Mennonite pastor jailed for refusing to testify in case involving lesbian visitation
CWN - January 29, 2013
A Mennonite pastor in Vermont has been jailed for contempt of court after he refused to testify in a case involving a woman who fled with her daughter to avoid a court order requiring the daughter to visit her former lesbian partner.
Kenneth Miller told the court that testifying would violate his religious beliefs. He was sentenced to a 10-day prison stay.
Miller was called to testify in the case of Lisa Miller (not a relative), a woman who joined his Mennonite community after abandoning a lesbian relationship. When a Vermont court ruled that Miller must allow her daughter to visit with her former lesbian partner, Miller took the child and left the country.
Kenneth Miller also faces charged for helping Lisa Miller to leave the US with her daughter.
