What goes, "clippity-clop, clippity-clop, BANG BANG, clippity-clop?"

Phoenix when you can't dance, go to town, have a car, buy from
the limited, go online, have a beer that's a tough life.

I say let 'em give it to ya up the you know what occasionally. they deserve SOME joy in their lives.

Psssst....don't let the Baptists know however.

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?
