AS LONG AS THEY'VE THOUGHT THROUGH THEIR POSITION CAREFULLY
Pacifists can logically support...
Killing an innocent baby's okay but defending yourself in war isn't??
People are pacifists for one or some of these reasons:
non-religious belief in the sanctity of life
practical belief that war is wasteful and ineffective
get it but...
Feel that the teachings of Jesus are meant to be taken with the utmost seriousness as a guide for daily living
Believe in obeying the laws of the state whenever possible, and whenever those laws do not go against the plain teaching of the Bible and the leadings of the Spirit
Some Quaker Don'ts...
Believe that some people are created "good" and that other people are "naturally" bad
Serve communion or practice other special sacraments such as baptism, confession, etc
Require people to sign or agree to a creed or statement of belief as a condition for membership
Take oaths in court, or take any kind of loyalty oath or pledge of allegiance
Believe the laws of the state are superior to the laws of God; Quakers have often gone to prison, or suffered for their beliefs
Try to "keep up with the Joneses" or live at the same standard as most Americans
Decide church business by voting; there is no "majority" or "minority" in a Quaker meeting. If the meeting is not united on a decision, Friends wait and pray until they are united
Try to live more simply and use fewer luxuries than most other people, out of respect for the needs of others and the environment, and because too many possessions take our hearts away from God
Work actively for peace in every area of life, from the family to international relations
Believe in telling the truth at all times, no matter what the cost

Although outsiders usually regard them as a Christian denomination, not all Quakers see themselves as Christians; some regard themselves as members of a universal religion that (for historical reasons) has many Christian elements.
Now for the BIG question...
ARE QUAKERS EVEN CHRISTIANS??
Tolerance is part of the Quaker approach to life, so Quakers are willing to learn from all other faiths and churches.
Quakers are members of a group with Christian roots that began in England in the 1650s.
Today the majority of Quakers no longer practice in plain dress

Former U.S. Presidents:
Famous American with Quaker roots...
"Be ye wise as serpents and harmless as doves"
“Thou shall not murder”
"Turn from evil and do good, seek peace and pursue it"
“Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you”
“Blessed are the peacemakers”
“Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him. With that, one of Jesus’ companions reached for his sword, drew it out and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear. ‘Put your sword back in its place,’ Jesus said to him, ‘
for all who live by the sword will die by the sword
.’ Enough of this, stop it!”
