Rev. Robert H. Schuller has been ousted from the Crystal Cathedral Ministries he founded, the Orange County Register reported.

The 84-year-old Schuller founded more than 50 years ago the Orange County, California-based Protestant megachurch that is now being led by his daughters Sheila Schuller Coleman and Carol Schuller Milner.

According to the paper, Schuller was voted off the board of the Crystal Cathedral Ministries. He joins his son, Robert A. Schuller, who was booted three years ago.

“A majority of that board consists of paid employees of the church and that's a serious conflict of interest,” Robert A. Schuller told the paper, adding that his father wanted to enlarge the board.

“It's a very sad day and unfortunately, I know how that feels,” he added.

Schuller had spoken out against policies implemented by his daughters, including the church's official stance against gay parishioners, which went so far as asking the church's choir to sign an anti-gay covenant.

“I understand that Crystal Cathedral Ministries teaches that sexual intimacy is intended by God to only be within the bonds of marriage, between one man and one woman,” the covenant reads.

Coleman told reporters that the document is intended to “clarify expectations placed on them as ministry leaders.”

Schuller disagreed with the policy.

“I have a reputation worldwide of being tolerant of all people and their views,” Schuller said in March. “I'm too well-educated to criticize a certain religion or group of people for what they believe in. It's called freedom.”

He added that everyone is welcome in his church: “We don't test anyone who comes to our ministry. We don't require them to be Christian. We would not demand that they be born-again Christians.”

Last year the board of the Crystal Cathedral filed for bankruptcy protection, citing debts of more than $43 million.
