Episode 33 - The Religious Society of Friends (((The Quakers)))

In this episode I discuss the Quaker involvement in society from their founding in the mid-17th century by George Fox, the founding of Pennsylvania by William Penn, and their influence over other societal functions up to the current day. I also discuss briefly other such breakaway "Christian" groups.
