Lisa Miller given 30 more days in hiding before arrest warrant

From the Washington Post:

A judge is giving a Virginia woman at the center of a lesbian custody dispute 30 days to appear in court with her 7-year-old daughter or face possible arrest.

Despite all the accusations of judicial activism from the supporters of Lisa Miller, Judge Cohen has been, to my way of thinking, extremely generous in giving Miller chance after chance after chance to simply conform to the custody to which she agreed. And even though it is clear that Miller is actively thwarting the will of the court, he generously gives her more time.

Of course those who see the world in terms of good (Miller) and evil (militant radical deviant homosexualist bloggers like me) will continue to denounce Cohen as a tool of Satan and see this continued generosity as a sign of the miraculous hand of God.

Yes, it’s quite clear how living on the run is in the best interests of the child.

That’s just what I was thinking, Aconite. I look forward to hearing how Lisa Miller’s supporters expect her to provide for her child from inside a prison cell.

I’m praying for the poor child. It’s clear that she needs to be with her other mother.

I would agree with Timothy that Judge Cohen has been extremely generous in his dealings with Lisa Miller. I wonder if his generosity in this case is typical of how he deals with contentious custody cases with poorly behaved parents. I would think that most other judges would have come down harder on Miller a long time ago.

Unlike most contentious custody cases, Cohen is also dealing with the issue of gay marriage and the venom of the Falwell cult.

My experience (personal) is that unless the custodian in violation is slapped down, and slapped down hard and quickly by the law for the violation, they will view the lack of punishment as weakness and it will enable further violations.

What was unclear about the previous ruling?

The court should immediately charge Miller with kidnapping, a federal (felony) charge.

If a non-custodial parent falls behind 30 days on child support payments, the machinery of the state is well-oiled and swift to deal with it.

Non-compliance and contumacious contempt for visitation?
Not so much.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
