I knew someone who's uncle was a CO. She said he went to a white congregation in WV and was met with such racism he actually refused to serve it! I was a bit stunned because this isn't ancient history---I asked how they handled it. She said they sent a white CO there!
No, this org can't claim to be special nor can it claim to be true in any way. Often the world has better morals than it does. If they didn't claim to be so special and unique, then we could give them the benefit of "that's how society was" bs. But they are ABOVE society, so they don't get that out. They were just as hateful as everyone around them. They did not stand up and say "wait, society is wrong---we can't do this!" No---but the Quakers did!
