Isn't that what they're there for?

There are different kinds of Amish. Some Amish consider it okay to travel by airplane or car-- PROVIDED that they aren't the ones actually 'using'/operating the technology.
I'm aware of a group called the Hutterians, who split off from the Amish and have farming colonies in North Dakota & surrounding states. Unless I am very mistaken, they accept most technology for farming and livestock raising purposes; but still eschew technology at home and in their personal lives.
Mennonites have theology similar to the Amish, but can have modern conveniences. At least, I know several urban Mennonites that are indistinguishable from mainstream Americans.
and then there are Mennonites and then there are Mennonites - Old Order, Reform etc etc.
I went to uni in a Mennonite area just west of here (in fact my uni was a Mennonite college when it started out 50+ years ago) - lots of variants of what was permissible.
Making fun of the Amish/Mennonites is no less rude/ugly than making fun of Catholics/Jews/Muslims. Ugly.
If a court finds an Amish person guilty of murder, can they give him the electric chair? Or do they have to let him sit in a non-electric chair until he dies?
