Oprah Winfrey's Lifeclass program, where viewers "get the lessons we can all use to lead our best possible lives," just taped an episode featuring the wisdom of two antigay pastors.
The episode starred Joel Osteen and Rick Warren and was shot Friday in Houston. While it's not clear what the specifics of the episode focus on, one thing is certain: Osteen and Warren hold seriously homophobic views.
Osteen, a megachurch pastor in Houston, claims he doesn't hate gays, only views them as sinful. California pastor and author Warren is proudly against marriage equality. He also campaigned for Proposition 8 and declared support for Chick-fil-A and its antigay policies.
The Lifeclass episode airs October 28 at 8 p.m. on OWN.
