We may have our opinions and some acts that were committed within the organization were downright criminal and should definitely be addressed, especially for the victims sake. Many of those individuals, from the sound of it, would have carried on in that fashion whether in or out of the F. The thing about the F. is it's confusion and it's willingness to hide some of these very criminals without any retribution and without any real apology to the victims. The confusion I'm talking about is how they would excommunicate a member for having sex with a minor while allowing it in other places. Nothing ever made any sense. It all depended upon where you were and who you were around and how they interpreted the Berg letters. What I'm saying is, one cannot arbitrarily blame a whole group of people because of the acts of others.
