Pregnant Christian Woman in Sudan Sentenced to Death for Apostasy
NBC News ^ | 15 May | Alexander Smith

Posted on 05/15/2014 6:15:39 AM PDT by xzins

A pregnant woman in Sudan was sentenced to death by hanging Thursday because she refused to renounce Christianity for Islam, a leading human rights group said, in a case that has drawn international condemnation.

Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, who is eight months pregnant, was convicted under the Islamist-led government on charges of apostasy - the crime of abandoning or criticizing Islam - which is punishable by death in several Muslim-majority countries. The U.S., Canada and the U.K. have decried the verdict.

Her lawyers told Amnesty International that religious clerics in court had asked the 27-year-old Thursday if she would recant her faith - but she told them: "I am a Christian."

Ibrahim's father was a Muslim but apparently was absent for most of her childhood. She told the court in the capital Khartoum that she had been raised by her mother as an Orthodox Christian, but the court said there was no evidence of this beyond 2005 and that she had recently converted from Islam.

Judge: "We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged to death" #Sudan

It is telling that the judge gave a Christian...3 days.

Wonder if it was intentional?

Will they kill the baby with the mother or will they wait for its birth?

More zany antics from that sacred cow of the Left, http://www.thereligionofpeace.com

In all seriousness, we must pray for this woman to be spared from the evils of the perverted death cult and its rabid adherents.

Prayers for the mother and her child.
Also interesting that her name is Meriam.

Yes, her name suggests she was raised a Christian.

My first thoughts as well. Many prayers are needed for this woman and her unborn child.

heart wrenching story xins- I know a number of Sudanese Christians...a number have ended up in Rochester at the church my wife served in after leaving/shoved from our own. They are sweet sweet people with a heart for God - and I would not be surprised if Uduk know the person in the story.

Hope your ministry is doing well, thinking of you and Corin on occasion on those great old theology threads

Your thought is absolutely correct and proper. Prayers for Merian and her child. May wickedness be vanquished from our Lord’s earth; for wickedness is the soul of all islam.

It’s a good thing it’s not a Christian country offending a muslim woman. THAT is a problem.

muslomaniacs killing a pregnant Christian woman? The media won’t say too much for fear of reprisals.

Cowards.

Remember that martyrdom does spare her from their evil, and if she is martyred, then her name should be on our lips every time some leftist or muzzie starts preaching about the religion of peace, or that “Muslims believe in Jesus too, ya know.”

Yes, I think of all of the old crew frequently. Corin was among the best. Hope all is well with him and his loved ones.

Yes, I understand the Islamic call to prayer is one of the most beautiful sounds Obama has ever heard.

Wonder how beautiful it will sound to him the day the Muslims kill Meriam for believing in Jesus?

Your picture is probably an accurate prediction...

Of course it was.

And my attitude has been, if you get this upset over “blasphemy, then your God is not God. What, God can’t handle harsh language and you gotta go out and do this BS?

Typical islam minus the veneer of taqiyya.

It’s us or them, and given western - and American reluctance to fight evil, it will likely be them.

If I recall correctly, Mohammed was presented with a similar situation: An adulteress became pregnant. He allowed her to carry the child, give birth, and then she nursed the child until the little boy or girl could be weaned.

Then Mohammed had her stoned to death.

Those sadistic Imams are getting sexually aroused by this stuff. It is the only explanation for their obsession with maiming and killing...
