Dear Mr. Joel Osteen,
I would like to apologize to you for thinking bad thoughts about you. I generalized you with other television evangelists. After watching an interview that you gave Oprah, I realize I have judged your harshly. (Disclaimer: I am not a fan of Oprah but I do think she is a good interviewer and I have enjoyed getting caught up on her new show where she interviews famous people.)
Oprah asked you some point blank questions and you came back with good biblical answers when I thought you might try to skirt around and make pleasant answers.
I am by no means going to go out and buy a Joel Osteen t-shirt but I feel that you have gotten a bad wrap from me. I have set my DVR to tape some of your programs because I would like to research you a little more.
Once again, I apologize for not learning about you and learning what you are about.
