You seriously have a problem with telling parents they can’t deny basic high school education. That’s religious to you?

Wow, so obnoxious and horrifying. There is almost ZERO food for thought in this thread. There are people who understand that Amish people’s children deserve basic human rights and the same opportunity to join society as every other child in the United States — and there are people who want to trash their rights in the name of their parents’ religion.

Bullshit. Utter bullshit. I’m astonished people are defending this evil practice.
