Bring up an interesting legal question and possible challenge?:
Yet the Family's Web site,, lists Berg as their founder. His bio states, "David Berg's lively, down to earth, and sometimes unconventional approach to heavenly matters makes his writings a unique contribution to Christian literature."

The bio and photos of Berg on the site violate Lord Justice Ward's 1995 ruling, in which he wrote that leaders had to "denounce David Berg," adding, "They must acknowledge that through his writings he was personally responsible for children in The Family having been subjected to sexually inappropriate behaviour; that it is now recognized that it was not just a mistake to have written as he did but wrong to have done so; and that as a result children have been harmed by their experiences."
