    That seems overly complicated, many of the Amish in southern Indiana just have the electricity hooked up to the barn/shed on their own property and pay their bills with their smart phones.

    There are different "sects" with different "rules".

    Big deal.

    Local bishops make the rules. So are very permissive, some not so much.

    My Amish neighbor has a state of the art cabinet shop complete with CNC routers, phone line, and internet service. Oh, and a $60K bass boat that he finds Englishmen to tow to the lake for him.

    This.

    I live in Amish country and I have several Amish friends. One of them has a electric run through his house, a water bed and a man cave off the side of one of his barns with a big screen TV where the family watches Bears games every Sunday after church.

    Every one of them I know has a cell phone.

    Bingo! Same around here.

    Around here they all have cell phones. Its ok since there is no wire connecting it to the world. Ironically, lots more bad stuff on cell phones than youd ever get on a landline. We have Amish, Mennonite, and Baptists!!!!
