There’s not much to say. He’s a footnote in the history of religion, or the history of Korean Christianity. In other words, he’s not Satan, he’s just insignificant. Okay, he’s an unusual personality and he had a few strokes of genius, like coming to the West. For instance, what makes him stand out from the other Korean “messiahs” of his time, is that he cleaned up his act, made himself respectable with one wife, no more pikareun ceremonies ( well, not so many); and came to the West. He hit the Western world and managed to convince a few (probably no more than 4000, tops) young, idealistic, good-hearted, naïve Americans (and Europeans) that he was the messiah, the second coming of Christ. With a strong barrier of language and culture separating the young converts from the truth about him and his practices, he was safe for many years. The only people that could tell the truth about him, had all been handsomely paid off to keep them quiet. Or, they had been tossed aside back in South Korea ,too poor, too insignificant to cause him any trouble.
In the U.S. for a few years, he passed himself off as a strong anti-communist, and I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt there. . Okay, he poured money into the Washington Times, and several other anti-communist causes. But why the goodwill trips, photo ops, and all the millions of dollars of investment poured into that hell on earth, North Korea? Did it ever improve anything there for the ordinary people? No. And I say this because, if it had, you can bet your boots we would all have heard about it a zillion times. Well, I may sound cynical, but I think it was to buy off the North Koreans’ silence about what they really knew about him.
After various “outreaches” to other groups failed, and his followers started raising young families, he tried to set himself up as being all in favor of family values, thus came into existence the Family Federation. That never quite made it. He tried pouring out money to Christian pastors, paid them for various things, free trips to Korea, etc. etc. all those conferences; free trips for scientists, theologians, and other assorted junkets. None of that quite did it either. Then in his later years he tried re-positioning himself as a global citizen interested in world peace. That didn’t quite do it either. No, despite spending millions and millions of dollars, none of this ever brought him the relationships, prestige and credibility he sought.
What has he left? Well, I’m sure there’s quite a few illegitimate children that the likes of you and me have never heard of. I mean, all that pikareuning – tends to create fatherless children. So you can imagine, there’s a lot of heartache and unhappiness there. Then there’s the incredibly wealthy trues – with their $130 million trust funds in Swiss banks. Then there’s all the business interests and assets – over which the trues are fighting right now, and draining off millions of dollars to pay for the law suits. And, all that they have is material wealth. I mean, does any one of them stand out as being ethical, moral, unselfish, or what we would commonly recognize as a “good person?” From what I’ve seen they’re not the kind of people I’d like my kids to emulate, or hold up as a good example.
What else has he left? - Well, there’s a small number of dedicated, usually poor and aging followers, with a few second generation kids that remain loyal to the organization surrounding the trues. Maybe I’m being unfair, but I can’t really think of anything that he left this world that’s positive, uplifting or of genuine benefit and lasting value to anyone. Okay, I did meet a remarkable number of outstanding people in and through the Unification Church, and many are still my dear friends today, even though most of us left the organization years ago. I think that’s a testimony to the quality of the people that joined the Unification Church back in the 70s, and early 80s. It’s not really about Rev. Moon.
He and his followers claimed he was the Messiah. So where’s the evidence? Did he begin the Kingdom of heaven on earth? Uh, no. For many, those marriages and families he created are miserable and loveless. Did he overcome Satan by revealing the Fall of Man? Uh no, he just went out and repeated it over and over. Did he ever heal anyone of anything ? Uh, no. So many of his loyal followers ended up ill, and with no money to pay for medical treatment. Did he found the lineage of God on earth? Uh, no. Did he create a “true family” ? Uh, no. So despite those and all the other claims of Rev. Moon and his apologists, I cannot see any messianic qualities, or one single thing in the way of a legacy that’s messianic.
Yeah, the more I think of it, the more I’m convinced he’s a minor footnote, and very insignificant.
But seriously… if you are in denial about a birth certificate…
In Jin is just following in her father’s footsteps. Let’s not forget that SMM had a few illegitimate children.
The UC PR has shown to be disingenuous and awfully clumsy, so it is interesting to see their next move. We have been told that In Jin has been planning a campaign against someone who knows too much about Ben Lorentzen (guess who?). Usually, the UC will just not comment about controversial matters unless they get insanely spread around, like this will be. We will not be surprised if this is denied or excused. Providential affair?
