The Rev. Sun Myung Moon died at age 92 in Seoul, Korea. He founded the Unification Church, a cult that taught that Jesus Christ did not finish his work, due to his unfortunate crucifixion, but that a new Messiah from Korea would, about this time, be raised up–the implication being himself–to complete his mission. Rev. Moon also established a financial empire, including a number of conservative institutions, such as the Washington Times newspaper. See Rev. Moon, religious and political leader, dies in South Korea at 92 – CNN.com.
Parents used to hire people to kidnap their children from the Unification Church to “deprogram” them out of the cult. Now, it seems like it has become more socially acceptable.
Did any of you get sucked into any of this?
