Quote: Jay Bakker

"There were a lot of gay teenagers and gay people around me growing up. There are so many GLBT (gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender) people involved in Christian television and in gospel music. There always have been. 'Don't ask, don't tell.' I think the church started that."

Jay Bakker, 35, son of evangelists Jim Bakker and the late Tammy Faye Bakker Messner, pastor and author of Fall to Grace, in which he says homosexuality is neither a sin nor incompatible with an authentic faith life.
