Percentage of Quakers who consider themselves Christian[edit]

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)

The "many" reflects a generally FGC perspective of this article, though even there a significant percentage would acknowledge Christian roots. But the vast majority of Friends world wide are part of FUM, and clearly Christian. 2605:A000:1313:4006:8816:5058:E141:62B6 (talk) 02:54, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Spelling and punctuation style[edit]

The page is an uneasy mixture of US and UK at present. Which should it be? Bmcln1 (talk) 20:37, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

That will be a matter of Wkipedia policy, I should imagine hypotaxis (talk) 10:01, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

The earliest version of the article used AmE, so per WP:ENGVAR, that's the one that should be used. Bazonka (talk) 22:48, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
With their English origins it should be in English. I'd have thought so anyway. What does the Mormon article use? GaryGill (talk) 19:04, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
