HECK: The misguided practice of homosexual family law

The consequences of which is a reshaping of society.

The story is both heartbreaking and infuriating. Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council recently wrote a column telling this painful account that is being completely and totally ignored by the mainstream press.

Lisa Miller, a Virginia woman, is the mother of a beautiful 7-year-old girl named Isabella. Isabella was the product of artificial insemination, meaning that her biological father was an anonymous sperm donor making Lisa her only known biological parent.

At the time Lisa had Isabella conceived in her womb, she was practicing homosexuality with a woman named Janet Jenkins. For the first year of Isabella’s life, Lisa and Janet maintained a relationship, even traveling to Vermont to obtain the legal recognition known as a “civil union.” As time went by, however, Lisa began to realize that her effort to find fulfillment in sexual depravity wasn’t working. She began to attend a Christian church again and soon decided to end the relationship. She and her biological daughter then moved back to Virginia where Lisa has raised her for the last six years.

Initially, Isabella was taken to Janet for visitation, but many times would return from those trips emotionally distressed, confused and sometimes experiencing severe anxiety. Concerned for the well-being of her daughter, Lisa ended the visitation sessions with Janet … and set into motion a series of events that prove the backwards and radical nature of the homosexual lobby.  

It also proves the utter foolishness behind the notion advanced by the homosexual movement that a person’s identity should be defined by their chosen behaviors. The fact is that homosexuality is what a person does, not who a person is. And failing to understand that has tragic implications for both the family and society at large.

Because the state of Vermont gave into the bullying tactics of the homosexual political agenda, it wrote utter nonsense into its law that is now upending any rational approach to the Lisa-Janet-Isabella saga. Vermont’s highest court has ordered that Lisa surrender Isabella to the authorities, who will then give custody to Janet as the rightful parent.
