Fox's aim was to inspire people to hear and obey the voice of God and become a community "renewed up again in God's image" by living the principles of their faith.

Fox believed that everyone should try to encounter God directly and to experience the Kingdom of Heaven as a present, living reality. He objected to the hierarchical structure and the rituals of the churches of his time, and rejected the idea that the Bible was always right.

But Fox went even further. He argued that God himself did not want churches. Churches were either unnecessary to get to God, or an obstruction (Fox often referred to churches unkindly as "steeple-houses"). Since believers should have a direct relationship with God, no one (priests, for example) and nothing (like sacraments) should come in between.

Not surprisingly, these views infuriated the mainstream churches, and Quakers were persecuted in Britain on a large scale until 1689.

Quaker missionaries arrived in the USA in 1656. They were persecuted at first, and four were executed.

However the movement appealed to many Americans, and it grew in strength, most famously in Pennsylvania which was founded in 1681 by William Penn as a community based on the principles of pacifism and religious tolerance.

let's look at the source of the Ha! Ha! Guy - a denture ad from the turn of the last century.

Long before George Washington suffered with his false teeth, people were looking for ways to replace their missing teeth.

As far back as 700bc, the Etruscans were making false teeth from ivory and whale and hippopotamus bone fitted into gold bridgework.

Later methods were not as sophisticated. In the 1500s, false teeth carved from bone were tied to the remaining teeth with silk. Often only the silk was tucked into the holes between teeth. For those with no teeth, anchoring false teeth was next to impossible.

Following the Battle of Waterloo, some dentists had the idea to use teeth from the dead soldiers as a source of dentures for the living. This method proved to be not only disgusting but a failure because the teeth would rot and fall out of the bridgework.

Fortunately for the toothless, French dentist Dubois de Chement and pharmacist Duchateau invented a hard-baked, rot-proof set of porcelain dentures in the late 1700s. Italian dentist Giusseppangelo Fonzi created the single porcelain tooth on a pin and attached to a metal plate in 1808.

Mass marketing of dentures began in the early 1800s. One of the greatest improvements to dentures came in 1839 when Charles Goodyear invented vulcanized rubber. This rubber was cheap and flexible making the false gum fit the mouth properly. When less painful tooth extraction became possible, the number of dentures sold increased dramatically.

Dental innovations like putting fluoride in drinking water, regular dental visits and improved dental hygiene reduced the number of people needing dentures, though many people still rely on this invention.

I understand that but I still want pics of real laughing Quakers, although "He" is not a Quaker, I think we're stuck with it.
