With Tammy Faye Bakker dead and buried, son Jay Bakker will probably have a pretty lonely Mother’s Day weekend But, wait! What’s that? There are gays in need of Bakker-patented preaching? Hoo-rah!

Bakker’s currently in Texas petitioning anti-gay preacher man Joel Osteen to join a “non-traditional family” picnic this Saturday. Bakker says he wants to do two things: one, honor his mother and, two, praise Jesus. At least one of things is really gay.

I want to celebrate my mother’s life and help spread the message she lived and preached. We need to stop thinking of ourselves as ‘us’ and ‘them.’ We hope the families of Lakewood Church will open their hearts and minds to us and sit down and have a conversation and share a meal… Let’s put our differences aside and share the love and hope of Christ.

Bakker also hopes he can persuade Olsteen to speak up for the gay folk. If Osteen refuses – well, it’s time to bring out the big guns: the ghost of Tammy Faye. That’s one spirit you don’t want to feel!
