Must Reads! October 5, 2013

‘Male and female [God] created them’. Male and female…The ‘and’ is not a binary ‘and’. Male and femalecan disclose a spectrum of varied gender identities in the same way that ‘Alpha and Omega’ discloses the whole alphabet, or how ‘from head to toe’ means the length of the whole body.
