Actually, it depends on where you are.  To utterly generalize, the
further west you go in the US, the more "Christ-centered" the Quakers
are.  And Kenya and other African countries have lots of "Evangelical"
Quakers (who are NOT pacifist).  But the Quaker influence on
Germantown Friends School is of the East Coast variety.

But that's a thread for another group.

Nixon being a Quaker.
