The Berg Family 1961.
The Children of God, founded by DAVID BERG, claims that sex is a good recruitment and conversion tool.
According to Stephen Kent, a University of Alberta sociologist who has studied the group:
"Especially in the early days, Berg was virulently anti-American, and that anti-American virulence fit very well with Gadhafi."
"Thanks to The Children of God's free love tendencies, at least one child was born from a union between a woman in the group and a high-ranking official in Gadhafi's regime, Kent said."
