Jury Sides With God, Pastor's Wife Cleared

8/14/2008 4:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Megachurch preacher's wife Victoria Osteen did not assault a flight attendant over a stain on her first class seat, a civil jury in Texas has ruled.

The jurors rejected Sharon Brown's claims that pastor Joel Osteen's wife caused her mental and physical harm -- even giving her hemorrhoids-- by going off on her on a 2005 flight from Houston to Vail, Colo.

Brown had said Miss Victoria went berserk when a spill on the armrest of her seat wasn't cleaned up quickly enough. Brown said the preacher's wife slammed her against the lavatory door, and elbowed her in the breast as she rushed the cockpit. A jury unanimously decided Brown's story was full of holy baloney and awarded her zilch.

Brown had sued for 10% of Osteen's net worth.

I am so glad she was cleared. She seems like a very sweet person. Her prayers were answered. Proof that God exsists and is just in all situations.

I think Victoria has realized that she has 2 choices in the matter if it happens again: 1) Wait patiently or 2) Clean it up herself. She will also be a whole lot nicer now because of this. It is easy to get ridiculed when you become a public figure.

You know, I am SO GLAD that the jury saw through this crazy chick's baloney! The way she described what went on, they would have to have taken Mrs. Osteen off the plane if cuffs if any part of that were true. Just ridiculous!!

This has nothing to do with God being "just". If you followed the case, there was enough to indicate Ms. Osteen suffers from a severe case of entitlement. Would Jesus fly first class, or delay other passengers for 2 and 1/2 hours while having a fit over a stain? No.
