Why does America not know about Rev. Moon's "coronation" at the Capitol?
Edited on Tue Oct-19-04 05:10 AM by plastic_turkeys
I'm guessing Ma and Pa Heartland would freak if they had been made aware of this.




The Rev. Sun Myung Moon, former felon and current owner of The Washington Times, was the man in the spotlight, declaring himself humanitys savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent.

One of Moons claims that evening was that Hitler and Stalin have found strength in my teachings, mended their ways and been reborn as new persons. Open your hearts and receive the secrets that heaven is disclosing in this age through me.

A fascinating article, tying in "Concerned Women for America" (Sandy Rios), Oliver North and your other favorite fundies:
=======
Sun Myung Moon/Unification Church Front Groups
and Christian Right Political Leadership

http://watch.pair.com/moon.html

Excerpt:

CHEY: Well, this is as you said, from the article "Unholy Alliance" by Carolyn Weaver that was published in the January, 1986 Mother Jones Magazine. I'll give you some quick background. It details the letter written by, dictated by Tim LaHaye, a thank you letter to Colonel Bo Hi Pak of the Washington Times, 2nd in command to Rev. Moon, for a sizable contribution to American Coalition for Traditional Values.

KELLEIGH: Which is Tim LaHaye's organization.

CHEY: Yes. It also mentions Concerned Women for America. The author, Carolyn Weaver, gives a direct quote from one of Moon's books at the end of the article. This is from Rev. Sun Myung Moon's book, "The Master Speaks",

"My dream is to organize a Christian political party including the Protestant denominations, Catholics and all the religious sects. Then the communist power will be helpless before ours. We have to purge the corrupted politicians and the sons of God must rule the world. The separation between religion and politics is what Satan likes most. ...Upon my command to the Europeans and others throughout the world to come live in the U.S., wouldn't they obey me? Then what would happen? We can embrace the religious world in one arm and the political world in the other. With this great ideology, if you are not confident to do this, you had better die!"

KELLEIGH: Yeah... and if he gains total control which he's doing very quickly....I know the guy's got to die, he's not going to live forever. But, if he does continue with this control, isn't he part and parcel of the New World Order?

CHEY: Well, he is because he plays to the conservative, the politically conservative Christians and provides the Washington Times newspaper and networks very strongly with Christian activists and Christian pastors through all these front groups, and on the other hand, he also funded and networked with all the eastern religions and the very liberal.... On the Internet you can find one of his web sites promoting the U.N. Habitat II Conference that was held in Istanbul last year. So he is working both sides very avidly.

KELLEIGH: He wants to join them together.

CHEY: Umhum. That's what "unification" is all about. Unify everything under a big world religion. He financed the World Parliament of Religions that included the Covenant of Isis and all of these Theosophical Society groups and Christian Groups. Some of the Baptist churches participated in that. So, it's a very, very dangerous thing.

1. "true parent"? is this what shrub meant when he said a "higher father"?
remember when someone asked him if he asked poppy about something or other, and shrub said that he spoke to a "higher father"?

4. They fear that you and I can not handle the truth.
They know that if the people were trusted with the truth, Congress would be cleaned out at the next election.

6. now I ask you . . . if something similar had happened in the Clinton . . .
administration, is there anyone who doubts that it would have been front page news for months? . . . with the headlines in LARGE font? . . . anyone who thinks that the media in this country is unbiased and interesting in reporting the news thoroughly and accurately is a fool . . . it's nothing but a corporate front interested in maximizing profits by sensationalizing the most trivial of events (and non-events) while ignoring stories that actually have an impact on the nation and the world . . .
