    (1525- )
    Formed as Anabaptists in Switzerland
    A Christian religious group who live in settlements in 22 states in the U.S. and Ontario, Canada
    They stress humility, family and community, and separation from the outside world
    Oppose infant baptism, and baptize at around 18
    Many Amish were killed for practicing adult baptism during the 16th century
    William Penn invited the Amish to practice their religion in religious tolerant America
    Despite Europe riding itself of all Amish since the 1700's, their primary language is still German
    Stressing humility is not necessary when junior high takes care of that just fine.
    They ride everywhere by horse drawn cart in the attempt to make a point, then they go to Wal-Mart (Hello?! Can you say hypocritical?)
    They shun electricity and therefore will never know the wonderful convenience of the microwave or the sinful fun of the Sony PlayStation.
    When they get angry at a member of their group, they 'shun' them by turning their backs on that person and pretend they don’t exist (kind of like when a five year old sticks his fingers in his ears).
    Traditional Amish weddings start at 4 A.M. in the morning, and that is only after all the cows have been milked.
    They purposely only go to school through the 8th grade (Supreme Court-Wisconsin v. Yoder - 1972).
    They have strict roles for men (workers) and women (homemakers).
    They make their own dairy products and matching outfits.
    The Amish women make nifty quilts.
    They are communal, and will help each other in time of need.
    They maintain customs and traditions for centuries.
    They have virtually 100% employment.
    They will never read this.
