Hey! Where’s My Coronation?
What’s this crap?
March 23, 2004. Dirksen Senate Office Building. A bunch of pols show up to honor Sun Myung Moon as “King of Peace.” One conservative lawmaker handed the tax cheat and jailbird cult leader a crown on a pillow. And to top it off, Reverend Moon declared himself the True Messiah (move over, Jesus).
So why does a loon like Moon get special treatment? Especially from so-called conservative politicians?
Sure, a North Korean expatriate ranting against Satanic communism is an easy sell to the religious right crowd. But throughout his book, Bad Moon Rising, reporter John Gorenfeld mentions some of Moon’s other “conservative” beliefs:
-- God spoke directly to Moon and said that Jesus screwed up, so it was up to Moon to save humanity.
-- Various dead US presidents have communicated their approval of Moon from the other side. On their behalf Richard Nixon stated: “We resolve and proclaim Rev. Sun is the Lord of the Second Advent, the Messiah, the Savior, and the True Parent.”
-- Christian churches should take down any crosses because the cross symbolizes Christ’s failure at messiahdom.
-- Caucasians are descended from polar bears.
Does any of this sound like traditional Christian American values?
But I know why I don’t get special treatment from politicians. Moon has one thing I don’t have. Money. Tons of it. And with lotsa money you can buy influence, even control.
If I had enough money, I could probably sponsor an act of ritual sex magick to call forth the Whore of Babylon right there in Congress.
Considering how things are going lately, I think someone beat me to it. And now we’re all going to get crowned.
