14. First of all, "honor killings"
are NOT Islam, they are cultural, and can be found in Christian countries as well as Islamic ones. They deal with chastity rather than changing one's religion. Qur'an says that Christians are "people of the Book" and should not be persecuted. Moderate and liberal Muslims would not have a problem with what this girl did.
