Yes, I know it's funny, but seriously folks they're terrorising families by breaking into homes in a gang of 20 or more and one victim mentioned is a young girl who had her hair cut off, how odd :hmm: and just plain rotten.

This sounds like it's some kind of religious punishment (or terrorism). I know in the Amish religion women never cut their hair, which is why it's always wrapped up in a bun and under a bonnet. The men grow beards to signify that they are married and never shave them off again. That is rotten.

Hi there,

New member, first post and isn't it a weird one! Anyway just my tuppence worth. The article says:

"The group refers to itself as part of the Bergholz clan, a nearby Amish community led by bishop Sam Mullet..."

Could it be that it is in fact a rival group who want to get the Bergholz clan into stook?

I've never seen an Amish bloke with a mullet.............. I'll get my coat  :yes:

Dear you guys. Words cannot express how much I hate you guys. As we fight our way northward into the great unknown, only that one thing remains certain: that I hate you guys with every tired muscle in my confederate body. We have taken Topeka and I must rally the men onward to Missouri. Because I will not stop until we have won it all, and you guys are my slaves. Because I hate you guys. I hate you guys so very very much. Yours, General Cartman Lee.

Maybe you should read the article. They aren't attacking the general public. They are attacking other Amish people. I stated a fact about how the Amish religion views a woman's hair and a man's beard. These acts seem to be geared to that.

If she needs to, I would suppose so.

Maybe now people will take me seriously when I tell them about the Buddhist fingernail painters that have been following me.  Can I take the straight jacket off?

Humor aside, I always viewed the Amish as peaceful people, it is horrible that some would do such a thing.

Does it count as religious motivated oppression?

I always thought only JWs and Mormons followed people around.  :lol:
Seriously though, these are attacks against Amish religious creeds that they take very seriously.
