Michael's Two Daddies

The blog Jesus' General has been getting some help lately from Miss Poppy, who also runs a wonderful Christian Store on the web, where I have purchased numerous saintly gifts for friends, including anti-masturbation gum and the Jesus ashtray. Her first post there covers the new book, 'Does God Love Michael's Two Daddies?', a fundamentalist riposte to 'Heather has Two Mommies.' (Notably the book covers two gay men, not two gay women, as the Bible actually has very few things to say about lesbianism.)

Miss Poppy complains that there are no good reviews for the book, though of course now some wags are already starting to review the book at Amazon. However, she missed the review by Darby Dameron on the website of the publisher, Apologetics Press, which sad to say is not a parody:
'I am in education and see the trend of teaching tolerance to our young people and this scares me. Fortunately, I am in a school district where these views are not pushed on our children, yet they are still exposed to these ideas in the shows on TV and movies which come out. Myself and some of the other teachers have been looking for a book with a Christian view of homosexuality and I was excited when I picked up my copy of Reason and Revelation to find this book. I ordered it and have shared it with some of my friends. We appreciate the straightforward, scriptural approach to the topic. We may not be able to share it with our children in the classroom, but we can share it with our own chilren, who can then take these teachings to school. Thank you.'
You just can't make this shit up. To top it off, the book is written by one Sheila K. Butt.
