Bill O'Reilly Asks Lancaster, PA's Amish Community What They Think Of Caitlyn Jenner.

Today is the day the issue of Vanity Fair magazine with Caitlyn Jenner officially hits the newsstands.

But the story of the former Olympic champion and Kardashian stepdad Bruce Jenner’s gender switch has been a social issue for several weeks, long before the magazine cover of Jenner went public.

On Monday, Bill O’Reilly of “The O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News sent a correspondent to Lancaster County to ask this area's residents and tourists what they thought of the Jenner cover.

As the Washington Post noted, “Many hadn't seen it yet or even knew who the Kardashians were."

1. The Amish are pretty much a closed society and probably do not read Vanity Fair.

2. It would be nice to live in a community where nobody has heard of the Kardashians.

3. They have very interesting and for the most part safe communities. But unless you want to follow

the rules you might not like it.

4. They have smart phones

and electronics. They skirt their religious obligations by having them in the barns or workshops, where they do work. It's okay to use machines for "work". They do a lot of roofing and construction in our area. They arrive in trucks, use regular power tools, and have cell phones, because it's for work. At least that's how it is in the western part of the state.

5. The Amish are giving interviews to a television personality why, exactly?

6. Well, that's some vital reportage

I wonder, though, why Billo didn't send a correspondent to Amish country after the Newtown massacre; after all, the Amish in Nickel Mines had to deal with the same horrific event, and might have some insights not usually aired on Fox (or just about anywhere else in the popular media, for that matter).

[font color="white"]Be honest: You had to look up Nickel Mines, didn't you?
