If Faithy is getting treatment for her addiction to alcohol, then that would be great. One part of that treatment, perhaps later down the road would be to make amends for who you have hurt. What a wonderful thing it would be if top family leadership could do something like that!
I can't imagine what it was like to grow up in Bergs house and be molested by him as a child. And have that continue thru adulthood. The most healing thing in the world that could happen would be for family leaders to admit to the doctrines they made and to uncover the secrets and the pr fronts. This would mean that they would validate what their accusers are saying and not minimize it to death and outright lie about it. Healing would be had all the way around.
Unfortunately, many perpetrators do not care except if they get caught.
I also agree that when it comes to prosecution of a pedophile the survivor of it needs to be fully prepared for the whole ordeal.
