Topic - Khartoum
Occasionally a shaft of sunshine breaks through the gloom that seems to envelop most of the world in this season of our dismay. Such a shaft broke through the clouds over Khartoum on Monday, when a Sudanese appeals court ordered Meriam Ibrahim freed from the cell where she has been living with her two children under sentence of flogging and the gallows.
The Catholic Archdiocese of Khartoum has urged Sudanese authorities to review the legal case of Meriam Ibrahim, a Catholic woman who faces a death sentence for allegedly abandoning Islam.
The Obama administration merely watches as a foreign country prepares to hang an American for her faith. The government of Sudan has convicted one Dr. Meriam Yehya Ibrahim Ishig for the "crime" of religious apostasy.
