The majority of Mennonites are found in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, and Virginia. The Amish split from the Mennonites in the 1600s. Mennonite and Amish are often confused as being the same.

A protestant faith. Major tenants of their beliefs consist of pacifism, believer's baptism, and a penchant towards social justice and equality. Loose translation; the guys cry alot and are copious pussy eaters, and the girls are dikey, earthy and typically progressive. Damn good people. Fascinated with lame board games and all around do gooding. Not to be confused with their terrorist cousins the Amish.
