FTR #452 The Mooning of America’s Teens

Record­ed March 28, 2004
MP3 One seg­ment
NB: This stream con­tains both FTRs #452 and #453, in sequence. Each is a 30-minute broad­cast.

One of the most grotesque actions of the Bush admin­is­tra­tion is the estab­lish­ment of fed­er­al fund­ing for pro­grams run by Sun Myung Moon’s Uni­fi­ca­tion Church. This pro­gram high­lights the nature of Free Teens USA, a teen absti­nence orga­ni­za­tion run by the Moonies and financed in part with your tax dol­lars! FTR# 291 sets forth infor­ma­tion indi­cat­ing that the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church is (in all prob­a­bil­i­ty) an exten­sion of the Japan­ese Patri­ot­ic and Ultra­na­tion­al­ist Soci­eties. (As the read­er exam­ines the infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed below, con­sid­er that this orga­ni­za­tion is derived from the most heinous ele­ments of Japan­ese fas­cism.)

Pro­gram High­lights Include: The bizarre sex­u­al prac­tices of the Moon orga­ni­za­tion (includ­ing the rec­om­men­da­tion that one should “pun­ish one’s love organ (with pli­ers if nec­es­sary)”; Moon’s claim to have the endorse­ment of 36 dead Amer­i­can pres­i­dents who are said to con­firm that he is the mes­si­ah; Moon’s close rela­tion­ship to for­mer Pres­i­dent George H.W. Bush; Moon’s close rela­tion­ship with key fig­ures in the admin­is­tra­tion of George W. Bush; Moon’s finan­cial sup­port for key Amer­i­can polit­i­cal fig­ures; the anti-Semit­ic, misog­y­nis­tic and anti-gay phi­los­o­phy of Moon; the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church’s per­ver­sion of Chris­tian­i­ty; the degree of Uni­fi­ca­tion­ist con­trol of the orga­ni­za­tions that receive fed­er­al funds.

1. The dis­cus­sion high­lights the Moon orga­ni­za­tion’s receipt of gov­ern­ment fund­ing under Bush’s “Faith-Based Ini­tia­tives” pro­gram. “Over­com­ing his church’s bizarre rep­u­ta­tion and his own crim­i­nal record, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon has cement­ed ties with the Bush administration—and gained gov­ern­ment fund­ing for his clos­est dis­ci­ples.”
(“Bad Moon on the Rise” by John Goren­feld; Salon; 9/24/2003; p. 1.)

2. In con­sid­er­able mea­sure because of his finan­cial con­tri­bu­tions to key polit­i­cal fig­ures, Moon has been able to muster an impres­sive array of polit­i­cal fig­ures to sup­port his pro­grams. “Last Decem­ber, at his three-day God and World Peace event, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon drew a notable slate of polit­i­cal fig­ures, from Sen. Richard Lugar, R‑Ind., to Rep. Dan­ny Davis, D‑Ill., and, per­haps most notably, James Towey, direc­tor of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Com­mu­ni­ty Ini­tia­tives, who offered some respect­ful open­ing remarks to Moon’s Uni­fi­ca­tion Church faith­ful. Moon fol­lowed, and called for all reli­gions to come togeth­er in sup­port of the Bush plan for faith-based ini­tia­tives.” (Idem.)

3. It is note­wor­thy that the sup­port for Moon comes despite the fact that his orga­ni­za­tion espous­es an utter­ly grotesque and alto­geth­er fascis­tic reli­gious and social phi­los­o­phy. (For more details con­cern­ing the beliefs of this orga­ni­za­tion, see RFA#7—available from Spit­fire.) “Com­ing from Moon that made per­fect sense, because he already believes all reli­gions will come together—under him. ‘The sep­a­ra­tion between reli­gion and pol­i­tics,’ he has observed on many occa­sions, ‘is what Satan likes most.’ His gospel: Jesus failed because he nev­er attained world­ly pow­er. Moon will suc­ceed, he says, by puri­fy­ing our sex-cor­rupt­ed cul­ture, and that includes clean­ing up gays (‘dung-eat­ing dogs,’ as he calls them) and Amer­i­can women (‘a line of pros­ti­tutes’). Jews had bet­ter repent too. (Moon claims that the Holo­caust was pay­back for the cru­ci­fix­ion of Christ: ‘Through the prin­ci­ple of indem­ni­ty, Hitler killed 6 mil­lion Jews.’) His solu­tion is a world theoc­ra­cy that will enforce prop­er sex­u­al habits in order to bring about heav­en on earth.” (Idem.)

