  • Sudanese Woman Freed: High Court Throws Out Apostasy Charge

    Originally posted by One News Now
    KHARTOUM, Sudan (June 23, 2014) - A Sudanese woman on death row for apostasy had her sentence canceled and was ordered released by a Khartoum court on Monday, the country's official news agency reported.
    SUNA said the Court of Cassation canceled the death sentence against 27-year-old Meriam Ibrahim after defense lawyers presented their case. The court ordered her release.
    Ibrahim, whose father was Muslim but who was raised by her Christian mother, was convicted of apostasy for marrying a Christian. Sudan's penal code criminalizes the conversion of Muslims to other religions, a crime punishable by death.

      So...wait, even though she was never a Muslim, she was still considered one because her father was a Muslim?! That's not right.

          Her brother says she should still die if she doesn't "repent". She should immediately flee the country because someone is going to kill her there. They are just whacko like that...

            Bill, you are just a xenophobe, you can't make negative cultural judgements like that.

                    I believe the term you are looking for is 'islam'.

                      Yeah, that is sure not right.
                      Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

                          For the sarcastically impaired the following is said in jest

                          Yes, somebody needs to get right one that.

                            Well, look at the bright side. At least they aren't raping children anymore, like the Ottoman Empire did.

                              I don't think anybody seriously missed the sarcasm... right?

                              But, yes, excellent news. I do hope the Congressman's mention of the United States possibly accepting her comes to fruition (or any other country with security/a reasonable legal system).
