This afternoon I was contacted by Andrea from Lakewood Church. The Houston Megachurch that Olsteen leads. When I asked her about the cost of the ticket. She explained that it covered the cost of paying
for the Scottrade Center employees and various things such as that. I tried to express my view that if this is a message that is good for everyone to hear that provision should be made for making the event
free. Andrea explained that they used to have free attendance at these events but when they had an event at Madison Square Garden the facility required that an admission be charged for safety reasons.
