Last night i saw this thing on tv about the Amish.
I admired how they live in comunuties seperate from the rest of the world. Their kids were victims of a mass school shooting. I sympasized and admired how they made a point of giving solace to the family of the perp.
This was a close one, but i even sided w them in their conflict w the state when they decided not to send their kids to public school past eighth grade. I probably differ w most people here in thinking that statism is a greater evil than theism. But anyway.
I did side w the state tho , if i am understanding this dispute correctly, when the Amish decided to not install smoke detectors in their public buildings. Apaerently they believe fires are gods will. And it is sinfull to opposse this even w children. Also they are quite sure these children are in heaven and so in a better place. I have no problem w any competent adult making this decision for themselves. But when this desicion leads to children dieing, i have to side w the nanny state as distastcull as that is for me.
This was not mentioned in the entire show. But i did not once see a single black person among the Amish, nor for that matter, any member of any of the other three races of man.
I am wondering if anyone knows if there is a rule against blacks like the mormons used to have. Or is it more that there is not any black person stupid enuf to join or what the explaination is .
