Shame on Sudan

It pains me so to think about the position in which Mariam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag finds herself. This Sudanese woman converted to Christianity, married a Christian and is scheduled for execution. According to the Islamic baboons that prosecuted her, she has committed apostasy. Just think, she has had the courage to step outside the narrow- minded restrictions that these alpha males impose; and, now they want to snuff her out. These primates have not a clue about the right to worship the Almighty in a manner of one's own choosing.

Presently Ms. Ishag has a reprieve from her demise as she is pregnant. However, upon giving birth she will be given 100 lashes with a whip and then put to death. Leaving behind two young children and a husband, her commitment to Christianity is admirable; and, that's putting it mildly.  Like Nelson Mandela she is clinging on to The Truth at all costs. I hope she knows that the evolved on this planet are behind her 100%. I hope she is finding comfort in her faith.

The truth is folks: regardless of your religion there is no escape from the evolutionary message of Jesus the Christ. By virtue of being primates on the evolutionary ascent, dynamics between us must evolve.  Unlike chimp societies, our alpha males no longer serve a function. If we are to manifest our highest aspirations for human rights and universal democracy we will need much more cooperation and a lot less domination. At the turn of this new millennium it is becoming increasingly apparent that Jesus had it right all along. It really will be the meek who shall inherit the Earth. And, when they do, they are sure to look back on people like Ms. Ishag with great gratitude for the sacrifices they made in order to keep the Truth alight.

Faithfully yours,

Sheila Banks
