( – Secretary of State John Kerry has issued a statement calling on the government of Sudan to respect the freedom of religion of Mariam Ibrahim, who was sentenced to death last month for refusing to renounce her Christian faith.

Ibrahim has been imprisoned in Sudan with her 20-month-old son and her infant daughter, who was born in prison.

Christian groups around the world have been working to gain her release, including asking Secretary Kerry to take action.

On Friday, Kerry issued a statement about Ibriham that made no mention of her husband Daniel Wani, who is a naturalized U.S. citizen, and the father of the couple's two children.

“The United States remains deeply concerned about the conviction and continued imprisonment of Ms. Mariam Yahya Ibrahim Ishag,” Kerry said in the statement.

Kerry then went on to express his support for Sudan and its people.

Do you think he is at least as forceful telling Iraqi insurgents not to murder people? :woohoo:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
