Lock 'em up and throw away the key!

There is no honour in killing a child to save the family name. How evil! These stories keep popping up in the news, and there is even one or two from the city in which I live. It is impossible to figure out the mindset of those who believe they are keeping the family honour intact by mercilessly killing their female daughters and sisters.

How can they not expect their children to be influenced by Western society when they come to our country and their children attend our public schools? Perhaps one of the screening questions for immigrants should be, "Do you believe honour killings are a good way to keep your family honour when you feel as thought your daughters have disgraced you?"

A lifetime in jail is too short for these murderers . Lock 'em up and throw away the key!

What is it about the Eastern religions that makes men see women as expendable commodities? The pride and arrogance of their beliefs is unbearable to our Christian way of thinking.
