HOUSTON, TX (KPLR) – Six people were charged with criminal trespassing after heckling Joel Osteen during Sunday service at Osteen’s megachurch.

According to a report on KTRK, Osteen had just started to preach when somebody stood up and called him a liar. Witnesses said as each heckler was escorted from the building, another person stood up to interrupt Osteen.

A spokesman for Osteen’s Lakewood Church said the hecklers were affiliated with a rival church.
