Amish Renaissance

I find this story just fascinating...apparently the Amish population has more than doubled since 1992. I was hoping this was due to a large increase in the number of people converting to the Amish know, throwing away their iPhones and buying a horse and buggy... but unfortunately the article dash that hope, "a small amount of the increase is also due to conversions to the faith."
