‘Are we dead inside’: Pregnant Sudanese woman sentenced to death for Christian beliefs

On radio this morning, Glenn read a disturbing report involving Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman who was recently sentenced to death by hanging for refusing to renounce her Christian faith. According to her lawyers, Ibrahim, who is married to an American citizen, gave birth to a baby girl in a filthy prison cell in Khartoum, Sudan on Monday. After sharing the story Glenn had a simple question for his listeners: Are we dead inside?

Earlier this month, TheBlaze reported that Ibrahim and her 20-month old son were detained in a Sudanese prison after the 27-year-old refused to renounce her Christian faith.

Ibrahim became a Christian after her father, a Muslim, abandoned her family. After being raised by her Ethiopian mother, who is a Christian, Ibrahim adopted her mother’s faith. Ibrahim later married a Christian man named Daniel Wani. Wani is a U.S. citizen.

Shariah law in Sudan requires that children follow their father’s faith. Ibrahim was first arrested and charged with adultery in August 2013 and was later charged with apostasy in February 2014 after she said she was a Christian and not a Muslim.

The Daily Mail has spoken to Ibrahim’s husband, and he said he had been in contact with the American Embassy in Khartoum, but they refused to assist him.

“I thought this would be the one place which would help me, but they told me they didn’t have time to do anything. I was upset because now that I am American citizen I thought they would help me,” Wani told the Daily Mail. “I was threatened. They said ‘well your wife isn’t American, so we can’t help.’ I felt disgusted. My home is in America and still they won’t help. It’s getting uglier and it’s not going in the right direction.”

Furthermore, the Daily Mail lays out how these charges against Ibrahim came to be:

[Ibrahim’s] lawyer, Mohaned Mustafa Elnour, a Muslim, has received death threats for defending her but has already lodged an appeal. If he does not succeed at the Appeal Court, he will take the case to Sudan’s Supreme Court.

Mr Elnour said the case hinges around the testimony of two men who claim to be her brothers, and one woman who claims to be her mother.

In court they claimed that she had disappeared from the family home in a small village in the east of Sudan and then discovered her living in Khartoum, married to a Christian man.

But the lawyer said all three witnesses have proven to be liars because their evidence to the court has been highly contradictory.

He suggested that the trio are making up their story in an attempt to claim ownership of Meriam’s flourishing general store in a shopping mall on the outskirts of Khartoum.

Mr Elnour added: 'We can prove that Meriam’s mother died in 2012 and that the two others are definite fraudsters. But the court is not interested in our evidence.’

“Will we in America do anything? Are we so dead inside,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “I mean I got on CNN and I said, ‘I will stand with the people who are trying to stop the hetero-fascists in Russia that say death to all homosexuals.’ I will stand with people I really, really don't like… much to their chagrin because we don't do this to people. We don't stone homosexuals. We don't kill people because of their beliefs. We don't do it.”

“If we don't stand for this, what do we stand for? ‘Well, we can't get involved in other people's country.’ Okay, that's fine. This is an American citizen,” he continued. “The father is going to lose the children because the father is Christian and the children cannot be raised by a Christian. I understand this is the Sudan, but these are Americans… We must stand for something.”

While everyone knows that this type of persecution is indefensible, Glenn feared man’s love for his fellow man has waxed cold.

“What is wrong with us? We just had a caller last hour. He said, ‘Our backs have been thrown up against the wall.’ You're damn right it has. Everybody's back is being thrown up against the wall – unless you are part of the elite power group,” Glenn concluded. “[But] you can only complain so long… Americans don't give up on things. Americans also don't strike out in anger and hatred… This is the truth. We are not here to slaughter you. We are here to have you realign yourself with truth.”

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
