Yep, another holier-than-thou who has made a career (literally) and her living from the single-minded pursuit of stopping nice, normal, law-abiding gay couples from getting married…
First, the “straight” facts from the feds:
CONCORD, NH, November 16, 2012 — Lisa Biron, 43, of Manchester, appeared in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire today after being arrested by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation on an indictment charging her with seven counts of child exploitation, including transportation of a child for illegal sexual conduct and manufacturing and possessing child pornography, announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.
Of course, Lisa Biron is “presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt” — but we’re curious if the ADF would still want to claim a kiddie-porn suspect as one of its own. (She is, after all, a member of the ADF’s esteemed “Honor Corps” society.) We’re betting the answer is a resounding “No” — especially since it appears the ADF has already scrubbed all mentions of Biron from its various websites.
Biron was arrested without incident and appeared before United States Magistrate Judge Landya McCafferty, who ordered that Biron remain in federal custody pending her trial, which is presently scheduled for January 8, 2013.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Patrol, and the Manchester Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Helen White Fitzgibbon.
An indictment is only an allegation and not proof of criminal conduct. As in all criminal cases, each defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Now, the kicker:
Biron is associated with the Alliance Defending Freedom, a group of lawyers who, according to their website, are committed to keeping “the door open for the spread of the Gospel” by advocating for “religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family.” In Concord, she worked with the ADF in defending a Pentecostal Church on Mountain Road in its tax fight against the city.
She recently served on the board of directors at Mount Zion Christian Schools in Manchester, according to the school’s headmaster.
On Biron’s Facebook page, which was taken down in recent weeks, she had listed the Bible as her favorite book.

Biron is also a graduate of Pat Robertson‘s Regent University, where she holds (or perhaps by now held) a couple of board memberships, and is also a member of the gay-bashing Christian Legal Society and the radical right-wing Federalist Society. (Thanks, good ol’ ZoomInfo!)
Oh, and no, we really don’t give a darn what the Alliance Defense Fund is calling itself these days. A turd by any other name still stinks.
