Osteen: Backlash over not opening megachurch for shelter ‘probably helped us to step up some things’

Lakewood Church, which has the capacity to seat more than 16,000 parishioners, began accepting displaced residents Tuesday morning, following several days of public criticism as evacuees began filling up other local shelters by the thousands.
