a question and an answer

First, the question. A book came out earlier this year addressing homosexuality and is aimed at kids, to "positively influence the lives of thousands of children growing up in tumultuous and confusing times". The book? Does God Love Michael's Two Daddies?. Oh yes, it is every thing you're thinking it is. There isn't a description on Amazon but I found it on the publisher's site (emphasis theirs, btw):
For the last 15 years, the homosexual community has been publishing children’s books promoting homosexuality, starting with the book Heather Has Two Mommies. Other books such as Daddy’s Roommate and My Two Uncles have followed suit. To our knowledge, no comparable children’s book designed to combat the promotion of homosexuality is available on the market—until now. Does God Love Michael’s Two Daddies? is a professionally designed and illustrated book that promotes God’s love for all individuals, while at the same time showing, in a loving way, that homosexuality is wrong. This book has tremendous potential to positively influence the lives of thousands of children growing up in tumultuous and confusing times.
I half expected World Ahead Publishing to be behind it but, no, it is Apologetics Press, an evangelical apologetics organization that describes itself as being a "defender of Christianity".

So what is the answer to, not just the question posed by the title of this book, but to the motivations and people behind such nonsense?

A movie.

for the BIBLE tell me so is an award-winning documentary that looks into scripture and "in the process reveals that Church-sanctioned anti-gay bias is based almost solely upon a significant (and often malicious) misinterpretation of the Bible."
