Who should get custody when lesbians split up? The natural mother?

The Pink News often has interesting stories. This one shows why we should not interfere with nature. People get hurt, including children. And this also shows, yet again, that homosexuality can be dispensed with.

The biological mother of a seven-year-old Vermont girl has been ordered by a court to hand her over to her former partner.

Lisa Miller and Janet Jenkins had a civil union ceremony in Vermont, America, in 2000 and their daughter Isabella was born to Miller two years later through artificial insemination.

But the couple split up in 2003 when Miller became an evangelical Christian and renounced homosexuality. She then moved to Virginia.

Their civil union was dissolved in 2007 and Miller was granted custody of Isabella with Jenkins allowed liberal visiting rights.

The Supreme Courts of Virginia and Vermont agreed with this decision, saying the case was equal to a heterosexual couple fighting over custody.

However, a family court judge found Miller in contempt of court last month for denying Jenkins access to her child, Associated Press reports.

Judge William D Cohen, the family court judge in Vermont, ruled that the only way to ensure fair access was to switch custody rights to Jenkins.

He denied a request from Miller to delay the transfer but then said she had apparently “disappeared” with Isabella and broken contact with her lawyers.

Her lawyers have said that moving the child would be difficult for her, and that she shares her mother’s beliefs about homosexuality.

Miller was ordered to hand over custody this Friday at 1pm at the home of Jenkins’ parents in Virginia.

Again, we have our old friend ‘equality’ to blame. This case is not equal to a heterosexual couple fighting over custody.

    It most certainly is not: the other woman shares no DNA with the child. At least that is one bit of good news for the unfortunate child.

  2. Stewart Cowan says:

    Yes, Jim, the mother has renounced homosexuality and become a Christian: two major reasons for the PC system to take her child from her and give her to the lesbian woman.

    Praise God that He has set this woman free from her iniquitous habits.

  4. Stewart Cowan says:

    Absolutely, English. It is wonderful.

    You and I agree that a certain amount of self-denial, from time to time, is essential if, as a race, we are to work together. We may not be very good at it – often we will fail – but we should at least be aware that the more we try in some ways, if not in all ways, the better things will be for all of us. And there are too many of us now to return to a time when we could not work together. My objection in this case is nothing to do with this appalling cretins’s ‘sexuality’ and is all to do with the fact that the non-mother clearly puts her own ‘rights’ and ‘status’ ahead of the child’s well-being. Unless the biological mother is criminally negligent of the child in some way, of course. Do we have any reason to suspect that? I have no idea. It’s a genuine question. BTW – I would not count wishing to impart faith as ‘negligent’, just for the record. I know some would.

    It’s a newspaper article, so we probably don’t know all the pertinent info, but from what we do know, the mother should clearly have custody.

    Her biggest mistake seems to have been entering into a ‘civil union’.
