      I live in an Amish community as well; my next-door neighbors are Amish (an
      elder, too).
      Gerry has this completely correct. To put a slightly finer point on it, an
      Amish man would passively watch as *you* were tortured and killed, without
      lifting a hand. Jesus did not teach such a pacifism.
