A Sudanese court sentenced a pregnant 27 year old woman, called Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, to death this week. Her crime was she fell in love and married a Christian man and affirmed her faith in Christianity.
According to Islamic writers and historical evidence, there IS no unified Sharia law that would support what the Sudanese government is doing. At one time it was considered treason to leave the faith, but that was a very long time ago.
