Can you go a day without being sarcastic?

Can you go a day without being sarcastic?:

Roger Vincent Jasaitis explains why we might want to avoid sarcasm: “There is another part of modern speech that goes by without much notice. It is sarcasm, the use of language which on the face of a situation appear to be appropriate, but is meant to be understood as meaning the opposite of what is said, usually in a negative or destructive way. Sarcasm is ridicule.”

AFSC, race, and Quaker exceptionalism in early 20th century :

Friends deserve tremendous praise for taking unpopular stands and working for interracial equality throughout their history, but that does not make them flawless heroes or even all that different from their contemporaries.

There Is Only Love or Fear

There Is Only Love or Fear:

From Amy Outlaw:

There is only love or fear. One can be in-love, or in-fear. The “powers that be”, the systems of domination that keep recreating themselves for at least the last 5000 years maintain their power over us to the extent that they cause us, humans, to exist in-fear instead of in-love.

Public Witness

Public Witness:

From Julie Rudd of Wilmington Friends in Ohio:

Imagine, if Ivory soap bars were dropped from the studio ceilings every time someone on television suggested that God is in favor of bombing people back to the Stone Age, or concocting increasingly depraved methods of torturing other human beings.’
