9 Amish men ordered jailed over buggy violation

9 Amish men ordered jailed over buggy violation | Amish Theology 12 | Scoop.it

Nine Amish men were ordered to jail after refusing to display an orange reflective triangle on their horse-drawn buggies, the Courier-Journal reports. The men, who owed $158 in fines and court costs, said paying the fines would amount to complying with a Kentucky law they believe violates their religious strictures against wearing bright colors or trusting in man-made symbols for their safety, the newspaper says.

District Judge Deborah Hawkins Crooks ordered the nine to serve three to 10 days in jail. The Mayfield jail had special-ordered dark-colored jumpsuits out of respect for the men's likely aversion to wearing the usual orange jumpsuits, says the Courier-Journal..

Samuel Mullet, 15 Other Amish GUILTY Of Hate Crimes In Beard Cutting Attacks

Samuel Mullet, 15 Other Amish GUILTY Of Hate Crimes In Beard Cutting Attacks | Amish Theology 12 | Scoop.it

CLEVELAND ... Sixteen Amish men and women were convicted Thursday of hate crimes for a series of hair- and beard- cutting attacks on fellow sect members in a religious dispute that offered a rare and sometimes lurid glimpse into the closed and usually self-regulating community of believers.

A federal jury found 66-year-old Samuel Mullet, the leader of the breakaway group, guilty of orchestrating the cuttings last fall in an attempt to shame mainstream members of his community who he believed were straying from their beliefs. His followers were found guilty of carrying out the attacks, which terrorized the normally peaceful religious settlement that aims to live simply and piously.

Prosecutors and witnesses described how sons pulled their father out of bed and chopped off his beard in the moonlight and how women surrounded their mother-in-law and cut off two feet of her hair, taking it down to the scalp in some places.

The defendants face prison terms of 10 years or more. Prosecutors say they targeted hair because it carries spiritual significance in their faith.

All the defendants are members of Mullet's settlement that he founded in eastern Ohio near the West Virginia panhandle. The Amish eschew many conveniences of modern life, including electrical appliances and automobiles, and embrace their centuries-old roots.

Federal officials said the verdicts would send a message about religious intolerance  ....  DDxx♥!.
