Joel Osteen

So White, It's Ungodly!

Someone needs to tan Joel Osteen's hide ... or at least his chest, because the guy who provides holy inspiration to millions is downright pasty.

Joel was vacationing in Hawaii with his fam ... taking in a little paddle boarding.

The 50-year-old pastor -- who prayed with Nik Wallenda before and after he traversed the Grand Canyon on a highwire last month -- looked pretty fit. 

He just needs a little sun to distinguish himself from the Holy Ghost.

Some kayaking lessons wouldn't hurt either, Rev. Just sayin' ...

I want to say a big thank you and
appreciation of the spell caster who
brought back my husband,
my husband left me and
my children for almost six months
within the space of two days after all
instructions given to me by the spell caster
My husband came back to ask how were the children, he said that he loves
me and promises never to let go again, he begged me for forgiveness and
promise never to hurt me.
I am very grateful sir for the restore of peace in my family
home, "I pray that Almighty God gives you
wisdom and strength to help more people
which have a similar problem as mine.
he can solve what ever problem you have.
You can reach him by e-mail:

TMZ:

Apparently my previous comment struck a nerve, because it has been removed. I think I should post it again.

Would it be appropriate to write that a person is "ungodly black?" Would it be appropriate to write that a person is "ungodly gay?"

The double-standard, when it comes to black/white issue, employed on your show is disappointing. Please, start using the same standards for ALL races.

If it is inappropriate to write a headline about a black person, it should also be inappropriate to write it about a white person.

If you doubt that most of your viewers feel the same, why not put up an appropriately worded poll and find out?

Is there now something wrong being WHITE. If he was BLACK would you say he looks BLACK. Very racist TMZ.

Who is writing this junk. And we wonder why this country is so divided. I will preface my comment by saying I"m African American and this is the most ABSURD article! In addition, the headline is misleading as I expected to see ghostly, and this guy is not unusually pale. On top of that he looks to be in great shape probably better than the fat retard that wrote the article. He's a nice looking dude with great head of hair and nice family (hot wife) and seems to have morals. I've watched his show, and I like it b/c he speaks alot about positive energy and universal as well as spiritual principles. See thats our problem b/c we can't respect diversity. Just b/c he's not super tanned doesn't make him any less appealing JUST LIKE just b/c a dark skinned African American is not light or white doesn't make them any less appealing. We don't have to all want to look like eachother-how boring that would be. A rose is different than a lily and a lily different than a tulip and a tulip different than a daisy and so on and yet they all are beautiful in their own respective right. Why can't we as humans understand and respect diversity of nature. Sure, you can have a preference and that's okay. So just b/c someone likes roses doesn't mean roses are better than tulips or that tulips are not pretty. IT JUST MEANS YOU FREAKIN LIKE ROSES! I can like Eva Longoria and still think Kerry Washington is freakin hot and still like Jennifer Lawrence as being beautiful also. Come on you guys start to elevate your level of mental vibration and stop letting the dumb media masturbate your minds! The social structure (govt) just wants to divide us so that they can control us. We should all unite and not divide. There are good people in EVERY race. There are beautiful people in EVERY race. There are also bad people in EVERY race. Please WAKE UP!

Now the word 'WHITE' is so in why shouldn't skin tone as well, thanks to a cable station's "WHITE HISPANIC" term. Does that make our President a "WHITE AFRICAN AMERICAN" ?

He does preach a watered down gospel, but at least it's better than nothing.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with his skin tone. And he's in great shape.

TMZ has nothing against pale skin. They always make fun of Harvey's unnatural looking tan.
