In Sudan, A Christian Woman Sentenced to be Hanged for Apostasy

She's nine months pregnant. They'll permit her to give birth to her baby and wean it before executing her.

However, the punishment for "adultery" -- 100 lashes -- will be administered immediately after the birth.

he woman, Mariam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag, brought her punishment of death upon herself, said Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa: "We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam."

"I sentence you to be hanged to death." For good measure, Judge Khalifa ordered the woman to be beaten with 100 lashes of the whip before being hung for "adultery."

The "adultery" in question is not adultery. Sharia does not recognize the marriage between the woman (whom it considers an apostate Muslim) and a Christian man, ergo, their sexual congress is "adultery."

Oh, and her 20-month-old child is in jail with her. Because Sharia law will not permit the Christian husband to care for a child they claim is Muslim.

I'm not hearing anything about this story except from right-leaning sources.

We have, once again, an incredible outrage, barbaric, dehumanizing, and fascistic, but the "Villains are wrong." The villains aren't the villains the left prefers.

Ergo, the outrage must be tacitly permitted.

Has the State Department even taken the drastic step of issuing a vigorous #Hashtag? A search did not disclose that any #hashtag activism had been undertaken.

And Her Husband Has US Citizenship, Too: Wow.

The US State Department has managed to rouse itself enough to say it's "deeply disturbed."

No hashtag, though, I guess.
