Megachurch TEAvangelical pastor Joel Osteen decided to tweet something inspirational. Sometimes it is hard to impart knowledge on one’s followers, and sometimes things don’t come out as expected. This was one of those times. In what probably seemed like a stroke of genius at the time, the Lakewood pastor Tweeted:
“A true friend walks in when everybody else walks out. A true friend doesn’t rub it in when you make a mistake. They rub it out.”
Osteen, realizing that he made a masturbation reference, rubbed the tweet out of his news feed, as well erasing from existence the one time he actually said something inspirational. One has to wonder where he can find some of these “true friends” Osteen referenced.
This Tweet does raise an interesting philosophical questions is it appropriate for a friend of the same sex to help you “rub it out?”
We’re awaiting Mr. Osteen’s response to that question.
