17 year old Rifqa Bary ran away from her family in Ohio in fear for her life:

Rifqa Bary pleaded with a DCF case worker to let her stay with Pastor Blake Lorenz from the Global Revolution Church. The 17-year-old girl from Ohio claims her father has threatened to kill her because she has converted to Christianity and rejected her family’s Muslim faith.

“They have to kill me, because I’m a Christian, it’s an honor. If they love me more than God then they have to kill me,” she said.

Her father has gone to Florida to try to get custody back:

Mohamed Bary came to Florida to try and bring his daughter back home and denied the allegations.

“Did you threaten to kill your daughter because she converted to Christianity?” Nguyen asked.

“No, no,” responded Mohamed Bary.

However, Rifqa Bary insists that’s not the case.

“This is not just threats this is reality. This is truth,” she said.

In one year of course this will all be moot when she turns 18. But I can’t see where she would get such a crazy idea about Islam.
