A week or so ago I blogged about a missing Muslim girl who converted to Christianity. I wrote: Atlas Shrugs: Fathima Rifqa Bary: I hope she got away.
Police had been looking for information about Rifqa, a central Ohio teenager who vanished nearly three weeks ago.
The teenager's has been turned off and her Facebook account deactivated, Kocot reported.
According to police, the girl's friends told detectives that it was possible she ran away because of conflicting religious beliefs in her home.
She's alive! And in court in a custody battle that could send the girl to her death. I pray they have experts who know about honor killings testify. Family members who have lost their relatives to honor killings (for less) should be giving testimony. Amina and Sarah Said's aunt Gail Gartrell should speak; Robert Spencer should speak; Phyllis Chesler and friends of Aqsa Parvez should speak.
She made it. I am so happy I could cry. The West should do everything in its power to save this girl's life.
This girl's life hangs in the balance.
The headline was written by a dhimmi - Christianity is clashing with no one. Islam, OTOH, will sentence this girl to death for apostasy.
ORLANDO - An Ohio runaway teenager, Christianity and the Muslim religion met head-on Monday during a custody dispute in an Orlando courtroom.
The girl, 17-year-old Rifqa Bary, recently converted from her family's faith to Christianity and she is worried about her family's reaction to her change in faith.
The teen had been staying with Beverly Lorenz and her husband, pastors of the newly launched Global Revolution Church in Orlando. Bary is now in the custody of the Department of Children And Families.
Lorenz said the teen hitchhiked to a Greyhound station in Ohio, and then took a bus to Orlando.
The girl asked Lorenz if she could come to her house. Even though she barely knew the girl, Lorenz said it was OK.
The teen, a non-citizen, told Lorenz she was fearful that her father would send her to Sri Lanka.
After the girl arrived in Orlando, Lorenz said they called an abuse hotline and started calling lawyers, asking what they should do.
Another hearing is scheduled on Friday. However, DCF officials say it a matter to be decided by Ohio authorities
I think as many good folks as possible should contact the court. Try and track down the info and I'll post. This girl must be saved.
She'll also need witness protection of the trial.
Her day in court today.
