11. I don't have any issues with Mennonites or the Amish..........
I read in another thread that some pacifist churches (namely the Quakers, the Brethren and the Mennonites) were preparing their young men to be conscientious objectors in case the draft is re-instated in the US.

Anyway, I was wondering if the reason the Amish weren't mentioned is because they also Mennonites. Just curious.
