Fraudulently Christian

As the Sandmonkey says, this is too stupid to explain. Quoting is less painful:

CAIRO: A Christian woman who was sentenced to three years imprisonment for allegedly fraudulently stating that she is Christian on her marriage certificate, was released Monday, her lawyer told Daily News Egypt.

Shadia Nagui Ibrahim, 47, was unaware that legally she was a Muslim as a result of her father's conversion from Christianity to Islam when she was two years old.
And so on.

The problem we face is that we can't threaten to impose restrictions on freedom of conscience here as a lever to try to get Islamic countries to end this oppressive and supremacist behaviour.

We could withhold aid, though.

Eh? "Withhold" sounds temporary. Cease is the word.

Nah, withhold. Keep their hopes alive. Falsely.
