Sheltering converts

Many of us have read about Christians who sheltered Jews from Nazis during WWII. A modern-day analogue would be Christians sheltering Muslim converts to Christianity. Even in the USA, such converts are at risk of being murdered by their kinsmen in a honor killing. They are ostracized by their family and may need a hideout. May need to lay low for a while.

  1. Rifqa Bary is the obvious example of this. Those who sheltered her in Florida very nearly got in trouble for kidnaping, because she was a minor and ran away from home to them.
