As House states--EVERYONE LIES!!!!!
And the Amish are no different. I never thought of them as a passive all lovey-dovey religion. They are basically an Abrahamic Jesus group and the only reason most think they are nice is because they wall themselves away from society and do a fair amount of positive PR.
