Conservative celebrity Glenn Beck has
denied his new book The 7: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your
Life is a “gay parenting handbook.”
The 46-year-old Beck, who
rankled conservatives last year when he said that he was OK with gay
marriage, appears on the cover holding his young son Rafe as
co-author Keith Ablow, M.D smiles at the pair from behind.
“For people who are looking for The
7 today and you see it maybe on a bookshelf, it's not a gay
parenting manual,” Pat Gray, co-host
of Beck's syndicated radio show The
Glenn Beck Program, said on Tuesday.
“Not that there's anything wrong with
gay parenting manuals, but this isn't one,” Gray said.
“From the book cover, you would
clearly think that Glenn and Keith are in love and they've adopted
this child,” he added.
Beck, however, disagreed, saying that
he wanted Ablow on the cover because The 7 is not a political
book but rather a book about “being happy and finding yourself.”