4. His pre­scrip­tion for the sex­u­al train­ing of his dis­ci­ples is par­tic­u­lar­ly eye-open­ing. “What sort of prop­er sex­u­al habits? Accord­ing to Moon, in order to restore blood puri­ty, very spe­cif­ic prac­tices are pre­scribed. Sex before mar­riage is out of the ques­tion, and when sex­u­al con­sum­ma­tion does hap­pen, it must adhere to very spe­cif­ic instruc­tions. First, a pho­to­graph of Moon must be near­by, so that every­thing occurs under the rev­erend’s watch­ful eye. After two nights of woman-on-top sex, the cou­ple reverse posi­tions, where­upon the man, accord­ing to Moon restores domin­ion over Eve, via the prop­er mis­sion­ary posi­tion. Then, accord­ing to the instruc­tions attrib­uted to the U.C.‘s Amer­i­can Blessed Fam­i­ly Depart­ment, ‘after the act of love, both spous­es should wipe their sex­u­al areas with the Holy Handkerchief’—referring to the church-sup­plied washcloth—which must ‘be kept indi­vid­u­al­ly labeled and should nev­er be laun­dered or mixed up.’ ” (Idem.)

5. Among the Moon sub­sidiaries receiv­ing fed­er­al assis­tance under Bush’s faith-based ini­tia­tives pro­gram is Free Teens USA. “Incred­i­bly, it now appears that under the new pri­or­i­ties of the bud­ding Faith Based Ini­tia­tive, the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment has giv­en Moon dis­ci­ples its imprimatur—and fund­ing. Last sum­mer, the U.S. Depart­ment of Health and Human ser­vices gave a $475,280 grant to fund Free Teens USA, an after-school celiba­cy club in urban New Jer­sey. Free Teens USA, like oth­er Moon civic orga­ni­za­tions, claims it has no ties to the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church. But accord­ing to doc­u­ments obtained by Salon under the Free­dom of Infor­ma­tion Act, the direc­tor and chief finance offi­cer of the Free Teens USA club, as well as oth­ers list­ed on the group’s board of direc­tors, are for­mer or present high-rank­ing Uni­fi­ca­tion Church offi­cials who omit­ted those lead­er­ship roles from their appli­ca­tions for the fed­er­al grant.” (Idem.)

6. Among the fac­tors that has helped to pro­pel the orga­ni­za­tion into promi­nence it its gen­er­ous finan­cial sup­port for George H.W. Bush. (For more about this, see FTRs 84, 291.) “The small suc­cess of Free Teens’ gov­ern­ment fund­ing is just a small indi­ca­tion of the remark­able trans­for­ma­tion of the bil­lion­aire Moon. A man who once inspired con­sid­er­able pub­lic hor­ror in the 1970’s when his church faced a con­gres­sion­al inquiry and bat­tled accu­sa­tions of coer­cive recruit­ment and mind con­trol, not to men­tion his own crim­i­nal con­vic­tion for tax fraud and con­spir­a­cy to obstruct jus­tice, now goes about his busi­ness gen­er­al­ly unno­ticed. (The Uni­fi­ca­tion Church would not return calls for this sto­ry.) Along the way, he has been able to gain accep­tance by the most pow­er­ful peo­ple in the coun­try, sure­ly with the help of his media mini-empire—including the UPI wire ser­vice and the right-wing news­pa­pers Tiem­pos del Mun­do, in South Amer­i­ca, and the
Wash­ing­ton Times, which he runs at loss­es well into the tens of mil­lions every year. His exor­bi­tant spend­ing on politi­cians, large­ly con­ser­v­a­tive, has­n’t hurt either; his Wash­ing­ton Times foun­da­tion gave $1 mil­lion to the George H.W. Bush pres­i­den­tial library and has paid the for­mer pres­i­dent untold amounts in speak­ing fees.” (Ibid.; pp. 1–2.)

