On a recent episode of “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson told a viewer that he should break off his interfaith relationship.

During the Q&A segment of the program, a man named Brad wrote in explaining that he had been in a relationship with a Muslim woman for three years and that they were planning to get married.
“No way! No way! She’s going to want to do her Muslim thing and you’re going to want to do your Christian thing. There will be constant struggle and strife. Walk away,” said Robertson. …
According to Kamal Nawash, president of the Free Muslims Coalition, Robertson’s remarks fit with what many religious leaders preach.

“While I am not a fan of Robertson, he cannot be blamed for his latest statement. He is merely preaching generally accepted Christian orthodoxy. Most religious leaders, of any faith, adopt the same rule as Robertson,” said Nawash in an interview with The Christian Post.
Nawash explained that with Islamic practice there is some room allowed for interfaith marriages, but only between a Muslim and someone who is either Jewish or Christian.
