Stupidest Thing I’ve Read Today

A guy who thought Shakers banned dancing.

Dude. Shakers did prayer-dancing as an integral part of their sect. Before that, they just shook around and whirled a lot. Anyway, inspired prayerful/ecstatic movement was their thing.

So yeah, if there were a Shaker version of Footloose, it would be about some crazy rebellious kid who wanted to be a 19th century couch potato. (And who also snuck off to kiss girls, probably.)
