Rima Fakih was the first Muslim-America to win the Miss USA crown in 2010. That was then, though. Apparently over the past 6 years, Rima has had a change of heart. Via Jesus. Because now she’s a Christian.
We’ll also assume she has a good bodyguard…
She was the first Muslim to be crowned Miss America in 2010, but Lebanese-American beauty queen Rima Fakih has officially converted to Christianity in April 2016, ahead of tying the knot to her Christian fiancee music producer Wassim Salibi.
While most are convinced that she’s only converted because of “matters of the heart,” – in other words, to be able to marry Salibi – others defended her decision by pointing out that a civil ceremony would have been sufficient in their case, without the need to convert.
Meanwhile, she still has her cross to bear. A large majority of Muslim social media users were infuriated by Rima’s decision to follow Jesus, and assured her that this will “send her straight to Hell.” However, at least a lesser percentage of Muslims were respectful of the starlet’s decision to convert, wishing her luck in whatever she decides to do.
Here’s some of the intolerance headed her way…
Maybe it was just out of love, because she was marrying a believer. In which chase it’s none of anyone else’s business what she decides to do for love. What about “love wins” and “love is love” we here from the LGBTQAIP community all the time? It only matters if you’re gay, but if you convert to Christianity it’s over the bus you go?
Here’s the funny thing. What do you think the left would’ve done if the reverse had happened? If she had been a Christian who converted to Islam? Methinks the red carpet would’ve been rolled out for her. Tells you something about how intolerant not just Muslims are of Christians. In case you needed any reminding.
