Showing off my ignorance

As I watched this news clip this morning, I found myself thinking. (Always a dangerous pastime.) And I realized there's a lot of room for religious diversity in America, and I'm thankful for the church I'm in. Apart from the fact that to join the church of the Nazarene one only needs to agree to "Jesus, Son of God, Saviour," I'm not good at conformity.

Reasons I'd make a terrible Amish person:
I'm posting this on the Internet.
After this I'm going to check my e-mail, watch a couple of videos, and sing along with the radio as I drive to work.
The bonnets are cute, but I'd have a really hard time growing my hair out.
I love buttons!
I can't sew.
Just because I know how to cook on a wood stove doesn't mean I want to.
Attending school only until eigth grade is so 1800s... wait a second...
If orange traffic triangles on the buggy are "too showy," I'm guessing glitter is off the list. (Kudos to the neighbor for politely and concisely explaining to the reporter why this was an issue important enough that people were willing to invoke their right to civil disobedience and go to jail over.)
Add more in the comments if you think of them!

The irony of the situation, the county will have to supply them with GREY jumpsuits, as there have been rulings saying the standard orange ones conflict with religious teaching... So.

Buttons? I didn't realize there was anything about buttons. And this is one majorly strict sect, most have allowed things that are hand crank, or battery operated, and the vast majority allow the orange triangle just because it is safe.

(I keep wondering if one of the rappers that wears as much 'bling' as possible were to meet up with one of these types, what would happen?) ;D
