WATCH: New Anti-Gay Children’s Book Teaches “God Made Mom & Dad”

Amber Dee Parker believes the children are our future. But in order for them to lead the way she’s really trying to teach them well. In that big Jesus-loving head of hers that means denying the existence of homosexuality and indoctrinating bigotry as soon as kids can point in shame.

In her new children’s book, God Made Mom & Dad, the protagonist, a young boy named Michael, learns the meaning of traditional families during a school trip to the zoo. Next thing you know, he’s talking to his dad about praying that his friend Jimmy and his two dads find their way to  the truth about how God made them.

Dr. Seuss this is not, unless we’re talking about his long-lost book, One Gay, Two Gays, You’re Both Going to Hell.

      If the existence of this book has made you despair at all; here are the Amazon 5 star reviews to cheer you up.

      Spouting hatred in bold color illustrations. If you want to teach that lesson specific to your faith that is fine, but don’t pull the “Jimmy has two Dads” BS for the main character to pray for guidance. He should be praying that Jimmy is a lucky boy to have parents who love him as much as his own Mom & Dad. Not that Jimmy should be seen as unlucky, or wrong. Hate is hate regardless. This does not teach God’s love in any form.

      She had nothing better to do.
      Funny how people preach hate with a big smile on their face, all in the name of God.

      As others have made more salient points I shall go directly to Ad Hominem and say that I was nearly blinded by her lip gloss in this video and suspect it was applied with a zamboni.

      Maruchi #2 Thank you for the Amazon link to comments about this book. They were priceless. It gives me hope that the bigots are losing their ground.

      In 20 years this will be seen as pure anti-gay propaganda. The author will be on the wrong side of history.

      These people see us ALL as morally and spiritually bankrupt by default. This is what this book is based in.

      Interesting note: “God Made Dad And Mom?” These folks are so obsessed with their patriarchal worldview that they sacrifice even common idioms to put men over women. I am so glad I belong to a sensible denomination.

      @GordonSoleil: Until you pointed that out I had been reading it as Mom And Dad without even thinking.
