( – 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 danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
