How can Santorum lose with all of these prayers going for him?

Trailer for a new documentary: Kidnapped for Christ.

"Just as the title suggests, this won't be an easy watch, as the story centres on a group of gay American teenagers who were sent away by their Evangelical parents to an American-run Evangelical Christian reform school in the Dominican Republic.

Depicted in one of the teenager's accounts–as told from the grounds of the reform school–is a chilling portrait of what appears to be nothing short of brutal kidnapping: "One morning I woke up–two guys were at my house... both my parents were standing there saying, 'We love you, David, we love you.' They tied a belt around my waist–dragged me with the belt to their car... I got sent down here because I'm gay and my parents just weren't okay with that."

Moroccan girl commits suicide after being forced to marry her rapist
Wednesday, 14 March 2012

By AL ARABIYA

A 16-year-old Moroccan girl has committed suicide after a judge ordered her to marry her rapist, according to Moroccan media reports.

Last year Amina’s parents filed charges against their daughter’s rapist, a man 10 years older than her but it was only recently that a judge in the northern city of Tangier decided that instead of punishing him, the two must be married.

The court’s decision to forcibly marry Amina to her rapist was supposed to “resolve” the damage of sexual violation against her, but it led to more suffering in the unwelcoming home of her rapist/husband’s family.

Traumatized by the painful experience of rape, Amina decided to end her life by consuming rat poison in the house of her husband’s family, according to the Moroccan daily al-Massae.

According to the newspaper, this type of forced marriage is rooted in local rural traditions to safeguard the honor of girls who are raped.

Moroccan penal code exempts a rapist from punishment if he agrees to marry his victim.

Feminists have long demanded an amendment to this article.

Hafida Elbaz, director of the Women’s Solidarity Association told a-Massae that the article provides an opportunity for a perpetrator to avoid punishment."

Why have your own deity when you can cobble one together from other people's deities?
