I posted this on the Dexter Dailystatesman website
There is a mistake in the article which I didn't notice until I read the news print edition. The quote is, "Reschly is Amish...".

Old Order Amish, Amish Mennonites, Old Order Mennonites, Reformed Mennonites, Conservative Mennonites, Holdeman (Church of God in Christ)Mennonites, Old Order Brethren, and some other smaller groups do not wear neckties, wrist watches, belts (suspenders instead), shirts of the style and color Reschly wore, and mustaches if they wear beards. Reschly is not Amish. He may have been brought up Amish or Mennonite but he doesnot belong to any Amish group. The plain churches I listed donot allow higher education among their members.

The one thing I agree with them on is their ban on television and movies and their modest separation of the sexes dress standards. Another thing is non-resistance which i agree with them on nearly all the way.

Have you not got anything better to do than to get on here bashing people? Do you think this makes you look big? Maybe you should look at the Megan Meier story on the web. There are laws that protect people from bullies like you. Everytime you post something on here your IP address is posted with it. You can be punished for things you say on here. Thank you and have a nice day.

Who is being bashed-the guy who says "I'm Amish" or the guy who is dubious about his religion and backs up his statement with facts that can be checked? Who are you outraged at? I'm confused...

Dang, you've been really busy on here today, huh? And it's the same little speech, word for word, on each thread. If you feel the need to respond to each thread, please at least use some new material. This shit's getting old!
