Religious Wingnut Uses Modern Family Portrait For “Biblical Child-Rearing” Book

8sOQ2MLAnti-gay Evangelist Doug Sehorne expected to get some great reviews when he self-published a book about fundamentalist parenting on Amazon this month. Instead, he was inundated with positive user reviews on the “hilarious” book cover.

That’s because his book, Bible Principles of Child Discipline from the Book of Proverbs, featured a family that probably wouldn’t agree with a word inside it: The Dunphys from ABC’s Modern Family.

Aside from suggesting that a random image from Google is acceptable cover art, the book also claims “you cannot raise the kids without a paddle.”

Once Sehorne figured out his poster family was actually “wicked” and had ties to another “gay couple,” he immediately removed the listing from Amazon and logged onto Rentboy posted this on his Facebook page:

“Well, I just got a phone call about the picture I used on my Book on Child Discipline. Evidently, it is from a wicked TV show involving a gay couple! Here is the situation.

1. I do not even have a TV and have not for 35 years.

2. I never heard of the TV Show.

3. I got the image from a search on Google Images, which I assumed were not copyrighted, etc.

4. Anyone who knows me, knows I would never condone such wickedness as sodomy or even TV.

Your friends will warn you and your enemies will attack without knowing all the facts. I am in the process now of removing the book and changing the cover.

Thanks for the friends who warned me. ~ God bless you!”

If you’re interested in “fresh Biblical insight on how to discipline children properly and teach them charater [sic],” Sehorne expects an updated copy to be available soon with a more appropriate cover image.
