Lawyer with Anti-Gay Christian Litigation Group 'Alliance Defense Fund' Arrested by FBI on Child Porn Charges

Lisa Biron, a Manchester, New Hampshire lawyer associated with Alliance Defending Freedom (better and formerly known as the Alliance Defense Fund, an anti-gay Christian law group) was arrested Friday morning on child pornography charges, the Concord Monitor reports:

BironA Manchester lawyer took a teenage girl to Canada, had her engage in sexual activity and convinced her to let it be filmed, according to federal indictments.

FBI agents swiftly arrested Lisa Biron yesterday morning as she awaited a hearing on child pornography charges at Manchester’s district court. About 9 a.m. FBI agents entered the courtroom, told Biron to leave her belongings and took her into an adjoining conference room where she remained for several minutes before coming out in handcuffs.

Agents also found 200 rounds of ammunition in Biron's home.

The paper adds:

In making her case that Biron should be held, Fitzgibbon also made the following allegations: Two witnesses have testified to seeing Biron in possession of ecstasy, marijuana and cocaine; Biron sent a threatening text message to the person who turned her in to the police, advising him he would have to watch his back “FOR EVER."; Biron sent a text to a friend saying she might flee to Cuba because she had “nothing left.”; Biron has asked people to lie to law enforcement about her case; Other juveniles have been subjected to Biron’s sexual activity and drug use.

And finally:

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.

  1. There are two kinds of anti-gay "Christian" crusaders -- the ones who have been caught and the ones who haven't been caught (yet.)

  2. Another sexual repressed freak strikes again...These people are not worthy of my spit. This closet lesbian probably justified what she did in her mind, because after all she never touched the teenager, just got off on watching her getting off...These people need medication, the Bible is a sure fire road to insanity.

  4. How many more examples of this type of rampant hypocrisy does the planet need to find out about before the idiotic religious right conservative zealots finally figure out that their "leaders" are the REAL PERVERTS?

    Oh, maybe they already know and don't care.

  6. After the local PD arrested her, Biron did bail out. She then posted yet another online ad to solicit children after the judge specifically ordered her to not access the internet except for work.

    It was during the court hearing in re; her first arrest that the FBI arrived to arrest her for transporting a child across state lines for sexual assault & producing child porn on that trip to Canada.

    Due to her refusing to follow the judge's orders upon her release, threatening witnesses, texting she's going to flee the area & attempting to lure yet more children... she is now held without bail.

  7. How unusual is it for this type of hypocrite to be a woman, huh? Seriously, I can't think of the last right wing scandal involving a sexually aggressive woman. Just interesting...

  8. 'Tis season for sharing:

    Young Republican Ex-Gay youth minister ordered sexual assaults & murder of his wife: "Bethany was sexually assaulted over a period of months while drugged with someone else’s prescription anti-psychotic, witnesses in the house told authorities. This was happening, the witnesses alleged, in a period of time that male members in the house were involved in sexual relationships with Deaton, one saying it was part of a “religious experience.”

  10. You can't make this stuff up. Truth IS stranger that fiction. If a novelist included a storyline like this, everyone would say it was unbelievable.

  11. Another great and accurate study what organized religion does to one's sense of entitlement.

  12. conservativebabylon.com has more:

    Lisa Biron, graduate of bible thumping Pat Robertson’s Regent Univ, holds bigot board memberships, and is also a member of the gay-bashing Christian Legal Society and the radical right-wing Federalist Society...was arrested for PRODUCING child porn and sexual assault of minor children. Biron is associated with rabid bigots: Alliance Defending Freedom, lawyers who 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.”

  13. First, let's point out that this person has only been arrested. Not indicted; not convicted. All statements in the article about why she was arrested are allegations, not facts. Second, let's note that she seems to be a member of two groups we like to hate: christian and anti-gay (some of us might include the third group, lawyers;->). Third, let's acknowledge the fact that, if we claim unalterable nature as a "reason" for being gay, we must acknowledge the same for people attracted to children. (Yes: I know and agree that sex between consenting adults is different from sexual exploitation by those who harm others in pursuit of their intimacy or control needs.) "Human nature" includes exploiters, too; while I'm not religious, I think it's important to recall that, save for a fluke of genetic endowment, any one of us could find ourselves in Biron's shoes. I'm asking a bit of unbiased compassion for another human driven by needs not unlike those that drive ourselves.

