Yes, this is true, in real serious cases, but then you have to judge according to the offense and who was the perpetrator. Some people simply did not practice the things berg suggested or inferred. Some people went through the F. seeing no child abuse whatsoever or manipulating in people's lives or spiritual abuse and are confused when others bring it up. Some of these real serious crimes or offenses were done on an individual basis and the perpetrators are really the responsible parties. This would explain why some people can live through their years in the F. seeing no real harm done and/or their children coming out of it fairly unscathed. One cannot indiscriminantly punish a whole set of people for a crime an individual did. These individuals have to answer for their crimes and sadly, most of them are in hiding within the F. and unapologetic. These people really should be gone after on an individual basis and made to answer for what they did.

I appreciate your input, you have a good point.
