 Father kills family for being too "western"

From the intersection of "Religion is good for humanity" Street and Anti-Woman Boulevard:

A father killed his wife and four daughters in their sleep because he could not bear them adopting a more westernised lifestyle, an inquest heard yesterday.

Mohammed Riaz, 49, found it abhorrent that his eldest daughter wanted to be a fashion designer, and that she and her sisters were likely to reject the Muslim tradition of arranged marriages.

Now I wonder how long it will be until somebody posts about how this guy doesn't really represent religion. Or that christianity is somehow different....

Why isn't Christianity different? 'Thou shall not kill' is a commandment afterall.

I think it's a kind of misconception society nowadays. Christianity isn't about bible-thumping fundaloons. Jesus, afterall, preached against the religious fundamentalists of his time, calling them hypocrites. He preached love, not murder, and critical thinking over blind faith. He was a pioneer of humanism. Too bad it's been hijacked by the so called 'religious right'.
