Wasn't the discussion in the Summit Jewels precisely the challenge of how to keep the young people especially from thinking that the sexual stuff that happened to them "in the past" was not abuse but within the Law of Love (as long as it was "done in love," of course, which just seems to mean "if done by a godly Family member in good standing and not a lustful systemite")? It was stated that the practices were no longer expedient and thus forbidden, but the crux of the issue was how to correct the impression the youth was getting due to the prohibition that the practices had been wrong.
