• BRAVE BEAUTY: First Muslim Miss USA Converts To Christianity

    The first woman to win the Miss USA contest known to be of the Muslim faith has some interesting news. She’s converted to Christianity!

    She recently tweeted:

    Oh boy, I bet that went over well in the world of ISIS!

    I hope she has some tough 24 hour security, because a giant target has just been placed on her pretty head.

    After winning the Miss USA contest Rima said this:

    “I’d like to say I’m American first, and I am an Arab-American, I am Lebanese-American, and I am Muslim-American.” Some Muslim scholars at the time criticized her for entering the competition in the first place.

    From Christianity Today:

    Rima Fakih gave her life to Christ last month in the run-up to her marriage in Lebanon next week to Wassim Salibi, a wealthy music producer who is a Maronite Christian.

    Maybe it shouldn’t be a total surprise the Fakih chose to follow Christianity and be the same faith as her husband after this statement she made:

    In a Huffington Post interview in 2010 she said: “We’re more of a spiritual family. Religion really doesn’t define me or my family. My family’s been very liberal, and we appreciate all different kinds of religions.

    She added: “My brother-in-law is Christian, and he (and my sister) baptized their two sons. I have an uncle who converted to Christianity, and he’s a priest now.”

    She said: “We’d go to church on Easter. We always had a Christmas tree and every year we go the Radio City Christmas Show, and watch Miracle on 34th Street. But we celebrate some of the Islamic holidays as well.”

    Nonetheless, the religion of peace is not likely to be supportive of her new faith. Conversion out the Muslim faith is punishable by death under Islamic law.

    Rima Fakih, good luck to you!
