I don't know why those on my conclusion made everything seem so rosy, but that is their story and not mine. It could also have been a case that many of them didn't get abused or view times of punishment as abusive? There was a general call out for us SGA's to post things on the conclusion site. I did not, just to busy. I believe many of them are happy in The Family, as I am. I think you have to understand also that when Mo was around his word was law, and like you said in your post you just obeyed. This is a dilemma I bet for adults today as what do you do with certain sexual unlawful conduct made in the past? Claim you did it out of fear, love for Mo, love for Jesus, had to obey, or that one is just sexual and wanted some xxxxx? Either way, to bring it up might land you in Jail? I have read where Maria has said that MO was wrong on a number of issues, and I am not ashamed to say that Maria is also a little dumb on certain matters. She is not like Mo at all; she relies on others very heavily. Most GN's are not her talking but this and that spirit helper, or Peter. Some of her writing is weird to say the least, but then they are not Charter requirements in that we have to obey them or out you go.
