Washington, D.C. (May 20, 2014) – Rep. Frank Wolf, co-chairman of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission and a longtime advocate for the people of Sudan and South Sudan, today delivered the following remarks on the House floor in defense of Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman sentenced to death after refusing to recant her Christian faith:

“It is 7 p.m. in Khartoum, and a young, frightened Sudanese woman is shackled in a prison cell for refusing to renounce her Christian faith.  Her husband, an American citizen, is seeking to draw attention to her plight and that of her 18-month old son who languishes in jail with her.
“Meriam Ibrahim is eight months pregnant and her draconian sentence of death by hanging is being delayed until she gives birth.  The clock is ticking.
“Congressman Trent Franks has sought to shine a bright light on this injustice. Today we join Senators Blunt and Ayotte in urging Secretary of State John Kerry to provide political asylum to Meriam.
“The administration must urgently act to save this innocent woman’s life.  President Obama should immediately appeal for her release and offer safe haven.“

    How many that call themselves (c)hristians here in “Amerika” know or even care about what is happening RIGHT NOW – TODAY – to:

    1) Sister Meriam Ibrahim in Sudan – a CHRISTian lady married to an American – her ‘crime’ – being a CHRISTian!

    2) Brother Saeed Abedini in Iran – a CHRISTian and American citizen – his ‘crime’ – being a CHRISTian!

    – and only “THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY” knows how many other CHRISTians ALL AROUND THE WORLD who are being Persecuted – only because they are followers of The LORD Jesus Christ!!!

    How few ever think that each and every one of them are also moms,dads, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, …???

    Think about our persecuted CHRISTian Brethren who are being Persecuted, and many Martyred because of their Faith in “THE LORD GOD”.
    The following is a quote about the faith of Persecuted CHRISTians:
    “Those who boldly follow (The LORD Jesus) Christ—in spite of government edict or radical opposition—can face harassment, arrest, torture and even death. Yet CHRISTians continue to meet for worship and to witness for (Jesus) Christ, and the church in restricted nations is growing.”

    Their sincere faith should put “Amerikan” (c)hristians to shame – BUT – me thinks that we are so apathetic and surrounded by Apostasy
    – WHO CARES??????

    CHRISTians – We need to effectively and fervently pray
    (Ja’s 5:16 and Eph 6:18) for all of our Persecuted CHRISTian Brethren all around the world (68+ Countries & Territories) most of which are officially followers of Mohammedanism (aka Islam).

    “We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.” –
    (1 John 3:14 – KJV)

    How few there are here in “Amerika” who seem to realize that the increasing influence of Mohammedanism (aka Islam) -AND- the rapid increase in Apostasy ever more rapidly occurring here in “Amerika” means the near certainly that real and terrible persecution of CHRISTians – similar or worse than what is happening now in Iran, Pakistan, and many other Mohammaden following countries – is very likely to occur at anytime to those that stand firm for The LORD Jesus Christ?
    Please take time to listen to Bro. Paul Washer’s 3 minute & 47 second comment about Persecution

    Because there are so few of those that claim to be followers of “THE LORD JESUS CHRIST” here in “Amerika” [& other ‘civilized countries] that are even aware of – or who actively and often pray for real CHRISTians all around the world who are being PERSECUTED TODAY – will “THE LORD JEHOVAH” even let our CHRISTian Brethren know if/when we are persecuted??????
