Clean, dirty, cult, perverts, buggies, houses owne4d by church, etc, etc....they are still citizens & should abide by the same rules that others do. What makes them so darn special?

Will the Trib be listing the religious affiliations of all others charged with septic violations in the future or do just the Amish deserve this shout out?

Thebear did you read my comments I was simply trying to point out not all Amish were bad. The only reason i brought up what happened in the Catholic church was because they did the same thing that the Amish bishop did. We all have sinned at one time or another.

Wow, all the ill-informed (probably by choice) bigots are out today. Let's see, we've seen attacks on the Amish, the Catholics, hey, how about the blacks, the jewish, and how about a few Italian or Polish jokes thrown in for good measure?

I agree with Mark Twain when he wrote that it's better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.

There may be some amish that are unaware of what is going on under there noses and in the next room to there poor 5 and 6 year olds but if that is true than all are wrong for not saying anything and allowing that to happen to a child by men that claim to be human.KID diddlers need to do some hard time and we all know it goes on in other churchs as well. put ALL OF THEM IN THE SAME JAIL CELL SERVES THEM RIGHT TO SUFFER.

Lets face it the Catholic church has covered up sex crimes it is no different than what David miller did both acts are as equally sick. No one is better than anyone else we all sin, but at least I know better not to say all Amish are bad.

For most things they should be left alone. For sanitary things they should have to comply.

Warrenproud hates all Amish for some reason. Wasn't he the one blaming someones death on Amish hunters? Not all Amish are bad. But there are bad Amish. We will not know how bad because things are handled within their group.

But related to the article, Amish should have to obey the laws and codes just like everyone else. If my poo can't pollute your creeks and wells then neither can theirs!

Amish Mafia is ridiculous. Those people are not Amish. Amish would never allow themselves to be filmed. It is against their religion. Amish people do not wear makeup like "Esther" in that show. Amish men do not dress like that or wear their hair like that. It is a fake. It was made for gullible people who will watch anything and believe it.

Reallytiredof it i just get tired of people saying all Amish are bad and dirty people. I had Amish help me with my wedding they made my cookies for the reception. They even kept the food going during my ceremony. Not all Amish are bad people and shows like Amish Mafia are nothing but bs and to the people who think that show is ture need to get a life because I have asked if it really is going on and the the response was there is no way that the Bishop will allow that and that came from the bishop himself

Why can they drive a boat on the lake but not a car on the road? Iknow they have to use a car seat when you drive them why not in a buggy?A buggy is a death trap on any road.do the amish support our veterans?It was a cult when they came here and it a cult now no matter how you think . Let them go back to where ever they came from they have no value to anyone that is not in the same cult as them.

I have known members of the Amish and Mennonite communities my entire life. As a community I hold them in high regard. Certainly there are some who are not as well mannered as others, but tell me what community is exempt from bad behavior. I have said many times that the Amish make great neighbors. Having said that however I do believe that they should not be exempt from sanitary or safety laws put in place to protect all members of the county. Most of the Amish I have known would agree with that statement.

Yeah, I can vouch for that too. Those people were so afraid of Mullett that the didn't even want to talk about him. Mullett is a demon. Pure evil.

Ms Smith. Not all Amish have their homes in their names. Maybe the ones you drive do, although I have a hard time believing you asked them or that they just told you that their homes are in their names but I have no choice but to trust your words. I am telling you that my Amish friend told me himself that A lot of Amish have their homes with the church so that they are tax exempt.

STOP YELLING AT ME!

I've also had buggies turn left right in front of me.

Sam, I have Amish friends. I've worked with them. Grown up with them. Lived next to them.

A lot of Amish do not pay property tax because their property is though the church which is TAX EXEMPT. There are lots and lot and lots of Amish kids in parochial schools. They don't all attend their own Amish schools.

You have me confused. I've never talked about NADIA. You're thinking of someone else. I don't know what NADIA is.
