Osteen: Gays Aren't God's Best


View cohost Whoopi Goldberg asked megachuch pastor Joel Osteen whether gay people are welcome at his Lakewood Church in Houston. Osteen said he welcomes people of different religions and sexual orientations, but that "homosexuality is not God's best."

Osteen added that he loves everyone, that some of his closest friends are gay, and that they tend to be "some of the nicest people in the world."

Joy Behar, who also has her own show on CNN Headline News, asked Osteen whether he thinks homosexuality is a choice. "It's not something you pick to be, because it's very difficult to be gay in this society," she said.

"I know it isn't, but I try to love them and treat them with respect," Osteen said.
