I'm a QUAKER?!?!?!?!?!?! What the heck? I thought I was Wiccan! Well, I answered "none of the above" for a lot of questions since I believe other things or believe in combinations of the answers. Hmmm. Hey, but at least I'm not a Jehovah's Witness. Or Catholic, even though I went to Catholic school for a little over 2 years and I have several Catholic friends (they're open-minded though).

My ancestor, Mary Dire, was hung for being a Quaker. There's a book about her, but I don't know what it's called. My mom read it though. Apparently her death (she was the only woman among the Quakers that hung) inspired the eventual religious freedom laws in the USA. When my mom was telling me this, she also said that Oliver Cromwell is an ancestor. Apparently I have several famous ancestors (Obediah Bruen, who partially founded Rhode Island... Barbara Bush is also a descendant, so guess who I'm related to? Also, apparently on my dad's side I'm a descendant of a famous Duke, but I don't remember his name). Woohoo. Anyway.... quakerism. I agree with many of their beliefs, but I also disagree with some. It happens. I'm still Wiccan though. Ha!

I'm starving. Time for lunch.
