  1. Honor might be to god. Dishonoring god might well be blasphemy. Dishonoring one's prophet might be grounds for some to commit a worse act but murder. How irreconcilable in any religion or lawful society is that!. http://quotationsboo...otes/tag/honor/ Honor comes in many guises. i.e. Better to die a thousand deaths than wound my honor. Still there can be no honor in murder for honors sake. I suggest that those that would murder a spouse or child be prevented from entry to our country by close questioning..vetting of their cultural roots. Why should we indeed suffer such to share our bounty and societal requirements. Or.. reinstate duels over insults of honor... http://www.satireand...c1007honor.html I believe the following to be at least reasonably accurate. "Honor crimes" are sometimes assumed to be sanctioned by Islam since they mainly occur in the Middle East. But while perpetrators of "honor crimes" often cite religious justification for their acts, these crimes are not rooted in any religious text. "Honor crimes" originated in customary law that pre-dates Islam and Christianity. They span communities, religions, and countries, including Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, Ecuador, Egypt, Guatemala, India, Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Pakistan, Palestine, Peru, Syria, Turkey, and Venezuela." The word honor itself is ambiguous and can be interpreted much as one would to self serve. Many countries treat honor killings very differently. To me a murder is a murder, classifying it under a rubric of honor changes not much unless one wishes to point fingers in one direction or another. A cowboy a soldier a husband might fight for their honor. To kill a child or spouse for honor is quite simply beyond most contemporary societies imagination. However back in the day there was an unwritten law that pretty much forgave a man that caught his wife In flagrante delicto and then murdered her. Sentences were invariably lighter in such cases
