Trouble In The ADF by Google Images w/caption by Rev Dan


Checklist for a Right Wing "Family Values" hypocrite:

Child Exploitation  
Child Pornography  
Drug Possession  
Illegal Gun Possession  

...And Promoting Child Pornography On Craigslist

But on facebook, she listed the Bible as her favorite book, so all should be forgiven, OK?

     "A New Hampshire attorney associated with an anti-gay group of 'Christian' lawyers, is facing criminal charges that she took a teenage girl to Canada and convinced her to engage in sexual activity and to let it be filmed." (source) (source2)

Defending "Family Values" gets tougher with every hypocritical scandal: Lisa Biron, a prominent attorney for the Alliance Defending Freedom (formerly the Alliance Defense Fund) was recently arrested by the FBI and charged with seven criminal counts, including child exploitation, transporting a child for illegal sexual conduct, possession of child pornography and production of child pornography. Witnesses testified that she has also been in possession of ecstasy, marijuana and cocaine. 

Guess the ADF is a bit embarrassed, huh?

Ah, but the Lisa Biron case gets even more embarrassing: she was previously charged with possession of child pornography and while waiting for trial, a gun was discovered in her apartment, prompting the judge to deny bail.* She also allegedly sent a threatening text message to one of the witnesses against her.  

Super embarrassed.  
By a super sinner...
by a super hypocrite ...and a super idiot: she advertised the child pornography on Craigslist.  

Whether or not she will be defended by the Alliance Defending Freedom remains to be seen, since she is pleading not guilty, but so far it seems as if the ADF wants to forget about her as quickly as possible: her profile and association with Alliance Defending Freedom has been expunged from its website.  

Unfortunately, the ADF couldn't expunge everything about Lisa Biron: In Concord, she worked with the ADF in defending a Pentecostal church in its tax fight against the city , and in Manchester, NH, she served on the board of directors at Mount Zion Christian Schools.

On facebook, Biron also cited her favorite book: The Bible.

Hypocrisy At It Best

Not since the outing of Pastor Ted Haggard with a male prostitute (along with his alleged possession of crystal meth) has the Christian Right suffered such a set-back in terms of demonstrating "family values." Although the year was laden with scandals and rotten rhetoric** this last jewel in the crown of hypocrisy shines brighter than most. And yet the Christian Right (let alone the Alliance Defending Freedom) has yet to respond sufficiently. The incident, like many others, is being swept under the proverbial moral rug. It may be up to the media to keep it in the public eye - a media that the Christian Right will be quick to blame as "left wing" in its dogged determination to reveal the truth: extreme hypocrisy exists within the realms of the Almighty Right.

The ADF

The hypocrisy, of course, lies in the stance that the ADF (Founded by James Dobson and Focus on the Family) has taken in the culture wars: " ...to keep the door open for the spread of the Gospel by transforming the legal system and advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family." In other words: the high moral road. As the Alliance Defense Fund, it was instrumental in litigating through the morass of appeals for California's Proposition 8 (unfortunately, doing a rather poor job on almost all counts). It was supposedly stocked with the best of Pat Robertson's Regent University School of Law. And it recently proffered advice to clerks in the sates of Maine, Maryland and Washington how to avoid issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples so as not to "violate their consciences."

After this latest situation, however, the ADF has a lot of 'splainin' to do.

It won't, of course.

*Biron was already on bail from the charge of possession of child pornography and the court stipulated that she could not from that point on be in possession of any drugs or firearms. 

** - While introducing Primary Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum, Pastor Dennis Terry tells all of the "naysaying" liberals to "get out!" of the country.
- Pastor Sean Harris told his congregation to "crack that wrist" of any four-year-old who showed homosexual tendencies.
- Pastor Charles Worley tells his congregation the country should put homosexuals behind an "electrified fence" to die off.
- Bryan Fischer warned CNN viewers that gays were the founders of the Nazi Party.
