WATCH: Houston megachurch pastor Joel O’Steen equates gays to drunks, drug addicts

We honestly thought Barbara Walters was going to ask Joel O’Steen whether he’s homosexual when she brought up the issue of an evangelical pastor in Georgia who recently came out (Jim Swilley) on Tuesday’s The View. She didn’t. But if O’Steen were gay, he says he would probably have to step down from Lakewood Church, even though he could still be a member: “We don’t have a sign at the door: ‘No gays, no drunkards, no people on drugs.’ We’re for everybody.” Well that’s great, pastor, because so is this!
