Picture book teaches children of ‘God’s plan’ to demonize LGBT families


A new picture book from Amber Dee Parker and illustrator Hannah Sequra teaches children about “God’s plan for families between one mother and one father.”

Entitled “God Made Dad & Mom,” the book tells the story of a young boy named Michael who prays that his classmate Jimmy and his two dads will learn “the truth” about how God made them after a trip to the zoo where he’s told all animal families “consist of a male, a female, and their offspring.”

The book proudly displays an endorsement “by the president of the American Family Association.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies the AFA as an anti-gay “hate group.” Its president, Tim Wildmon, has said gay couples make him want to throw up and that homosexuality is something to “be ashamed of.”

In this video, Parker explains that her book “can be used as a tool by grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters” to educate youngsters in God’s plan.
