Do you think living an Amish lifestyle is great, or keeping young people from the real world as it is today (technology and all)? My concern would be that simple though the way of life is, the children are incredibly sheltered from basic realities of life on earth as it is today. Having recently followed the TV series 'Breaking Amish' it became very apparent how unprepared for the 'real world' these youngsters were, plus the fact they were shunned by their families simply for choosing to try living in 'the real world' for themselves.

Very good answer Nicole, not too long at all.
Lol, I actually find the smell or horses quite pleasant, and even their poo is only digested grass and grain so not an unpleasant smell (at least to me). Horses as transport are one of things I really like about the Amish lifestyle.
Jesus was crucified because the Priests were jealous. So, it is basically impossible to secure a society that is unspoiled, unselfish, not self-righteous, and nonviolent. Man is the master of his destiny so when violence occurs man created it.
Correct. When immoral actions are permitted to be accepted as moral, the moral individual draws suspicion. Prov 24 Follow thou not evil men, desire thou not to be with them. For the soul of them bethinketh ravens, and their lips speak frauds.

I thumbed your comment down because you're basically telling those raped Amish women that left their family....their reality is questionable therefor a lie maybe...It saddens me that you would question their honesty...
I think what she's trying to say is that the show itself is questionable as far as it's reality. A lot of shows fabricate or make things up in an attempt to get more viewers. If you've ever seen "Amish Mafia" its a perfect example of that.
I think I'd like to know from Maggie Bennett herself if this is what she really means. No one fabricated the fact that Amish women get raped while the men get away with this. This is real and horrible.
I'm well aware of the fact they do. I never claimed that was fabricated.
Has anyone noticed that the media is attempting to discredit all religions except Islam. They pick on the Amish, Catholics, Mennonites, Jews, and all Christians. The only safe religions in society are Islam and Atheist. It saddens me completely.
I worked in show business for years and TV production for five and there is nothing real about reality TV.....it is entertainment. I do not watch it don't know about rapes...I hate reality TV.
Maggie Bennett. I'm so sorry you are in denial of an important and accurate fact. If you have not cooperated in these series then you can hardly dismiss 'this reality' to just be entertainement. Don't watch it if you hate it so much I'd say.
Escobana, i commented on whether or not they are ready for the real world. I think they are. You mentioned rape not me and then blindly marked me down? Rape happens unfortunately in every class of people. You jumped to very wrong conclusions.
Read your own comments and find out who's wrong or right. "There's nothing real about reality TV."? That's why I 'openly' thumbed you down in the first place. Even Nicole tries to understand what you mean. You keep ignoring my point. As you wish...
