On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Biniyam takes Ariela to his church. He identifies as an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian and asks the priest about his son being baptized as a Christian.

TLC 90 Day Fiance Spoilers – Won’t Convert To ‘Superstitious’ Christianity
Ariela explains that she has no intention of converting to Christianity. She doesn’t agree with the beliefs, including Hell. She doesn’t think that Hell exists, which is one of the core beliefs of Christianity. She also doesn’t think that something so horrible should be taught to her child. She explains,
“Honestly, I always felt really uncomfortable with the idea of Christianity because I don’t believe in hell. It’s just so awful to me. I just don’t think that it’s something we should be teaching our son.”
In a previous episode of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Ariela told her family that her son was going to be raised Jewish. When her sister asked if Biniyam had any say in that, the 28-year-old said that he doesn’t. She added that she thinks there are certain aspects of Biniyam’s religion “superstitious.”

Ariela also explained that her parents are not of the same faith. Her mother is Roman Catholic and her father is Jewish. Now, there are many parents who are of different religions and handle how their kids are raised in different ways. Some pick one religion, others teach their children both and there are those who let the kids decide what faith (if any) they want to be part of when they are grown.
However, religion can be very important to people and there are some individuals that can’t negotiate on that. Some fear of what will happen to the child’s soul.
