    Only 2 Shakers left!

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/one...ETy?li=BBnb7Kz

    One of the last three remaining members of the dwindling Shaker sect died on Monday.
    Sister Frances Carr died at the Shaker community at Sabbathday Lake in New Gloucester, Maine, “after a brief battle with cancer,” according to a statementon the community’s website.
    Bet they are rethinking the decision to be celibate.

    The Shakers practice celibacy, in addition to pacifism, equality of the sexes and communal ownership of property.
    Equality of the sexes?! That did it!

    You mean all those people in Shaker Heights weren't Shakers?

    If they practiced celibacy how did they make it this far?
    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
