Christian TV Network Daystar televangelist Marcus Lamb admits to past affair
This Lamb guy has been married for many years and heads a pretty big American Christian television network.
No, married people are not above sexual sin. Not all un-married Christians are sleeping around.

A prominent Tarrant County televangelist appeared before a worldwide television audience Tuesday to admit that he had an affair with a woman years ago — and to allege that three people had tried to extort millions of dollars from him to stay quiet about his infidelity.
The Rev. Marcus Lamb, who created Daystar Television Network with his wife, Joni, said he and his wife had healed their marriage and had hoped to keep his adultery private but went public because they would not pay extortionists. The three people demanded $7.5 million, he said.
Update, Dec 2021
I am disgusted how a lot of insanely pro-vaccine people are framing this guy’s death (from Covid, I believe), in light of his view of being anti-vaccine mandate, and I say this as someone who yes, got vaccinated for Covid-19 months ago.
People and news outlets can’t just explain that this guy died, no, they have to work in that he was anti-vaccine mandate, too – as if to suggest he somehow ‘deserved’ to die.
It is grotesque.
This was CBS’ headline, for example:
“Marcus Lamb, head of televangelist network that spreads COVID misinformation, dies of COVID-19”

The family asks that their privacy be respected as they grieve this difficult loss. Please continue to lift them up in prayer,” the network’s Twitter post read.
