Voices of Faith
The Rev. Jay Bakker moved his Revolution church to Minneapolis just in time for the marriage equality vote, and in its honor, used a rainbow loaf for communion.
"[T]he rainbow communion bread became a really beautiful thing," explains Bakker. "It was special to honor Chirst as well as to honor those LGBT people who didn't make it this far and hope for a better future. It became a real source of redemption."....

Bakker reports that the rainbow communion has gotten people questioning his orthodoxy. He responds that "I don't think Jesus is insecure about sharing communion with others, including gay folks who suffered. So many lives have beeen lost because of what Christians say and preach. Heterosexisim and homophobia are deadly."
