This Christian Preacher Has No Idea Why His eBook’s Cover is Unintentionally Hilarious…

Here’s some helpful advice: If you’re a fundamentalist Christian, and you’re writing a book about the Bible Principles of Child Discipline (such as “You cannot raise the kids without a paddle”), and you’re looking for a perfect family to put on your book’s cover, you should do a little bit of research when picking a photo…

That, of course, would be one of the families featured on the ABC sitcom “Modern Family,” a show that several religious groups love to hate because it features a homosexual couple (with an adopted child, no less) and was once touted as the “next big thing for gay rights”:

Author and “Old-Fashioned Bible Preacher” Doug Sehorne has no idea, does he…?

***Update***: Doug Sehorne has responded to his book’s cover on Facebook:

Well, I just got a phone call about the picture I used on my Book on Child Discipline. Evidently, it is from a wicked TV show involving a gay couple! Here is the situation.

1. I do not even have a TV and have not for 35 years.

2. I never heard of the TV Show.

3. I got the image from a search on Google Images, which I assumed were not copyrighted, etc.

4. Anyone who knows me, knows I would never condone such wickedness as sodomy or even TV.

Your friends will warn you and your enemies will attack without knowing all the facts.

I am in the process now of removing the book and changing the cover.

Thanks for the friends who warned me. ~ God bless you!
