I thought this was VERY bizarre to sat the very least. Am I the only one who is concerned about this Moon guy exerting influence over congressmen? I think he's the owner of the Washington Times. Anyway he's declared himself Messiah and he did so in a Congressional Office with US Congressmen coronating him. Read this link. It's very bizarre.

The article describes attendence of the Sun Myung Moon event as:


They included conservatives, the traditional fans of Moon's newspaper: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Rep. Curt Weldon (R-PA.), Rep. Chris Cannon (R-Utah), Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.) and Republican strategy god Charlie Black, whose PR firm represents Ahmed Chalabis Iraqi National Congress. But there were also liberal House Democrats like Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.) and Davis. Rep. Harold Ford (D-Tenn.) later told the Memphis Flyer that he'd been erroneously listed on the program, but had never heard of the event, which was sponsored by the Washington Times Foundation.


Strange if true. Moonies were big scandalous news for a while, then kind of slipped from the public knowledge (for some strange reason). I've had my run-ins. In the mid 90's Moon was reported to be buying up incredible real estate deals in some parts of America with the following scam...

Buy one upper income mansion type house and move in the moonies! Such a "camp" was set up on the lawn of a home not two blocks from a house I had in Atlanta. Almost immediately the windows were boarded up, some sort of outhouse was rigged in the back and it became a sort of weighstation for the traveling disciples, with weekly festivals.

As property values fell, he bought the house next door for a steal! And on and on down the street. I learned from neighbors he was doing this all over America, was highly connected and had the money to make problems and fines go away until he got what he wanted.

Yes, it sounds like the plot from Pacific Heights, or an urban legend at best...but it happened to me!


The moonies are coming!

Yeah there used to be some Moonies around here years ago.

It appears that Washington has embraced this nut-bag.

It is strange considering usually they 'Waco' these guys quick. He seems to be gaining power in Washington. And he is Korean, whatever that means.

Wow, that is some crazy stuff. And this guy is getting money from the government?:



Moon's groups have taken home grant money from the Bush Administration, which has given his anti-sex missionaries $475,000 in Abstinence-Only dollars to bring Moon's crusade against "free sex" to both black New Jersey high-schoolers and native Africans. The Centers for Disease Control briefly announced that another Moon foundation was the only group qualified to receive another, no-bid grant for HIV education in Africa. Only after a competitor raised objections did the CDC cancel the grant program entirely. Meanwhile, one of Moon's top political movers, David Caprara, has been appointed by George W. Bush to head AmeriCorps VISTA; and another former church VIP, Josette Shiner, was given a senior trade position.


His points of view really show that this is a guy we should be giving money to:




...homosexuals whom he calls "dung-eating dogs" would be a thing of the past. He said in January: "Gays will be eliminated, the three Israels will unite. If not, then they will be burned.

...Moon's latest world tour calls on rabbis to repent for betraying Christ, the Jerusalem Post reported last week. Speaking in Arlington, VA in 2003, Moon said Hitler killed six million Jews as a penalty for this rejection.

...They have also honored at least one neo-Nazi, William Baker, former chair of the Holocaust-denying Populist Party.

...That was before he launched the Washington Times "in response to Heavens direction," as he would later say and a 20-year quest to make his enemies bow to him. He has also claimed, in newspaper ads taken out by the Unification Church, that Jesus, Confucius, and the Buddha have endorsed him. Muhammad, according to the 2002 ad, led the council in three cries of "mansei," or victory. And every dead U.S. president was there, too because Moon's gospel is inseparable from visions of true-blue American power.

Now, this March, Moon was telling guests at the Dirksen Senate Office Building that Hitler and Stalin, having cleaned up their acts, had, in a rare public statement from beyond the grave, called him "none other than humanity's Savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent."


This is beyond crazy, how can such an obvious megalomanic (to say the least) be given any room at all to create influence in government, never mind to the extent he's managed? It can't simply be his money.

Ah, I can smell the cyanide and Kool Aid already..........

I remeber in San Fransisco there was this big cinvention of Moonies. Me and my uncle were eating lunch, they were outside with picketsigns about AIDS being the just deserts of the "New Sodom and Gomorah" i.e., San Fransisco. They really didnt stand out much, cuz its California, which is full to the brim with nut case cults all over.

The reason he has gotten embraced by politicians is because of his nutjob views, views they hold but are too chicken# to express. Views like homos should all be fed to the sharks, and stuff like that.

Hes 80 something, hell eventually croak quick enough.

this is kinda kreepy to me. all the politicos that attended and
participated said that they had no clue that he would be there
or that they were simply there to support the washington times.


Among the more than 300 people who attended all or part of the ceremony was Sen. Mark Dayton, D-Minn., who now says he was honoring a constituent receiving a peace award and did not know Moon would be there.
omaha.com
i would think most congressmen or at least their security and assistants
would know everyone that would be taking part in this obviusly rather
elaborate ceremony. this is on of the scariest things i think i have ever
heard. at a time of such strife and chaos we have peices of prophecy
falling from the sky all over, not to mention meteors. if this guy is endorsed by hitler, stalin, krishna, buddha, christ, and mohammed is
givin the battle cry, who are we to oppose his messhianity? KREEEEEEEPY

One thing that bothers me is that he is a homophobic, a lunatic and he is receiving money from our government? That troubles me.

But does it surprise you? Last I checked the homophobic lunatic party controlled all three branches of government.

Now it makes more sense. From the article



a billionaire, pro-theocracy newspaper owner


What more could a politician ask for?

Perhaps he's the antichrist. There's another thread floating around that speculates this. People have discussed the idea that he could be the one known as Maitreya, but in another form.

NuTroll,

The more I read the more I think this guy is realy a loony, and what it bothersme is the ties between him and the senior Bush and the president.

Rev. Sun Myung Moons ex-daughter-in-law, Nansook Hong, has given first-person evidence of the Unification Churchs practice of violating U.S. currency laws. In a new book, she exposes Moons money-laundering and reveals the hypocrisy at the core of this right-wing powerhouse. October 1, 1998

At least he has been expose.
