The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer took to Twitter to spew more hate by advocating for an Underground Railroad to “deliver innocent children from same-sex households.” Fischer is of course referencing to a trial that is currently underway where a pastor faces criminal charges of being an accomplice to a kidnapping. Kenneth L. Miller, the leader of a Beachy Amish Mennonite church in Stuarts Draft, Virginia, stands accused of helping spirit Lisa Miller and her daughter to Nicaragua. Miller fled the country rather than surrender custody of her daughter with Janet Jenkins, a woman she had shared a civil union partnership with in Vermont before undergoing a evangelical Christian conversion.
