    Jim, Tammy Faye Bakker's Son Has Punk Ministry

    Jay Bakker Preaches In Bars
    NEW YORK -- He's tattooed, multi-pierced and preaching God's grace to people who otherwise might be turned away from the church.
    Jay Bakker, who rebelled after the fall of his televangelist parents, is a minister in the new reality series "One Punk Under God: the Prodigal Son of Jim and Tammy Faye."


    The show, which airs Wednesday evenings on the Sundance Channel, is about the church he calls Revolution, which, notwithstanding his decade-long sobriety, holds services in an Atlanta bar.


    Jay Bakker spent his teens self-destructing on alcohol and drugs after his parents' "Praise the Lord" empire collapsed in scandal and his father went to jail for fraud.


    But now, Bakker preaches God's grace to a flock of fellow punks.

    I give him credit for staying off the drugs and booze, for sure.

    I say good for him. He's probably going to get a strong following, because many kids and younger people today tend to be put off by some of the "tsk-tskers" and hoity-toityness of some typical churches, where a strict dress code is mandated etc. It's important for people to feel like they "belong" and I think he's certainly carving a niche where one needs to be carved. I say if he is doing good things in his life, and is encouraging others to also do good things in their lives, then he's very much on the right track.

    My first thought upon reading this thread was, "Well, that makes sense, his parents had a punk ministry for years."

    Gee, I'll bet Tammy Faye is real proud, NOT! Personally, if they were my parents, I think I would've committed suicide!

    Geeze, That is kind of harsh. I dont agree with everything my parents do but I would NEVER kill myself. I am sure Tammy is proud, he turned out well.

    The AP described her condition as "gravely ill" which usually means close to death.

    I am not a fan of either her or her ex husband after what they did, but I hope she has gotten right with the Lord since then.

    DK for your sake I hope she gets right with you.

    Her heart makes her right with the Lord. But what do I know? I'm not a Christian.

    You bring out the devil in me Dk. I just want to dip your pigtails in ink! This one's for you babe...

    Who told you I wear pigtails??????

    (LOL I have no idea what you just said to me, but I laughed at the image.)

    Anyways, am I supposed to like the fact they took advantage of Christian's generosity? I can and do forgive her, but it doesn't mean I have to be a fan of what she was a part of. I am not a fan of many televangelists truth be known. I hope she has repented and is ready for Heaven when her time comes soon.

    ETA: You have the gift of reading hearts??? I thought only I had such gifts!*

    In Catholic school when I was young they still had inkwells in the desks. But there was no longer any ink in them. It is a famous naughty to dip someone's pigtails in ink in school.

    Once upon a time we all had long hair.

    I guess I just like to tease you because you get so fierce and serious.
