dear brother may god bless you. what i can understand from your writing is misunderstanding about islam. first of all i would like to clear that islam or quran never meant a specific religion when it call any one kafir or pig,what ever it is. but it pointed to certain characters, kafir means one who deny after receiving true message. it may even be muslims. i will tell you how, i am muslim and i know all teachings of islam. and if i am doing opposite of that teachings i am also a kaffir, same as in the case of munafik and the place where quran called some one pig. dont understand islam in the way some people who trying to disgrace islam in front of world. try to read about all religion and try to choose the best one.

And another misconception against islam is in marriage, that what you said. Brother a muslim can marry a christian woman but as you said there is no need for her conversion to islam. she can go on with her faith. and the reason for not alowing a muslim women to marry a christian men is that she cant go with her faith. even if she could her children will be grown in other religion. if all these debates are for understanding and we have strong desire to find the truth not to disgrace eachother i am sure god will lead us to truth.
