Pastor complains after Denver jail bans baptisms

DENVER — A Pentecostal pastor is complaining after officials at the Denver County Jail banned baptism of inmates by total immersion in a bathtub-sized tank.

Maurice Gordon says the jail previously allowed him to perform the Christian ceremony, but canceled it after a baptism in March.

According to the Denver Post, jail officials told him to sprinkle prisoners with water, but jail officials say the ban is not permanent