7. Moon is very close to George W. Bush as well. “And Moon has also made impres­sive head­way into the cur­rent Bush White House. Oth­er admin­is­tra­tion offi­cials have attend­ed Moon events, includ­ing then-incom­ing Attor­ney Gen­er­al John Ashcroft, who attend­ed Moon’s Inau­gur­al Prayer Lun­cheon for uni­ty and Renew­al, just before George W. Bush took office. And per­haps more impor­tant, oth­er for­mer and cur­rent mem­bers of his Uni­fi­ca­tion faith­ful have ascend­ed to high lev­els of the Bush admin­is­tra­tion.” (Ibid.; p. 2.)

8. As one reads about Free Teens USA, remember—this is your tax dol­lars at work. “There are many oth­er signs sug­gest­ing the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church keeps close tabs on Free Teens USA as prov­i­den­tial work for Moon. In a remark­able 2000 ser­mon titled ‘God’s Tylenol,’ Tyler Hen­dricks, pres­i­dent of Moon’s Fam­i­ly Fed­er­a­tion for World Peace and Uni­fi­ca­tion, prais­es the group, along with oth­er Moon non­prof­its, as help­ing to treat the ‘three headaches of God.’ For headaches No. 1 and 2 (‘the dis­uni­ty of Chris­tian­i­ty’ and ‘the scourge of Com­mu­nism,’ respec­tive­ly) Hen­dricks claims Moon brought God ‘Tylenol’ in the form of his char­i­ta­ble, con­fus­ing­ly named orga­ni­za­tions. For headache No. 3—youthful immorality—Hendricks says that Moon pre­scribed the med­i­cine of the Pure Love Alliance, Free Teens USA, and two oth­er groups. Indeed, he said, alum­ni of the sem­i­nary that’s unit­ing Chris­tian­i­ty are, even now, ‘on the front­line for the relief of God’s third headache, the decline of youth moral­i­ty and the fam­i­ly.’ ” (Idem.)

9. “In its grant appli­ca­tion to the Depart­ment of Health, Free Teens iden­ti­fies Mar­tin Porter as the group’s cen­tral fig­ure. Porter—who has a Ph.D. and an MBA from Cen­tu­ry Uni­ver­si­ty, a cor­re­spon­dence school that was in Cal­i­for­nia until it fled the state in the late ‘80’s to avoid new regulations—discloses that he was CEO of the ‘Tongil Trad­ing com­pa­ny’ in Toron­to from 1977 to 1983. But Porter was also Moon’s chief lieu­tenant in Cana­da from 1977 to 1983, and his face appeared through­out Toron­to on pro­mo­tion­al posters that called him ‘Moon’s Man in Cana­da,’ accord­ing to pub­lished Church his­to­ry. (Tongil, a Kore­an word for ‘uni­fi­ca­tion,’ sold gin­seng tea and vas­es, and it was also affil­i­at­ed with Moon’s fleet of tuna fish­ing boats.)” (Idem.)

10. “In the sum­mer 1987 issue of the Church pub­li­ca­tion Bless­ing Quar­ter­ly, Porter tes­ti­fied to a series of super­nat­ur­al visions he received in 1968 that led him to Moon. ‘I was sit­ting in my car, think­ing about Father and what he may be doing. I was unaware that on that par­tic­u­lar day the Bless­ing would take place. Sud­den­ly I saw lit­tle pink hearts appear in the car all around me!’ he wrote. ‘Spir­i­tu­al expe­ri­ences were so com­mon in those days, that if sev­er­al days went by with­out one, we thought there must be some­thing wrong.’ ” (Idem.)

11. Among the many Uni­fi­ca­tion­ists involved with Free Teens USA is the appro­pri­ate­ly named Richard Panz­er. “Sim­i­lar­ly, the appli­ca­tion does not men­tion that direc­tor Richard Panz­er was head of the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church of Rhode Island in the 1980’s, as well as the spe­cial projects direc­tor for Moon’s moral­i­ty lob­by­ing group, the Amer­i­can Free­dom Coali­tion. Free Teens’ direc­tors are also solid­ly Unificationist—with the notable excep­tion of New Jer­sey state assem­bly­man and Bap­tist pas­tor Alfred E. Steele. (Accord­ing to the Uni­fi­ca­tion News, Steele did once intro­duce Moon as a leader sent by God at a 2001 revival stop in Newark orga­nized by Free Teens direc­tor David Konn. Steele, list­ed as the pres­i­dent of Free Teens, did­n’t return calls for this sto­ry.)” (Idem.)

