It's not unusual to read about Muslim apostates being murdered by family members for the disgrace of leaving their Islamic faith. This is a horrific practice that occurs far too often in Muslim nations while authorities do little to punish the murderers because their faith dictates that an apostate deserves death.
That being said, why is it so hard to believe that Rifqa Bary, the Ohio teen who fled from her home over a year ago, would fear that her Muslim father would kill her for becoming a Christian?
Islam truly is a cult right out of the pits of hell. How God grieves for these deceived people who show so little value for life!

"Islamic law (sharia) for converts is death. The media and cultural elites who ignore this rampant Islamic supremacism and gender apartheid are as guilty as the murderers.
Where is radical Rauf on these crimes against humanity?

Somalia (MNN) ― 'A 17-year-old girl was shot to death in Somalia for her faith in Christ, says Voice of the Martyrs, Canada.
Nurta Mohamed Farah was shot in the chest and the head by suspected family members as an "honor killing."
According to Compass Direct News, when Farah's parents found out last May that she had turned from Islam to Christianity, they offered her forgiveness if she'd denounce her new faith. When Farah refused, her parents believed her to be crazy. They gave her medication and made her sit through biweekly readings of the Q'uran, hoping that the combination would cure her "mental illness." When it was clear that Farah's heart would remain with Christ, her parents began to torture her.
Farah was reportedly shackled to a tree by day and kept in a dark room at night. Eventually the young girl was able to escape and fled to live with relatives.
This new home did not prove to be a safe haven for long. Just 200 meters from the place Farah was staying, two unidentified men shot her to death. Sources strongly suspect the men were either relatives themselves or working for them.'"
What a brave girl! Today, she is safe in the arms of her Savior, the Lord Jesus, reaping her reward for enduring persecution for Him.
