    Erik, is it okay to mention that you will be a guest today at 5 p.m. Eastern Time, along with Osiah Horst and Linda Maendel, on Suzanne Woods Fisher’s Amish Wisdom show? If not, you can delete this. The topic, “Who Are the Anabaptists?”, will be recorded at http://toginet.com/shows/amishwisdom.

    Erik, I dont’ know if I will say this quit right so forgive me in advance if it comes out a little wired. I hope that those that did the hair cutting and beard shearing to get convicted. In my way of thinking they are no better maybe even worse then those fighting over in the middle east. They fight over there because this group don’t believe what they do or they way they think they should or how they should. Well those 16 Bergholz did the same thing to those they violated. And why I think it is worse is because it was done to people that are basicly the same religion. And the Ansectors CAME to this country in fear of persicution, and wanted freedom to live as they saw fit. And that is what our country does. I hope I said this right.

    @ Robin Wyatt

    Well said, Robin.
    My Amish neighbor and I have been following this story very closely. He was born/raised near that area in Ohio, and much of his family is still there. He stops in each afternoon after work, and reads the latest that I have bookmarked for him.
    I agree with you 100%!

    Amish in the news

    Mark wanted me to let you know that there is a good article on the Belle Center on the front page of last evening’s Bellefontaine Examiner. It basically lets people know that the Amish people do pay their share of taxes and maybe a little bit more. Refreshing. The Belle Center Amish also contribute twenty-five dollars per buggy to the church which makes out a check for the Logan County Engineer to pay for the road repair.

      Don Curtis, thanks for telling us about the article on Belle Center.

      I read it and was better informed. I’d advise skipping the comments section attached to that article as the majority seem to be a little “troll”-ish and negative on the Amish lifestyle.

    By the way, Eric, Mark asked me to ask you when you are going to visit the Belle Center Amish Community? You have an open invite to stay with him.

    Berholtz

    These people deserve to be jailed. They can practice their faith and have no right to interfere in an-others. They attacked and cut the beards knowing what it meant and did so free of will. They will have to accept the consequences and that is it. Their intent has zero to do with the breaking of law. Their religious law does not supersede the states laws. They have the right to practice for themselves and their minor children but after that its not their business to mind.