12. “Of Free Teens’ oth­er eight direc­tors, at least sev­en are close to the Moon orga­ni­za­tion. Among them: Direc­tor Holt, at one time comp­trol­ler of the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church, lists an address just down the block from Moon’s seclud­ed East Gar­den estate, 40 min­utes north of New York City.” (Ibid.; pp. 2–3.)

13. “The work­ing address of anoth­er direc­tor, Antho­ny Appia, has dou­bled as the offices of the Blessed Fam­i­ly Depart­ment, as well as Wash­ing­ton Times own­ers One Up Enter­pris­es, the Uni­fi­ca­tion Thought Insti­tute, and dozens of oth­er Moon reli­gious projects—according to var­i­ous lita­nies of ‘front groups’ com­piled by out­side observers of the church. One lists Appi­a’s 481 Eighth Ave. address no few­er than 66 times.” (Ibid.; p. 3.)

14. “David Konn is iden­ti­fied, in a law­suit against the gun com­pa­ny Kahr Arms, as the pres­i­dent of Kahr’s Moon-owned par­ent com­pa­ny Saei­lo, whose Web site adver­tis­es ‘Absolute Con­cealed Pow­er.’ (Here, Konn is shown bran­dish­ing 9 mm pis­tols.) Direc­tors William Gaigg and Bjorn Ottos­son both work with Moon’s jew­el­ry com­pa­ny, Chris­t­ian Bernard. Ottos­son is also a for­mer vice pres­i­dent of Moon’s cam­pus group CARP (Col­le­giate Asso­ci­a­tion for the Research of Prin­ci­ples).” (Idem.)

15. “Panz­er bris­tles at the idea that Free Teens—which cel­e­brates ‘Gen Xers . . . rebelling against their divorced baby boomer par­ents and seek[ing] last­ing love relationships’—in any way encour­ages a last­ing love rela­tion­ship with the True Father of the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church. He will not be made a part of a ‘con­spir­a­cy the­o­ry,’ he told Salon. ‘If roups found­ed by Catholics receive absti­nence fund­ing, as there sure­ly are, is that a sign the pope is infil­trat­ing the White House with his pro-chasti­ty beliefs and influ­ence?’ he said.” (Idem.)

16. “Panz­er main­tains that Free Teens is his idea, and his life’s work. But Free Teens was first alleged to be a Moon oper­a­tion in 1995, when a Free Teens pro­gram was dropped from pri­vate Catholic and Protes­tant schools on Long Island. Despite the bad press, the club has enjoyed the approval of the state of the New Jer­sey, whose $100,000 grant in 2001 was one step along the club’s jour­ney to fed­er­al fund­ing. The orga­ni­za­tion is based in three New Jer­sey cities and Westch­ester City, N.Y., employ­ing about 25 peo­ple, accord­ing to its tax forms, and claims to oper­ate in 38 states.” (Idem.)

17. More about the beliefs of Free Teens USA: “The group boasts a ‘real­i­ty cen­tered’ approach toward sex edu­ca­tion, summed up by a fair­ly sim­ple mes­sage: Don’t have sex before mar­riage, or you will prob­a­bly die. Free Teens host­ed a con­test at Mar­shall High School, Wis., in 1999, where teens were asked to com­pile a top-10 list of rea­sons not to have sex. The win­ing entries, cel­e­brat­ed on a Uni­fi­ca­tion-affil­i­at­ed Web site, includ­ed ‘if you don’t want to kick the buck­et, don’t knock the boot,’ (No. 3) and ‘Two words: Brighter future (No. 1.).” (Idem.)

