(L Times) Meriam determined to stay a Christian, says her husband Daniel Wani

Mr Wani, 27, said his wife was “frustrated” by her situation but was committed to maintaining that she was Christian.

He told CNN: “There is pressure on her from Muslim religious leaders that she should return to the faith. She said, ”˜How can I return when I never was a Muslim? Yes my father was a Muslim, but I was brought up by my mother.’

” I know my wife. She’s committed. Even last week, they brought in sheikhs and she told them, ”˜I’m pretty sure I’m not going to change my mind’….I’m standing by her to the end. Whatever she wants, I’ll stand by her.”

    I have posted on my FB wall about her since I first found out about her situation. I am glad there is growing outrage in the international community. There *should* be! She is a Christian woman married to a Christian man. While the husband is an US citizen, he is also Sudanese having escaped Sudan as a boy. I am glad they are remaining committed to their Lord. Any Christian who values the religious freedom we have in this country needs to prayer for her and help keep her situation in front of the international community.

    Compare and contrast the feminist response regarding abortion rights and the response to this outrage. Perhaps there have been demonstrations and petitions got up among the leaders of women’s groups, but if so they have not appeared in the media.

    I don’t know Terry but I suspect this outrage is coming from the international community who see this situation as the persecution it really is. Typically feminists don’t care about persecution unless it is them being *persecuted*.
