Sins of the father

Ever wondered what happened to the son of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker? Apparently, enough people did that the Sundance Channel decided to give them what they want with the new reality miniseries One Punk under God.

The scandal that haunts his family seems to have shaped Jay Bakker in interesting ways. While it's great that he hung on to faith and is trying to share it with his community, it's fairly troubling that, if the Post has captured his feeling correctly, he doesn't seem to see the problems with his parents', er, creative accounting methods. I understand that "it's not fun trying to raise money for your church when you're a Bakker," but it might not be quite so bad if people knew that you took a firm stand on this kind of thing. On the other hand, it can't be all that easy to take such a public stand regarding your own father.

Anyone around here who has the Sundance Channel and watches this show, I'd like to hear your take on it.
