Plato, you have quoted the verse Quran 9:28 to support that pagans are unclean. The following is the extract:

Quran 9:28, "O ye who believe! Truly the pagans are unclean, so let them not approach the Sacred mosque....".

You speak rubbish! On one hand you encourage us to have some deeper relationship with the pagans and on the other hands you encourage muslims to have deeper relationship with women.

We, moderate muslims, will uphold the truth that non-muslims are pagans and we discourage non-muslims to marry with muslims. For instance, if a non-muslim would want to marry muslim, our advice to him or her is to be converted to muslim so that he/she could marry her/him respectively.

However, you have called muslims to mix with non-muslims for marriage or to have deeper or secret relationship with them. What's a silly teaching! How could we, muslims, the holy people, to mix with the unclean people? All muslims would call you a clown since you do not know how we, muslims, treat non-muslims, the unclean. Do you think we, moderate muslims, would encourage our muslim children to marry your non-muslim friends, or non-muslim children or etc. It is absurd and you have abused the fundamental teaching of the Holy Quran.

Submitting....
