I agree. To be able to know that nothing has been hidden from you in an effort to try to make you stay in the fold through ignorance is wonderful. They get to experience what they choose to experience and then make an informed decision as to what they believe and what they want their life to be like. Although people have accused the Amish of being "backwards" this is one of the most progressive ideas I have heard about from any religion.
