Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this reality series addresses the potentially sensitive topic of religion, with some bias toward or against certain religions. Jay Bakker (the son of '70s and '80s TV evangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker) mentions having a difficult time with religion as he was growing up, and he's now creating his own religion, which bucks some of the conventions of Christianity. This may upset viewers who have an unquestioning faith. It may prompt others to think about what they do or don't believe in.

Sexual Content

There's some mention of Jim Bakker's infidelity ("he had sex with a woman he shouldn't have had sex with").
