More than two-thirds of evangelicals in America share the same religion as their spouse, according to a 2007 survey by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life. Not Frank Fredericks, founder of World Faith. Last month, Fredericks, a non-denominational evangelical, married Medina del Castillo, a Muslim, in an interfaith ceremony. While both families embrace the union, Fredericks says that not all of his extended family were necessarily supportive of a Christian marrying a Muslim. And for her part, del Castillo says that when she first started dating Fredericks, she held a pre-conceived notion of evangelicals as zealots fixated on converting the masses. “So I think it’s been a very nice learning experience,” she says. “I think that will continue in our marriage.”
