About the Amish:
Amish families still remain faithful to their religion. You will see these people still wearing handmade clothing, long beards, and riding along the roadsides in their horse and buggy.
The Mennonites broke off from the Amish. The Mennonites now drive motor vehicles, rather than horse and buggy. The two separate themselves by wearing differing clothing, i.e. the Mennonite women will wear white head coverings, while the Amish women will wear black. Still, the two remain to agree on particular religious beliefs. Their culture and religions background is to be respected. Therefore, if you travel to Mennonite and Amish lands take care not to use profane languages, or act in ways that would demonstrate disrespect to their beliefs.
