Major robbery at Joel Osteen's Texas church

Police in Houston said someone stole more than a half-million dollars from Joel Osteen's church. The story is popular online today.

It is believed that the burglary took place between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning.

Police aren't sure if the act was caught on security video or who may have had access to the vault.

The non-denominational Lakewood church released a statement saying its leadership is sad about the theft.

More than 40,000 people attend each Sunday.

It may not sound negative but according to a new campaign, it is.

Celebrities like Beyonce, Jennifer Garner, and Jane Lynch are among the celebrities joining Girl Scouts of America in the "Ban Bossy" campaign.

It urges people to ban the term "bossy" in association with powerful women.

The campaign's website,, is filled with stories and quotes from prominent women who talk about being a boss and a leader.

These women fear young girls are twice as likely as boys to worry that leadership roles will make them seem 'bossy'.
