Are these guys still in business? Is Moon himself still alive?
I had a run-in with this bunch about 12 years ago during my agnostic years. I had never heard of the Unification Church before so it took me a while to figure out that they were the “Moonies.” Well, actually I had accepted an invitation to go with them to a mountain retreat for the weekend and in the car on the way there one said to me, “You’ve probably heard of our founder: Reverend Moon.” :eek:
I didn’t know anything about them at the time. Was I going be locked up, kept sleep deprived and hungry while they brain-washed me? Actually, it was very pleasant weekend. Mornings spent listening to lectures on their beliefs, afternoons canoeing and swimming. Super nice people. Kooky, but nice.
Anyone have a link to something about them from a Catholic perspective? Google “unification church” and “catholic” and you mostly get stuff about the African archbishop :dancing: who temporarily defected to them a few years back.
