Matt Barber’s Anti-Gay Liberty Counsel Connected To Kidnapping Of Nine Year Old Child Lisa Miller

 In 2009  “ex-gay” mother Lisa Miller vanished with her daughter in 2009 after courts awarded custody of the child to Janet Jenkins, her former partner. Miller had been legally assisted by Matt Barber’s anti-gay Liberty Counsel at the time and when Miller failed to surrender Isabella Jenkins-Miller disappeared with the child police issued a warrant for parental kidnapping.

On April 18th   the FBI arrested Timothy David Miller in Alexandria on charges that he aided in the international parental kidnapping of Isabella Miller-Jenkins

According to the FBI affidavit, the ”Lynchburg Christian Academy Payroll Account” provided ”multiple payroll checks to Lisa Miller.” The Academy is an affiliate of the late Jerry Falwell’s Thomas Road Baptist Church which Matt Barber’s Liberty Counsel is also affiliated with by way of Falwell’s Liberty University

FBI documents indicate agents believe Lisa Miller was going by the name Sarah, and that her daughter was being referred to as Lydia.

Last year Jenkins’s attorney, Sarah Star, received a phone call from an unnamed individual who said that Miller and her daughter were staying at a vacation rental house in Nicaragua owned by Philip Zodhiates, who was described by the caller as a “Liberty leader,” Kaegel said.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Zodhiates heads the Christian direct-mail firm Response Unlimited. His daughter, Victoria Hyden, is Liberty Counsel president Mat Staver’s administrative assistant and was asked by her father to “to get Lisa Miller supplies.”

Right Wing Watch has also confirmed that the FBI affidavit reveals that Lisa Miller and her daughter have been living in a Nicaragua house owned by the Zodhaiates and that Miller’s Liberty Counsel attorney  Rena M. Lindevaldsen is also named in the FBI’s affidavit.

Upon the news of the FBI’s arrest of Timothy David Miller  Victoria Hyden’s bio was taken down from the Liberty website

The Christian Mafia.

No stone should be left unturned in cracking this criminal conspiracy wide open, and leave no law unexamined in charging absolutely everyone who is responsible and the Liberty Council for covering this up.

My heart breaks for that poor little girl and my blood boils at these Christomaniac lunatics who think they are above the law and can do whatever they please.
