i saw people wearing amish clothes at the grand canyon last week and i was like HOW DID THEY GET HERE
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/27/19 7:13pm ultradamno:

They could have been Mennonites, they dress similarly but get to have some modern things like cars.

I saw a documentary about people who left the Hasidic community and it reminded me of the Amish.

@ultradamno good call

During the"Vietnam Error", the authorities didn't go after the Amish even though they didn't register for the draft. But,to their credit on this issue,they asked to be arrested to show anyone who might be interested that they were ANTI-WAR!

I mean work in South Florida

Amish night riders are a hazard here in Indiana. Many times you'll see the lights on their buggies in the distance and before you know it you're right up on them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/27/19 7:17pm Phillippe Bastille:

I saw a family of Mennonites on the beach in PCB. Kind of jarring, actually
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:17pm Emily:

Hey everybody!
Vortex! That’s what the skull bar is called—thank you. And I knew there was a Coca-Cola center!
I do love the aquarium there (Kate, you’re welcome to meet me there if you waaant toooo).
And great photo, Buddha! So lovely to meet you :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/27/19 7:17pm Jeff Moore:

BTW, those having probs with the pop-up stream player: I'm seeing them too. Have contacted those who support it.

In the meantime – the direct stream links are working well for me in a standalone player.

Hi all! So good to see you all here. I'm totally rallying right now, radio is so good for your health!

@JeffMoore our hero!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/27/19 7:18pm melinda:

There are Mennonite farmers in traditional dress at my farmers market.
@queems they have common lineage. Some Mennonites don't do the traditional dress or avoidance of technology, I've known people of that branch.
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:18pm Kate:

Solar panels on Amish homes, who'd have thought, I thought the objection was to modern technology? Maybe I've missed the point.
Avatar Wed. 3/27/19 7:19pm dale:

when i go back to western ny i try to drive through amish areas just to see the laundry on the line and the folks tending their lawn by horse drawn reel mower.
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:19pm MelindafromAustin:

I’m from this area of the country. My grandma left the Amish religion when she was a teenager & became a race car driver & a pilot. Most of the Amish folks I know down there are very liberal, but traditions & ideas vary greatly. It’s important to remember that their religion is related to the Anabaptists who are huge in the areas of social justice & environmental protection. Just some food for thought.
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:20pm John from Florham Park:

@Phillipe when I was on a trip in upstate New York I stopped at Denny’s fir breakfast and they were memenoites eating there kind of blew my mind
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/27/19 7:20pm melinda:

@dale there was a guy who moved to LA to be an actor, he may have been a rapper as well. Probably the same doc.
Avatar Wed. 3/27/19 7:20pm dale:

melindafromaustin - grandma sounds so cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/27/19 7:20pm ultradamno:

For some reason I used to see Mennonites going to McDonalds a lot. Maybe it was just one family repeatedly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/27/19 7:21pm Phillippe Bastille:

@Melinda I think I would've liked your grandma.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/27/19 7:21pm Richard S:

@Kate, as I understand it (which is probably poorly), it's pretty much that they want to be "off the grid" as much as possible.
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:21pm MelindafromAustin:

@dale ... she’s one of a kind!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/27/19 7:21pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Maybe some Amish can come by Montgomery Street and do a barn raising on the main studio. You'll be up and running by sundown!

a lot of mennonites in central ny/ finger lakes area now. drive around watkins glen and you see them on buggy and bicycle.

More on the pop-up player: it's been working for me in Chrome, and in Firefox I found a new booby trap: if you click on the little letter "i" information thing to the left of the web address in the pop-up player window, look under Permissions for Autoplay sound... set to Allow.
Avatar Wed. 3/27/19 7:28pm dale:

queems - when ny farmers started going belly up they moved up from pennsylvania for the properties and cheap prices. i don't know how the taxes work for them versus non -mennonite so they may be able to make a go of things when others can't. but again - i don't know.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/27/19 7:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I wonder if any Amish have ever listened to WFMU. They'd need electricity and internet access.
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:32pm MelindafromAustin:

From what I understand Anabaptism is the root ...the Amish came from that root. The Mennonites are the branch of Amish which chose to modernize a bit more and the core Anabaptists chose to move with the times all together.
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:33pm Emily:

Thank you, MelindafromAustin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/27/19 7:33pm Jeff Moore:

Yes, I always recommend a standalone audio player like VLC for listening to our streams on a desktop computer. It's way more reliable than any player running in a web browser. And when using VLC (or iTunes, or whatever) – I recommend the "128k AAC" link as the best sounding.

And for mobile use – yes, our apps. If you're using the iOS, note that you can choose the AAC stream there as well, at least for the main WFMU stream.
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:33pm Kate:

That is TRULY scandalous!

@Ken Radio alone is generally off the table
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:34pm MelindafromAustin:

@dale you would of had a lot of competition! LoL
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:34pm MelindafromAustin:

@emily yes! For instance my grandmother was not excommunicated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/27/19 7:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

It appears that the Hutterites might have internet access: www.hutterites.org (owing to the fact that there's a web site)
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:35pm Emily:

@MelindafromAustin oh, so she wasn’t shunned?
Avatar Wed. 3/27/19 7:35pm dale:

i went to the amish museum in old chatham and going through one of the buildings i asked the guide if the decor was always as we saw it and came to know it. he said no there were lots of bright paint colors and flocked or mylar wallpaper in the house before the state took it over and renovated it it what we would have thought it should be.
Avatar Wed. 3/27/19 7:36pm kimzilla:

From my understanding they can't use musical instruments!
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:36pm Emily:

@KenfromHP oh, interesting! I hadn’t heard of the Hutterites.
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:36pm Dave from Brooklyn:

Obviously there appears to be some problems
But,on the positive side: They are anti war
There lifestyle is GREEN! If the masses did green as they do then we might have a future
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/27/19 7:38pm Richard S:

I can't think of any isolationist religious community that *didn't* have problems. Maybe some of the very first monastic communities, but after over 1000 years, we'll probably never know.
Avatar Wed. 3/27/19 7:39pm kimzilla:

Yeah, they let men come in your bedroom at night, but, hey no straws!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/27/19 7:39pm ultradamno:

I think sexual abuse claims, similar to Jehovah's Witnesses, get handled in house and shut down by church elders. 'According to one report one of the elders told a Webster County sheriff’s investigator “that it was against the Amish Rules to report child sexual abuse,”' amishamerica.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/27/19 7:39pm queems:

i'm a little weirded out at the idea of leaving one cult and immediately joining another
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:39pm Kate:

Sounds like the transition from faith to religion has worked the same in the Amish community as it has in the other faiths.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 3/27/19 7:41pm melinda:

@Richard yeah it seems like any isolationist religious community is going to have problems.
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:43pm MelindafromAustin:

I mean ...there’s lots of sexual abuse in the world in general .... but yeah, this is a problem.

I have to say I've idolized the Amish most of my life. Yet another lesson there is good an bad everywhere you go.
  Wed. 3/27/19 7:49pm MelindafromAustin:

It took my grandma many years to give kisses & hugs & express love. They’re very stoic people generally. I think it has something to do with not getting attached to the physical world.
