New Reality Show ‘Amish Mafia’ On Discovery Channel [VIDEO + POLL]
With reality shows being "the norm" these days, it's no surprise that more and more are popping up every month on television. But the latest reality show on Discovery, is a little shocking. Okay, we've gotten a little sneak peek into the secret community of the Amish, with the reality show "Breaking Amish". But this new show just seems crazy - "Amish Mafia".
First of all, the word mafia and Amish in the same sentence just seems wrong on so many levels, but for an Amish mafia to actually exists is just nuts!
Starting this week we will all get to watch the enforcers of the religious sect uphold the law of the land with the new series “Amish Mafia.” The show's sneak preview is set for tomorrow night and intends to expose the secluded community's secrets.
Lebanon Levi is the leader of Mennonite men who are the so-called Mennonite “mafia", who resolves disputes in Pennsylvania Dutch country.
But my question is: aren't the Amish and Mennonites extremely secluded. The sect usually likes to be let alone and not bothered. So if that's so, wouldn't you think sharing secrets with the world like having a "mafia" be a No-No?
When I was a teenager, I went to Pennsylvania with my church's youth group and the Amish didn't even want you to look their way or take pictures of them. If that's true, should they really be apart of giving away all the religious sects secrets?
So I'm a little hesitant that this the "real deal", but admittedly, I'll watch the sneak peek to see what it's all about. Just like the rest of the world. And that's what the Discovery Channel is banking on.
