That's pretty amazing, I used to live about 40min outside of lancaster. Those Amish are something else, very nice people. It's a lesson for all of us.
They sure know how to "walk the talk".
CNN.com - Amish grandfather: 'We must not think evil of this man' - Oct 4, 2006
"It was one of the most touching things I have seen in 25 years of Christian ministry."
Compassionate and unconditional love!
As ghandi says, "an eye for en eye leaves the whole world blind."
And if everyone followed these 2 ideas, we wouldnt have war, hunger, or 99% of evil in this world.Originally Posted by EEmain

-too bad the dirt bag killed himself, i woulda payed off a prison guard, brought in my infamous car battery and cord, and had a nice, everlasting afternoon of electroshock.
the freak shows from westboro church were planning to show up at the girls funerals. fox offered them one hour of air time to keep them away, they accepted.
Those folks are wacked. Very nice of Fox to do that. The Amish may be missing the whole "go into all the world teaching them to obey all that I have commanded" thing, but they are good peoples.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
I don't think they are missing anything. They teach by their actions which is more than can be said of others. In short, they get it.
That's the way I see it Bio.
To each their own. To debate this would step into theological/doctrinal territory and I am not interested.
I agree on the whole that these guys have it going on for the most part and hopefully we can agree to disagree on the minutia.
Okay I looked up minutia and i guess we can agree to disagree.
LOL. You crack me up.
An Amish MOD would have known what "minutia" meant. I'm sure of it.
But not Dumbish MOD. So i'm covered.
If the westboro church ever comes around RI, they better brase themselves. A whole bunch of military guys go to my gym, a lot of which are on juice. Put them in a ring with a westboro-mofo and watch the beatings.
I sent an email to those freaks. Here it is
"No, I'm not "bashing" you people, I just want a simple question answered. I am going to abide by rule #2, Any messages containing obscene, pejorative or hostile language will not be personally responded to.
Infact, I'm going to tell you folks what I agree with you on. Is god dissapointed with America. Yes, no doubt. We kill unborn children, have gay marrage, have sex out of sheer lust, to name a few.
However, what ever happened to forgiveness. "Forgive and you will be forgiven" are some of the words of christ. You are not free of sin, no one is. Christ said you will be measuered by the same stick you measure with. Did jesus ever protest prostitutes and the likes? No.
I would REALLY appreciate a responce.
Thank you for your time. "
I really want to see what they say to that.
