Anti-Gay "Christian" lawyer arrested on child pornography charges.

Oh, this is rich.

A New Hampshire lawyer associated with an anti-gay Christian defense group was arrested on federal child pornography charges after allegedly taking a teenager to Canada where she reportedly convinced the girl to engage in sexual activity and let it be filmed.

Lisa Biron, a Manchester, N.H., lawyer associated with the Christian litigation group, Alliance Defending Freedom, was arrested by FBI agents on Friday morning on charges of transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, possession of child pornography and five counts of sexual exploitation of children, according to the Concord Monitor.

Federal prosecutors said Biron transported a teen girl from Manchester to Ontario, Canada, on May 25 and coerced her into engaging in sexual acts with another person that were then recorded, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader.

According to the Concord Monitor, prosecutor Helen Fitzgibbon made the case for Biron to be held without bond because other juveniles have been subjected to Bironís sexual activity and drug use; witnesses have testified to seeing Biron in possession of ecstasy, marijuana and cocaine; and Biron texted a friend saying she may flee to Cuba.

3. Hi DemoTex! How are things on the mountain?

This whole thing with her anti-gay "Christian" activism should tell the rightwingers something about themselves. But they surely won't get it.

5. Why the air quotes?

People who believe in a salvific divine Jesus don't stop being Christians when they are found to be doing something nasty. Such denial of their correct label is almost always made by people eager to distance themselves from the fact that their co-religionists can be evil.

Christians can, and quite often do, commit vile acts. Why deny it even by implication?

6. Because that word was part of the quote, I put it in quotes.

Just to set it off. It's not a thing. It is just indicative of the overwhelming hypocrisy that is part and parcel of every right winger.

7. But that IS a thing

By air quoting Christian, the clear implication is that you consider this person a fake or lesser Christian - otherwise it would simply be an adjective. This perpetuates the myth that we can and should expect better behavior from people who are "real" Christians, which in turn means we should consider non-Christians to be inherently less well behaved. Why did you not feel the need to "set off" other words? Why that one?

11. That Alliance Defending Freedom was founded by Focus on the Family, James Dobson

This is a big time conservative, evangelical Christian group.
