* My newest piece for The Good Men Project has been published, addressing Amish historical trauma: Trauma and Trump: The Rise of Amish Authoritarianism. PLEASE NOTE: The Amish man who issued the apology to Israel does not speak for the Old Order Amish, I am told his church is an offshoot. One of the problems within the Amish is there is no clear structure like say the Roman Catholic Church.
It is my hope the Amish (and offshoot branches) address historical trauma to begin healing. As James Baldwin notes: People are trapped in history and history is trapped in them.
I recently sat down with The Forbidden Apple Podcast to discuss LGBTQ+ Amish issues, which will debut in 2 Sundays!
