Christian author Amber Dee Parker just released a new children’s book designed to teach children that real families are straight ones. The Journal Star reports:
People who have never met Amber Dee Parker or read her children’s book call her hateful. A bigot. But the Lincoln-born-and-raised first-time author is resolute in her conviction: Her book “God Made Dad & Mom” offers a loving and gentle way to teach children about the sinfulness of same-sex marriage and the homosexual “lifestyle choice.” She says the words on the 32-page book are not her own, but God’s — as revealed to her one night in 2009… She is certain God called her to write this storybook four years ago — the morning after Iowa voted to recognize same-sex marriages. She woke up with the story fully written in her head. “I couldn’t get out of bed fast enough,” she recalled. “God gave me the story which ran through my mind like a Rolodex.”
I’m sure she’ll sell thousands, to Christians who want to teach their kids that being gay is a sin. And many of those kids will be gay or lesbian or bisexual or transgender, and will grow up thinking their very existence is a sin. Very sad.
