Why exactly did you say hello to that woman like any other man?
Oh, you see, good sir, I am a shaker, and we shakers believe all people, including women are equal.
That's just ridiculous, no man can live in such ways
Sorry, but I must beg my leave, sir.
Well, you can have your opinions, sir, but we also do not belive that property should be labelled "private"
Alas, not everyone has to agree with every opinion. Anyways, one of the most influential and notable Shakers is Mothe, who emigrated to the United States in the 1770's. She believed that God was both a male and a female at the same time. Jesus represented the male side while Ann Lee was the female embodyment of God
