More than 50 Amish children could lose one parent to prison Friday when 16 men and women are sentenced in beard-cutting attacks on fellow members of their faith in Ohio.

The defendants are asking the judge for leniency so they can return to their homes and farms, teaching their sons a trade and their daughters how to sew, cook and keep house.

But their bid faces an uphill battle. Victims of the 2011 attacks say justice is needed, especially for the ringleader.

The government called the attacks a hate crime and an attempt by a splinter group to shame members who left or denounced


We suspect these people are part of the Amish Mafia

I guess there's a difference between Ohio Amish and our Amish. They want vengeance because their hair was cut. Ours had their children murdered and in keeping with their faith they forgave the guy posthumously and were even gracious toward his family.

Just goes to show Rudey that even among Amish, there are different levels and convictions of their faith that they cling to. While the actions of those listed are indeed disrespectful, it shows all--no matter what faith--has its rebels.
