Subject: "Moon holds coronation at Capitol"

There's another report about the kinds of things that general ignorance about the cult problem makes possible.

Moon has gotten a lot of mileage by appealing to social and religious conservatives in the US, both with money and by co-opting the message of "family values", "christian values" and "world peace." (*) The Wheaton College student newspaper editor has even done an internship at the Washington Times, owned by Moon.

Moon parades around the Capitol, UBF holds a conference at Wheaton College, UBF holds large conferences at major universities: all made possible by ignorance, lack of information and the deceptive face that cults like to present.

(*) It's funny to hear UBF USA leaders also go on about America's Christian roots, about school prayer, about "In God We Trust", about America being the "City on a Hill" because it fits into the UBF "vision" and catchphrase of KOP & HN. (They are strangely mum about abortion, though. Hm.) Easier to talk about America's problems than their own.
