Pregnant Sudan Woman To Be Hanged For Converting To Christianity


A Sudan judge has no tolerance for a local woman’s decision of apostasy, in this instance, converting to Christianity, and has ordered her to be executed by hanging.

To make matters worse, she happens to be pregnant.

Via MSN:

“We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged to death,” Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa told the woman, addressing her by her father’s Muslim name, Adraf Al-Hadi Mohammed Abdullah.

Her Christian name is Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag.

Khalifa also sentenced her to 100 lashes for “adultery”.

Ishag, who rights activists say is pregnant and 27 years old, reacted without emotion when Abbas delivered the verdict at a court in the Khartoum district of Haj Yousef.

Earlier in the hearing, an Islamic religious leader spoke with her in the caged dock for about 30 minutes.

Then she calmly told the judge: “I am a Christian and I never committed apostasy.”

Sudan’s Islamist regime introduced sharia law in 1983 but extreme punishments other than flogging are rare.

After the verdict about 50 people demonstrated against the decision.

Western embassies from all corners of the globe have been protesting the verdict so it remains to be seen how things will pan out.

    I’m so embarrassed by some of these people in Africa. Why do they disgrace our rich heritage. They are so hateful to women. They take religion and mix in their own evil masochist ideology. Monsters

    For centuries three religions have been at the core of much of the
    hatred, bigotry and killings going on in this world: Christianity,
    Islam and Judaism.

    For over a 1000 years they’ve fought and killed each other in crusades, inquisitions, massacres, invasions, exterminations, jihads, holy wars, burnings, witch hunts, and beheadings.

    Even today Christians hate Jews, Jews hate Muslims, Muslims hate
    Christians, Christians hate Muslims, Protestants hate Catholics, Shiites
    hate Sunnis’

    All three religions teach the same thing: That our
    God is the only true God; that our beliefs are the only truth; and that
    the other guy’s Gods are false. And it’s OK to use force and violence
    to further your religion

    Sadly these religions spring from the same source and are really suppose
    to teach love, forgiveness, tolerance, kindness and peace.

    Instead they all engage in hate, revenge, intolerance, and war.

    The world world would be a much better place if these three religions had never existed.
