    My guess is most on this board would favor sending the girl back to Sri Lanka to be "dealt with" but I might be surprised to learn otherwise.

    Heard about this story on John Batchelor's show a couple of weeks back. It's really sad.

    And I don't think damn near anyone on this board would want to send the girl back to Sri Lanka. That's absurd.

    I don't know where you are coming from or what you are getting at, Scribe.

    To me, these alleged terror ties with this mosque aren't the issue.

    The issue is whether she is in danger from her parents after having converted to Christianity. In that case I would not make her return to her parents.

    This whole thing has smelled like bullshit from the start, a fire probably being stoked by her attorney.

    The mosque with the alleged terror ties is that which has been feeding her parents their so-called "spiritual food." They could send her to Sri Lanka, or Saudi Arabia, or Iran, or any other third-world (and with this part of the world, that's appropriate terminology) and the result would be the same. Dinner with terrorists, a couple of rape incidents and then they'd slice her to pieces. Beats waterboarding, doesn't it?

    I just saw this piece on GMA, including an interview with the girl's parents.

    The weirdest thing, to me, is that she ran off to a preacher and his wife from Florida that she met online. Maybe she's got some legitimate fears about what will happen, but I might agree with her parents that she's also being coached.

    The parents want to kill or torture her....their thoughts on being "coached" is irrelevant to me.

    That's what the girl claims.

    If you read updates on the story, the Ohio children's agency has finished thier investigation and found no wrong-doing by the parents.

    The leader of the mosque in question says he never heard of the family.

    The girls was a popular member of her school and was even a cheerleader.

    Christians can be cult-like in their recruitment efforts. That's just a fact.

    Here's one update:

    Terrorists always tell the truth. Which is why we shouldn't have tortured them.

    Except he's not a terrorist.

    Unless you're accusing the Franklin County Children Services of being terrorists.

    She's a child of terrorists and you choose to believe her?

    Once a Muslim, always a Muslim, I say.
