Another Bakker Bites the Dust

Those of you who remember Jim Bakker may remember that he has a son, Jay, in the ministry. He is currently the subject of a Sundance Channel documentary "One Punk Under God." Unfortunately, he has drifted into serious error, as reported by Lee Grady:

In 2005 he was invited to speak at a conference hosted by Exodus International, a ministry that helps people leave the gay lifestyle. Just before the conference began, Jay was yanked from the schedule because he would not sign a form that said he agreed with Exodus’ theology and conservative values. Not too much later Jay let the world know what he really believes. He told Radar magazine: “This sounds so churchy, but I felt like God spoke to my heart and said [homosexuality] is not a sin.”

...In the TV documentary and other print interviews, Jay has made it clear that he embraces what he calls a “gay-affirming” gospel. He told Mother Jones magazine that he came to the conclusion that homosexuality is an acceptable lifestyle by “looking deeper in the Bible” and by visiting a gay-affirming church.

You know, as tough and rebellious as he is trying to look. He still looks like his dad.
