There’s an old saying,
“If you’re going to pray for rain, bring an umbrella.”
(See details about the rally here)
it’s time to start believing that there will be an eventual positive outcome from all these legal proceedings and she will be emancipated from her parents.
So with that in mind what should she do then?

For starters Rifqa could change her name from a Muslim one to one that comes from the bible like Rachel or Paula.
I like Paula because after all this young lady has one of the most dramatic conversion stories since Saul the Pharisee had his vision on the road to Damascus. So powerful was the impact of this vision that eventually Saul changed his name to Paul and became the great apostle to the Gentiles. His influence may have shaped the very course of Western Civilization itself.
But once “Paula” is emancipated I pray that the Christian Media will give her some space. Maybe she’ll return to Florida and vanish from the limelight for a while. That would be the best thing I believe for “Paula”.
Give it a year or so. Then she can appear on “Greta” “Oprah” and yes, even the 700 club!

It was hard to watch O’reilly last night. The real interesting story was on the news crawler at the bottom of the screen.
That’s where Fox relegated the possible precedent setting custody case involving 17 year old Rifqa Bary. She’s the girl who feared for her life at the hands of her Muslim family after she converted to Christianity.
If all you had to go by was the tiny attention Fox gave this story, you’d think young Miss Bary was flying back to Ohio at this very moment.
The real story here is the thread of hope the judge gave at the last minute!
Rifqa won’t be going back to Ohio until her parents can produce the proper papers proving they are in this country legally. Up until now they’ve been dragging their feet on this even risking contempt of court charges.
But who needs FNC anyway?! This is the 21st Century! This is the blogging age! We have super blogger Pamela Geller live blogging the case as best as she can, courtroom restrictions and all.
For those who still think Fox is really an arm of the Republican Party or is at the hands of a group of Christian conservative zealots, this is all the proof they need to the contrary.
Fox News is a for profit enterprise whose main agenda is to MAKE MONEY! This is not a criticism, it’s just a fact. Unlike the not for profit liberal enterprises like NPR, PBS and MSNBC, Fox goes with what sells. That would be center right news coverage spiced up with some good old sexy gossip.
So even though the Rifqa Bary custody case could very well be yet another sign of the Islamization of the West. Or worse yet it it could be the real introduction of Sharia law into the USA. That doesn’t matter, Fox goes with what sells.

There’s a young lady who is in danger of losing her life because of her faith. That’s not supposed to happen here in America. This country was founded mainly as a refuge for religious freedom. And yet if the court finds that she is not in danger she will have to be returned to her parents who she believes will have her killed.
These are not the rantings of a melodramatic rebellious teen they are the pleas of someone who fears for her very life.
NOT IN MY AMERICA!
