We all remember the revulsion of learning of a Sudanese woman sentenced to death for apostasy. Now it turns out she is not executed. And actually released

http://m.bbc.com/news/world-africa-27979782

So IMO It does raise some questions

Many have judged the Muslim religion based upon this case
Is that judgement now changed?

Were we to consult the judgmental
I doubt their opinion is changed
Likely they will say yeah but they did the right thing only because of world pressure

Maybe true
Although there are many things these nations continue to do despite pressure
If they felt they had a religious duty to execute the woman
Then pressure would not save her

Which makes me wonder if this judgement was more idiosyncratic and less a core Muslim deal.

We have another thread about gay fathers In Texas being denied parenthood
Should that case be considered representative if the us justice system. Or an unfortunate out lier.

It seems to me that when we want to condemn a group
We are happy to consider odd events as representative

Otoh when I comes to our own groups. We are very good at making excuses for these anomalies.

Are they still in Sudan?
They'd have to be certifiably nuts to stay there, thinking they're safe now.
