Religious Terrorism

As if you needed any more proof that it's religion that causes terrorism, as opposed to Islam in particular, I suppose we need look no further than this case to find a modern-day example of brutality and oppression in the name of "God."
Sixteen members of a schismatic Amish group were convicted Thursday of federal hate crimes in connection with a series of attacks that included cutting the beards and hair of their coreligionists. 
A Cleveland jury of seven men and five women deliberated for four days before convicting Samuel Mullet Sr., 66, of orchestrating at least five attacks in 2011 on other Amish, a pacifist [CHRISTIAN] religion whose members are noted for their plain dress and their reluctance to embrace modern technology.    [emphasis added, ed.]
