The new president…

The new president of the Islamic Society of North America is a woman. Her name is Ingrid Mattson, and she is a professor of Islamic Studies and was a Canadian-born Roman Catholic.

This is pretty exciting, and I think it’s a good thing. I hope that it won’t turn out to be a devisive (schism-causing, I’m sure it will divide people) issue.
