The case about the Sudanese woman condemned to death should not surprise you; it is the exact response we should expect from Islam

I’m sure most of you are already familiar with the Sudanese woman facing execution by hanging for the “crime” of apostasy. For anyone unfamiliar, Meriam Yehya Ibrahim Ishag, a former Muslim, married a Christian man and is now eight months pregnant. She was convicted of apostasy and adultery (since her marriage was not recognized by the Sudanese Sharia court) and sentenced to 100 lashes and death after she refused to return to Islam. The verdict is not final as it is pending appeal, but that fact is irrelevant to this post. The point is that I’m shocked that so many people are surprised by this case. This is merely an example of everyday Islamic rule; it is not — I repeat NOT — “radical Islam.” It is everyday Islam.

The outrage should not lie merely on the death sentence for “apostasy” (a made up, victimless “crime”). It should lie on any system of belief that allows for the brutalization of people who merely act on love. And Islam is precisely the kind of belief system that allows for this (Christianity too if some “fundamentalist” Americans have their way).

Now some might call me a leftist. That might be true. And leftists have every reason to condemn any and every punishment for “apostasy.” But leftists all too often stand in defense of Islam because (in the West at least) it represents a minority group. Bullshit. I’m calling on all leftists to condemn Islam at its very core. Only when Islam is defenseless can we really hone in on the dangers of Christianity, which, at the moment, pale in comparison to the existential threat humanity faces from Islam.

We should not be surprised that this woman faces capital punishment for the victimless crime of leaving one’s religion in pursuit of love. This is precisely what the “religion of peace” will do when left unchecked. So atheists and leftists, stand with your redneck neighbors and condemn the followers of Muhammad. When Islam is brought to its knees, only then do we have a real chance to successfully condemn the dangers of Christianity.

Usually I don’t post political-social commentary. I hope it didn’t catch you too off guard.

    I was wondering when you’d get around to this.
    And no, I’m not shocked at all…
    … You see, this is what I’ve studded and understand more than most have enlightened themselves with, and this is why I was trying to offer a warning to all about those whom seek to rule with a tyrannical system.

    In Uganda, it was Christians that lied about gays and (through those lies) they implemented a punishment that, was, and still is an excuse for crimes against humanity. Though, they have dropped the death penalty. But still, they have intently inflamed violence by offering rewards to anyone that knows any gay people, and many have fled the country while others have been killed, or put in prison for 14 years for so-called “rehabilitation”.

    And as powerful American churches, as well as that of the one in Rome, has instigated and forced their treacherous, intolerant and bigoted religious beliefs there – what then would make you think that they wouldn’t implement and put that into practice here at home? Hell, if you remember in an earlier post, som was arguing for the return of the inquisition, wasn’t he?

    We all have a responsibility to keep those that wish for the return of militant Catholicism, or that of any unmerciful slaveholding tyrannical government, then take notice, and fight it before it kills you.

      I’ve been working long hours, so I kinda messed that last part up. So I’ll do it over.

      We all have a responsibility watch for those that wish for the return of militant Catholicism, or even that of any unmerciful, slaveholding and tyrannical government in check by taking a stand and removing them from their pulpit, and making sure that they never have that position again. For it they have that intolerant position, then so should we. And if found guilty of these crimes, then they should have a sentence of 20 years in a federal prison. I believe that would give them second thoughts on committing such crimes.

      Everyone please take notice, and fight them before they kill you.

    Mr Zehn, when I said:

    “I was wondering when you’d get around to this.”

    I do hope that you were not offended in any way. It was never my intention to do so.

    I always have a tendency to be blunt.
