"* Baptism of youths occurs anywhere from age 16 into the early 20s. While parents and others may try to persuade them to choose the Amish lifestyle, the decision ultimately lies with the individual.We try to persuade them but we dont feel anyone can be forced to be a Christian, Barkman said."
The Amish have a very ugly heritage regarding the issue of their adherents choosing their faith. The Amish church was founded on the egregious acts of a leader who met in secret with a few select followers and expelled everyone else. Until the Amish come to terms with this malicious act that birthed them, they will never get a handle on the abusive nature of the "persuasion" that is exacted on those choosing to be Amish.
