Maybe there is a little justice after all. The Osteens came out clean in the recent ridiculous trial and false accusation about an assault of an airline attendant. The charges were absurd and the jury recognized it. The jury ruled in favor of the Osteen’s and agreed that no assault ever occurred. The attendant was making up a story to bring down some celebrities and cash in on the deal. It’s hard to believe an attorney would accept such a case. All the witnesses around the so-called incident claimed that no assault occurred. The whole affair was a colossal waste of time and money and was as much the fault of the trial attorney as the deranged plaintiff.
It’s still a few months before Christmas, but a Christmas Greeting by Mark Twain is appropriate for this fiasco. I have modified the last sentence a bit. Mark Twain felt the same about the inventor of the telephone as I do about trial lawyers.
“It is my heart-warm and world-embracing Christmas hope and aspiration that all of us, the high, the low, the rich, the poor, the admired, the despised, the loved, the hated, the civilized, the savage (every man and brother of us all throughout the whole earth), may eventually be gathered together in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace and bliss, except for trial attorneys. ”
I now hope that Joel Osteen can get back to preaching and smiling. I do wish he could tone down his life style a bit because it doesn’t set a good example for all us poor Christians. I can’t imagine Jesus flying first class to Vail, Colorado. Jesus wasn’t into skiing and the like. I don’t think he even watched the Super Bowl. Osteen’s high life style also makes him a setup for nuts who want to cash in on his good thing. People love to persecute Christians. The first one was even crucified.
