From my rapist and his family...they are Amish. Well I guess I am not, they all have FB accounts. I was contacted by one of his sisters today, I am ignoring the message.

 why did you post the link to her FB page? what exactly are you trying to accomplish? I'm trying to understand where you're coming from but, still...I see no point in doing that.

I am very aware of the differences.  I built my 1st house on the edge of an Amish community.  They actually pitched in and helped.  My best friends and neighbors were all Amish.  Many of the people in the closest town were Mennonites.  So, I am fully aware of the differences between the two.

I know this technology is not in the true Amish home or community.  But, there is nothing stopping them from sneaking to a public library and getting on a computer there.  There are always those who buck their family ways.

They are Amish. I liver in the same area as the op. I also live in an area with mennonites there are obvious differences.

Op just block them.

Quoting specialwingz:

Amish do not choose to use modern technology.  Mennonites, on the other hand, are Amish who went against the technology beliefs.  Kind of like the Episcopalians branched off of the Catholics.

The entire Amish community here has some form of technology they use. Most have phone accounts with internet, the parents are buying video games for the kids and some have TV with VCRs. Yes, in my area the Amish use some technology, not just one or two of them but most of them.
