Texas megachurch pastor Joel Osteen was among more than 60,000 people who marched in a Houston Black Lives Matter protest against the police killing of George Floyd.

The Lakewood Church pastor joined Floyd’s family in the march on June 2, according ABC13.com.

“Despite Joel Osteen’s commendable action of marching with Floyd’s family, he hasn’t articulated positions on anti-Black racism, police brutality, and racial justice,” Faithfully Magazine Managing Editor Nicola A. Menzie observed on Twitter.

“Osteen pretty much [boils] it down to ‘loving each other’ with no mention of need for systemic changes or police accountability,” she added, describing a video interview in which the pastor expresses solidarity with his “Black brothers and sisters.”

In addition to leading a church that draws tens of thousands of attendees weekly, Osteen is the bestselling author of such books as Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential and The Power of I Am: Two Words That Will Change Your Life Today.
