It's possible you could safely rack it all from underneath, but I leave that call up to you. Personally, I'd be worried about any bit of mold sinking back into the beer and coming along for the ride when I racked. An active fermentation has probably kept all the mold bobbing on the surface, but mold is one of a few things that would likely cause me to dump a batch.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)
