MERIAM IBRAHIM ~
SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR BEING A CHRISTIAN
I don’t usually do this, but I great sympathy and admiration for this woman. If nothing else, we can speak out against such action, regardless of country, regardless of Faith. She hurt no one. She is willing to die for her Faith…
WHAT KIND OF FAITH MAKES YOU KILL A PREGNANT WOMAN JUST BECAUSE HER FAITH IS DIFFERENT??????????
On Thursday, May 14, 2014, a Sudanese judge sentenced Meriam Ibrahim to death. Her crime? She’s a Christian. Raised as a Christian by her Christian mother, the judge ruled her an apostate – a crime punishable by death in Sudan – simply because her father was Muslim.
According to Fox News, Meriam is pregnant, and the death sentence will be carried out after she gives birth. Between the birth and her execution, she is also to receive 100 lashes. Faced with torture then death, Meriam has remained courageously steadfast. The Sudanese judge gave her three days to recant her faith, but she refused, declaring that she was “never a Muslim” and was “raised Christian from the start.” Meriam is facing death for her faith.
Let’s do what we can to be heard on her behalf.
A Christian woman, Meriam Ibrahim, has been sentenced to hang.
Sudan says she must die because she is a Christian.
She is pregnant; and before they execute her, they will punish her with 100 lashes because she married an American Christian.
Her other child – a 20-month-old boy, a U.S. citizen – is being forced to suffer in prison with her.
The Sudanese judge who sentenced her to death gave her three chances to recant – to abandon her Christian faith. Meriam refused. “I am a Christian, and I will remain a Christian,” she said.
She won’t abandon her faith. We must not abandon her.
We’re aggressively mobilizing our international teams to save her life. She must be freed; her American son must be freed.
Your voice can make the difference, but time is of the essence. Be heard.
