This question is an all-or-nothing thinking error. Please define what is meant by "The Family," because I'm not sure what I'm voting for or against.
If "The Family" means blindly following and protecting a criminal leadership, then I'm against it. Every time I hear about the things that were done to Merry Berg, I rededicate my personal commitment to get the statute of limitations for childhood abuse changed in the U.S. I am definitely against TFI's criminal leadership and anyone in the group that engaged in the criminal abuse and neglect of children.
I am particularly annoyed by the self-serving excuse that the worse Family abuse of children is in the past, so therefore the victims should forget it. Honest, hard-working taxpaying citizens are paying for Merry Berg's care in the California detention system. Without something akin to divine intervention, these so-called selfish systemites will be taking care of a severely damaged human being for the rest of her natural life. The people responsible for this damage are Berg, Zerby & Kelly, not the taxpayers of California. I detest the sociopathic rationalizations of Karen Zerby. Who is the selfish one? A person who pays taxes and cares for weaker members of society, or the individual who participates in the destruction of a developing human being and then offers nothing more than a weak apology for "mistakes"?
I also recognize there are many people in TFI who have not committed crimes, but are willing to take the heat for their criminal leadership as their portion of "godly persecution." I'm not against these people or their right to belong to a deviant Christian sect. If they want to believe they're some of the most effective, dedicated Christian missionaries on the face of the planet, it's their right to ignore the fact that they inconsequential gnats in the world of Christian evangelism. I'm sure this fact smacks SG disciples in the face every time they get out of their comfort zone long enough to interact with legitimate Christian missionaries.
I recognize that if TFI's criminal leadership were to disappear into the bowels of prison, many of these Family members would continue to follow them as anointed prophets, pretty much the same way Manson's devotees followed him. To the extent that they have chosen to throw in their lot with criminals, I would appear to be against them and their alternative society. When blind followers make the choice to remain ignorant of the facts regarding the life-long consequences of the childhood abuse suffered by people like Merry Berg or Rick Rodriguez, they also choose to believe I'm against them.
However, I refuse to let my position toward Family disciples be defined by their badly informed choices. My position is that members of The Family can live however they want as long as they aren't protecting criminals or engaging in criminal activity under the guise of religious freedom.
