What do Muslims Believe? A Crash Course in Islam

Genderbread Person Part 3: Biological Sex

Nothing summarizes our discussion more today than the famous scene from Kindergarten Cop where a little boy respectfully raises his hand to speak and waits to be called upon. His words of wisdom for the class that he so ardently and patiently waited to share? “Boys...
