British imam's daughter under police protection after converting to Christianity

A British imam's daughter is living in fear of her life under police protection after she received death threats from her family for converting to Christianity.

The young woman, aged 32, whose father is a Muslim imam in the north of England, has moved house 45 times to escape detection by her family since she became a Christian 15 years ago.

hello,
you know one reason I like to read your blog is even if I don't comment anything intelligent your posts often lead me to digging and searching.
One thing I have learned from life is very few people want to know the truth, as below points out with the statistics... (read the piece on "PP" about "the new blacks" :S.
the numbers broken down into individual crimes makes it even more of a ridiculous statement, at least here in the states.
This topic about the girl made me wonder .... what other lies are we being feed...

this is just one link. I've long known of the growing christian conversions in Iran. I'm sure education is to blame for the spreading of "western ideas" and american imperialism ... something the blessings of technology -mostly the internet- will not be able to stop.
you know in the koran it states the earth will stop turn around and go backwrads for a day.... I have seen on Islamic sites people calling themselves scholars trying to prove this with medieval science? and mars in retrogade as proof. Who'd have thought that my dabbling in astrology would come in handy someday.

A big thankyou to tu s.tin. You are my no.1 (and only one!) reader!

Yes I saw that at PP about the 'new blacks'. Patently ridiculous when you look at the statistics!

Thanks for the link to the Faith Freedom article.

What?!! No, I didn't know that! How hilarious, and somewhat depressing that people not only believe this stuff but openly justify it with science a 5 year old would be ashamed of.

A very big thankyou back ... :)
One and only reader?....
Every one always copies off me! so it's sad to know one day they will catch on and you'll forget allllllllll about me :(
Oh well, saw a quote recently...something like " A true leader inspires OTHERS to greatness"
Since your blog is my one and only favorite!!...maybe that would inspire you to take pity on me and make more posts for me to read!!

I know I get made fun of for how my brain and vision works .... but I get just as confussed sometimes by the sheeple mentality. Another story in the news was of a muslim teen girl in Canada killed by her father (sure you saw it)....
All everyone seemed to notice was the crime, not that the girl was willing to make a stand, as are millions of youth all around the world. Some focus needs to be put on them not as vitims but as heros of the future.
Maybe now you have inspired me to make a post...

anyway about religion. I AM a christian and will be till the day I die, my beliefs come from much study and hard work ..... One thing I have against anyone following any system is that much is not to be taken literal. I'ts a science "metaphyics"
So when the Koran says the sun will rise from the west...it's symbolic!!
at the same time you have christians waiting for water to turn to blood... etc...
The answer to all this bullshit is education. Not war!
not yet....
