Will another “honor” killing take place here?

August 21, 2009

According to the United Nations (no bastion of conservatism), around 5,000 “honor” killings occur around the world annually.  These are murders done against family who, it is felt by the killer(s), have dishonored the family name in some way, often by converting from the religion of one’s forefathers to another.

Such a case is playing out between Ohio and Florida in the case of a 17-year-old young lady.  The latest is reported in the first link from Fox News.  In the second link, an editorial about the case and about these types of murders is offered.  I commend them both to you and ask that we all pray for the young woman from Ohio whose fate is in the hands of a Florida judge as I write.,2933,541205,00.html
