a bigger sin than being proud or not telling the truth. I don’t think God categorizes sins.”

During the interview, Osteen made it clear that he believes homosexuality to be sinful. Oprah took things a little further pushing the subject asking “Does that mean that you’re saying that you believe that being gay is a sin?”

“I believe that homosexuality is shown as a sin in the scripture,” he responded. “Oprah, it’s a hard thing in a sense, because I’m for everybody. I’m not against anybody. I don‘t think anybody’s second class.” He went into further detail in the interview.
