HOUSTON, TX – First Pope Benedict resigned and now Joel Osteen?! That was the rumor flying around the internet.
A message was posted to the website joelostenministries.com, saying the pastor had lost his faith and would be retiring. A YouTube video and Twitter account were also made. But as it turns out, they were all fake.
The pastor says the rumors are outlandish and false. He hasn’t lost his faith and he’s not resigning.
The church is looking into fake website and social media accounts.
