    Not all the Amish are the same. There are truly hardcore orthodox versions all the way to those who have "accommodated" some aspects of English life, like cell phones.

    There is probably a little more to this story. Perhaps the community has a law regarding septic usage so all are required to connect and "privies" are no longer allowed if a sewer system is available. They might be saying that one property owner is just like the neighbor in regards to sewage disposal.

    Sort of like how it might be helpful to study the Talmud before calling out Orthodox Jews for some aspect of their culture that you don’t understand.
    I had the exact same thought.

    Since the Amish run huge, incredibly cruel puppy mills I am happy anytime something happens that they don't like. They are supposedly so religious and yet they treat dogs as if they have no feelings and deserve to be tortured their entire lives. I hope that there is a special very hot place awaiting their arrival.

    I just think anyone should be able to have a privy in their back yard. It didn't take anything but a few decades of "progress" to render simple ways to manage natural functions as not only obsolete, but illegal. Silly. this isn't the Ganges. This is rural PA.

    What percentage of the Amish run cruel puppy mills?

    There is no way to know for sure since there are 10k puppy mills in the US both licensed and unlicensed. Since many are unlicensed there is no way to be sure of the numbers. I used to live in that part of the country and the Amish are among the worst offenders. Any more questions you can look up yourself.

    “The Amish”. “They”. Hateful.
