Exposing the Harmfulness of TF's Child Indoctrination Pubs

from Eva St John - Sunday, January 22, 2006
accessed 2299 times

The following is a condensed version of a paper I put together some 12 years ago to provide investigators and journalists with proof of the systematic indoctrination the children in TF were/are being subjected to on a daily basis.

To make my point I actually chose out the four most seemingly ‘innocent’ children’s publications I had access to at the time (published in the mid-late 80’s), and did not include the more blatantly perverse ones in the study, such as Heaven’s Girl. (However, I would attach some photocopied pages from Heaven’s Girl and the Teen Training manual, etc, to really make my case). I still give this paper out (and attached photocopies) to this day, to aid anyone wanting more insight into the warped mind-world the SGA’s were/are being brought up in in TF. - Just thought you guys might find it of interest.

Breakdown of 4 of the ‘least harmful’ pictorial publications used in the daily indoctrination and training of children in The Family cult in the 1980's - 90's:

Titles: ‘Heaven’s Children’, ‘New Heaven’s Children’, Kidz Mop 1’, ‘Kidz Mop 2’.

Psychological Sexual Abuse:

No. of times sexual activity vividly described &/or depicted: 42

No. of times incest described &/or depicted: 6

No. of times child love/sex relationships suggested/ depicted: 18

No. of times nudity/sexuality depicted: 39

No. of times children depicted viewing nudity or nude dancing: 5

No. of times Flirty Fishing described or depicted: 21

No. of times Heaven’s Girl depicted: 10

No. of times children depicted as Heaven’s Girls & Heaven’s Boys: 20

No. of times young girls depicted as Heaven’s Girl’s Flirty Fishing: 3

No. of times children depicted acting seductively toward adults: 10

Psychological Exploitation & Psycho-Sexual Exploitation/ Abuse:

No. of times David Berg depicted as ‘the great prophet’ & ‘Grandpa’: 241

No. of times ‘Grandpa’ Berg depicted as the central source of all
relevant information whose word controls the children’s lives: All

No. of times children depicted with ‘Grandpa’ Berg: 132

No. of times children depicted studying/adhering to,
&/or sharing ‘Grandpa’ Berg’s teachings: 78

No. of times children depicted doing ‘normal’ school work: 5

No. of times ‘Grandpa’ Berg described or depicted
engaging in incest & teen-adult sex: 3

No. of times ‘Grandpa’ Berg described or depicted engaging in sex & orgy-type sex: 30

No. of times girl teens & women depicted as ‘breeders’ for the group: 3

Child Exploitation:

No. of times children depicted as workers & laborers for the group, ie: house-cleaners, baby-sitters, kitchen-hands, office helpers, etc: 52

No. of times children depicted out on the streets selling Berg’s literature, or singing & preaching, etc: 171

(Again, as opposed to…)
No. of times children depicted doing ‘normal’ school work: 5

Social & Psychological Isolation From Society:

No. of times all people not in total agreement with the Family’s beliefs & practices depicted as ‘fools’ &/or ‘evil enemies’; & their ‘awful fate’: 118

No. of times the world outside the Family depicted as ‘all bad’ & ‘anti-Christ’, containing only ‘receivers’ or ‘rejecters’ of their message: 106

No. of times mainstream Christianity vilified to alienate the children from more normal & benign forms of religion: 28

No. of times children instructed on ‘security’ behavior/precautions against questions/investigation by outsiders & govt authorities: 26

No. of times children depicted preparing for ‘persecution’ (investigation) & ‘fleeing’ (escape from investigating authorities): 56

This condensed version is not totally accurate in that in the actual paper I put together I listed every page (by page number) that contained either a written description or illustrations that depicted each subject. Some pages had 2-3 illustrations of the subject matter, but I just listed the pages. So where I’ve got ‘No. of times’ in the version above, it’s only referring to the no. of pages and not the no. of actual illustrations on those pages depicting each subject. So in reality, the ‘number of depictions’ of some things will actually be higher than what is represented here.

I share these statistics in the hope that it may help some SGA's understand their childhoods a little better, and/or be an aid to some who are trying to help their FGA parents realize just how extremist and harmful TF’s child indoctrination actually was/is.

Cheers, Eva

Why don´t you post that whole study you made in a copyrighted PDF or sth? Being accurate IS important, and the subject couldn´t be more relevant.

Brilliant. When spelled out so plainly, its almost idiot-proof. But you know what they say, "Make it idiot-proof, and they'll make a better idiot."
