I received an urgent request from LifeNews.com to sign a petition to Sudan to spare the life of Christian convert Meriam Ibraham. The details are below and a link to sign a petition is above. Will it influence the Sudanese government? I don't know, but we must try. She is our sister in Christ and is about to be tortured and killed for her Christian faith. Are we prepared to die for our Christian faith? I ask that you sign the petition above, ask your friends, co-workers, neighbors, family and members of your church to sign it. DO IT QUICKLY! MERIAM'S LIFE AND THAT OF HER UNBORN CHILD HANG IN THE BALANCE. (Her 20 month old son is also jailed with her and sick from prison conditions.)
Meriam will be tortured - beaten with 100 lashes for marrying an American Christian. Then she will be hung for being a Christian. Meanwhile, her son, a 20-month-old boy and American citizen, is also jailed with her and is sick from the prison conditions.
Ibrahim’s husband, U.S. citizen Daniel Wani, said lawyers representing her told Amnesty International that religious clerics in court had asked her if she would recant her faith, but she told them: “I am a Christian.”The death sentence issued to a woman who refused to renounce Christianity for Islam in Sudan is an “egregious violation of basic human rights,” Congressman Chris Smith (NJ-04), Chairman of the House congressional panel that oversees U.S. policy in Africa, said previously.
“This is an affront to religious freedom everywhere,” Smith said. “The refusal of the government of Sudan to allow religious freedom was one of the reasons for Sudan’s long civil war. The U.S. and the rest of the international community must demand Sudan reverse this sentence immediately.”
