Jay Bakker, son of evangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, will come to Durham Sunday, April 22, at 1 p.m. to lead a rally against Amendment 1. The event is slated for the Trotter Building, 410 W. Geer St.

Bakker is the co-founder of Revolution Church and preaches in New York City. He is the subject of the 2006 documentary One Punk Under God.

Here is the press release:

The "Faith in Action: Get Out the Vote" ... will focus on the harms of a constitutional amendment on the May 8, 2012, North Carolina primary ballot that would threaten protections for the state's unmarried couples.

Rally speakers include Quaker peace activist David LaMotte, Pilgrim United Church of Christ pastor Rev. Ginger Brasher-Cunningham, evangelical author Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, charismatic Christian leader Jimmy Chalmers and Baptist minister Brian Ammons.

Directly following the rally, attendees will march to the polls to take advantage of Sunday voting during the early voting period. The afternoon concludes with a party at Durham's Fullsteam Brewery, 422 Rigsbee Ave., beginning around 3 p.m.
