Christian dating a jewish man
Also, this true spiritual equality takes away any patriarchy.The woman already agrees with the husband in matters of religion, so what need does he have to control the relationship and lay down religious law? Arlandson A Muslim man is allowed to marry a Christian woman, but a Christian man is not permitted to marry a Muslim woman. 427) This verse, as noted, says that Islam permits Muslim men to marry non-Muslim women who are Christians and Jews, but a Jewish or Christian man may not marry a Muslim woman.I remember hearing an interview on the radio with a Muslim, a few years ago. (In this article I will address only the Christian community.) What is the rationale behind the ruling?Today, this is especially true if he comes from a hard line region in an Islamic country or a hard line Muslim family.Therefore, Christian women must be careful about marrying Muslim men.As the interview began, the host asked the Muslim guest whether he was married. The radio host pressed home the point, saying that the guests first statement was a little misleading, wasnt it? Then, if I recall correctly, the radio host sensed his guests unease and changed the subject. Beyond any doubt, Islam is patriarchal, so a Muslim man must have final control in the relationship.
This means that a marriage between a Muslim and a Christian would be unequal.Further, to be blunt, but also factual, Islam generally is a cruel and harsh slave-master.
