Thread: Amish people, an interesting bunch

    Couple of things, there are many sects of Anabaptists, for example, Mennonites are as diverse as Southern Baptists from United Methodists. I suspect Big would support some of the Anabaptists publications like SoJourners. I know much of this because my affiliation as a pastor is with the MB church, and I speak at various Mennonite Church groups, including GC or what is now known as MCUSA of which my daughter will soon be named Communications Director for the denomination.

    As to being able to find a Amish person on a message board, it may not be as difficult as you think, especially if that Amish young adult is going throuh Ramspringa. I have in fact found many Amish individuals on message boards, even having MySpace or Facebook pages.

    I read a book recently called The Reformers and Their Stepchildren. It was almost exclusively about the anabaptists, even before they were called anabaptists (throughout church history). Excellent book.

    An area I will agree with my friend here, but will also disagree. Luther, Calvin and others who also upheld the martyrdom of Anabaptists were also those strongly respected within certain sectors of the religious community.

    I'm not following your disagreement. Luthur and Calvin were both Protestants and part of the union with church/state. Anabaptists were never part of church/state. I don't think we disagree here at all.
