Unsolicited messages on social media asking for money are suspicious at best, and one Texas woman who was contacted on Facebook by a person claiming to be "Pastor Joel Osteen" learned firsthand that scammers are a dime a dozen.
Paula Dupre said she received a Facebook message Sunday night from a Pastor Joel Osteen who had a few questions for her, local news station ABC13 reports.
The individual on the other end of their dialogue asked if Dupre was a "true Christian," and did she "believe in the Christ Jesus," Dupre said. "I wrote back, 'yes.'" more >>

A district court judge in Texas has temporarily blocked President Obama's controversial transgender bathroom directive for public schools mandating that they allow boys who identify as female to go into girls' bathrooms and locker rooms.

Pastor Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, has said that while Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is doing a "great job" of attracting evangelical voters, he must hammer on the importance of appointing conservative justices to the Supreme Court.
"The good news for Trump is that according to the latest Pew poll, evangelicals prefer Trump by three-to-one over Hillary Clinton," Jeffress said in an interview with Fox News on Sunday, referring to Pew statistics from July detailing evangelical support for Trump.
"So the danger is not that evangelicals are going to vote for Clinton, the danger is that they won't turn out and vote at all, like they did in 2012 by the millions," he said. more >>
