I do not comment much on these boards…mainly because I think just as Glenn said last night there is about 1% of the population who sits around waiting to comment on these articles and most of it is hate and vitriol. You people speak of how you loved Glenn when he had his chalk board and was telling us of all the bad things happening, during that time he kept saying the solution was God. He continually had David Barton, Alveda King, and Rabbi Lipkin on to reinforce that. Yet now, when he tells you to listen to the other side and find common things that we agree with, you turn on him like the Jews turned on Christ. Shows me that he must have hit on something, a truth that many do not want to acknowledge. I am not a young person but I’m not an old person either, but I remember a time in our Country when disagreeing with someone on one point didn’t make them your mortal enemy. What has happened to us? I agree with 99.9% of what you say, but you said this and now you are my enemy? I see Glenn speaking the truth, and telling it the way he sees it. I support him, for I know that loving others is one of the hardest things there is to do. I’m trying and it is not easy. If you read and believe in the Bible though all you have to do is read Luke 10:27: “And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” Do that and all the other Commandments fall in line.
Agreed. We need to listen to both sides. Our side isn't always right and the other side isn't always wrong. Anyone who thinks different from us MUST be bad, horrible, ugh! It's funny though. You read liberal and conservative blogs long enough, you find MANY things we can both agree on. Both sides want a peaceful country to raise their families. It's only the extremes of both sides who spread vitriol and hatred. Unfortunately, their voices are the loudest.
We can listen to each other, we can love our enemies, but we cannot compromise truth. That is the bottom line. Glenn's lack of boundaries on his "feelings" has driven a dividing wedge through the conservatives again. Division is never of God. I will point out that Christ displayed righteous anger at the money changers and drove them from the temple.
Yeah you got us Van…climate changes…every single year Summer fades and fall comes…Hurricanes form…and guess what, come November and December it will change again and snow will fall, don’t get excited, it’s not the coming of an Ice Age, nope come April and May…the flowers will bloom again and the leaves will return to the trees…oh and it will probably rain. Geez what moonbats.

How could you go from supporting the Libertarian in the race to supporting the Communist in the Race? Talk about being clueless.

That has to be one the most ignorant statements I’ve ever heard…we should bring tar and feathering back and run this guy out on a rail.

So if I grew up thinking I was Napoleon, would that mean I’m Napoleon?

The saddest part of this story is in a few years this will probably be legal to do.

Ok Joel, so let’s be hypothetical here, if the Left wanted all the Jews killed, and the Right wanted all the Muslims killed. what would be your position? Kill half the Jews and Half the Muslims? Geez, Joel do you really have any faith at all? This guy is a joke all he cares about is money.
This guy is a real idiot! He doesn't know the Bible other than what it takes to draw in the money. That is all he is about. If Obama is a christian I'm a donkey. He is sticking his head in the sand not wanting to insult the ingellegence of anyone on either side of the fence scared of loosing the money they send in. He is not even luke wanm............. God have mercy on his soul.
Sorry, man. But that is a terrible comparison. Remember when they attempted to draw Jesus into politics with the question about paying taxes... His answer was simple. He took a coin and asked the questioner whose face was on the coin.... When the guy answered, "Caesar's", Jesus just said, "Render to Caesar that which is Caesar's and to God what is God's".. He didn't rail on what a bad guy Caesar was or his policies... Which by the way, were a LOT more totalitarian than anything we're dealing with.... The worst he ever said about a government official was when he called Herod,(who, by the way, beheaded Jesus' cousin) a "fox". No where in the New Testament does it tell us to condemn our governors or rulers. Instead, we're told to pray for them. Given his calling as a minister to reach and redeem as many people as possible, Joel is actually right on the mark.
Well, you are correct. Joel does draw in the money. Like a retail business, why would he torque off half his potential customer base by being judgemental about their politics? I'm sure his lack of judgement is purely a marketing decision on his part.
Of course, it wouldn't do to be judgemental about someone's actions and beliefs. That would be.....wrong on a number of counts.
I do not view Osteen as a religious leader. Leader's make decisions, and draw lines in the sand re. what is acceptable and unacceptable behavior. Joel falls short.
The Rabbi Yeshua DIED fighting political corruptions!! and this guy Osteen is one of his followers???
Microace. you are on the money. this guy is a fake and is all about the revenue.
RW Burton..The worst Jesus ever called man was a Fox? Better look again..He called the Pharisees vipers and snakes..and he entered the temple and overturned the tables telling them that they had turned his Father's house into a den of theives..this is John McArthur..noted theologian..rebuking Joel Olsteen.
Unbelievable. You people want to bash him simply because he doesn't endorse a candidate. Your so much more idiotic than he is, and you don't even realize it. I am so sick of coming onto this site and seeing comments from supposed conservatives speaking like this. No wonder you don't like the guy, he suggests that you actually be civil. God forbid Christian folks or conservative folks could learn a little something about being civil.
Bravjim....The problem is everyone knows he wants to Support Obama but doesnt have the balls to say it.

I don’t know why they don’t just go ahead and change their name to the Democratic National Communists and get it over with.
