Apocalyptic Pastor Claims to be Protecting ex-Muslim Teenage Runaway

A blog at Christianity Today sounds a note of caution over the case of Fathima Rifqa Bary, a Sir Lankan teenager living in Ohio who recently fled to Orlando claiming that her parents planned to kill her for converting to Christianity:

“They [my parents] threatened to kill me,” Bary says tearfully in a YouTube video …posted Tuesday. She goes on to explain the logic of honor killings: “They have to kill me. My blood is now hallal, which means that because I am now a Christian, I am from a Muslim background. It’s an honor, they love God more than me. They have to do this.”
…Sgt. Jerry Cupp with the Columbus missing persons bureau disputes Bary’s claims, telling The Columbus Dispatch that Mohamed Bary has known about his daughter’s conversion for months and appears to be caring. And today, the attorney for Bary’s parents issued a statement that they have never threatened Bary: “If this case is perceived as a clash of religions, it is because Mr. Lorenz recklessly and without authorization put someone else’s child in front of television cameras to publicly renounce her previous faith,” McCarthy said in the statement. “The parents who love Rifqa are in the best position now to protect her from the mess that Mr. Lorenz has made.”

The girl gives a rather strange interpretation of what an “honour killing” is for; rather than being the remedy for a perceived dishonour suffered by a family, she tells the journalist that to kill her would be an especially ”great honour” because she is the the first Christian in her family for “150 generations” and it would show her family’s love for Allah (Lorenz concurs with a “yes” at 5:03). This seems to me to be a garbled “Christianized” understanding of the phenomenon, making it into something like a human sacrifice. Her claim that Muslim converts to Christianity in Sri Lanka (where Muslims are a minority) are confined to a mental hospital is not one that I have seen reported anywhere else.

Lorenz used to pastor the Pine Castle United Methodist Church, but he now runs the Global Revolution Church, which has no apparent links to any other church or grouping. He believes that he receives special personal messages from God about the imminent end of the world....


The girl’s parents and brother can be seen in the news report below; they do not give the impression of wanting to kill her. However, Robert Spencer – fresh from scrubbing details of the bogus “mass paedo wedding in Gaza” tale from his website - assures us that this is undoubtedly a “slow-motion honor killing“.

more BS -- no doubt financed by zionist clowns in an attempt to demonize muslims.

Robert Spencer is mobbed up with Daniel Pipes and Daniel Howowitz with his 'Jihad Watch.'

A relentless barrage of brainwashing to get Americans so filled with hate that they turn into carbon copies of Israeli's and really go on a tear on the ME and South Asia.

Plus, it's a convenient distraction from the looting of Wall Street.

when i saw this, the first thing i thought was 'a young hirshi ali escaping an arranged marriage'.

her blood is now halal? does that mean they're gonna make a rotisserie and eat her? (sic)

sure she didn't say 'not halal?' lol
is it common to refer to people as kosher to eat?

the pastor should be ashamed of himself for being a propaganda tool for zionists, which was most likely the entire point.

She has a bright future ahead of her as Mrs. Lorenzstein - being wife #17.

OMG... she's so funny, just as funny as Sara stinkerman!! Mental institute for converts? I am getting the joke finally! While Mossad converts get released quickly, other clueless converts get bitchslapped by Buddha himself and tofu pills!!
