I was a member for a little over a year in the early 70's. I was sent to several communes, joined in Detroit Mi, then went to Deckerville MI, then Chicago and last in the Lansing Colony. Although the Detroit colony was much rougher or hardcore than than the others NEVER was using sex as a tool to win over or convert ANYONE! Especially in Lansing, there were VERY strict rules of modesty and a separation between the mens groups and the womens. I was the teacher (which I loved, I have been a pre-school &spec ed teacher for over 30 yrs) and never would I ever taught the children about this "Fishy" crap and nothing even remotely close to that was ever discussed at this or any of the communes I lived at. This is some real biased documentation about sex and anythng else that has been commented on.
Did you know about this group on able2know? It is by and about people concerned with The Children of God.
I joined in the early 70's as well - it was as you say. However, the FF letter came out in 74 or 75?, and obviously Berg was already practicing it.

You need a question? I can give one to you free of charge if you like. The next question I will have to charge of you.
