Judge Rules Against Arrest of Former Lesbian

A Virginia judge ruled, Tuesday, against a request to send a former lesbian to jail for keeping her daughter away from her former partner.

The American Civil Liberties Union wanted Lisa Miller-- who's now a Christian-- to be arrested for refusing to allow her 7-year-old daughter Isabella to see her former lesbian partner, Janet Jenkins in Vermont.

Miller is Isabella's biological mother and was conceived through artificial insemination while the two women were living together.

After changing her lifestyle, Miller said she did not want her daughter exposed to the homosexual lifestyle, leading to a long custody battle between the two women since 2003.   

Radio host Janet Parshal told CBN News there's more at stake in this case than just gay rights.

"We need to be praying for her on a daily bases because her precious daughter, her biological daughter Isabella doesn't want to be with Janet," she said.  "If lisa looses this case, this is not going to so much be about gay rights as it is about who can have access to our children. Who may have custody to our children."

A Vermont judge is expected to rule next month on whether Jenkins can get custody of Isabella.
