CRAP !!
Just the opposite.
The Amish are an ethno-religious group that is often considered to be
related to or descended from the Mennonite church. Both are considered to be
Anabaptist denominations which are a group of Protestant Christian churches
that came about in the 16th century. The term Anabaptist refers to the
rebaptism of adults who had been baptized while they were babies, a practice
seen in the Roman Catholic Church. While the Amish and the Mennonites are
similar, the Amish follow much stricter rules and have not urbanized nor
integrated themselves into mainstream culture in the same fashion as the
Mennonites.
