for cutting off a few hairs from their fellow brothers? Funny though, the thing is on now for some time. Nothing here in the media, no protests, no -free the beard cutters-, no copycats, nothing. Feel sorry for them indeed, no fans, no supporters here in Moscow and the rest of the world.

Silly people, if guilty they should get at least 2 years. For sure they won't do it again.

I read the article. Pretty interesting that the Amish is one of the fastest growing religious groups in the USA. Beats me though why people voluntarily choose to impose all kinds of wierd restrictions upon themselves, as if life is not hard enough as it is...

This doesn't make any sense in English, either.

or are they a sect also? when is a sect religion? does it need more members or waht?
Putin should get them to Russia, there is a population growth of 3.65 per year, they shun electricity, phones, cars,modern amenities. I am serious and not at
all sarcastic, Siberia would be a nice place for them. No one will bother them there.
The are of German decent, work hard,VV needs people like that.

The Amish are considered a sect; an off-shoot from the Mennonites, who are also German descent and plentiful in my area here. Good meat packers !!
