BERGHOLZ, Ohio – The leader of a breakaway Amish group said an attack on fellow Amish in which a man’s beard was cut off was a religious issue stemming from long-standing resentment of his group’s treatment.
Sam Mullet, 66, said the goal was to send a message to Amish in Holmes County that they should be ashamed of themselves for the way they were treating Mullet and his community.
“We’d like to get up in the morning, be left alone, live like normal people,” Mullet said Monday. “They won’t leave us be.”
Mullet said he didn’t order the hair-cutting but didn’t stop two of his sons and another man from carrying it out last week on a 74-year-old man in his home in rural eastern Ohio.
“I didn’t order anything like that,” he said, and added: “I didn’t tell them not to, I’m still not going to tell them not to.”
Is The Mayor to believe the mastermind behind this heinous crime, the man who cut off the beard of a fellow Amish, is named Mullet? That’s like having a dentist named Chew, or the guy that cuts your hair to be named Barber. Or, having a urologist with the name of Penis.
The Mayor could go on and on, but that Penis joke was the perfect ending for a rather amazing post.
I betcha if hurting someones feelings wasn’t a capital crime in Canada – punishable with large fines, potential jail term, and hundreds upon hundreds of hours of mandatory sensitivity training courses (not to mention the expensive and extensive legal process) - the guy above would have his name made fun of.
Fortunately for him, he will never hear anyone ever make fun of his not-unusual and not-not-funny name.
