Maybe I'll send Dr. Jim a letter and ask him to explain his conclusions from the 1975 study regarding COG's support for the sanctity of marriage and the lack of sexual improprieties in a group whose current leader gave birth to a Jesus Baby in January of 1975? I'd have to dig up the original study, and it's probably not worth the trouble of reviewing. I doubt he'd respond to my query. These sorry-ass academics who work for TFI aren't interested in defending the intellectual integrity of their work. They know it's crap.
The academic whose buns I'd really like to burn is Lawrence Lilliston, a quack psychologist and two-bit faculty at a minor league college who gave Ricky a clean bill of health after Rick/Davidito refused to discuss his sexual socialization growing up in TFI. The guy has absolutely NO academic credentials that suggest he's qualified to assess the impact of deviant sexual socialization on an adolescent who was adapted to life in a high demand organization.
