Atheist: "What?! Theist who? Who gives a 'dam'?"
Quaker: "Thee ist a friend, despite your use of that beaver construction word."

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven
with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the Trump of God..."
After the very discouraging U.S. Presidential Election results,
a number of D.C. Quakers held a silent vigil down by the Washington Mall.

compassion, and equality.
One Quaker responded with a light smile, "But seeking the Light is Oat so simple. Not simplistic, but spontaneous and open to what is good."