18. “Sim­i­lar­ly, the specter of death hov­ers over the Free Teens Web site. There are grim moral­i­ty tales: ‘Mary’ testifies—with dic­tion and gram­mar so uneven it seems scripted—that ‘my son has not seen his father since the day he was born and I could’ve pre­vent­ed that had I wait­ed until I was mar­ried. I would not give up my son for the world but I will nev­er be able to give him the world, and every child deserves that. So if you care about your future chil­dren you will wait.’ ” (Idem.)

19. “Per­haps fear­ful her mes­sage will be mis­con­strued, Mary adds: ‘And don’t think that pro­tec­tion works, cause I used pro­tec­tion and it obvi­ous­ly did­n’t. Good luck!’ Anoth­er place on the site fea­tures Mag­ic John­son and inter­prets his tale of HIV sur­vival to mean that event the most healthy-look­ing sex part­ners might be car­ry­ing the see

ds of death. It’s even hint­ed that not even French-kissers are safe from HIV. The site also heav­i­ly spins a 2001 study from the Nation­al Insti­tutes of Health, say­ing that the ‘U.S. Gov Now DOUBTS Con­doms!’ And, in a Slo­gan rem­i­nis­cent of Moon’s empha­sis on the ‘blood lin­eage’ that binds the bib­li­cal Adam to the True Father, Free Teens implores its sub­jects with the mes­sage: ‘It’s not just your body, it’s your whole lin­eage for­ev­er.’ ” (Ibid.; pp. 3–4.)

20. “Free Teens rec­om­mends a class­room exer­cise in which teenagers spit into a cup, then are asked to trade with anoth­er stu­dent and drink out of it. The les­son: Sex is even more inti­mate, and it should be approached with all the vig­i­lance of drink­ing a warm cup of spit.” (Idem.)

21. “Panz­er, in an e‑mail inter­view, writes of the cup exer­cise, ‘We picked up this activ­i­ty at a nation­al absti­nence con­fer­ence sev­er­al years ago from anoth­er absti­nence group that was using it.’ As for its suc­cess, Free Teens cites a New Jer­sey tri­al show­ing that teenagers who par­tic­i­pate in their pro­gram are two-thirds more like­ly to agree with the state­ment ‘Sex­u­al inter­course can cause prob­lems for peo­ple of my age’ and that one-third were mak­ing plans to abstain from sex.” (Idem.)

22. “The men of Free Teens are not the only ones with Moon affil­i­a­tions to ben­e­fit from Bush largesse. Josette Shin­er, who rose up through the Moon orga­ni­za­tion first as a Wash­ing­ton Times reporter and Moon dis­ci­ple and lat­er as edi­tor of that news­pa­per, was named deputy trade rep­re­sen­ta­tive ear­li­er this year. In 1982 she told the Wash­ing­ton Post, ‘I joined the church full well know­ing it is some­thing not yet under­stood by soci­ety.’ In the 1990’s, she claimed to have bro­ken ties with Moon and become an Epis­co­palian. Her press sec­re­tary, Richard Mills, refused to com­ment on whether Shin­er had rethought Moon’s polit­i­cal views.” (Idem.)

23. “And in Decem­ber of last year, Bush appoint­ed David Caprara, a top offi­cial for Moon in Wash­ing­ton, to head the War on Pover­ty pro­gram Ameri­Corps VISTA. Caprara had been direc­tor of Moon’s Amer­i­can fam­i­ly coali­tion and was one of the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church’s top polit­i­cal oper­a­tives.” (Idem.)

24. Among the past involve­ments of the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church was its par­tic­i­pa­tion in the activ­i­ties that pro­duced the Iran-Con­tra scan­dal. “Moon has man­aged to forge pow­er­ful rela­tion­ships through a cause that trumps most con­cerns: pol­i­tics. In 1996, Moon praised com­mu­nism for pro­duc­ing obe­di­ent fol­low­ers ‘trained under total­i­tar­i­an­ism,’ who are ‘trained to fol­low once an order came from above, ‘unlike way­ward Amer­i­cans. ‘Indi­vid­u­al­ism is what God hates most,’ went his refrain in a 1987 speech). And today his busi­ness hold­ings include an auto­mo­tive com­pa­ny in U.S.-sanctioned North Korea. But before the fall of the Berlin Wall he ws the sworn ene­my of com­mu­nism, hav­ing formed an aver­sion to it in a prison camp of the bru­tal Kim Il Sung regime. Lat­er, he would play a key role in the Iran-Con­tra affair when the Wash­ing­ton Times cre­at­ed a fund that con­tributed the first 100,000 to Oliv­er North’s Nicaraguan Free­dom Fund. His fol­low­ers still take cred­it for it as a blow to the Reds.” (Idem.)

