Controversial influencer, Andrew Tate has announced that he is converting to Islam, but not for the reason most think. The self-described "success coach" who has radical beliefs about gender equality and has been accused of sex crimes, was until recently stated that the is of the Christian faith explained why he's converting to another religion.
The former kickboxer spreads his beliefs through a Discord channel and it wasn't until he got into a heated discussion with Twitch streamers Adin Ross, Trainwreck, and xQc, who all challenged those beliefs, that he started going on an all-out bender to spread his opinions to lonely men who felt outcast by society.
Now, having been banned from almost every social media platform, this seems to be Tate's effort to get back in the spotlight.
Andrew tate reverting to islam isn't a win. He's an abuser, mysogynist with a history of Human Trafficking, how are y'all ok with that?— Cherry pie (@_Bushra_bhat) October 25, 2022
"Any Christian who believes in good and understands the true battle against evil must convert," the de-platformed influencer suggested. He went on the Full Send podcast and said Islam is the only faith that fully respects its followers.
"I think it's the last religion... It's the last one, because no other religion has boundaries which they enforce. If you will tolerate everything, then you stand for nothing...99% of Christians are ignoring every single rule in the Bible, every single day. They'll try and say they interpret it differently... Only Muslims follow their book, so they're the last religion," he said to the podcast host.
Andrew Tate only ‘joined’ Islam because he thinks Muslim men hate women as much as he does. Which in my opinion makes him pretty racist too.— Ukraine Stan Account(@CrazyNormie) October 27, 2022
While he has stated his positive views of Islam in the past, this is the first time he's publicly come out as identifying with the religion. Although, he seems to be using the Islamic religion as a platform to get away with saying and doing anything he wants rather than trying to better himself as a human being.
