that sort of thing that Ricky went through (and many others) was child sex abuse in just about any westernized country. We were duped by Berg to think it was ok with his talk of the Mexican nanny, but it was not. Many of us were young when we joined and were not fully developed in our maturity, hence us calling him dad. We listened to him as if he were a father, to our shame. Even Berg stated this in his meanderings into incest and such saying he could be put in jail, etc. So the world knew, but we didn't or were told to believe it wasn't.

And what about Berg and Maria's abuse of Mene? You still haven't talked about that. Have you read The Last State? Come on - that was supposed to be our standard and many young kids suffered because of that letter with their parents and shepherds following Berg's lead. I want to hear what you have to say about that.