25. As dis­cussed in FTR#84, Moon’s finan­cial gen­eros­i­ty turned Jer­ry Fal­well from a hyp­ocrite into a whore. “Now he has found com­mon ground with the reli­gious right on sex­u­al absti­nence. The alliance is finan­cial, too. In 1995, it came to light that a debt-rid­den Jer­ry Fal­well (who told Esquire in 1978 that moon was ‘like the plague: he exploits boys and girls’) had qui­et­ly accept­ed $3.5 mil­lion from Moon’s Wom­en’s Fed­er­a­tion for World Peace (IWFWP) to bail out his Lib­er­ty Uni­ver­si­ty.” (Ibid.; pp. 4–5.)

26. More about Moon and George H.W. Bush: “Anoth­er impor­tant Moon con­tact is Pres­i­dent Bush (the father), who has spo­ken to Moonie-run caus­es abroad. The elder Bush defend­ed his close­ness with Moon strict­ly on philo­soph­i­cal grounds, telling The [Wash­ing­ton] Post through a spokesman that ‘this group is about strength­en­ing the fam­i­ly and that’s what Pres­i­dent and Mrs. Bush are deeply focused on.’ ” (Ibid.; p. 5.)

27. The fact that this orga­ni­za­tion is now receiv­ing fed­er­al funds is all the more amaz­ing when one con­sid­ers the stun­ning degree of occultism evi­denced by the Moonies. “The ques­tion is, do Bush and Moon mean the same thing when they talk about fam­i­ly val­ues? In the past, Moon has tak­en out full-page adver­tise­ments in news­pa­pers, tran­scrib­ing his com­mu­ni­ca­tions with the Spir­it World, where fig­ures from Con­fu­cius to for­mer U.S. Pres­i­dent James Buchanan have vouched that he is, indeed, the sav­ior of human­i­ty. Ear­li­er this month, a two-page tes­ti­mo­ni­al in the Wash­ing­ton Times quot­ed the 36 for­mer U.S. pres­i­dents ‘from the van­tage point of heav­en’ (Moon, accord­ing to George Wash­ing­ton, is ‘the mes­si­ah’).” (Idem.)

28. “This year, claim­ing instruc­tions from the True Father him­self, Uni­fi­ca­tion­ists announced that a new stage had begun in the rais­ing of Cheon Il Guk (or heav­en on earth). Believ­ing that the cru­ci­fix could be the last obsta­cle keep­ing Amer­i­ca from accept­ing Moon as the mes­si­ah, they have held con­fer­ences across the coun­try with ban­ners read­ing ‘Tear Down the Walls/Who is Rev. Moon?’ cul­mi­nat­ing in a final cru­ci­fix-bury­ing cer­e­mo­ny. Moon’s Fam­i­ly Fed­er­a­tion for World Peace Web site describes the inspi­ra­tion as a vision that the True Father first made pub­lic last year at the 20th anniver­sary par­ty of his Wash­ing­ton Times. (The speech, in which Moon said, ‘The Wash­ing­ton Times will become the instru­ment in spread­ing the truth about God to the world,’ sent many reporters to the bar for a drink, The Post report­ed.)” (Idem.)

29. Moon has been off the radar screens of orga­ni­za­tions that have tra­di­tion­al­ly mon­i­tored fas­cist groups. “But while Moon’s anti-cross rhetoric would sure­ly turn off many of his friends on the reli­gious right, he remains invis­i­ble in the media. Even though his rhetoric far sur­pass­es Louis Far­rakhan’s in vit­ri­ol towards Jews and gays, he goes unno­ticed by groups like the ADL, whose Web site high­lights the Nation of Islam as a hate group, while its only men­tion of Moon comes in a warn­ing about the vio­lent threats of extrem­ist rab­bi Meir Kahane (who in 1976 ‘declared war’ on Moon mis­sion­ar­ies, vow­ing none ‘would walk the street safe­ly’).” (Idem.)

