Full Moon

Every so often I stumble across a person or organization that makes the Catholic Church look positively enlightened when it comes to gays and lesbians. Rev. Sun Myung Moon is that man. Here’s a quote from Father Moon from 1997:

“Is the world around us a peaceful world centered upon God, or is it all confused? (Confused.) That is what is called free sex. What is the meaning of lesbians and homosexuals? That is the place where all different kinds of dung collect. We have to end that behavior. When this kind of dirty relationship is taking place between human beings, God cannot be happy. That is what the secular world is like. Only Satan and dirty dung eating dogs go after that. God created human beings and they should stay away from it. Isn’t it true? (YES!) There are certain kinds of dogs that go after dung and eat it. Those people who love dung eating dogs must have some problem. Especially American people, and American leaders. If they truly love such dogs, they also become like dung eating dogs and produce that quality of life. If such dogs are around can’t you smell them? Do you want to be close to them or far away? (Far away.) American people, their mind wants to get away, but their bodies are still being pulled by these dung eating dogs. That’s true! Free sex activity is equivalent to this.”

In 2003 Moon began his “tear down” or “take down the cross” campaign. The campaign was begun in the belief that the cross is a reminder of Jesus’ pain and has been a source of division between people of different faiths. The campaign included a “burial” ceremony for the cross and a crown to be put in its place.

Unification Church theologian and seminary dean Andrew Wilson said, “You all know some of the arguments and explanations that Father Moon has given to explain why churches should take down the cross. By far the most important reason is the pain in the heart of God. The crucifixion was not something that God loves, but something that God hates. It hurts every time he sees people glorifying the cross, which was the instrument of execution used to kill his beloved son.”

Salon.com writer John Gorenfeld said, “You couldn’t really spell it out any more explicitly short of renting a blimp to carry a fluttering ‘Moon wants you to dump Jesus and crown Moon king instead’ banner.”
