And this horrifying reminder of what happens when Muslims who take their religion seriously are in charge, from May 15, 2014 BBC:
A Sudanese court has sentenced a woman to hang for apostasy - the abandonment of her religious faith - after she married a Christian man.
Amnesty International condemned the sentence, handed down by a judge in Khartoum, as "appalling and abhorrent".
Local media report the sentence on the woman, who is pregnant, would not be carried out for two years after she had given birth.
Sudan has a majority Muslim population, which is governed by Islamic law.Islam is not a variant of Christianity or Judaism. Unfortunately, the left just does not get it. They keep calling Republicans "the American Taliban."
"We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged to death," the judge told the woman, AFP reports.
