Rumors circulated over the weekend that Joel Osteen, senior pastor of Houston’s Lakewood Church, endorsed Donald Trump for president, calling him “a good man.” Part of that is true.

While Osteen did speak favorably about Trump in the Fox News Radio interview referenced in the rumors, the interview occurred in October and Osteen never officially endorsed him. Even if he wanted to, legally, Lakewood Church couldn’t.

“I’m not really up to speed on all the politics,” Osteen said during the interview, “but (Trump)’s been a friend to our ministry.”

Osteen did say that Trump was an ” incredible communicator” which is like saying “she types fast” when someone calls you for a job applicant reference.
