More Horses Die In Amish Country
25 Jan 2015
Religious sects can be judged by their treatment of women, children, animals, mother earth

Yet another horse has been sacrificed on Amish roads as the sect continues to consider them collateral damage in car and truck crashes. Slowmoving carriages can literally not be seen around bends in some of the hillier areas. Puppy mills continue in Ohio and Pennsylvania Amish communities. Their treatment of cows and pigs is as brutal
as any other slaughter operation. Amish manufacture of wood furniture contributes to the world's deforestation. It is interesting that many Amish oppose electricity but not gas.

Women have few rights.

"Belts, gloves, ties, sneakers are forbidden. Amish clothes are handmade and usually of a dark fabric. Coats and vests are fastened with hooks and eyes but shirts have buttons (it is a myth that the Amish shun buttons). Men’s trousers must not have creases or cuffs. Married men must grow their beards. Mustaches are forbidden. Amish women wear no patterned clothing or jewelry. They are not permitted to cut their hair. The length of clothing, like dresses, is strictly governed by the Ordnung of the community."
