Hate-crime charges filed in Amish
haircut investigation

Mullet

There was a raid on a "breakaway Amish" group's compound in Ohio, and seven suspects were arrested, the AP notes. What a weird, weird case. Reporters previously interviewed one of the suspects, Sam Mullet, who told the AP that it was none of the police's business:

Mullet said he should be allowed to punish people who break the laws of the church, just as police are allowed to punish people who break the laws of the state.

"You have your laws on the road and the town -- if somebody doesn't obey them, you punish them. But I'm not allowed to punish the church people?" Mullet said. "I just let them run over me? If every family would just do as they pleased, what kind of church would we have?"

I fear for our country if our clergy can't go around and shave sinners against their will.
