I Do Not Understand Sudan Muslims

I have been fortunate in life meeting many outstanding people who adhere to the Muslim religion. The doctor who saved my life is Muslim as well as very close friends so it baffles me when encountering those of the Muslim faith who violate its basic principles in the name of Allah. The vast majority of Muslims in this world are just like Christians or Jews or Buddhists. Basically, most humans are decent and not into violence– sorry, Fox News, you folk are the exception to the rule of decency. A few months ago in the nation of Sudan a woman named Meriam Ibrahim was sentenced to death for the heinous crime of converting from the Muslim religion to that of Christianity. In the nation of Sudan, it is perfectly OK for a Muslim man to marry a woman of another faith, but it is death for a Muslim woman to marry a Christian. Actually, Meriam was raised as a Christian and married a Sudan Christian who also had an American citizenship.

Anyway, after being sentenced to death, the Sudan High Court reversed the decision and she was able to leave the country. The Muslim religion guarantees the right of people to practice their religion. It is only in nations such as the Sudan that this basic principle is violated. Meriam is now in Italy and will soon be in the arms of Pope Francis!
