Bonkers. As far as I knew, the Moonies were just a crazy love cult from the 1970s. This 20-minute documentary changes things, saying how US Homeland security donated $300,000 to the Moonies so it could 'repair boats'; Rev. Sen Myung Moon has a fleet of boats that apparently supply most of America's sushi; the Moonies own the Washington Times; George Bush Snr. toured with Moon, speaking on his behalf in Japan and Argentina (that's not where the Bush/Moon links end); oh, and congressmen went to a ceremony in Washington crowning Rev. Moon the 'King of Peace'. Shit gets deeper. Enjoy:
'In 2004, journalist John Gorenfeld scooped the Washington press corps when he exposed a scandalous party on Capitol Hill, in which members of Congress watched as Moon held a ritual coronation for himself as the "King of Peace." Wearing a majestic cape and coronet, the publisher declared himself the Messiah. The New York Times editors compared the event, sponsored by a U.S. senator, to an act of the Roman emperor Caligula.
'That, as you might imagine, was just the tip of the iceberg.
'Bad Moon Rising takes you into the underbelly of the Religious Right. Which is surprisingly, scandalously entwined with Moon and his business empire--an untold chapter in American political history.'
