Teen Convert Flees Parents She Says Muslim Family Will Kill Her
Read that again. Is that even remotely possible? How can a devout Muslim and live with such a "shame" on the family, the awful unthinkable terrible stain of apostasy. It was members of the family's mosque who spied on Rifqa and told her father that Rifqa had converted. It was that disclosure that forced Rifqa to run to spare her own life.
Here is the AOL news account. Is it even possible that 8 years after 911 that the media, the culture, the cognoscenti could be so deliberately and undeniably clueless? Hardwired for denial.
Rifqa's lawyer should be filing for emancipation. This girl is marked. Devout Muslims or family members will wait and plot and wait until Rifqa Bary is long forgotten and then she will disappear. Rifqa Bary needs witness protection.
The AOL apologists are enough to make you puke. Photo right: mom and dad.
PARENTS WANT CONVERT TEEN BACK AOL News
Huge mistake. The Pastor should have commented. He missed a huge opportunity to speak for Rifqa and explain how perilous her situation is. Who is speaking for this girl?
The family says Rifqa was baptized a Christian without their knowledge this year in Columbus. Around the same time, the girl met Lorenz through an online Facebook prayer group.
Rifqa's 18-year-old brother, Rilvan, said the family has its own worries about her well-being.
"We don't think the safest person is the pastor she met two weeks ago on Facebook," Rilvan Bary said.
Rifqa ran away without explanation or a note. She told WFTV that she hitchhiked to the Columbus bus station, then took a bus to Orlando. Her parents dispute that and say she must have had help, because hitchhiking from her suburban home would be nearly impossible and she didn't have enough money for the trip.
Inept and embarrassing reportage.
