KINGSTON, Ontario - A jury on Sunday found an Afghan father, his wife and their son guilty of killing three teenage sisters and a co-wife in what the judge described as "cold-blooded, shameful murders" resulting from a "twisted concept of honor."
The jury took 15 hours to find Mohammad Shafia, 58; his wife Tooba Yahya, 42; and their son Hamed, 21, each guilty of four counts of first-degree murder in a case that shocked and riveted Canadians from coast to coast.
First-degree murder carries an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years....
Romans 2:1Therefore thou art inexcusable O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest another doest the same things. 2But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. 3And thinkest thou this,O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?.....
There is so much wrong about the picture presented in this article that it defies a sanctified imagination. It is a typical media passion stir. One of Satan's wiles, when he has suceeded, he joins the frey. However in my meditations from this morning a Christian should be able to diffuse such in meekness and truth, then Christ's Spirit should come alongside.
Two quotes to compare with truth. To the law and to the testimony if they speak not according to this word it is because their is no light in them. The judge said, "Four completely innocent victims.." some truth here the accused man's sense of whose honor is at stake was wrong. But can the judge then say, when correctly understood, honor has no place in a civilized society? A society where other acts of violence are acceptable by law and have not effected these strangers living in a gospel influenced nation. This seems a double standard to me. To whom much is given much is required. Read Shafia's last quote. It is not his honor that should take priority.
