It must have a meaning, just what I do not know. The women never cut their hair, I know Pentecostals that are like that too.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 94505

It appears to be a matter of choice..

"The Amish clothes encourage humility and separation from the world. The Amish clothing becomes an expression of their faith. The Amish believe their women and girls should dress modestly in fabric of solid colors to not draw attention to themselves. The dresses should have long sleeves and full skirts to cover their knees. There are some Amish communities that prohibit buttons and only hooks and eyes are allowed to close clothing. They wear an apron and their heads are covered with a prayer covering. They never cut their hair and their hair is tied in a bun. The prayer head coverings vary between married women and single girls. The black prayer head coverings signify a married woman and single girls usually wear white. Amish women are not allowed to wear jewelry. Men and boys wear dark-colored suits, straight-cut coats without lapels, broad fall trousers, suspenders. Their shirts are also a solid color, their shoes and socks are always black and upon their head they wear either a black hat or a straw brimmed hat. Married men grow beards while single men are not allowed to even have mustaches and remain clean shaven. There are some communities who do allow young unmarried men to grow a beard after he has been baptized".

Re: Question: How Come Amish Men Do Not Have Mustaches
well i dont think that answered the question. It's because they think mustaches are military. Nevermind the fact that mustaches are no more specific to the military than wearing a hat, or clothes for that matter. Actually there stuff in general makes sense if it's to keep things simple, this one however doesn't make sense.

They shave their mustaches because in the 18th and 19th centuries, military men wore mustaches, and the "plain folk" are pacifists.

Re: Question: How Come Amish Men Do Not Have Mustaches
I used to live in Amish country ner Plain City, OH. I was told by an Amish farmer that there is a Bible verse that says that that after marrying a man will have a beard on the jaw line. The quote didn't mention a mustache, so only a beard is permitted. Sorry, someone with a concordance will have to look up the verse.

I can't give you an exact reason for it, all I know is it's tradition. Unmarried men are prohibited from having a beard and once married are required to grow a beard without the mustache.

Anababtist sects--the Amish, and Mennonites--shun ornamentation--including wedding rings.
Men grow beards when they get married.
They shave the mustache because in central Europe, where they emigrated here from, the Prussian army wore mustaches, and they were oppressed by the government there for being different, and pushed around by the army.
They wish to look different, with their traditional zipperless clothing, head coverings for women, modest plain dress, no jewelry or makeup.

Its almost similiar to the Orthodox Jews isn't it with having a beard after thee is married. As for the women being plain looking they find that in the Bible too. Muslims too have their women also with long dresses and wearing black.

 Quoting: starlight afar

You can't be serious comparing Muslims to the Amish, like apples and oranges I think. The Muslim women have little freedom, if any, they are more alinged with personal property. I am guessing that this camparison is to the radical element of Islam that holds it's primary objective to exterminate all infidels, as Americans, they consider us infidels, lower that vile animals as the Amish are about love and passivism, moderate clothing with decorum as the center of interaction is polar opposite from deneaning and degradation actions upon all women.

I am lost with this response.

I grew up Old Order Mennonite and was very familiar with the Amish. This poster is full of BS. They are very similar to Islam. Women are considered lower and while not property they are certainly controled by the man. This would either be their father before marriage and then after marriage the husband. This is a central tenant of these groups. They get this from Corinthians 13 where the order of the sexes and the headcovering for women is talked about.

Too much inbreeding. The amish have sadly developed terrible genetic diseases of their very own. Either they'll have to start encouraging outsiders to join them or they'll eventually all die out.

I like them. They go to the library to surf the net, hee hee.

Yes interesting... but your name is Mr R I BS.

Before atheism and new ageism, the Christians used to cover themselves.

As for mustache, you cannot kiss a woman with one.
Read - for thy sustainer is the most bountiful one, who has taught the use of the pen, taught man what he did not know!
Nay verily man becomes grossly overweening, whenever he believes himself to be self-sufficient: for behold unto thy sustainer all must return.

Maybe because their fashion sense ended when the Lincoln beard was in.

To me, I never understand dressing from 100 years ago. it was just a fashion trend. Why stop there? Why not wear the medieval over dress?
