Obviously, gay affirming therapy injured Lisa Miller. How many others have been harmed?
The Lisa Miller Case: Cultural Revolution, Judicial Tyranny and Our National Future
By Deacon Keith Fournier
This tragic custody case sets up what is called a conflict of laws issue, pitting the law of one State against another as a part of a homosexual advocacy agenda.
It was during “therapy” that Lisa claims she was first exposed to the prospect of being a lesbian. In a candid interview with LifeSite news in October of 2008 she told a sad and troubling story of what amounts to recruitment into what many are pushing as an alternative lifestyle. She maintained that she was encouraged in counseling sessions to try lesbian relationships. This happened not just once, but twice; both times within the context of “therapy” as she tried to free herself from the pain and wounds of a difficult life.
After a continuing sad spiral of events which ended with the death of her mother she met
The two traveled to
Of course, that is not a physical possibility and it never will be. So Lisa sought the services of a “fertility specialist” in
This medical “professional” inseminated her with sperm from an anonymous donor. He followed the growing approach of treating children as a commodity and their creation as an act of medical manufacturing. So Isabella was born in
Four months after Isabella was born, Lisa,
She began to change her life and received helpful counseling from people without an agenda. They assisted her in coming to understand her painful past and the effect it had upon her behaviors, her choices, and her addictions. Lisa became increasingly concerned for her daughter and returned to her home state of
Lisa later sought to dissolve the civil union in
This tragic case sets up what is called a conflict of laws issue, pitting the law of one State against another. This specter hangs over many such homosexual relationships as the patchwork of court enforced schemes of calling them a “marriage” unfolds. It is a deliberate result of the strategy of cultural revolutionaries in the Homosexual Equivalency movement who are setting up what they hope will be their vehicle for enforcing their cultural revolution Nationally through the Courts.
The Homosexual Equivalency movement seeks to force legal recognition of homosexual relationships as the equivalent of a marriage. In so doing, they end up opposing marriage. Oh, they are verbal engineers, using Orwellian language, calling for “marriage equality” and the “freedom to marry”. It is simply a verbal slight of hand similar to the use of the word “choice” by those early abortion advocates. Such wordsmithing simply constitutes verbal engineering. It is an effort to cover over the truth.
These activists are advancing their Cultural Revolution not by vote of the people but by judicial and legislative fiat in a kind of new alchemy. They are using Courts and, as in
They have developed a verbal strategy and a legal strategy. Their goal is to use the Police Power of the State in order to force a new social and legal order whether we all want it or not. A part of that strategy, used increasingly by homosexual legal advocacy groups such as Lambda Legal who involved themselves in this case, is to set up a constitutional law claim - like the one which the Lisa Miller case creates - hoping to change the law through their legal activism.
At all stages of litigation the
After each visitation Isabella had severe reactions including nightmares and bed wetting. She expressed fears that her mother Lisa was going to be taken from her. Isabella even tried to harm herself. Sources allege that during the Court ordered visits
Lisa could not stand to see what was happening to her daughter Isabella. She stopped fully complying with the visitation order. She urged the court to consider allowing only limited supervised visitation, and only in her presence.
Since Isabella was 17 months old, the period of time when Lisa left the relationship and the troubled living situation,
The Vermont Judge ruled on January 1, 2010 that
Lisa Miller is a mother who could no longer stand to see her child force fed what she contended was poison. She felt that after each visit the harm that was being inflicted on her daughter was increasing. The record indicates that even though Lisa asked the Vermont Judge to listen to evidence of the violent reactions of Isabella after each of these few visitations, the Judge refused. He treated this case like an ordinary domestic breakup between a husband and a wife. After all, that is what happens when a State treats such living relationships in a manner equivalent to marriage.
This case presents an opportunity to ask some deeply important questions. The approach taken by the Judge in
Homosexual relationships are different. They are often harmful to the participants. They are harmful to the children. For example, they cause severe confusion to children. Isabella was introduced by order of a Court to a stranger whom she did not know. That stranger insisted she was her mother. Isabella knew her Mom and her name is Lisa, not
The Lisa Miller Case presents an example of the misuse of Fertility Technology. Science is to serve the person, the family and the common good. Otherwise, as history bears out, it can unleash some very detrimental results. In addition to being immoral, this particular misuse has now also became fodder for the strategy of the new Cultural Revolutionaries in their legal strategy to advance their agenda.
The Lisa Miller case reveals the dangers of judicial tyranny. The Judicial branch used to be called the “least dangerous branch”. Courts were arbiters not super legislatures which could make law. Now, unelected Judges are used as tools for effecting social change. This approach fails to respect the separation of powers doctrine and threatens our Republic.
However, it is even worse in the case of a Court created “right” such as the alleged "right" to kill children in the womb. Court insistence that we treat homosexual relationships as equivalent to marriage is another example of calling something a "right" which is not! In these instances Judges often clothe themselves in self serving claims that they are enforcing the “rule of law” while they are violating the Natural Law which is its very source.
Finally, the Lisa Miller case raises serious questions concerning the Nature of Law itself. Is an unjust law a law? Is the law simply what a Court says it is? Or, is there a Higher Law, a Natural Law to which positive or civil law must render an account?
Who has first legal authority in the lives of our children? Have we come to the hour when children are becoming “mere creatures of the State”? Is Lisa Miller the first of a growing number of mothers, or even fathers, who will form a new underground railroad in this brave new world being foisted upon us by the new cultural revolutionaries of the homosexual equivalency movement?
The Lisa Miller Case brings together the misuse of fertility technology, the new Cultural Revolution, the threat of Judicial Tyranny and the assault on the authority of the Family in a case of monumental societal implications. It sounds a clear warning which must be heard before it is too late.
