Joel Osteen’s Church Is Being Sued for $10 Million By Worker Accused of Molestation

Joel Osteen may be starting a reality show and making news with interviews with Oprah but he has to deal with the molestation accusations they brought against a former volunteer.

In 2010,  there was a volunteer at Pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church who was accused of sexual molestation of a special needs child. He is now suing the megachurch for $10 million. The suit alleges the church was negligent and he claims the accusations ruined his reputation.

New Reality Show for Joel Osteen with Producer of ‘Survivor’ Mark Burnett
It never fails to surprise us what these larger than life, ‘Hollywood’ spirit-filled, holy cash preachers do these days. It’s not enough that preachers like Osteen have gained everything off the backs of Christians but have to tap into anything secular to gain even more money and support. SMH.
Read report below:
“Survivor” producer Mark Burnett is teaming up with Joel Osteen for a primetime network show in 2012, TMZ has learned.
Burnett tells TMZ, the premise of the show is that ordinary people will give up several days or longer to go on a mission with Joel Osteen, one of the most popular pastors in the world. All of the missions will be in the confines of US soil to “start fixing things.”
Over the years, “just about every studio in Hollywood” has pitched show ideas to the Osteens, but they’ve always turned them down, until now, said Don Iloff, Lakewood spokesman.
The Osteens have been friends with Burnett and his wife Roma Downey, who are Christians and have visited Lakewood in the past, and they trust Burnett’s vision and expertise in the reality TV medium.

Before his arrest, Investor, Sgt. Ron Baggett could hear him preaching for one hour about forgiveness.
