I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

Ten Reasons Why You Probably Shouldn't Be Amish Anymore

Ten Reasons Why You Probably Shouldn't Be Amish Anymore

10. You start what you think is a really good Amish blog and your only visitors are Hutterites.

9. You are met with cold stares while attempting to discuss the latest episode of �The Sopranos� with the Elders.

8. You kind of enjoy �being out among them English�.

7. You�ve eschewed the traditional Amish beard for a �Crowder�.

6. You continually violate The Ordnung by reading the Message/Remix outloud at worship.

5. You sew shiny buttons on your shirt in a vain attempt to get shunned.

4. Yours is the only Horse Buggy in Lancaster County with airbrushed flames on the side.

3. Your Pacifism keeps interfering with your desire to become a Navy Seal.

2. You skip Eli Van Dorn�s Barn Raising to watch �Home Improvement� reruns at your Mennonite neighbor�s house.

1. Plain just doesn�t cut it anymore.
