News Freaking Flash: Joel Osteen Thinks That Something Is A Sin!

Known for his focus on uplifting Christian messages and ability to stay away from controversial social and political issues (Read Newsweek's "No Politics From This Pulpit"), Texas megapastor Joel Osteen has found himself in the headlines this week for telling CNN's Piers Morgan that homosexuality is a sin.

Of course, the weird part in all this has nothing to do with homosexuality and everything to do with Osteen actually even using the word "sin" at all. Given that the entirety of his programming is dedicated to the "best life now" rather than eternity, this is pretty shocking. He didn't really bother to mention anything about salvation, but at least we now know that he thinks that there are worse things one can do than "have a bad attitude."
