"We Are Not Christians"
The SNAP Challenge Part 2 will have to wait, since I am in the middle of a crazy week! In the meantime, here's a story that has me riveted: "Amish Beard-Cutting Trial Attracts International Attention." It's absolutely incredible to me that: 1. an Amish person has to be put on trial for a hate crime; 2. said trial is taking place in Cleveland. I'm particularly arrested by the quote from the defendant's son, "We are not Christians." Ouch. Well, at least someone is honest about the nature of the behavior this group- and its leader- has exhibited. They know better. We all do.
