They have an Old Testiment, New Testiment and (this is the brilliant part) a Final Testiment. (no Penultiment there!!!) Levidicus (an outmoded patriarchal piece of doodoo in my humble opinion) which is common to all 3, makes it clear - If you change religions you are damned!!!. Now, this includes changing between one "one god" type of religion to another. Your parents, or others who care about you, are doing you a favour by stoning you to death if you reject whichever true faith they subscribe to.

That still does not mean that every Muslim will automatically put their children to death if they lose their "honour".

Every religion has its spectrum of fundamentalism.

There are Roman Catholics in Latin America who would probably disown or even kill their children for converting to Islam.

The New Testament renders Leviticus redundant.

For adults like us, there is no better criterion for when to go to bed, than "what do I have to do six hours from now?" Or four, or eight ... depending on the individual. Six hours does it for most people. More like eight hours for the long-term, but six will see you right for the next day and night.

I've been having an average of twelve hours recently. That could be why I'm not tired.

In fact, the girl has been taken into custody of the state.

Don't trust the parents, don't trust the "refuge family." I'm OK with that, and she'll learn a lot (and probably have a lot of fun) in a teenage refuge.

This isn't the sort of situation which calls for foster parents. The kid is very nearly a legal adult: soon she can legally choose for herself where to live and who to consort with. She should be put in a refuge, with other teens and young adults who are "between homes." Hopefully, she'll meet up with others in a similar place in life, and co-operate with them to get a nice wacky share-house.

Throwing her to the concocted family of a church-group is not a good option. If she is danger from her father (an unsubstantiated claim, as I see it) then the time has come for her to move out of home. NOT to a cult. NOT under circumstances where she perceives her only other option to death, to be living with her Facebook saviour. It's time she moved to a children's, teen's, or women's shelter.

This is a huge example of the things a welfare state can offer, to vulnerable people. A well-funded welfare department (dedicated to the welfare of citizens and residents, ie relief from suffering; access to opportunity; a fair go!) is exactly the third-party which is needed here.

The girl's choices are not between death at the hands of her father, and an unknown fate "on the rebound" with some people she met on Facebook.

There is a third option. Welfare. Bring it on.

As a Christian myself she most definatly has a right to convert. As an American more so even because of religious rights. No one should be threatened with death because of their religion. I would strongly urge caution on the part of authorities concerning her parents. Death threats are common with converts from Islam and I would be very careful before putting her back in parental custody.Natoine

As the agnostic child of an ex-Catholic now Deist mother and a Muslim Father, I have to say those parents are tripping balls. Honor killing aren't a part of Islam, though the murder of apostates is part of very conservative understandings of Shariah. There are plenty of authorities that would argue that it is not applicable in any real life circumstance, especially outside of a Shariah state.

I say again: Tripping balls.

There is very little evidence that they were going to perform an honour killing, beyond the testimony of their daughter - who was recently indoctrinated into a Christian cult - and "Well, they're Muslims, so it must be true!"

Looking up a few more news stories, it seem rather hard to tell who is the party acting out. Could be either side. Some people are definitely thinking "Well, they're Muslims, so it must be true!" (see Megyn Kelly on FoxNews), but I wouldn't necessarily say the Global Revolution Church are nuts either.

This looks like it will get worse before it gets better.

It's time to abandon scientific progress and only look towards the Lord Jesus Christ (who is white of course) for guidance in all matters!

I'm not a radical Christian. I understand there's always the extreme end of the spectrum with religion, but I don't know of many (or any) Christians who kill their kids for converting to honor God.

It's a serious issue, the circumstances just happen to paint the Christian girl as the innocent one. I'd react the same way if it was the other way around.
