Pat Robertson: Dump Your Muslim Girlfriend

 A 700 Club viewer asked Pat Robertson today if he should marry his Muslim girlfriend of three years even though he is a Christian, to which Robertson responded, “no way.” “She wants to do her Muslim thing and you want to do your Christian thing,” Robertson said, “walk away.” He urged him to pray for her to become a Christian, “and if that doesn’t work say, ‘I’m sorry, good bye.’” Robertson, who is no fanof Muslims, explained that it isn’t necessarily Christ-like to be “nice and friendly” as “he’s not gentle Jesus, meek and mild, he really isn’t.”

    You reveal nothing but your ignorance.
    Muslims men are not allowed to marry sisters at the same time even I know that. As for the rest of you post paranoid at best I am afraid
    Try reading the Quran and maybe we can have an adult discussion some time .

    @Yak
    “No one here questions Muslim polygamy or pederasty, but will jail anyone else”

    So are you saying that we keep a prison cell behind this website?

    Suppose his muslim lady becomes his wife, and later her sister wants to come here from where ever, but needs a husband to do that. Maybe his wife will suggest that he marry her sister as well as wife number two. No one here questions Muslim polygamy or pederasty, but will jail anyone else. Appears that possession of nuclear weapons, and possession of ability to withhold an economy’s vital energy supply from this country, the United States of America, confers immunity from its criminal legal system…being Muslim here puts you above the law in most cases except terrorism. I know that this site is a front for pro-Islamic propaganda.

    Thanks for sharing with us what you fantasise about during those private moments with yourself, “Abdel”.

  • Abdel, I don’t think anyone honestly gives a damn about your ‘treatment’ of women. Do grow up someday.

    HAHA! I had 2 muslim girl friends and both converted to Christianity! I still dumped them and now they are married to other Christians, raising Christian children! Life’s a b*tch, isn’t it?

  • Nabeel

    I can’t say I disagree with Pat here, and like Stephen G Parker said in his comment, marriages between two people who have such different worldviews (with each hoping for the other side to convert) can’t possibly end very harmoniously.

    Jul, regardless of Islam’s stance in intermarriage, there is a clear–and major–difference between those who say the only way of salvation is to acknowledge Jesus and God incarnate and those who believe that such a claim is completely false and involves making someone a partner with the One True God and guilty of Shirk.

    My first reason given is that this alone would make sincere believers of either faith greatly challenged to live in a harmonious marriage. You say Muslim mate would not interfere with his or her Christian mate’s religious views; however, entering into such a marriage would, in fact, violate the Biblical Christian mate’s religious views–it would involve becoming “unequally yoked”.

    Now, some Christians may choose to ignore what the Bible says about this, but exerting pressure to ignore it by proposing such marriage is, in fact, pressure to not be faithful.

    YMMV; some may try to interpret the Bible differently, but I do not find the exegetical support for it.

    @Daniel – ‘Both Biblical Christianity and Traditional Islam make certain very exclusive faith claims that, if you accept, will make a sincere believer of either one very unhappy when married to someone who doesn’t share their beliefs’

    I cannot speak for ‘Biblical Christianity’, but for Islam, ‘traditional’ or not, the only claim it rejects concerning Christianity is the trinity and the deification of Jesus the messenger. But even though still Islam rejects such claim, I don’t think that prevents Muslims from marrying Christians and Jews, nor that there is suppose to be any trouble coming from the Muslim mate of the couple. That’s why when Muslim men explicitly permitted in the Qur’an to marry Jew and Christian women, he is to accept and respect the differences of her belief and never prevent her in any way from worshiping God her own way. Don’t forget that as far as Islam is concern, though it claims some parts of both Jesus and Moses messages were corrupted by their later followers, Islam never claimed Christianity and Judaism are false, and considers both Christians and Jews a part of its own message.

  • @ ali – I believe you have misunderstood what Peter was saying. The question was not whether it was proper for a believing woman to ENTER INTO a marriage with an unbelieving man. It was a question of how a woman who has embraced the Christian faith since being married should react to her still unbelieving husband. Should she leave him, or act arrogantly toward him? The answer is: not at all. She should seek to continue living with him in a humble and peaceful way, in the hope that her husband may eventually also embrace the Christian faith.

    The apostle Paul expanded on this a bit in 1 Corinthians 7:12-16 – and specifically established an equality between male and female. Quoting from the New Revised Standard Version: “(12) To the rest I say – I and not the Lord” [meaning he had no statement from Jesus on this matter] – “that if any believer has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce her. (13) And if any woman has a husband who is an unbeliever, and he consents to live with her, she should not divorce him. (14) For the unbelieving husband is made holy through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy through her husband. Otherwise, your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. (15) But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so; in such a case the brother or sister is not bound. It is to peace that God has called you. (15) Wife, for all you know, you might save your husband. Husband, for all you know, you might save your wife.”

    Paul doesn’t sound like such a “woman hater” as many people portray him, does he? He definitely says that the believing husband should continue to live with his unbelieving wife, as well as – as Peter said – that the believing wife should continue to live with her unbelieving husband. But if the unbelieving partner should seek to end the marriage, the believer should feel no compulsion to try to maintain the relationship.

    Actually the Bible does say Christian WOMEN can marry non-Christian men:

    Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives,
    (1 Peter 3:1)

    Interesting there is no verse that says the same about men.

  • The world is full of many wonderful people of differing religions, and no religion at all, joining together in meaningful, respectful and amazingly loving long term partnerships.
