I always wanted to be a Nontheist Friend, and wondered if anyone has any stories to share.

My great grandparents were Quakers, they've since passed on though.

Living in Pennsylvania, I've met a few Quakers. Though they were the evangelical types, they were incredibly nice and sincere folk. Very similar in most regards to the majority of the Amish that I've met, but much more outgoing and sociable.

Nathanael Greene was a Quaker and one of the best generals of the American Revolution. Also the character Cpt. Ahab in Moby Dick was a Quaker perhaps the reason they are non-violent is them choosing to spare the world from conquest.

If you come show some courtesy, some sympathy, and some taste.

Ahab seemed pretty violent towards that whale.

Aren't Quakers supposed to be pacifists?
