Pregnant Woman in Sudan Sentenced to Death for Being Christian

It’s not as though you need more evidence of the evil that is Islam. You have enough.

But every opportunity to shed light on the horrors of Islam must be taken – even if only for history to understand the darkness that Islam brought to our planet.

In Sudan, a 27 year old pregnant woman has been sentenced to death for being a Christian. She was charged with apostasy or “abandoning Islam” because she has become a Christian. Meriam Yehya Ibrahim’s father was a Muslim man who was absent for most of her childhood. Her mother chose to raise her as an Orthodox Christian, and she is now married to a Christian man from South Sudan. The court does not believe her testimony and says that she cannot prove her story to be true.

The Sudanese kangaroo court has decided that Mrs. Ibrahim was indeed a Muslim and has now committed two terrible crimes. The first, apostasy for abandoning Islam. The second, the crime of marrying a Christian.

Ibrahim – who already has a 20-month-old son – was also sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery because she is married to a Christian man from South Sudan, the oil-rich nation which recently gained independence. Marrying a Christian is prohibited under strict Islamic law, which is part of Sudan’s constitution…

Following her conviction on Sunday, Ibrahim was given three days to recant her faith or face a death sentence. Amnesty International’s Sudan researcher Manar Idriss said Ibrahim’s lawyers plans to appeal the conviction, but she is expected to remain in custody with her young child.

The young woman’s lawyers tell Amnesty International that on Sunday the Court convicted her and told her that she had three days to recant her faith. They called her back on Thursday and demanded she recant and renounce Christianity.

She replied, “I am a Christian.”

So the monsters sentenced her to death.

islamIn an effort to deflect criticism from his country, Sudan’s Information minister Ahmed Bilal Osman said, “It’s not only Sudan. In Saudi Arabia, in all the Muslim countries, it is not allowed at all for a Muslim to change his religion.”

This small quote that most in the main stream media will miss, is telling. This small quote is SCREAMING for coverage because it sheds light on the lie that is Islamic propaganda. The lie is that only “extremist Islam” is evil. Only extremist Islam is dangerous. Only extremist Islam is our enemy.

There is no “extremist Islam.” All of Islam is EXTREME.

I weep for my sister Meriam Yehya Ibrahim. I pray that the court will overturn or set aside its verdict and let her return to her family. I pray that they do not kill her or her child.

But I also rejoice in her bravery and her testimony of faith. I know that whatever happens our God will be glorified and this will work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose. God will see that my sister in the faith has justice… even if it is not served here on Earth.
