Amish Beard-Cutting Cult Investigated

Sam Mullet (above), alleged cult leader

Quote:

A group of men armed with scissors and battery-powered clippers attacked Miller, holding him down and cutting out a chunk of his beard, according to the Millers and law enforcement.

Arlene said that when it was over, her husband's beard was "about 4 or 5 inches" shorter.

The attackers targeted Miller's beard because, as a member of the Amish community, it is a significant symbol of his faith.

Arlene says the men attacked her husband because he had helped one of Sam Mullet's (the cult leader) children leave his Amish (breakaway) sect.

Q: The cult leader (Mullet) asked: "Is beard-cutting a crime?"

This is, indeed, horrible!

That would be like shaving Donald Trump's head bald.
