Amish electric heater

I saw this commercial on TV yesterday. The selling point of this thing is that it's built by the Amish.

Amish are not supposed to use power-line electricity right? How could they make this? Do they make it and not test it? What is the deal? Are they not spitting in the face of God as they build these modern contraptions? I'm confused. Are they going to burn in hell? Does hell look like the simulated fake flames of the Heat Surge?

What's also interesting is that in the commerical, one of the Amish technicians used the battery operated remote control to turn on and test the unit. Is he going to burn in Heat Surge hell for doing that for a living? I also read that someone saw a "Made in China" label on the non-cabinet portion of the heater (the actually heating assembly). I didn't know there were Chinese Amish (or is it Amish Chinese?) building these things too.

New York has all the crazy commercials. We don't get Amish HSN on the left coast.

And ss this a late night commercial. It would be funny if a phone sex commercial followed it.

"You don't have to be alone tonight. Just call me. Pick up the phone."

It's my favorite jingle....ever.
