Despite Their Religious Devotion, the Amish Can Be as Cruel as the Rest of Us

"Near where I live there was a case several years ago where an Amish woman was sexually abusing kids. Boy, was that ever hushed up fast. They "take care of their own." I'm sorry, but if you molest a kid you need you have your ass handed over to the law.
"Another story: My in-laws have a dog rescued from an Amish guy. This dog was tied to a chain on a concrete slab and not only was he half-dead from starvation, the guy's kids were beating the shit out of him. If my husband's uncle, who was the breeder, had not gone by to see how the dog was, he would have died a horrible death.
"Luckily, he took one look, grabbed the dog and took him away to a loving home while the asshole was yelling at him.
"Never ever believe that the Amish are any better than the rest of us just because they don't use technology. You'll find the same monsters among them as you do in the "secular" world."
