WorldNetDaily: Muslim stabs wife when daughter becomes Christian

Another honor killing, this time in Australia. Do not think, therefore, that honor killings are unique to Arab or East Asian lands.

The details of the case seem to show that the irate husband was injured badly himself--how, the article does not say. The police have not even decided to charge him with anything--yet.

I do have one comment about the last sentence in the article:

The Quran does instruct the faithful to kill those who leave the faith but Muslim leaders have said that is not to be taken literally.
Oh, yeah? Is that why this honor killing didn't occur? Oh, excuse me--it did occur.

Sorry, I don't buy that excuse about not taking that passage literally. If a belief system has any self consistency at all, then its writings may interpret themselves. We say that about the Holy Scriptures all the time. And the Koran (or Quran, or however you spell it) repeatedly says, "Fight" and "Kill."

The Aussies have already told Muslims in their country: Observe the customs of a pluralistic society, or get out. We need to say the same. Once again, I ask: Where is our White House Conference, or Presidential Commission, or Senate Select Committee, on Religious Ideals and their Consequences?
