I am utterly fascinated by the fact that seemingly nobody on the Right is willing or capable of decrying the fact that Lisa Miller has kidnapped her daughter and disappeared rather than abide by court ordered custody arrangements with her ex-partner.
So far, the National Organization for Marriage’s Maggie Gallagher has been the only one even willing to say that she “cannot endorse what Lisa Miller has done,” though even she followed that up by saying “but I understand it.”
Others who have weighed in, like Peter Sprigg and Gordon Klingenschmitt, fully support Miller’s actions, while Miller’s lawyers at the Liberty Counsel have quietly been trying to wash its hands of the case and steadfastly refusing to even comment.
And now, via OneNewsNow, we find yet another activist, Peter Heck, condoning and justifying Miller’s action:
It’s interesting how “civil unions” are always portrayed as the happy middle ground in the battle over same-sex marriage. Even some pro-family advocates are willing to accept the legitimacy of civil unions as some sort of victory for them since they stop short of conferring the semantic title of “marriage” upon homosexual partners. And yet, this tragic story involving the innocent Isabella demonstrates that “civil unions” are not effective compromises, but rather weapons used by social activists to assist in their ongoing struggle to undo cultural norms and moral standards through legal confusion.
Consider also that Janet’s attorneys are attempting to use the 1980 Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act to benefit their client. The PKPA was enacted to prevent a disgruntled parent who lost a custody hearing from taking their child into another state to try to get a different custody ruling. In other words, this law was intended to prevent a rightful biological parent from having their child taken from them. Yet, thanks to what the homosexual lobby has accomplished, this law is now being twisted into a tool to do exactly what it was intended to prevent.
When Hollywood portrays or the mainstream media reports on those practicing homosexuality, they paint a picture of normalcy that does not exist, and they engage in grotesque mischaracterizations that equate sexual behavior (that is always a choice) with genetic identity (that is never a choice). The consequence is a fundamental reshaping of society — families reconstituted, laws rewritten, mores restructured.
Despite the propaganda campaign to portray homosexuals as passive victims and those with traditional moral values as aggressive oppressors, the “gay rights” movement is seeking this very type of cultural revolution. But don’t take my word for it. Paula Ettelbrick, the former legal director for the homosexual Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, said: “Being queer is more than setting up house, sleeping with a person of the same gender, and seeking state approval for doing so….Being queer means pushing the parameters of sex, sexuality, and family, and in the process transforming the very fabric of society.”
Indeed it does. And little girls like Isabella have their lives ruined in the process.
