Amish Question

'Am thinking we have ex-Amish DataLoungers. I know you can be shunned for leaving after baptism. If someone after Rumspringa decides not to join the church are they also shunned?

Not Amish (or even ex-Amish), but I know this: if you leave before baptism, you're not formally shunned.

You're obviously not going to be part of the community any more (and that's probably a huge deterrent), but you're still able to visit, and join in big events like weddings.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
