Ex-gay Christian loses custody of her biological child to lesbian.

Sometimes, as the World's first heteroseparatist, I feel like a Jewish man who has just finished the secret construction of a giant, camouflaged radio tower in the middle of 1940's, Nazi-ruled Germany. I have so much material to work with!

Today's post is very near, if not an actual, perfect storm. I've got a Christian, ex-gay woman, unjustly losing custody of her biological, only child, due to what appears to be a homotalitarian judge, to a lesbian woman who dislikes Christians. Wow. Story here and here.


  1. Here are some facts:

    Miller voluntarily submitted to the jurisdiction of a Vermont court dissolving her civil union with Janet Jenkins. She agreed on visitation rights for Jenkins and she accepted child support money from Jenkins.

    Then Miller took the child to another state and tried for a new custody agreement. This raises the question -- and it's a very important question:

    If a parent is unhappy with visitation/custody outcome litigated in one state, can she ignore the resulting court order, and go pursue a new set of proceedings in what she expects to be a more favorable state?

    From a public policy standpoint, the answer is no. Otherwise you'd have parents fleeing from state to state, establishing 50 different custody arrangements for a single child. From a legal standpoint, the answer is also no, according to the Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1738A.

    The judges are not "homototalitarian." They are enforcing laws that have nothing to do with sexual orientation.

  2. It's "homotalitarian" not "homototalitarian."
