Quakers in the News

There are lots of stories in the news today about Quakers “allowing” same-sex marriages.  You don’t often read about Quakers in the mainstream press, although I’m not sure the focus entirely on same-sex marriages is a good thing.

Anyway when I looked into the story in more detail, I found lots of general information on the British Yearly Meeting website and this link to an article in the Guardian. There is a lot of discussion at the end of the article on whether Quakerism is any different to other forms of religion, which is worth a read.
