Four men shot dead their sister and her husband for bringing “shame” to the family.

A Yemeni woman, in her twenties, paid a heavy price for eloping from her family’s house and marrying her beloved. Police in the southern port city of Aden said on Tuesday that four men shot dead their sister and her husband, 30, to erase shame brought to their family when she ran away from home with the man.

Really, it’s not like this stuff doesn’t happen here too and by people other than Muslims.

Don’t want any Christian prayers in school, or backward traditions like straight marriage ....

But THIS is the culture and religion the liberals love and glorify.

Surprise! Shame NOT erased. Instead, they brought worldwide attention to their dysfunctional culture.

Nope, Amish brothers will cut off their sister's beard if she elopes.

Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz have finally found a religion they want to see scale the “wall of separation”.

Any liberal attack on Christians for their beliefs should be met with “How do you feel about islamic values on gay marriage ,abortion, women’s rights & honor killings?”.

Please don’t forget religious intolerance, mandatory mosque attendance, anti semitism, press censorship, (non) separation of church and state, rape, to name a few more.

Look, dead innocents are what I’m talking about. Just heard on the Indianapolis TV news yesterday that someone murdered a woman and her two children. Don’t blame an entire group of people for the evil deeds of some members of that group. You’re Talibanning yourself.

media ignores the facts about islam because they’re afraid they’re going to experience the religio of peace firsthand.

Oh I don’t think I am. The sheer frequency of the muslim raping and/or killing their own children or others is far more than an occasional killing.
You’re not even making sense.

Mandatory prayer five times a day has to radicalize at least a small number of the faith.

You’re using a construct whose proper application is for someone doing things against the teachings of the group, but these Yemeni yahoo’s were in fact carrying out exactly what their religious authorities teach day-in-day-out. FAIL!

They had to refund the bride-price to the husband she was promised to. In Islam, the groom is supposed to furnish a bride price (mahr). The contract may be made years in advance. If the marriage is not consummated, the groom is due a refund.

Then why were they arrested and charged with a crime?

Ok, I read the original article and it seems they haven’t been arrested, but the police are seeking them because they are described as being at large.

Since murder is still a crime in Yemen, the religious authorities will yet be called upon to make a determination whether their brothers’ sororicide was justifiable. I believe their punishment will ultimately be horrendously minimal.
