"Reverend" Sun-myung Moon, AKA "Father," leader of the Unification Church, convicted felon, self proclaimed messiah, sits atop a massive fortune built on alms gathered by an army of dazed converts, many recruited from teenagers on the run and lonely, vulnerable young adults. He has bought power and influence wherever he can find it. But today the vast majority of his support flows openly to and from the Republican Party and the traditional socially conservative base. Rev. Moon:But look at America. It is rotten, top to bottom. There is nothing to be proud of, not their way of walking or talking or thinking.
It's really a measure of the stunning chutzpah of conservative Republicans that they expect to sail along without being called out on working with a notorious '70s cult leader ... and a deeply cynical Washington media doesn't think it's worth telling the public about. People literally have no idea that Moon is jetting around with George H.W. Bush; it's the ultimate proof of how cynical the GOP is, when they're working with a group that has hurt so many families. -- John GorenfeldCan we go back to where the religious leaders that support various parties and candidates are not the primary political topic? I would match up the Democratic religious leaders with the nasty Republican religious leaders, who have much more influence and power, any time, any day.
