New York Mess Continues; Lancaster Amish Expansion....

Town officials in Morristown, New York continue to stand their ground in their clash with local Swartzentruber Amish over local building code ordinances.  I'm just scratching my head at why the town is so zealous in their enforcement.  I think if I were a non-Amish person living in Morristown, New York I'd be furious that my elected officials were bankrupting the town treasuring chasing a group of people who's very religion collides with such codes.  Where is common sense?  I know some disagree with me, but, personally, I think the town should just drop the issue.  Sheesh.  Click here to read the latest.

The trend in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania has generally been for suburbia to gobble up every inch of available arable land, forcing squeezed Amish farmers out.  Well, there is at least one corner of the county where the Amish presence is actually gaining a foothold.  Three cheers for them!

I was looking at the population of Morristown, it's only got about 450 people and it says that they are all rural. If you figure the poplulation of 11 Amish families that could be like a fourth of the village's poplulation.  I agree with you Kevin, the village should just drop the issues.

To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Titus 2:5
