Joel Osteen's large security detail freaks out at an attempt to film him in the open-air plaza space of The Grove in Los Angeles. The security team encircles Joel to prevent him from being filmed. What a Prima Dona. Nothing represents Jesus better than being unapproachable.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    a security detail.  Apparently Osteen knows of a version of the Bible that I haven't yet encountered...

  •  I get it, but I don't like your approach. (0+ / 0-)

    So, to get access for your "YouTube moments," you go to a book signing, buy the book, stand in line, try to get your interview and then return the book so you don't "waste any money"?  As a supporter of independent bookstores, I can't say that I approve of your technique.

    While we're at it...

    I understand that the establishment of third parties is a big issue for you--and I happen to agree with you on that subject, for the most part--but why would you want to interview a preacher/pastor who, as you note, hasn't spoken on the matter at all?

    We spend a great deal of our time here talking about how churches and denominational organizations need to stay the heck out of the political process. Osteen tries to stay out of political issues (you might remember that he responded to questions about Romney/Obama by saying that Obama 'loves the Lord' and that Romney's Mormon faith was 'good enough for him' - that sure sounds like a pastor trying to stay out of political partisanship.)  There are issues on which one might consider Osteen controversial, but partisan politics isn't one of them, as far as I know. Now, however, you're trying to get political statements from him? Why?

    At first glance, this instance seems more like 'celebrity hunting' than it does political advocacy - but I'd like to hear the reasoning behind this "choice of target."

    The word "parent" is supposed to be a VERB, people...

      1) Why not just do the advocacy that you do the way you prefer instead instead?

      2) He's often asked about political issues such as marriage equality

      3) Getting him on the record on the topic could have drawn attention to this topic

      4) I'm not paying no $30.00 for his book - period. Most of the book signings around here are at Barnes & Noble, not indie book stores
