The attorney for an Ohio runaway who said her Muslim father would kill her for converting to Christianity, on Monday said the real danger is her father's mosque.
John Stemberger, attorney, conservative Christian activist and leader of the Florida Policy Council, said the mosque, Noor Islamic Cultural Center, has ties to terrorists.
It is a home to radical Muslims, he said, and Fathima Rifqa Bary's father is a member and subject to its influence. Rifqa ran away, Stemberger said, after other mosque members contacted the girl's father and pressured him "to deal with this matter immediately."
That "matter" was Rifqa's conversion to Christianity.
She ran away July 19, saying her father, Mohamed Bary, 47, had threatened to kill her.
