( – 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:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
