That is what I was thinking as I started reading your post. My dad is a fundamentalist/charismatic. I remember him saying some things about Quakers that demonstrated he doesn't have any respect for them as far as their Christianity is concerned. I wouldn't be able to quote any Quaker writings to my dad because he wouldn't find them credible.
