    Why do the Amish practice shunning? (April 19th, 2011 at 13:42)

    I watched ” The Shunning” on HALLMARK channel. It was very sad. Does it have any truth in it? Can you really be shunned and still live in the same home as other Amish?

      Gods Law Only

      I believe according to the bible only God has the right to punish the sinners and is not given to man.

    Spousal shunning

    Hans, it is true that you can live in the same home. Sometimes it occurs between spouses. Shunning is practiced differently in different Amish groups though. I have not seen the film though so cannot comment on the rest of it.

    Banning of Music?? (November 15th, 2013 at 01:30)

    Banning of Music??

    I’ve heard the Amish forbid any music. Not sure if this is just in church or at all times but I’d be interested in knowing this.
