I admire her, too, dori. I completely disagree with animal sacrifice for religious purposes. All religions, in my opinion, were simply created by men (and a few women) who want to control and who want to make sure that their flocks feel better about death. That's it in a nutshell....we need to feel that death isn't the end, like snuffing out a candle. (Look at the Mormons and the news out of Texas. IF that's not a cult of old pedophiles, I don't know what is!)
There are lots of things wrong and abhorrant about the Muslim religious practices and within the cultures of the Middle East, one of them being these so -called "honor killings." I do not think that statement is spreading hate. It's simply a fact and if Muslims can't fathom that, then they must accept why they are viewed the way they are by so many people.
The Muslims AND ALL religions, including Christianity, need to take a look at some of their beliefs and determine if they're really necessary, but then that won't happen in a million years, will it?
When cultures and religions are based so much on male control and making sure the masses remain in basic ignorance, nothing will change.
