Moon Has Announced (again) he's lord and Messiah at Congress reception

In 1992 Revelation Sung Myung Moon declared himself as the Lord of the 2nd advent.

10 years later newspaper ads were taken out (2002) by the Unification Church. They said that in the spirit world Jesus, Confucius, and the Buddha, Muhammad, have endorsed him. Even dead U.S. president was there, as Moon's gospel is includes plans for America. 

Now at 84 years old Sun Myung Moon has stated this in front of Americas congressmen. The Korean-born businessman and religious leader delivered a long speech saying he was “sent to Earth ... to save the world's 6 billion people. ... Emperors, kings and presidents ... 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.”

(CNSNews.com) - When the Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his wife were crowned the “King and Queen of Peace” on March 23rd -- inside the Dirksen Senate Office Building with Members of Congress looking on -- few news outlets took notice.

Details of the ceremony - first reported by Salon.com writer John Gorenfeld - have prompted several legislators to say they were misled or duped by organizers. (The Seattle Times Company Wednesday, June 23, 2004).

The Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace, a Moonie organization sponsored the March 23, 2004 ceremony. They flew in nearly 100 religious leaders from all 50 states to receive “Crown of Peace” awards. Moon and his wife were honored as “King and Queen of Peace.”

It was reported that the Rev. Walter Fauntroy, a Democrat who was Washington, D.C.'s congressional delegate for 10 years, was the event's master of ceremonies and recipient of a “National Crown of Peace” award.

In a Washington Post description of the event, more than a dozen lawmakers were there, and one of them - Rep. Danny Davis (D-Ill.) -- “wore white gloves and carried a pillow holding an ornate crown that was placed on Moon's head.”

Someone may have to look into what some of our congressman believe, I find what is being reported as distressing.

Davis said he is a lifelong Methodist who does not agree with many of Moon's religious teachings, but he praised Moon's efforts to promote world peace. Davis said Moon associates have donated money to his congressional campaigns, but that has nothing to do with his support for Moon's organization. (The Seattle Times Company Wednesday, June 23, 2004)

Since Moon's public “coronation” as Messiah, numerous people are questioning the appropriateness of allowing this to take place inside a government building. Moon spoke of his communication with the “spirit world.” “The founders of five great religions and many other leaders in the spirit world, including even communist leaders such as Marx and Lenin ... and dictators such as Hitler and Stain, have found strength in my teachings, mended their ways and been reborn as new persons,” said Moon at the ceremony.

Later at a press conference, it was reported that Jewish, Muslim and Christian representatives from the organization that sponsored Moon's coronation unapologetically defended the ceremony, its location, and Moon's Messiah declaration.

Archbishop George A. Stallings, Jr., an organizer of the March 23 event and pastor of an independent African-American Catholic congregation excused it saying, “It was the spirit world that said he was the Messiah.” Holding the ceremony in a U.S. Senate office building on Capitol Hill was meant to “elevate to a level of prominence” the achievements of award recipients.

“Every American citizen has a right to have access to any facility that is considered the property of the people of the United States of America, regardless of one's religious, political, racial or ethnic affiliation or association,” Stallings said on Wednesday.

Members of Congress who attended Moon's “coronation” are now trying to distance themselves from Moon - whose organization also owns the Washington Times newspaper.

Rabbi Waldmann from Detroit, Michigan blew the “shofar,” ram's horn at the awards ceremony, something that is reserved for the high holy days. The Rabbi commented “I experienced a miracle on March 23rd. “I have never experienced Jews, Christians, and Muslims united in such a strong commitment to unity and peace. These people are simply coming together as brothers and sisters, breaking down the hatred and separation that is causing so much bloodshed. Rev. Moon is teaching about the one true God, the God of our common father Abraham, and causing his children to come together,” Waldmann said.

Seems that Moon is having one last fling at the expense of prominent people in religion and government before he enters the spirit world to find out the truth.
