Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
I doubt one in a hundred USers has any clue what Sharia means. Something like Kosher right? https://t.co/l3GrovZm64— Kirby Urner (@thekirbster) September 22, 2016
One thing Sharia means is banking without the usual interest rates. Wouldn't it be nice to have a choice? Whitter, LA has such a bank.— Kirby Urner (@thekirbster) September 25, 2016
Given the Quaker-Sufi bridge I consider it less than surprising that Quaker banks might practice Sharia in free countries where freedom of religion is protected. That doesn't bar them from practicing not-Sharia for those not into it, i.e. it's not either/or, offer the customer more choices, isn't that what capitalism is all about? The Muslim faith formed strong bonds in the civil rights era (MLK, Malcolm X etc.) and promises to be a strongly feminist religion going forward in North America, if Portland (aka "little Beirut") is any kind of sign. Whittier (within Greater LA) ain't the only town with Quakers.
Re: Quaker Meeting in new television crime thriller -- (recent on QQ news...)
Quaker Meeting also appears in Six Feet Under, final season I think it is (?). Also remember Seven Psychopaths, the movie (a Quaker is one of the seven).

(some followup on this thread)
The good folks on QuakerQuaker (Q2) are maybe wondering if I imagine funding my partners' truck fleets from that Quaker Sharia bank headquartered in Istanbul. My answer: why not? We have Halal-compliant banking in Whittier, a Quaker town (historically: the poet John Greenleaf Whittier was a Quaker). This idea that a car might be financed in only one way is gringo-jingoistic. You might get a steep discount for buying it in bitcoin, in some schemes.
