I get sick and tired of those Amish people anyways. They don't have to pay taxes, or have fishing or hunting licenses. They get to do whatever they want because they run a cult, and it's all tax free. Plus their daughter's don't shave anything. Makes Harry from Harry and the Henderson's looked well trimmed. I swear to god they do.
Well finally

The question is what laws should they obey? I don't have a problem with their men and women not having TVs, the internet, cell phones. I don't have a problem with natural living, and not shaving when it really doesn't matter. I would rather have some neighbors like that than tatooed people who shave from the top of their heads to their toes and in between, swigging beer, chewing tabacco, chugging down pork, fried foods, etc..

I just wish they would practice what they preach, what Jesus preached and do good to the needy, and not have a closed community where we can't learn from one another.

To me the Amish have proven that when push comes to shove, or when they imagine that it does, then they are quite ready willing and able to set aside Bible principles that they find a burden or find difficult to apply because they go contrary to their personal opinion or emotions.

In such situatins they can be just as scheming, vindictive, cruel, as anyone else who doesn't claim christianity.

The only difference I see is that they dress differently and go around posturing sanctimoniously.

But when it comes to harboring resentmnts,and lying in order to mask their real vidndictive intentions when being purpsefully rude, even though those intentions are as clear as day-they are up their with the best of sinners who don't claim Christianity.