  14. Really Chuck? Any one of us could be in her shoes for producing child porn & advertising for kids online to take to Canada to film her rape? "Any one of us" !!!?!!!

    Any one of us made succinct choices not be be like her...victimizing people in both her private & public life . . . and we chose not to be like her rabid bigot ilk. Hate to think what your life is behind closed doors. Sheesh!

  15. The truth always comes out and in this case it is the anti-gay Christians who are the real pedophiles who rape and abuse children, time and again it is the Catholic Priest who are pedophiles and then the Boy Scouts who are anti-gay Christians who are pedophiles and now this anti-gay Christian fanatic who also is a pedophile, the FBI has her on video having sex with a child.

  16. @Chuck: You seriously believe that child molestation is "not unlike" gayness? Dear me, I think I smell a right-wing Christian troll.

    And you also seriously believe that child molesters, if their sexuality is genetically determined, as you claim, should get a complete pass for tearing down other people's sexuality? If this woman's sexual behavior is in fact genetically determined and unalterable, she ought to be MORE compassionate and understanding about gay people's sexuality, not less.

    Are you by any chance a priest?

  17. Regression pedophilia in a self-hating, closeted, fundamentalist homosexual?

    Posted by: Frank | Nov 19, 2012 11:26:34 AM


  18. Chuck,

    Your first point is valid. Perhaps we all should have begun by saying "If these allegations prove to be true..."

    Regarding your second point, I think it would be more accurate to say that most people (not just LGBT folks) hate hypocrites--people who excoriate certain behavior, while engaging in it themselves.

    On your third point, while social scientists are in general agreement that sexual orientation is "unalterable nature," as you put it, I am not aware of the same claim being made for people who are attracted to children. However, even if that is the case, it does not, imho, excuse the behavior that Lisa Biron is alleged to have engaged in.

  19. It's long been believed by mental health experts and law enforcement that you can't "cure" pedophilia. The recidivism rate is astronomical. So in that way, pedophilia IS a "sexual orientation."

    We as a society have (rightly) established age of consent laws, drawing a line before which sexual contact is a crime, where consent cannot be given. There may be some debate over exactly WHERE that line should be drawn (age of consent varies by locale) but it's unanimous that there should be one.

    But all that aside, porn is made for personal gain (money), not personal pleasure. She did this for greed.

    Her hypocrisy is galling for sure, but without know the actual age of the "teenage girl" it's hard to know just how bad it is. They might be treated the same way by the law, but whether she was 13 or 17 makes a big difference.

  20. These 'people' who have a problem with the sexuality of others remind me of animals who attack their own reflection in a mirror. But the animals do it because they don't understand reflections; the humans --- because they do.

  22. It happens so often that homophobic preachers and anti-gay activists are sexually twisted humann beings, that it is hardly news anymore.

    Posted by: andrew | Nov 19, 2012 12:49:32 PM


  23. What a effed up chick. Why isn't she being prosecuted by the Canadians if the crime was committed in Canada? I don't know what the age of consent between a grown adult and a teenager in Canada are, maybe it wasn't a crime there. In the U.S. the age of consent for NH is I think 16, but there can't be more than a 2 year age difference. Otherwise, it's 18 to be considered consenting adults.

  24. How many cases did she win?

    Posted by: JJ | Nov 19, 2012 3:21:47 PM


  25. Age of consent in Canada is 16 across the board. The problem is the pornography charge for which you still have to be 18, regardless of consent laws.

    Not a peep so far from our main news networks about this. If this is already being handled by the FBI, I doubt Canadian law and immigration will have much to do with it unless it becomes obvious that this is more widespread.
