Lesbian turned ex-gay turned renegade parent, Lisa Miller, has reportedly spirited her daughter, Isabella, to Central America in an attempt to avoid turning over the child to her former partner, Janet Jenkins. The two conceived the child while they were civil union-ed and before Miller was manipulated into thinking she was ex-gay by the religious right.

The girl, Isabella Miller-Jenkins, and her birth mother, Lisa Miller, failed to appear for a court-ordered custody swap in January and are believed to have flown to El Salvador last September, said attorney Sarah Star, who represents ex-partner Janet Jenkins.

Star said a Virginia police officer told her that Miller and the girl flew to El Salvador's capital, San Salvador, from Juarez, Mexico, which is across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas.

"This is obviously horrifying," Star said Thursday. "Isabella's not in school. She's most likely in a country that is not as developed as the U.S., and (Jenkins is) worried about her. She's worried she's not in a safe environment. As far as we know, Lisa Miller doesn't even speak Spanish."

The only thing we can do is worry that Isabella is safe and continue to dismantle the duplicitous ex-gay money machine.

And now El Salvador is stuck with an extra ex-gay fanatic. I'm sure they're happy.
