AN AMISH MAN PLEADED GUILTY TO SEX OFFENSES: REALLY?

Tonight's local news went on about an "Amish Man" pleading guilty to some pretty nasty stuff.  Why is part of the story that he's "Amish".

Can you imagine the story if they said "A Catholic Man" or "A Jewish Man"?  This was not well thought out.

If they had said "A Muslim man" we would have to apologize and promise to let them go ahead and rape away.

Excellent point. I guess they could argue the "unusualness" angle of the guy being Amish, but that's not much of an argument.

for some reason, this reminded me of the Onion article:
