Honor killing

Interestingly the rapture ready crowd (and other's I'm sure) are viewing the beheading as an "honor killing" only, not as a domestic violence matter. As though if it is an honor killing it is different from when a Christian man kills his wife.


  1. i noticed that. pretty much everyone is regarding this as an "honor killing", as if that is somehow different from domestic violence as a whole. sure, he beheaded her, which isn't exactly standard for Westerners, but it still boils down to the same thing.

  2. I think it's an easy way of distancing themselves from the fact that this happens everywhere. We tend to keep domestic violence locked away until it comes out like this.
