LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The sickening five-minute video emerged on ISIS-affiliated Web pages recently. It is not clear when the footage was actually shot and has not been independently verified.

A militant orders her to be "content and happy" that she is about to be stoned to death because, he says, her death has been ordered by God and is therefore required under Islamic law.

Act now, please help save fellow Christians from genocide!

It is believed he had been granted the barbaric "honor" of being allowed end the life of the daughter he felt had betrayed both him and her religion.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, it's the first documented case of a man being stoned to death for adultery since Syria descended into civil war in 2011.
