Honour killing: Christian Couple who converted to Islam ‘killed by family’

At first glance I thought they had the headline wrong. 

This is a tragic switch, isn’t it…

LAHORE: A Christian couple, who recently married of their own will and converted to Islam, was gunned down by family members in South Punjab in yet another case of honour killing. The incident took place in a Christian colony in Kalore Kot, a small town in Bhaker distinct late Thursday night.  more here

  1. I had your same reaction misreading the headline.

    It’s a damn shame.

    • Cal, i actually had to read it twice! Thought for sure i’d misread it.

      After realizing i hadn’t misread it, i wondered how many (Christian) news sites would report the story. Though i’ve not looked around to check yet, i’d be willing to wager not many, if any. We (the Church) have a bad habit of ignoring (or even covering up) stories like this.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
