Yes, I know. The politically correct term these days is “new religious movement….”
Journalist Richard Miniter says followers of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon made his life a living hell after he became editorial page editor of the Washington Times in March. Unification Church cronies allegedly forced him to work when he had health problems, they purportedly discriminated against him because he was over the age of 40 and — horror of horrors — they made him attend a Moonie Mass Wedding.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is being summoned. Lawyers are being called in.
Now, I wouldn’t want anybody to discriminate against me for being 42 years old, and I don’t want to be forced to work if I’m sick. But watching a Mass Wedding? Sign me up. That’s sounds pretty darned interesting. And if I’m getting paid, all the better. Just don’t make me wear one of those frilly robes and pointy-tipped tiaras so popular with the Savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent.
Moon has described the Washington Times as his “instrument in spreading the truth about God to the world”.
In 2004, Moon was crowned the “King of Peace” [I'm not making this up] in a ceremony in the U.S. Senate’s Dirksen Office Building [I kid you not.]
