Last week we discussed Amish excommunicated from the Parke County, Indiana community. In the video clips posted we viewed a few snippets from an interview with Elam Fisher, imprisoned for driving without a license.

In the full interview video below, Elam explains why he thinks he shouldn’t be in prison, his experience among the other inmates, and what guides him.

The driver’s license requirement is something we accept and take for granted, so it is interesting to listen to someone who challenges that basic assumption, even if you do not necessarily agree.  Unsurprisingly, Elam seems guided by a deep conviction.

What do you think?
