WATCH: 6 People Arrested at Lakewood Church After Heckling Joel Osteen During Sermon


Six people were escorted out of Lakewood Church in southwest Houston Sunday morning for heckling senior pastor Joel Osteen.

“The moment he started to preach, somebody gets up and they yell “Joel Osteen you’re a liar,” said Anwar Richardson.

Richardson shot video of a security taking one of the hecklers out.  you can hear the congregation clapping as pastor Joel Osteen attempts to move along with his sermon.  but the disruptions continued.

“After the sixth time that it occurred, my son was sleeping in my lap, and I looked at my wife and she was nervous and we just decided we have to get out of here,” said Richardson

They were not alone.

Richardson, who is visiting with his family from Austin says thoughts of the Charleston massacre ran through his mind.

Lakewood Church spokesman Donald Jloff Jr. says the hecklers were all with the church of wells. They were asked to leave, but refused and that’s when they were escorted out.

“He kept on going. He kept his composure. He really the message out, and he said no weapon formed against me shall prosper.  So kudos to him for delivering a good service.”

Police say all six people were charged with criminal trespass.

  1. Hecklers were the same people who demand RESPECT for Obama AND their right to free speech to be as disrespectful as they please.
