It’s a complicated story, but let’s see if I can break down the major points correctly.
1. In 2000, Lisa Miller and Janet Jenkins get civil unioned in Vermont.
2. In 2002, Miller has a baby girl via artificial insemination.
3. In 2003, the couple breaks up when Miller “renounces” homosexuality, becomes an evangelical Christian, and moves to Virginia, taking the baby with her.
4. In December 2009, Miller turns off her phone and goes into hiding when a Vermont judge awards custody of the now 7 year-old girl to her former partner after Miller refuses to abide by court-ordered visitation rights.
And who’s behind this latest development? Matt Barber’s Liberty Counsel, who clearly have no respect for the rule of law. But remember, he signed the Manhattan Declaration, which vows disobedience of any law protecting the rights of gay people.
