Does anybody know where I can get information on where Sun Myung Moon's political donations are going? I've tried opensecrets.org, but found nothing for him. Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thanks!

More dangerous than the Dominionists?

AlterNet: Neil Bush Meets the Messiah

This "heavenly way," the Rev. Sun Myung Moon explained, demands a 51-mile underwater highway spanning Alaska and Russia. Sitting in the front row: Neil Bush, the brother of the president of the United States Rev. Sun Myung Moon, the South Korean giant of the religious right who owns the Washington Times, is on a 100-city speaking tour to promote his $200 billion "Peace King Tunnel" dream. As he describes it, the tunnel would be both a monument to his magnificence, and a totem to his prophecy of a unified Planet Earth. In this vision, the United Nations would be reinvented as an instrument of God's plan, and democracy and sexual freedom would crumble in the face of this faith-based glory...

Wow!!!! a Hiway linking Russia and Alaska.... seems like a great way to get an Army here.... or there.... nad religious Fascism more evil than the Dominionista's. They just want a Theocracy. Moon wants that and Jerusalem moved to Korea and to be worshipped as God....

I saw the "Coronation" of Moon video, (available via BitTorrent download) and was offended, appalled and downright livid at OUR Congress placing a Crown on this lunatic.

In 1989, U.S. News & World Report linked his group to the Heritage Foundation and other conservative organizations. "Because almost all conservative organizations in Washington ,b>have some ties to [Moon's] church</b>," wrote reporter John Judis, "conservatives ... fear repercussions if they expose the church's role."
As an American, I feel it my Sacred Duty to expose this turd's influence on American politics and Life.

How about you?

Stranger Than Fiction


Check out this Alternet story on the connection between the Bush family and Rev. Moon. Now, I had just about forgotten about the Moonies. I hadn't realized that they were still active and influential. Where does this gorup fit into the larger group of scary pseudo Christian groups?

Interesting blog


Rigorous Intuition talks about "Heavenly Deception" in this interesting post:

There was a thoughtful and rather uncomfortable piece by Bill Moyers that appeared a couple of weeks ago, one I'm sure he never expected to write, entitled "There is No Tomorrow":

One of the biggest changes in politics in my lifetime is that the delusional is no longer marginal. It has come in from the fringe, to sit in the seat of power in the Oval Office and in Congress. For the first time in our history, ideology and theology hold a monopoly of power in Washington.
I've reported on these people, following some of them from Texas to the West Bank. They are sincere, serious and polite as they tell you they feel called to help bring the rapture on as fulfillment of biblical prophecy.... The last time I Googled it, the rapture index stood at 144 -- just one point below the critical threshold when the whole thing will blow, the son of God will return, the righteous will enter Heaven and sinners will be condemned to eternal hellfire.Read more... )

Moonies at it again


While this community mainly concentrates on the excesses of the Christian Dominionists, it is clear that they have a rival for the theocratization of the US- the Unification Church. Moonies hold some major media outlets, like the Washington Times (not to be confused with the Washington Post), UPI, and lots of little businesses all over the country. They pretend to be Christian, but on closer examination, they are most definitely not.

This Alternet article talks about their latest sneaky tactic to take over the country: "Tear Down The Cross" ceremonies- desecration disguised as peacemaking.

In Monday's video, Bush declared: "I want to salute a man I respect: Wes Pruden," referring to the Times editor, whose paper frequently publicizes Moon projects that most newspapers would ignore. On December 7 he ran a piece by ACLC Rev. Donnie McLeod, who has argued for the removal of the cross in sermons covered by Unification Church publications.

The cross-disposal theologian wrote: "as the president is now free from the election concerns and can never be reelected, he can now build a legacy for America and the world." ACLC leaders, he said, "are ready to see the president as I see him, a man to God who is truly ready to make the sacrifices and commitments to create a legacy of faith and family that will guide our nation for the next 200 years."

The Washington Times Foundation is slippery to define, an organization with multiple public faces that morphs when convenient into the ACLC and other religious organizations. The Senate coronation, for example, was booked under the name of the foundation, though it was treated as a photo opportunity for the South Korean religious arm of the church, which trumpeted it as the U.S. government's official stamp of approval on plans for the future of Christianity.

A former Times editor, James Whalen, told me that the protean nature of the group makes it easy to involve national-level figures in "showcasing" Moon – yet conveniently allows politicians to claim, for example, that they only dropped by to lift a glass to the awesome investigative reporting of Times reporter Bill Gertz.

And meanwhile, at the other end of the invisible line between mainstream and eldrich, there is the ACLC and its persistence in seeing the Christian cross disposed of like nuclear waste. A month after Easter last year, the group flew holy men from all over the world to a graveside in Israel, where undertakers had draped a cross beneath the blue and yellow flag of Reverend Moon, and buried the cross forever – another casualty at the hands of the armies of compassion.

Spurred on by the likes of Bill O'Reilly, conservatives are outraged at the war against Christianity supposedly declared in department stores' "Happy Holidays" signs. But secularism is one thing, and sacrilege is something else, especially coming from Sun Myung Moon's cult, which indulges dreams of becoming the state religion. The president has built his reputation on being a good Methodist, but he rarely attends church, come to think of it. And he has cozied up to a desecration spree that Tim LaHaye couldn't make up in his "Left Behind" books. Is he what he pretends to be?

So, it is clear that there are many sects to watch out for. The Dominionists are by far the most powerful and most deceitful, but it's clear that the Moonies aren't far behind.
