Joel Osteen, pastor of the Lakewood Church has resigned due to a lack of faith.  At least, that’s what an elaborate prank aimed at Osteen would like you to believe.

After all, it’s a week after April Fools Day and any reports you may have heard about Osteen’s resignation have been 100% false.

Whoever perpetrated the hoax, did a rather convincing job with a fake website. But wait, there’s more.  The prankster also put up fake news sites that spread the lie.  News sites like CNN, Yahoo.com and the Christian News Network.

They also thought of posting a fake You Tube video along with a bogus Twitter page!

According to the Houston Chronicle, “Lakewood officials declined to say whether the church would pursue legal action against the perpetrator of the hoax. But if they did sue on grounds of libel or slander, it could be a difficult legal fight, a Houston attorney said.”
