GOVERNMENT DENIES AMISH RELIGIOUS LIBERTY – COMPELS THEM TO GET SEWER AND ELECTRICITY

Gov’t Revokes Off-Grid Amish Community’s Religious Rights, Forces Them to Use Electricity

In spite of the fact that they have harmed no one, a court is forcing an Amish family to violate their religious beliefs and use electricity.

An Amish community in Warren County has just lost a major battle against the state which is now requiring them to violate their religious beliefs and use electricity. Despite the Yoder family never causing harm to anyone by not using electricity, the government is forcing them to connect to the grid anyway.

At the heart of the Amish religion is the rejection of individualism. The Amish anti-individualist orientation is the motive for rejecting labor-saving technologies that might make one less dependent on their community. Modern innovations like electricity might spark a competition for status goods which is in direct conflict with the Amish way of life. Therefore, they reject it.

While the Amish lifestyle may seem odd to others, the fact that it causes no harm should mean that no one should be able to force them to change. Sadly, that is not the case.

The Yoder family lives entirely off-grid. This off-grid religious lifestyle includes the use of a self-composting toilet—an “old-fashioned privy”—that did not require electricity or running water.
