Who is Rifqa Bary?

Brothers and sisters,

I know that some of you would like more information on the Christian convert I mentioned today in my sermon. She has become somewhat of a lightening-rod figure, a little like Terri Shiavo. If you Google her name, the majority of sites are people denouncing her "brainwashing" (what they call Christian conversion) and the "right wingers" defending her (people from James Dobson to anti-jihadist Jewess Pamela Geller). Here is a link to a site run by friends of Rifqa. If you start at the bottom you can read just about everything there is to know about this situation. The Rifqa Bary news blog.
