Quaker shunning or being read out of meeting
The article on Excommunication discusses the general concept of banning or shunning and has sections for the variety of this exclusionary practice among various religions including Quaker excommunication which it identifies as being "read out of meeting". However the Quaker article does not, and this seems like an oversight. In fact, there is nothing about this at all with the exception of one comment about "Quakers gone bad" being "branded a heretic" and "read out of meeting" in Talk/Archive 4.
If there is such a thing, can someone knowledgeable about this add a subsection or paragraph about this somewhere?

I found Quaker music while new page feed patrolling, and decide to see if there was any consensus in merging that article here. --I dream of horses (T) @ 06:54, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
This page is pretty long already, and the Quaker music page is not small. So, I think no. Darx9url (talk) 09:01, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
Percentage of Quakers who consider themselves Christian
The lead says "Many Friends view themselves as members of a Christian denomination." I would think that most Friends view themselves as members of a Christian denomination. Any objection to changing this? Anyone have a good source on what percentage of Friends do not consider themselves members of a Christian denomination? Darx9url (talk) 14:47, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
I agree. The word should be "most" and is common knowledge. Marteau (talk) 15:00, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
