Tony Perkins brought Republican Congressman Mark Meadows on his radio show this week to support his claim that the Obama administration hasn’t done anything to help Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian woman sentenced to death for apostasy. Meadows debunked that claim completely:
Asked if the State Department was working to help Ibrahim and her children, Meadows reported that the U.S. has in fact worked vigorously behind the scenes to free Ibrahim: “I got off of a call not more than an hour or so ago and a number of agencies across the board are working hand-in-glove to make sure that this is handled quickly and efficiently. And I am heartened by what I heard on that phone call and really encouraged that this is a government that cares about people. Sometimes I wish they would speak up louder and quicker, but I can tell you behind the scenes a number of agencies are working to make sure that they are safe.”Just minutes later, however, Perkins completely discarded the congressman’s assessment and once again accused the Obama administration of doing little to help secure Ibrahim’s release.
Of course he did. Tony Perkins doesn’t give two shits about the truth, he cares only about scoring political points.
