Was That Fake? - Joel Osteen as U.S. House chaplain

- Was That Fake?

Did U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan really nominate Houston-based Lakewood Church Pastor Joel Osteen for House chaplain? Rumors were swirling, but it appears this all came from a satirical post on a political message board. FOX 26 News contacted the church earlier on Wednesday regarding the final day for Pastor John Gray and there was no mention of any nomination of that kind for Pastor Osteen. No sources have confirmed the nomination.

Was That Fake?

Are the Boy Scouts of America removing "boy" from the organization's name? It announced in 2017 that girls would be allowed to join for the first time ever. Yes, "boy" will be omitted from the name when the flagship program will be known as Scouts BSA in February 2019. The organization said it wanted a name that was inclusive yet still recalls its past, hence leaving the organizations initials.
