Is this a true statement (see below)? The Family Internatioanal has NEVER "renounced" ANY of its literature... they've only "purged" it.

*taken from a rebuttal in these above mentioned notices:
"In 1988, David Berg renounced all literature, including his own, that indicated in any way that sexual activity with minors was permissible. All such literature was expunged from our communiČties. He clearly stated that any sexual activity between an adult and a minor was not to be tolerated. It was from that time forward that the Family made this grounds for immediate excommunication from our fellowship.ö (A statement on the deaths of Angela Smith and Ricky Rodriguez)"
