In 1656, Thomas Winterton wrote an Anti-Quaker tract entitled "The chasing the young Quaking Harlot Out of the City: Or a turning the Quakers dark side into the light, wherein is plainly discovered a twofold design against the publick peace, one by their doctrine, the other by their sword..." He goes on for another twenty words or so, but I won't.
See, back in the 1650's when Quakerism was young, Quakers were a radical sort. They'd go into churches and disrupt services. They'd scream in the streets. They had visions. They refused to behave like sensible, law-abiding citizens and got themselves beat up and imprisioned on a regular basis. They were radical religious freaks and we love them for it.
Who are we? We're upstanding Quaker ladies with a tendency to piss people off. Maybe not so much as to get our tounges branded, but we're working on it.
