Increasing tension over some Amish beliefs as communities grow
Umble emphasized that most Amish groups comply with ordinances. “In many Amish communities it is not an issue to have orange triangles, and in many communities they are not fighting local legislative safety issues. Many places, they are cooperating. But there are certain ultraconservative groups that feel they cannot accept any of that kind of government influence on their day-to-day lives. But these cases are not representative of all Amish and come up with the most conservative groups,” she said.
