Leon Watson and Daniel Bates, "The baby born on a prison floor to a mother in shackles is blessed by the Pope: Sudanese woman who was put on death row for marrying a Christian Meets Francis after travelling to Rome", 24 July 2014 Daily Mail Online, United Kingdom.
|Meriam Ibrahim, daughter Maya|
and Pope Francis in Rome last week
The byline for the British Daily Mail article above is quite misleading and, quite frankly, inaccurate. Meriam was sentenced to death for refusing to renounce her own Christian faith. She was further sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery (she had sex with her Christian husband). You may recall that I wrote numerous posts about her during late May and June.
Now, l shall be politically incorrect but correct nonetheless: We should see the Meriam Ibrahim case as a clear warning of the brutality and barbarity of Islam and Sharia law.
A fate similar to what was waiting for Meriam awaits Christian "infidels" everywhere as Islam spreads and becomes the state religion in more places. They are using western pluralistic, multi-culturalists as useful idiots: Islam has no such interests.
Under Islamic law, Christians who refuse to renounce Christ and become Muslim will suffer and die. If the world becomes Islamic (and that's the Islamic goal) Christian readers of this blog, or future generations of Christians, would eventually face an equally grim fate under Islam as Meriam narrowly escaped.
In places like Egypt, Syria, Iran and Africa countless Christians are suffering and dying for their faith. It grows each year. Much of the secular western media turn a blind eye to this growing and horrendous Christian persecution. Why? I think it's because that much of western liberal, secular media in vehemently anti-Christian too.
The Meriam Ibrahim story got coverage because its gross and flagrant violation of fundamental human rights became visible -- to visible to be ignored or suppressed. Millions of other Christians being persecuted fall under the media radar.
I want to conclude this blog post by congratulating everyone who spoke up for Meriam Ibrihim and her family. You literally helped save her from torture and execution!
Remember, other Christians are suffering and dying for Christ even as I write these words. Please do not forget them in your prayers: They are our brothers and sisters in Christ.
