I do not understand these so called "Amish" people on the reality shows. Isn't the whole point to live a simple, wholesome life in order to be closer to God? Nobody starring in Breaking Amish or Amish Mafia ever really talk about God. They just say, "Oh, you can't do that or you'll be shunned!" If you are shunned, does that mean you're also going to hell? And if the characters don't believe in an eternal afterlife, why do they continue to live that lifestyle? I guess you could say they want to be with family, but I imagine if their folks are upset about them living "English" they would be furious over them going on TV, misrepresenting their religion, and throwing friends and family under the bus... or buggy. The people on Amish Mafia are the worst though. WWJD? Probably not use blackmail to keep their weird little world sacred.
