Lol. The Amish here use a gas powered generator which powers an electric compressor for air tools. I tried talking them into just plugging into my house to save gas, but they wouldn't have it. Nothing I said got through to them that it's no different.

That shirt is classic. I've been to enough gun auctions and shows in the York/Lancaster area and seen more than a few Amish toting ARs. At first it's an eye-opener. Later you just get used to it. I like that everyone in PA treats black rifles like they should: just another tool for a job.

The prohibition has to do with “the wire”—whether phone or electrical—coming in from the infrastructure of “the English”.

“The wire” is seen as the pathway of the devil, thus the use of animal-driven power, the use of generators and even cell phones, which have the blessing of the elders because there is no physical wire connected to the world.

It all depends on the local elders where they draw the line. I know Amish that can use Diesel to power compressors but not Gas, and some that use cell phones.

Though not at all applicable, I'd like one position to be 'schtumpig'
