Why I’m Converting to Islam


I think I will have to convert to Islam. First is the simple matter of convenience. It is hard for us in The West – especially if you happen to be the reviled trifecta of a straight white male – to fathom the benefits of Islamic association. With the backing of Islam you can imprison, […]
