New Kids’ Book: God Didn’t Make Your Two Dads

Noted hate group The American Family Association never fails to disappoint. The virulently anti-gay organization has endorsed what Amazon reviewers have made clear is an offensive children’s book, God Made Dad & Mom, which tells the story of Michael, an adopted boy who takes a trip to the zoo to learn how God made people (and all animals) — with a mommy and a daddy. Apparently, this informative zoo outing neglected to provide all the pertinent facts about what daddy animals really get up to with other daddy animals.

After this failed fact-finding mission, Michael — who, as an adopted child of interracial parents is part of a “non-traditional” home — feels compelled to pray for the breakup of classmate Jimmy’s family, as his friend has been cursed with the immoral, unnatural situation of having two loving dads. “Dear Jesus,” implores little Mikey, “Please show Jimmy and his dads the truth about how you made them and how much you love them.” Here the clearly confused author tells us that Jesus — not God — made people, which would be one neat trick, considering that Jesus was a person. That theological oopsie aside, the takeaway is that God’s/Jesus’ love, in right-wing nutso world, is not unconditional as per the Bible, but is instead contingent upon one’s private sex life being deemed acceptable by conservatives with whom one is unacquainted — and the government.

AFA president Tim Wildmon, who along with his similarly gay-obsessed partner in (hate) crime Bryan Fischer, has vowed to keep up the fight against what he calls “Big Gay,” has given the book his stamp of approval — seriously, it’s actually stamped on the front cover, they’re so darned proud of this dubious honor — presumably because “the idea of two grooms makes [him] throw up.” Wildmon’s gag reflex is indeed admirable, as thinking about what those two grooms might be doing on their wedding night obviously takes up a great deal of his time.

Author Amber Dee Parker, a fresh-faced Stepford Zombie, explains the story in an insidiously sickly sweet, smug and judgmental drawl in the video below — which, unsurprisingly, doesn’t allow comments.

    If you’ve not clicked on the highlighted, “hate group,” Do so. It is the website
    of The Southern Poverty Law Center. And read what these hateful MF are
    writing. If it doesn’t make you completely sickened, and outraged. You probably
    agree with it.

      Sad part about this is that ever since Obama got elected, these groups have been growing in leaps and bounds.

        That’s true. The election of Barack Obama, said some very
        good things about America. An undeniable representation, of
        how far we had progressed, in our rejection of not only overt
        racism, since MLK. But also, the rejection of covert racism. Demonstrated undisputedly, in the privacy of the voting booth.
        A validation, if you will, of King’s message, by mainstream America.
        No small feat, when we consider, King was able to lead most of
        White America out of it’s morass of deep seated, and long held prejudices, from the grave. With only his writings, and a hand
        full of speeches, made over 40 years ago. And, Barack Obama,
        is a beneficiary of that. It’s hard to imagine, that for some, the
        election of Obama to the Nation’s highest office, was an outrage.
        It angered every fiber in their body. But, it’s not his color they insist, they object to, it’s his policies. Just like, it wasn’t the color of champion boxer, Jack Johnson, they objected to. But his lack of style. And the White women, he always had on his arm? Had nothing to with the huge crowds of White men, that showed up at his fights, hoping the White guy would knock him out. It wasn’t Jackie Robinson’s color, they protested. It was his poor play. Or his
        inability to deliver under pressure. Or catch, or throw. That caused the deluge of epithets, that were hurled at him from the stands.
        His lack of skill, they claimed, that caused the cursing! To quote
        Bill Maher, “Being a Republican, doesn’t mean you’re a racist.”
        “But, if you are a racist, you’re probably a Republican.”
