YMMV: Picket Fences
  • Anvilicious: Many examples, but the cow in the manger comes most strongly to mind.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In "To Forgive is Divine,"the community of an Amish rape victim is sued after the victim refuses to disclose the identity of the rapist in court (because her religion precludes cooperation with the secular court system/the Amish council delcined to press charges). While on the stand, the girl's father tells the court that his community doesn't expect help from the outside world. In response, the plaintiff's attorney asks if they would accept help if the community were under siege by an armed attacker. This was 10 years before the horrific 2006 Amish schooolhouse shooting, when a teacher had to run to a payphone in order to call for help.
