Here's a young man in the Family named leocon:
"Its a bit like someone wanting Germany or Austria to be disbanded because of Hitler and the 2nd world war. Well if you would tell that to the German or Austrian public they would rally together and string you up by you neck tie. They find it extremely degrading if you even mention that portion of history, and then they feel anger and hatred towards those who still hold them responsible for the crimes of their grandparents and great grandparents. They, like us, are living in a completely new era...."
No, leocon, It's not like Germany and Austria. The COG ideology was a Back to Eden ultimate trip and once you accepted that it was a slow boat back to Nazi-Ville.
The Family is not a country--it is an ideology--like communism, Nazism, fascism, and if leocon would actually read the Family literature he would understand the anti-semitic and fascist heritage of the COG/Family International. Sure they deny it all now.
David Berg and Karen Zerby and Steven Kelly promulgated that ideology of love tempered with plenty to hate too, you know, and now they want to hide behind the FREEDOM OF RELIGION.
The Christians in the Family should stand up to the fascists, but you know what is happening? The Fascists(Zerby and Kelly and the paid leadership) as usual--just like the communists in Russia are trying to appear to be the instigators and leaders of change towards more indigenous control.
