No White House Hashtags for Meriam Ibrahim
Proclaimed our Community Organizer in Chief on Armed Forces Day, which has been fundamentally transformed into IDAHOT Day:
“No one should face violence or discrimination — no matter who they are or whom they love.”
Unless of course they love Jesus Christ. Then they are subject to the Meriam Ibrahim treatment:
International outrage is mounting over the death sentence a Sudanese judge ordered for the pregnant wife of an American citizen – all because she refuses to renounce her Christian faith.
Meriam Ibrahim, 26, was sentenced Thursday after being convicted of apostasy. The court in Khartoum ruled that Ibrahim must give birth and nurse her baby before being executed, but must receive 100 lashes immediately after having her baby for adultery – for having relations with her Christian husband. Ibrahim, a physician and the daughter of a Christian mother and a Muslim father who abandoned the family as a child, could have spared herself death by hanging simply by renouncing her faith.
“We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam,” Judge Abbas Khalifa told Ibrahim, according to AFP. “I sentence you to be hanged to death.”
But Ibrahim held firm to her beliefs.
Meanwhile, most Americans go along with our culture being flushed down the sewer because they don’t have the guts to stand up to political correctness. It’s good to see the human spirit still lives somewhere — although it won’t live in Meriam Ibrahim for long if they go through with the planned execution.
Ibrahim was raised in the Christian faith by her mother, an Orthodox Christian from Ethiopia. She is married to Daniel Wani, a Christian from southern Sudan who has U.S. citizenship, according to sources who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The wife of a US citizen is about to be publicly whipped and hanged for being Christian — yet the Obama Regime has reacted with sneering indifference:
Daniel Wani described the unconscionable indifference to his wife and family’s plight. Re-affirming what is quite evident, “My wife was never a Muslim,” Wani–a U.S. citizen–pleaded with “the government of the USA to help me.” But Wani claims that when he called the U.S. Embassy on April 9, 2014 a representative in Khartoum informed him of their lack of interest in the case. Noting that the couple’s toddler boy, Martin, is a U.S. citizen by virtue of his father’s U.S. citizenship, Daniel Wani also declared that U.S. Embassy officials in Khartoum have not cooperated in granting the family travel papers to leave The Sudan, and further have told him he must prove he is the father with a DNA test prior to even offering any assistance!
You might think the situation would call for at least a hashtag photo op for the Bitter Half. But no.
