Skip to comments.Lesbian awarded custody of Christian's only child
Posted on 12/06/2009 3:29:01 PM PST by thisisthetime
A Vermont court ordered a Christian child taken away from her mother and given to a lesbian ex-partner, setting up, according to a lawyer for the Christian family, a dispute that the U.S. Supreme Court likely will have to resolve.
Mathew Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, told WND the recent order from the Vermont judge that Lisa Miller turn over her young daughter, Isabella, to the lesbian ex-partner, Janet Jenkins, on New Year's Day is being appealed.
In the interim, a separate court hearing on the dispute is scheduled to be heard in a Virginia court during this coming week.
"We're arguing that the state of Virginia cannot enforce an out of state, Vermont, civil union because it's contrary to Virginia law," Staver said.
Ultimately, he said, the issue probably will have to be resolved by the U.S. Supreme Court, because the case is being moved along parallel tracks in both Vermont, where Jenkins lives, and Virginia, where the Millers live.

Hey that’s what happens when you enter into those kind of arrangements. You can’t just say “Well I’m a Christian now. I win.”
A judge is just a lawyer with too much power.
This is extremely sad. I read that the (still) lesbian “partner” didn’t even want the child until she was pressured by the gay mafia to file suit.
Which woman gave birth to the child?
Oh boy. This case just keeps on getting worse.
Check out this nugget:
“The case earlier was complicated when Jenkins’ Virginia attorney withdrew “after he was indicted for obstructing justice and tampering with evidence regarding a murder that occurred in his home, where his college male friend was sodomized and killed,” Liberty Counsel said.
Bull$&@%! This perverted monster never saught custody. She can’t just say “hey I want to steal this Christian’s daughter” and get away with it. She doesn’t care about little Isabella. She wants to indoctrinate her into her political views, that homosexuality is okay. Jenkins believes that a Christian household is a “bad environment” for Isabella! She wouldn’t even go to Isabella’s Christmas plays because she was offended by the Christian atmosphere. It’s so obvious that she is only using the girl to advance the homosexual agenda.
>>Its so obvious that she is only using the girl to advance the homosexual agenda.<<
Hell, we have allowed that to happen in this country ever since we allowed gay parades and have emulated and fawned over everything having to do with homosexuality. Now it will bite us in the ass more and more. Evil never sleeps.
IIRC from prior threads:
Lisa Miller was artificially inseminated by an unnamed/unknown sperm donor and gave birth to the child. Miller is the biological mother of the child. Miller has renounced her lesbianism and returned to her Christian roots.
Jenkins is Miller’s former lesbian partner - who is now living with another lesbian partner and has been awarded full custody of the child - who is not hers by any stretch of the perverted imagination that passes for justice or the child’s interests.
Will Ken Cuccinelli, our new Attorney General, have a role in the outcome?
Then how about, "Well, I'm the child's REAL, BIOLOGICAL mother now, not the lesbian who never even adopted the child. I win."
Does that argument fly in your world?
***Will Ken Cuccinelli, our new Attorney General, have a role in the outcome?***
I’m not an attorney - we need help on this from our FR legal eagles.
****choosing the homosexual lifestyle should make one ineligible to have ANY contact at all with children***
Sadly, there are women selling their bio eggs, renting their wombs as incubators for IVF on behalf of gay men.
Lesbian women have eggs & wombs - all they require to bear children are sperm donors.
Harvesting the miracles of modern technology.
And I'm in one of the most "gayest" counties in the U.S.A, name of Broward COunty, FLorida.
I am extremely-wroth [angry] at what's been forced on this very young and innocent girl!
Aren’t both of these women lesbians that have since split up?
ugh!!! Just because it is medically possible does not make it right.
So wrong, actually!
“Will Ken Cuccinelli, our new Attorney General, have a role in the outcome”?
...if so, that would be a good thing! I live in richmond and worked for the McDonnell ticket and am so psyched about our new Gov/Lt/Atty Gen!!
This is obscene. I cannot understand any court’s ruling that would take away a mother’s biological child and award custody to an ex-lover who has had no contact with that child in years. The court would not do such a thing if the ex-lover were not homosexual. This is a judge with an agenda, plain and simple. No court would award custody of a mother’s biological child to her ex-boyfriend who was her common-law husband under another state’s laws. It simply wouldn’t happen.
Yup. “We” asked for it.
I’d love to hear B.O.s thought on this.
How do you justify taking a child away from its mother?
The “partner” never adopted the child. She has as much right to take the child as you do - no right at all.
No. Lisa Miller, who gave birth to Isabella, has renounced lesbianism. The real problem here is the tug of war between the states. Both sides are looking to this case for potentially major precedent law. Vermont has awarded custody, but Virginia doesn’t recognize the civil union upon which the Vermont court is basing its decision. So if Vermont can ultimately compel Virginia to enforce the custody order, Virginia shall have lost the benefits of its Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). For more reading, see:
Exactly. There are consequences for your actions.
Simply amazing. I cannot even comprehend taking a child from its biological mother and giving it to another person. Slippery legal slope.

Frankly the little girl should go to the FATHER.
It’s clear mom has ISSUES.
Did anyone else think this was a weird headline? What, it would have been less shocking if the Mom had had a "spare" child or two?
Yes, Cuccinelli will be on the right side if he's involved.
The consequences shouldn’t be at the expense of the child though. This wouldn’t have happened to a heterosexual divorced couple where the former husband never adopted the child.
Do you really think so? The father is just an anonymous sperm donor. I almost hate to raise the question, but what kind of man does that? I feel for those who cannot bear children of their own, but I think we have introduced an intolerable level of ethical complexity via “sperm loans.” Children, by the design of nature and nature’s God, need to be raised by two fit, sexually complimentary parents. If Lisa Miller has been restored to her natural heterosexuality, and no other disqualifying factors are present, there is no reason to regard her as an unfit parent. Whereas, a father in sperm only (FISO?), who not only has had no involvement in the child’s life whatsoever, but who is absolutely careless in the manner by which he sows his oats, has significant fitness issues. No, IMHO, Lisa, imperfect as she is, imperfect as the situation is, remains the best choice, not only because she is the biological mother, but because she is the only parent who has shown the love of a parent to this child. To Jenkins, she’s just a pawn; to the anonymous father, she’s just a spawn; to Lisa, she is the fruit of her womb and the love of her life. They should not be separated by ignoble politics.
I agree. There is an injustice. No doubt. But the family court system is so flawed and broken. I know this from personal experience. Unfortunately life isn’t fair and God says it’s not going to be because Adam and Eve chose sin. So this mom should continue to fight and I hope she wins. But had she had not chosen her sinful actions her child wouldn’t be having to be put in a situation that is bad for the child.
God is good and I hope this mother and child will cling to Him no matter what happens.
He probably doesn't make enough to weigh in on this decision either.
The Kids Innocence Coalition reported that the Vermont woman had no interest in the child. That a gay group paid her to fight this, so they could judge shop and establish some kind of judicial precedent (since gays consistently lose at the polls). Sickening.
The judge who ordered full custody to the ex-girlfriend is pathological and needs prayer.
dude!! Nightmares, dude!
Whatever advances the destruction of The United States.
Miller. Jenkins isn't even an adoptive "parent".
Then put the little girl up for adoption.
This little girl doesn't need MORE confusion about gender roles. There are plenty of NORMAL heterosexual parents dying to have a little white girl.
Did you actually read the article?
OH MY HECK! Is that real?!
