Moon and his wife after their ‘coronation’

In March 2004, Moon convened an extarordinary ceremony in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, ostensibly as an awards ceremony for ‘peace ambassadors’, in front of several dozens members of Congress and over two hundred other guests. In a speech after the awards were presented Moon pronounced “I am God’s ambassador, sent to earth with His full authority. I am sent to accomplish His command to save the world’s six billion people, restoring them to Heaven with the original goodness in which they were created.”

“The five great saints and many other leaders in the spirit world, including even Communist leaders such as Marx and Lenin, who committed all manner of barbarity and murders on earth, and dictators such as Hitler and Stalin, have found strength in my teachings, mended their ways and been reborn as new persons. Emperors, kings and presidents who enjoyed opulence and power on earth, and even journalists who had worldwide fame, have now placed themselves at the forefront of the column of the true love revolution,” he said. [9]

“They have declared to all Heaven and Earth that Reverend Sun Myung Moon is none other than humanity’s Savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent. This resolution has been announced on every corner of the globe,” he said. [10]

Moon’s extraordinary announcement that he was the humanity’s saviour went unreported, other than in the Washington Times. In June 2004, Salon writer, John Gorenfield, reported the event and that some members of Congress claimed that they did not know the “Moonie nature of the group or that they did not know the event would evolve into a messianic coronation”. Its invitation, however, listed Moon’s Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace as event’s primary sponsor.

While most of the attending members of Congress denied previous knowledge of the specifics of the ceremony, Rep. Danny Davis (D-Ill.) both spoke and donned white gloves to assist in placing a crown on Moon’s head. [11]

Rep. Roscoe Bartlett was honored himself, receiving an Ambassador of Peace Medal from the Washington Times Foundation. [12]

Reps. Curt Weldon and Elijah Cummings also gave speeches. Weldon’s office initially denied even his attendance, but was forced to change its stance when a photo surfaced showing Weldon onstage standing beside a picture of himself pinning a small lapel pin onto Libyan strongman Muammar Qadhafi.

  1. Hasta el presente, la gente ha estado inclinada a pensar que la vida religiosa pertenecía a algún plano en el aire más allá de la vida humana, y se imaginaban que Dios los haría desaparecer hacia el cielo con Su poder. Sin embargo la manera del cielo es ensanchar el alcance de nuestro amor amando a la gente en nuestros hogares, amando a nuestros vecinos, a nuestros amigos, parientes, clanes, a las naciones, y a la población entera del mundo.

  2. Sorry, I don’t speak Spanish, so I had to rely on a translator and perhaps missed something in what you are saying…

    I am all for people who want to “widen the reach of our (I’m assuming collective) love.” You can call that God, or “the Sky” or the Flying Spagetti Monster for all I care. More power to you.

    That being said, Moon has proven himself to be little more that a xenophobe with deep pockets. Moon preaches that gays are “dung-eating dogs,” Jews brought on the Holocaust by betraying Jesus, and the U.S. Constitution should be scrapped in favor of a system he calls “Godism” — with him in charge. Not very loving at all if you ask me.

    Knowing this, that this ex-felon owns a major U.S. Newspaper and has the connections to have his own fantasy coronation in what is supposed to be a secular building scares me deeply. Since the Washington Times does not make it obvious who is behind them, I felt that it is my duty to present this information to as many people as possible. Hopefully you are now one of them.
