Source: 8-15-2007, CWFA update on the Lisa Miller case:
Virginia resident Lisa Miller, mother of five-year-old Isabella Miller, was involved in the homosexual lifestyle for a short time. She is now a born-again Christian. Lisa has provided a stirring update about the August 3, 2007, Vermont court hearing to determine whether she should lose custody of her daughter to Janet Jenkins, Lisa’s former lesbian partner. Jenkins, a woman entirely unrelated to Isabella, has argued that Lisa is an unfit parent due to her Christian faith. The court has ordered that Jenkins have visitation with Isabella. The last visitation session was for an entire week.
Concerned Women for America (CWA) has also learned that Lisa’s attorneys, with Virginia-based Liberty Counsel, will have 10 minutes before the Virginia Supreme Court on August 29 at 3:00 p.m. to try to convince the court to intervene on behalf of Lisa and Isabella. Please pray that the court will enforce both Virginia’s marriage protection laws and the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and put a stop to this madness once and for all.
In Lisa Miller's own words she asks for prayer!
Please also pray for the Virginia courts to rule in our favor. As I write to you the Virginia Supreme Court has my case on their desk along with a plea to expedite hearing my case. Virginia needs to rule in favor of her laws which are for marriage between one man and one woman including not recognizing any civil unions or any contractual agreements arising out of a civil union. Virginia has ignored her laws and has allowed the importation of Vermont’s civil union law into her state. Consequently, a five year old is being held hostage.
I know God is in control. I know there is a plan and purpose for this week. I do ask that you keep Isabella in your prayers and that God's will be done in this situation. Please also keep Janet in your prayers for her salvation. Thank you for your prayers.
Joyfully Serving Christ,
