You know it's a good cult to raise kids in when this is how they think

"Putting things in perspective, the raids on COG communities in Argentina, France, Australia, and Spain were all AFTER "1978, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988 or 1989". They were perpetrated by anti-cult organizations aided by some ex-members, who "sicced" the authorities and press on the COG churches/homes, resulting in HUNDREDS of innocent and unabused children (of all ages, from babies to teens) being emotionally, physically, and sexually abused ("examined") by misguided authorities. I don't hear (retroactive) objections from COG critics here about these proven atrocities (kidnapping, false reporting, child abuse, etc.), which were reported and documented worldwide. In each country it was the judicial system that found there were no grounds for such actions and had the children returned to their parents, and any incarcerated adults released (and in some cases substantial compensation was paid by government agencies). Why are you not demanding the perpetrators of these proven crimes be brought to justice?

Some ex-members later wrote partial apologies for their participation, but others persist in their endeavours to curtail the rights of individuals to follow their freely chosen beliefs." to this
