Why marrying for love should never mean death

See on Scoop.itHealth and Inhumanity

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.

Dave Cottrell‘s insight:

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.

 

As the writers of this article state, "This lurch towards medievalism is largely driven by the global Islamist movement, which was born in 1928 when the Muslim Brotherhood was established, and gained real momentum after the Iranian revolution in 1979."
