    Default Girl Says Family Wants To Kill Her For Being Christian

    from www.wftv.com:

    [i]ORLANDO, Fla. -- An Ohio girl ran away to Orlando because she said her family threatened to kill her for converting to Christianity. Rifqa Bary, 17, said she was threatened by her family because she converted from Islam to Christianity.

    "What did your father say to you?" WFTV reporter Mary Nguyen asked.

    "He said he would kill me!" replied Bary.

    Bary was in Orange County's juvenile justice center because her parents want to regain custody of her. She had been staying with a local Christian pastor's family.

    Bary said she came to the pastor's home for safety. But now a judge has ruled she will stay in the custody of the Department of Children and Families (DCF).

    DCF says Bary will stay in foster care until investigators can figure out if her life is in danger.

    "I don't want to see my father," Bary said.

    Rifqa Bary pleaded with a DCF case worker to let her stay with Pastor Blake Lorenz from the Global Revolution Church. The 17-year-old girl from Ohio claims her father has threatened to kill her because she has converted to Christianity and rejected her family's Muslim faith.

    "They have to kill me, because I'm a Christian, it's an honor. If they love me more than God then they have to kill me," she said.

    Rifqa Bary said she needed to get away from her family. So she hitched-hiked then got on a bus to Orlando.

    She had befriended the Orlando church on Facebook and ended up at the pastor's home. Lorenz called the state to investigate and a judge ruled Monday that Florida will take emergency jurisdiction until the courts can confirm Ohio will take over the case and investigate it.

    "There are too many conflicting things that are going on with this child and it needs to be investigated thoroughly. That is our position, the child should be returned to Ohio," said DCf attorney Karelene Cole-Palmer.

    Mohamed Bary came to Florida to try and bring his daughter back home and denied the allegations.

    "Did you threaten to kill your daughter because she converted to Christianity?" Nguyen asked.

    "No, no," responded Mohamed Bary.

    However, Rifqa Bary insists that's not the case.

    "This is not just threats this is reality. This is truth," she said.

    The 17-year-old's family is from Sri Lanka and came to the United States when she was about 8 or 9 years old. A status hearing is set for next Friday.

    There are two possibilities in play here:
    1. This is simply a screwed up kid that wants to get away from some trifling family-life problems or
    2. Her life really is in danger.

    The court can put her in a juvenile facility for what, a few months until she's 18? Or, the kid can be returned to her parents. And there is a 50/50 chance that she'll either run away again or will be found stoned to death by her relatives. Perhaps she should be allowed to stay with the pastor's family until such a time that she can get her life together.

    Maybe he can be allowed out of his cage for one last hurrah.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    Did he get booted again? Maybe before I ramp up for my next anti-religion screed in this thread, I can try and track him down for moral support.

    If it is number one, I knew plenty of teenage girls that were in that very same boat when I was a teenager...what a boatload of shit those poor girls were out through at home due to parents/relatives meddling in the most trivial of things.

    Don't know if this is still common or not, but it seemed like a lot of divorced moms (usually sisters or other relation) would move two seperate families into one home back in my old neighborhood. Naturally, one or the other mom would generally have more 'control' of the household and that mother's children would get preferential treatment. Saw it happen many times back in the day, and the children of the other mother usually had a less than great home experience.
