That does not sound right. Something is "Amish" here.I recently did some business with local armish that had moved in the next town over in 2020. I sold them some maple supplies and stopped to drop off some plastic containers. My girlfriend was anxious to go with me to see the armish settlement.
But they had solar panels and generators running. From their house to the main road where the power lines are is 500' , maybe less. My girlfriend was very disappointed to see the modern armish.
I kind of doubt that any Amish or Mennonites will be reading OTT. I am speaking of experience with those Mennonites that I know personally. They do not even use email for personal use. The ones that I know who run a business use email only for business use, and only check it once per day. Their internet use is so limited as to be almost non-existent by modern standards. This is not to say that other congregants do not act differently. I am speaking only from the perspective of those that I know personally.Idle thought here, most of the comments above on the Amish or Mennonites are written as though they will never read them, but if some use tractors and some have cell phones, it seems plausible that some may read OTT?
You have to be sure whether you're dealing with Amish, conservative Mennonites or regular Mennonites. Of all the Amish I have ever known, they were to a man or woman some of the nicest, friendly and hard working people I have ever met. Conservative Mennonites are a lot more cliquish, but still mostly pretty nice. Your regular run of the mill Mennonites are a lot less so, and only look out for themselves, and can be pricks to deal with. A long time friend who had a business selling cabinetry and countertops to Mennonite businesses had no use for them, called them Menno-tights.Must be a different breed out there my friend, most all I have had the displeasure to deal with,,,, well lets say they think they are entitled. And thats all I will say
