What happens when a columnist for the Salt Lake City Tribune heads to Amish country? Well, he pens a column. Keep in mind, this guy is attempting to be tongue and cheek and if you read it with that in mind, it's a decent column. I did cringe a little when he makes some blatantly incorrect observations (I would quibble with his assertion, for instance, that "most Amish are armed." It is true that there are variations within the pacifist Amish church about gun ownership. Some fully embrace hunting, but others vehemently are against any type of gun ownership...so "most" is simply in accurate.) Click here for this interesting read. There's really very little in common among the two religions other than in some sociological senses, but not much theological common ground.
