so typical of an alcoholic, back and forth, up and down, never making anything clear, saying do this, then no, do that, then this is right, no its' wrong. That drove me crazy in the F., trying to follow berg everytime he got a new revelation and changed his mind. After awhile I didn't know whether I was coming or going.
I can't believe after all those quotes you are still defending berg. He actually had incest with his daughters and his grandaughter and fantasized about having sex with his mother. Then he implied it was ok - go for it if you have the faith for it - why not, he already was. Whether you want to call that a doctrine or not, doesn't matter to me, the facts are appalling enough. THe fact that YOU aren't appalled is appalling to me.
