    That's logical, but we are dealing with the pure emotion of hatred and intolerance. We're talking right wing radical fundamentalist--the American Taliban.

    some of the time, yes. but not always. i do know very good people who just feel that gay marriage is wrong, mostly for religious reasons, but they don't hate anyone. it's these people that need to understand that no one is going to force a church to marry gays.

    Feeling that gay marriage is wrong, and mounting an out of state campaign with a ton of money is another thing.

    Folks seem to forget the separation of Church and state. Civil marriage licenses are civil not spiritual documents.

    Once again, Jenkins did not get custody. She got visitation rights. The headline in the OP is totally bogus. The discussion of why a former lesbian partner got custody is bogus, as no such custody was ever awarded. The headlines are inflammatory and totally false.

    Exactly what we could expect from WorldNetDaily.

    Sorry, I think I was unclear.

    Someone quoted me above referencing state's rights (Virginia vs Vermont) and I was clarifying that my issue was not which state it was in.

    Not sure if you missed it, but the point I addressed when I replied to you was: in many states, even if you are not the biological parent, you are the legal parent if you are married to the mother when she gives birth.

    As best I can find out, it looks like Jenkins got custody.

    VT Judge Awards Custody to Non-Biological Mom :: EDGE Boston

    ulminated in a Vermont judge ordering the former partner of a child’s biological mother to assume custody of the child. The anti-gay Christian press says that the seven-year-old child, Isabella, is a "stranger" to her new custodial parent, Janet Jenkins, and that Isabella had "violent reactions" whenever she was in Jenkins’ care due to her "lesbian lifestyle." But according to lawyer and family court expert Kurt Hughes of Burlington, Vermont, the outcome is typical of certain custodial cases in which one parent repeatedly refuses to abide by a court-ordered custody arrangement.

    "Even though it’s hit the headlines because this happens to be a same-sex couple, this is a very basic family law that we’re talking about," Hughes told local news station WCAX, which reported on the case in a Nov. 23 article.

    "There’s something called parental alienation syndrome, in which one parent is constantly bad mouthing the other parent," Hughes explained. "And so the courts over the years have decided that the potential long term psychological impact to a child from that type of behavior is much greater than the temporary disruption that would result from a child changing households from one parent to the other." The biological mother, Lisa Miller, has been ordered to relinquish custody of daughter Isabella to Jenkins by the start of the new year. Miller will retain visitation rights. If she does not comply, she may end up in prison.

    I have to ask again: on what grounds did she get custody?
