Joel Osteen's Wife Asked to Leave Airplane Flight

I won't post my personal comments upfront on this story. I just wanted to pass it on for your amusement.

By PAM EASTON, Associated Press Writer
1 hour, 1 minute ago



HOUSTON - The wife of the pastor of the nation's largest church was asked to leave a plane after she failed to comply with a flight attendant's instructions, the FBI said Tuesday.

Houston Lakewood Church pastor Joel Osteen, his wife, Victoria, and their two children boarded a Continental Airlines flight from Houston to Vail, Colo., Monday. The plane's door had been closed when Victoria Osteen and a flight attendant had a disagreement.

"She failed to comply with the flight attendant's instructions, and they were asked to leave the flight," FBI spokeswoman Luz Garcia said without elaborating on the disagreement.

The FBI reviewed a report from Continental after the incident, Garcia said. No charges will be filed, she said.

The flight was delayed more than an hour while the Osteens' luggage was retrieved, Garcia said. The family took another flight to Colorado, where church spokesman Don Iloff said they were skiing Tuesday.

Iloff called the disagreement with the flight attendant "minor" but would not say what happened.

"In semantics, they might have been asked to be removed," he said. "Really, it was more of a mutual thing."

Continental spokeswoman Julie King would not discuss the disagreement but said in a statement that the situation was resolved.

Osteen's sermons are broadcast across the country and his book "Your Best Life Now" has become a best seller. His church has more than 30,000 worshippers weekly and meets in a renovated arena where the Houston Rockets once played.

Doesn't really seem like news. Without the content of the argument, it's just the fact that she's this preacher's wife that it even made print.

A similar thing happened with Robert Schuller from the Crystal Cathedral out in California? 1997 I think and he had to pay a fine and was sued by a flight attendant for assault.

Are we supposed to find this funny? Or newsworthy? Or some kind of discussion point?

Or just an attempt to point fun at someone you don't like?

Well people are human and they make mistakes, have bad days, etc. So if the implication is that she had no business doing that or whatever because she's a famous pastor's wife, I don't agree with that. People cause problems on planes every day, anonymous people who don't make the news. I doubt that she holds herself out as being perfect.

I don't really see the point of the story, either. This guy's wife isn't exactly a public figure. I'm not even sure Joel Osteen himself is that much of a public figure outside of his own town, or maybe in the state of Texas. I'd never even heard of him until now.

I could see it being a news story if it was about Pat Robertson or someone like that.

Because they do not fit an acceptable brand of Christianity.

Just my guess.
