Take a drive up there now and you will see amish living in NEW modern design homes and sporting the latest clothes as a result of the money from the ENGLISH drillers!

Hypocrites

Most only shun technology and the english until MONEY is to be made from them

If not for the almighty dollar from the english, Sugar Creek, Walnut Creek, and Berlin would cease to exist and their motels and bed and breakfasts would go bust

And anybody who has lived around areas where amish have chopped down trees would know that they are NOT good stewards of the land and care very little for the environment

Amish dont have 'man caves'... I can respect the ways and views of Amish people. They do no harm, and dont press themselves onto anyone. Nonviolent ways are good for the farm, but, an Amish person would have trouble in our modern cities with all the crime rate we have. GOD Bless each Amish for thier Beliefs and ways.

I wish you well...
