Christian runaway safe from Muslim family...for now

Chad Groening - OneNewsNow -
The head of a ministry dedicated to helping former Muslims is welcoming the news that a Florida judge has ruled that a 17-year-old Christian girl can remain in Florida and not have to return to her Islamic family in Ohio. But she also believes the fight isn't over yet.

An Orlando judge ruled Friday that 17-year-old Rifqa Bary can stay under protective custody in Florida as authorities there launch an investigation into her family and the Muslim community in Ohio where she lives. The teenager ran away last month because she believed her family would kill her for converting to Christianity. The girl's family members, who originally are from Sri Lanka, say they have never threatened to harm her.
