A look into the evil Sex cult that put 4 year old Boys and Girls on Daily sex roster
Imagine a Cult so sick in its Operations where sick leaders put little girls on a “sharing schedule”, offering them to a different man for each night of the week.
The cult named Children of God and was founded in 1968 by David Brandt Berg in California and grew to 130 communities around the world, housing 13,000 members.
Berg convinced his brainwashed followers that the end of the world was coming and taught them that sex was the way to find God and that “death was the ultimate orgasm.”
Women had to make themselves available to any man who wanted to have sex with them, girls were placed on a sex “rota” from the age of 12 and boys – including tragic star River Phoenix – were sexually assaulted from the age of four.
Even Berg’s own son, Ricky Rodriguez, was brought up by a team of nannies who were encouraged to sexually abuse him “almost from birth.”
Children were also beaten, starved and made to exercise until they passed out in harsh ‘prison camps’.
Now, in a new Discovery documentary on cults, Christina and fellow survivor Jemima Farris have revealed the horror of growing up in the Children of God “family”.
Children were not allowed to go to school – instead Berg taught them about sex.
“You would wake up in the morning and they would be playing Father David’s words,” says Christina. “You would go to bed to somebody reading you his writings.”
Berg, a married dad of four who had been kicked out of the mainstream church, was obsessed with sex and told followers, “The devil hates sex. God loves it.”
Members were encouraged to imagine they were having sex with Jesus when they masturbated and to chant phrases like: “My pu**y is excited for you, Jesus.”
Women – both married and single – were expected to give their bodies to any man who wanted them and were forbidden to use birth control.
Attractive female members also became “Flirty Fishers” – women sent to seduce influential and wealthy men to raise money.
Initially, the sex was limited to adults but after the birth of Berg’s adopted son Ricky Rodriquez, in 1975, the cult took an even darker twist
Ricky – son of Berg’s lover Karen Zerby – was to become a “guinea pig” of sexual experimentation and, from birth, Berg surrounded him with a team of nannies who were instructed to “introduce him to sex”.
In 1982, when he was seven, his sick upbringing was documented in an illustrated book called The Story of Davidito, which included pictures of his sexual abuse and was distributed to communes around the world.
Before long a sick edict – known as the Law of Love – was issued at family meetings.
“David Berg’s letter said that anybody could have sex with anybody else regardless of age,” recalls Christina. “I sat in the meeting with everybody else reading that and I knew what it meant.
“It was now time for us children to be part of this.”
The group also set up “prison camps” in Japan, Thailand and the Philippines for teenagers who were considered “rebellious”, who were locked in solitary confinement for weeks, starved and beaten until they “confessed” their sins.
They were publicly spanked with a wooden board and forced to exercise in the blistering sun until they passed out.
After Berg’s death in 1994, Karen Zerby took over the cult and his son Ricky left to be an electrician in Tucson. But things turned Tragic for him
Haunted by the abuse he suffered, he set out for revenge.
In January 2005, he lured Angela Smith – one of the nannies who had abused him – to his flat and stabbed her to death.
He then drove to California where he shot himself in his car, leaving behind a video in which he says he is a vigilante, avenging children like him and his sisters.
The activities and documented Atrocities of the Cult got to the Knowledge of the Authorities and it wasn’t long before the law dismantled the last operative structures and no one heard of them again till this day
