Rev. Sun Myung Moon|
Crowned "King of Peace" At Capitol Coronation Ceremony
Kept Secret From Public Until Now
WARNING! Both Presidents Bush support the ACLC, the group which is encouraging their American churches to throw their Christian Crosses in the trash -- literally toss it into a dumpster! The Rev. Moon organization is also pushing for churches to throw out their crosses.

Rev. Moon Holds Coronation at Capitol
Religious leader says he's here to 'save the world's 6 billion people'
Dressed in a floor-length cape, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon was dubbed the
king of peace at a coronation ceremony in the Dirksen Senate Office
Building attended by several members of Congress.
Moon is the founder of the Unification Church - currently known as The
Family Federation for World Peace and Unification.
According to columnist Bill Berkowitz, on March 23 Moon presided over the
event during which he presented the "Crown of Peace" award to a number of
Several U.S. members of Congress - Democrats Sen. Mark Dayton of
Minnesota, Rep. Danny K. Davis of Illinois, Rep. Sanford D. Bishop Jr. of
Georgia; Republicans Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett of Maryland, Rep. Christopher
B. Cannon of Utah, and Rep. Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania - received
"Ambassadors for Peace" awards, Berkowitz wrote. There were reportedly 81
members of Congress total at the event.
"Decked-out in a campy floor-length cape, the Rev. Moon was presented with
an ornate gold crown and a lifetime achievement award," wrote the
columnist. "Introduced by a shofar-blowing rabbi, the reverend told the
star-studded audience ... that a 'new era' had come: 'Open your hearts and
receive the secrets that heaven is disclosing in this age through me.'"
The religious leader, sounding like a self-proclaimed messiah, is quoted
as saying: "In the context of heaven's providence, I am God's ambassador,
sent to earth with His full authority. I am sent to accomplish His command
to save the world's 6 billion people, restoring them to heaven with the
original goodness in which they were created."
Joseph Farah, WND editor and host of Joseph Farah's WorldNetDaily
RadioActive program, questioned the use of a taxpayer supported facility
for a religious event.
"Do you think this is an appropriate event to take place in your U.S.
Capitol?" Farah asked listeners today. "Does this disturb you at all?"
Callers to his program expressed concern.
"This is getting pretty scary," said Thelma, a caller from Montana.
"Sounds like we're being governed by cults."
According to Berkowitz, Moon, after living in the U.S. for 34 years, plans
to return to his native Korea.
Though Moon, who founded the Washington Times, is often praised by
political conservatives, he says he has grand plans to help institute
"Even if the Rev. Moon is threatening to leave the U.S. ... one of his
long-term projects - developing a faith-based path to peace by re-vamping
the United Nations - is still on the organization's front burner," writes
"With so many other things on its plate these days it's hard to imagine
the U.N. actually taking up the Rev. Moon's challenge. But then who would
have imagined the Rev. Moon, in cape and crown, parading about the Dirksen
Senate Office Building?"
Farah pointed out the mainstream media failed to report the coronation
