The only shame this family has suffered is what her father, brother, aunt and uncle have done. How can the God of any religion condone this. Her family should hide, not only for their despicable act, but for the incompetence they displayed in doing it.

The religion founded by a pedophile not just condones, but actually instigates that, and many other things the civilized world rightfully sees as despicable.

People, this crime has absolutely nothing to do with the Islamic faith so please just try to refrain from publicly highlighting your ignorance.

Honor killings are more cultural than religious in nature. They occur all over the world but of course heavily concentrated in the ME and Asia.

Simply chalking it up to religion when that’s most certainly not the case shows a lack of knowledge and ignorance on the part of the poster who just says “the wonderful ‘religion of peace’ has done it once again’”.

I would argue that those who would kill/attack homosexuals and/or abortion clinics are motivated more by religion than those who commit honor killings.

Stupid video on youtube poking fun at Islam, that didn’t hurt anybody = Riots and outrage by Muslims around the world.

Teenaged girl gets shot by her own family and thrown in a ditch = No biggie.

But wait, I thought left-leaning political correctness says we’re all suppose to embrace ethnic diversity and accept these good people for their “rich cultural heritage”…especially when it comes to religious practices?

I think that’s a common misconception.

Christians should make every effort to reach out to sinners, no matter which sin is afflicting their brothers and sisters. It is the worldly person acting in a worldly way, when they miss this and hurt people in the name of religion.

Fail to see any “Honor” in these Honor Killings. Barbarians who need to be brought to justice and wish that Justice was the same as the crime they commit!

Honor killers have no honor. You are a disgrace to your people and humanity in general. I hope you burn in hell.

I have no qualms with Islamists being upset with the West for drone strikes that kill thousands of innocents, for war crimes that kill millions of innocents, regime changes that kill hundreds of thousands of innocents, but when people of this faith choose to act this barbarically against their own, it discredits them all. Just like Christianity, Islam has become incredibly dysfunctional and radicalized, so much so that it can excuse any crime, no matter how grave or shocking.

Religions…. ugh.

What else did you expect? They treat their women not much, if any, better than farm animals. Half the population is kept as subhumans, and it goes on ever since the invention of islam. Women are bought, sold, traded for sheep, severely beaten, and even slaughtered for the smallest disobedience. What else they could be if for generations they were born to subhumans?

Yes, quite often these forced marriages are to cousins, perpetuating generations of inbred idiots. It should also come as no surprise that these ‘people’ are considered extremely conservative.
