Congress bows to the Reverend Sun Yung Moon 

Will this event be covered as little and as late as the LAST Moon coronation? Koresh help us...if it weren't so, so, so...constitutionally obscene to everything America has stood for since 1776, this would be HILARIOUS. It is both, I suppose.

"Kingdom of God" to be revealed Wednesday at National Press Club


BACKGROUND: Intense media and public interest has arisen concerning an event held on March 23, 2004 at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C. Questions and controversies have swirled regarding the purpose of the event, what happened, who attended and why. Were dignitaries "duped" into attending? What about the provocative claims made by Rev. Moon? How did such an event take place on Capitol Hill? Are the charges of anti-semitism, homophobia, etc., true?

In attendance will be a number of rabbis, imams, priests and other religious leaders from the United States, Israel and Palestine, representing the event co-sponsors.

Internally, Moon's preachers have described the press conference as "the day of the revealing of the Kingdom Of God." So they're in a tight spot. Unless they bend the truth, they must play down the holy revelation aspect of the event, without contradicting what they've told their own followers about America's accepting Moon as its king. And to explain why Congressmen weren't "duped," they're under pressure to avoid embarrassing the politicians who want to distance themselves from views I linked to above.

...According to reader Rob, who attended, Rabbi Waldman attended, blew a shofar and was identified as being from Temple Beth Tephilath, apparently in suburban Detroit. And Archbishop Stallings threw a fit following a question about whether he'd taken money or a gold watch from Moon (he had).
