A New Hampshire lawyer who works with a virulently anti-gay Christian-right organization has been found guilty of child pornography charges after videotaping her own daughter having sex with two men on multiple occasions.

Lisa Biron, 43, of Manchester faces a minimum sentence of 25 years in prison after a jury convicted her yesterday. The jury deliberated for less than an hour.

Biron, arrested by the FBI last November, was accused of eight felony counts involving the videotaping of men having sex with a 14-year-old girl who was identified by the Associated Press as her daughter. She also allegedly made a cellphone video of herself having sex with her daughter.

My personal hero, Bill Hicks once said of late, not-great, racist North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms, "Anyone that far to the right is hiding a very deep, dark secret . . ." Ol' Bill was right about a hell of a lot of things, but this disturbing story is just more proof that he was EXTREMELY CORRECT on that score.

I mean Jesus! Your own daughter? I've known some pretty freaky deakies in my day, but this is just beyond the pale. I don't even think my pervy friends would JOKE about this, because it isn't funny.

The tragedy here is that this woman was apparently so uncomfortable with her own sexuality that she had to victimize her daughter, and then turn all the rage she internally directed at herself against innocent gay people. It's pretty clear that there are a LOT of cases where anti-gay bigotry has its roots in self-loathing. There are millions of Americans' whose hatred of "teh gay" is not so different from this woman, Lisa Biron's. Is it any wonder a story like this . . . albeit rarely to quite this level of disgusting . . . comes out like every month or so?

The rage of anti-gay bigots seems to stem from a hatred of themselves pretty often. We need a society that recognizes that homosexuality is a normal and healthy expression of human sexuality. Otherwise, we get this.