30. The Uni­fi­ca­tion Church is pro­found­ly anti-semit­ic. “Dis­ci­ples insist it is a mis­take to take Moon’s words lit­er­al­ly, out of the con­text of the broad­er Divine Prin­ci­ple. They has­ten to add that the mas­sive archives of speech­es online are hasti­ly writ­ten trans­la­tions and are trust­wor­thy only in the orig­i­nal Kore­an. But at his Unification.net FAQ, web­mas­ter Dami­an Ander­son warns of any polit­i­cal­ly cor­rect dilu­tion of, for exam­ple, Moon’s attack on Jews. ‘The fact is that the Jew­ish peo­ple com­mit­ted a griev­ous sin in reject­ing the Lord, and the world is today com­mit­ting a griev­ous sin in reject­ing the Lord,’ he writes. ‘I will not water down what father said to please lib­er­al con­stituen­cies with his own church.’ ” (Idem.)

31. Again, con­sid­er that what fol­lows is “your tax dol­lars at work”! “With­in his church, his entreaties to cher­ish and pun­ish your ‘love organ’ (with pli­ers if nec­es­sary, he sug­gest­ed in 2001) man­age to find an audi­ence. On Blessed Chil­dren World, on online mes­sage board for kids of Uni­fi­ca­tion fam­i­lies, there is much dis­cus­sion of church beliefs. ‘I hate gay peo­ple,’ one B.C. observes. Oth­er B.C’s ask whether it’s a sin to go to the prom and debate a church d

octrine that rape vic­tims are con­sid­ered impure. ‘Kill your­self before you ARE raped,’ one posts. ‘Bite out your tongue and choke on your own blood if you need to. (No joke, that was in Father’s speech from some time ago). Any­how, I know it sounds total­ly NAZI of us to say/think/believe such things. . . .’ ” (Idem.)

32. “That frank admis­sion has since been delet­ed from a Nov. 1, 2002, mes­sage thread titled ‘I can­not accept rape=fall,’ in which oth­er posts con­tend sex­u­al puri­ty is ‘worth dying for.’ But the sen­ti­ment, at least, seems to be sup­port­ed by Moon’s speech­es.” (Ibid.; pp. 5–6.)

33. ” ‘If some­one is try­ing to invade you, you would rather kill your­self than go through the fall. At least you won’t go to hell that way . . . this means love comes before life,’ he told an audi­ence in 1992. For at all costs, women in Moon’s view must not reen­act the pri­mal wrong, the per­ver­sion Moon sees as respon­si­ble for the Fall. ‘There is noth­ing more impor­tant than the new lin­eage.’ ” (Ibid.; p. 6.)

  1. Accord­ing to Chung Hwa Park,who lis­tened to Moon’s teach­ings while in a North Kore­an Prison Camp,and who was released with Moon when UN troops end­ed the kore­an war in 1950, Moon prac­ticed sex­u­al rit­u­als with his female sup­port­ers, and was jailed on sev­er­al occa­sions in both parts of the coun­try for dis­turb­ing the peace. The prac­tice was a return­ing rit­u­al between his church mem­bers, until the satan­ic blood lin­eage was cleaned and changed into God’s lin­eage in order to enter the King­dom of Heav­en on Earth. As a result,these women were trained to become sex slaves for Moon,and lost their for­tune and hus­band to the UC.
    When his move­ment came under the super­vi­sion of the KCIA in 1960, a com­plete oppo­site sex­u­al behav­iour was being intro­duced by Moon, after his third mar­riage with True Moth­er. After the Fall of Com­mu­nism in 1990, Moon found­ed the Pure Love Alliance and Free Teens move­ments in Amer­i­ca and Europe, call­ing amer­i­can women pros­ti­tutes and homo­sex­u­als dung eat­ing dogs. He once lec­tured an audi­ence of Vips in Las Vegas, that man’s love organ was like a poi­so­nous snake.

  2. Why did Meir Kahane declare war on the Moonies? That has to be impor­tant. Kahane was Al Qaedas first kill on Amer­i­can soil.
