As she grew up, travelling from commune to commune around the US, she witnessed orgies, prostitution and extreme violence against other kids. Mega A WOMAN who was forced to sleep with a married couple when she was just 11 years old has spoken out about her abuse at the hands of the Children of God cult.
The cult was a warped world created in by paedophile David Brandt Berg, and was centred on prostitution, violence and exorcism. The global cult merged traditional Christian beliefs with communal living, and sexual contact was allowed with children from around the age of 11 or 12 — the same age Berg had sex with his own daughter.
Christina Babin, now a mother-of-four, has finally spoken out about the horrific abuse she suffered by members of the brainwashed cult during childhood. Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, she said that when the assault was over, she was relieved but felt overwhelming guilt that she did not like it — explaining that children were controlled and coerced into believing sex was a good thing they were meant to enjoy.
Christina was just 11 when she was forced into an adult sexual relationship with a married couple. She also described how she and her siblings were sent out begging, giving children within the commune precious glimpses of life in the outside world.
Each commune was home to between three and 20 families at a time and they were regularly separated and shuffled around the world. When she was just 12 years old, she and her older brother were sent to Japan for a month-long camp — but without their mum. The month soon became two years away. During that time, Christina was forced to read the bible for hours, repeatedly pledge allegiance to the cult and put through punishing exercise regimes.
She was sent to several communes and was raped twice. A few years later, aged 15, Christina was moved on yet again. David Berg, the founder of the Children of God.

Christina found freedom when, aged 20, she met her future husband in a commune in Louisiana. When he encouraged her to visit his relatives, Christina saw her first glimpse of a normal healthy family life after two decades of control and abuse.
