Split[edit]

It is split of large article "Amish" into sections as recommended by rules! Duplicate text excluded from Amish page. Alexander Roumega (talk) 11:45, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Merge Amish music[edit]

Amish music article is very short stub during five years. I think it can be moved to Amish way of life - Lifestyle and culture. Alexander Roumega (talk) 17:58, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Are they even ALLOWED to listen to music? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.119.151.233 (talk) 07:22, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Neutral Point of View Violation?[edit]

This article doesn't seem to respect the neutral point of view requirement. Statements such as "loneliness is not a problem" or "disobedience is rare" betray a point of view, and would require sources other than the Amish Society's own literature, which can be expected to take a pro-Amish stance. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.206.69.133 (talk) 01:42, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

I agree. This whole article sounds like it was written from an Amish pamphlet. There are obvious incongruencies like, "Everyone is treated equally" and in the next paragraph, "and man is the head of woman". Sorry but the statements are incompatible and whatever Wiki editor is responsible for this MESS should've seen it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.119.151.233 (talk) 08:59, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

Technology[edit]

I was expecting to find a section on technology. I understand that many Amish groups refrain from adopting it, but I've also heard of some groups reluctantly accepting cell phone use. Could this topic be introduced into the article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.203.241.55 (talk) 16:34, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

Farming? Medical?[edit]

Why no section on farming which is their biggest way of life? And how they practice organic farming and do not use medicines or vitamins on their animals. Also how their women give birth in the home and how they reject the use of pharmakeia? 2602:306:C518:62C0:290F:5E4E:7E60:2AD6 (talk) 20:20, 21 July 2012 (UTC) Also how they reject electricity and all technology associated with it. 2602:306:C518:62C0:290F:5E4E:7E60:2AD6 (talk) 20:24, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
