Texas pastor Joel Osteen responds to backlash over not opening his megachurch to Harvey victims

Texas televangelist Joel Osteen spoke out on Monday after receiving a bevy of online criticism over not opening the massive Lakewood Church to flood victims for days.

Osteen told ABC News on Monday the Houston megachurch “will continue to be a distribution center for those in need” and had been “prepared to house people once shelters reach capacity.”

The Houston megachurch announced late Tuesday morning it had begun receiving people displaced by Tropical Storm Harvey.
