    Hello JT;

    I went to the site where David Yoder has his book. Got hooked on the darn thing and read it all.

    It is a tale of terrible abuse-incest-rape-murder and collusion with the county officers. David Yoder is a real standup guy.

    This particular group of extremist Amish make the jw's look tame. The facade that they put up of being this kind, loving, sheltered, group keeping away from the harsh evil world is terrible.

    Getting a few months of shunning for murder and not reporting this to the authorities and the authorities going along with the Amish Idea of "we will keep all this within the group" leads to some horrible deeds not being exposed or the correct legal actions taken.

    It sure changed my view of Amish. It seems there are other Amish groups that are not this radical and more like jw's. Still I would not want any part of them either.
