`Sex-y' sermons cause stir in rural Alabama

You can't legally buy beer in Cullman County, and a preacher is talking about the delicate subject of S-E-X on Sunday morning?

Daystar Church pastor Jerry Lawson's monthlong focus on sex has run up against some opposition in Good Hope -- a conservative north Alabama community.

Some folks are upset over the church's billboards, which advertise the sermon series and accompanying Web site.

Lawson says the purpose of his sermons and the signs is to get Christian parents talking to their kids about sex before they learn too much immorality from TV or playground buddies.

Daystar was a country church when Lawson arrived nearly nine years ago. The church "relaunched" itself in the pattern of an urban megachurch in 2002.
