When she wasn't of any use to them, they just got rid of her. Then there's the rape stuff.https://www.npr.org/2020/01/19/797804404/investigation-into-child-sex-abuse-in-amish-communities

Quote from: Mike Cl on December 23, 2020, 01:30:07 PMJust when I was almost willing to give a sect a grudging pass, I read about the puppy mills these fuckers have! And then other stuff came out. Organized religion, with no exceptions, (that I am aware of) is evil and damaging.
Quote from: SGOS on December 24, 2020, 11:19:20 AMI always got a long with the Amish. I've done business with them. They seemed the least offensive of the religions around me, but they do have their detractors, mostly from other Christian sects. I just expected more from the Amish.
