There is such deep irony in the following statement that it literally takes my breath away:
"2. WE HAVE TO GO INTO ALL THE WORLD & PREACH THE GOSPEL & we can't do it very well if we're dragged down by a bunch of time-taking, energy-draining, spirit-depressing, retarded & handicapped people, children or otherwise! Let the World take care of them, & they will! They pity them & they have nothing better to do than to take care of them. Our main business is preaching the Gospel!"
One can only assume Berg didn't include Matt. 25:34-46 in the gospel he was so intent on preaching, but not practicing.
Also interesting that Berg expects "the World" to have more compassion than he does.
You're right-- Berg was a truly despicable man.
