Donnie you are right we should not force any one into any culture. That being said we should not tollerate abuse (physical or sexual) of children. These Amish need to be punished just like everyone else and they should pay taxes. I do not care what religion, race, culture, sexual orientation ect... ect... should be excused for abuse of children.

I really don't care about those things you listed, as I have no control over any bit of it, and you know what, most of it doesn't affect me or my family. And until it does....poof, I don't care. I'd rather worry about whats going on in my little region of the world, the stuff that DOES affect me, my family and friends, directly and immediately. (perhaps our government should take a little advice from that...stop worrying about BS in other parts of the world, and pay attention to your own backyard for a change).
If anyone wishes to be a little less lazy, spend a whole 10 minutes scouring the web about this subject, you will find many disturbing things that relate to my experience, among other Amish clans. I already know what I need to know, so I have no need to search the web for others similar stories.