When we started this a few years ago, we knew it was just the beginning. This finding is just the tip of the iceberg.
Oh, email In Jin at firstname.lastname@example.org and feel free to speak your mind!
Here is the birth certificate of Erik Auston Shin-Jin Lorentzen, son of Ben Hugo Lorentzen of Finnsnes, Norway and Tia Lorentzen of Yong-San-Gu, South Korea (with the surname of Han at birth).
Here is a note from a dear friend who sent this:
In Jin moon, Tatiana Park, and now Tia Lorentzen… same date and place of birth.
The document is official, from the office. No point saying it’s forged.
Not only does it prove that IJM has been having a sexual affair for the past 3 years while being still married but she also has a baby now with her boyfriend.
All the ones who have known about the affair for a while do not need this official paper to believe the fact.
Others might not be that interested in her sex life outside her marriage anyway, which is fine.
Not mentioning the ones in denial who keep rejecting any kind of truth.
But facts must be shown especially when it’s hidden. People can think whatever they want from then on.
Giving sermons about family values while having an affair with one of her employees doesn’t give her much credibility as a public person even less a pastor.
Using the pulpit to either brag about herself , belittle her husband, criticize her brother, and whoever she has issues with instead of uplifting the crowd with meaningful sermons is not the way to inspire people on a Sunday service neither the purpose.
Ruling the movement by imposing everybody in America to listen to her sermons or by firing anyone who would have different ideas is abuse of power.
Having leaders cover for her is outrageous.
So here is the document. You can deny it, doubt it, question it, whatever, it’s out there.
Man Interviews Original Members of the UC (Part 1)
[NOTE: These are notes from the video. The speaker, Pascal, is French and has poor pronunciation of Japanese and Korean names. This video is worth watching, though, as well as the video series. This video series reveals the corrupt church history, the reality of Sun Myung Moon’s sexual affairs, and shows that the Divine Principle was not an original revelation. To watch all parts: http://vimeo.com/user7166405/videos/sort:date
A man named Pascal met Chung Hwa Pak, Hyo Min Eu, Duk Chin Kim (first people to start Moon’s church in 1944).
A few weeks ago I was in a bar having a beer with a couple of buddies I had grown up with. An incident came up in our conversation. A few weeks before that, the same incident had come up in a separate conversation with another friend. I didn’t bring it up in either case and yet there it was.
It was strange to me that this incident was so permanently ingrained in all of our memories. Of all the violence we had witnessed growing up, it shouldn’t have been particularly noteworthy. No one was bloodied, no teeth were knocked out. As Moon aggression went it was pretty moderate. And yet for some reason the incident was still very fresh in our minds.
…Five young boys sat on aching swollen knees in the otherwise empty New Yorker Hotel auditorium. Hyun Jin was speaking at us…
In Japanese there are many words that essentially mean “truth”, but two are especially interesting. Tatemae means the truth of things as they seem or appear from the outside, the facade. Honne means the truth of things as they really are. It makes sense that such distinction exists in a society so strictly organized and ceremonial, a society with little unconformity or crime…other than unconformity or crime that actually exists. Reality can be a troublesome thing if it doesn’t fit to artificial social rules. (Honne and Tatamae are concepts I first encountered watching the movie adaptation of the book “Freakonomics”.)
…Hyun Jin barked something about how we should follow the hard course in life, the difficult road. “Like going to Harvard”, he said, “the most difficult school in the world!”
“Actually, Caltech is the hardest school in the country”, replied one of the young boys…
The portrait of the Moon sons painted for gullible church members was of loving, caring, wise and wonderful people imbued with an intrinsic spiritual gift by virtue of their bloodline and experience with their parents. This was their facade, their tatemae. Our parents worshiped this truth without question.
The reality, or honne, however, was quite different. Nineteen year old kids never know anything worth teaching and the Moons were no exception. They had no special wisdom and no spiritual powers. In fact they were far worse. They had been brought up to believe they were the main characters of a fairy tale of new royalty here to rule the world. They were products of an entitlement upbringing, spoiled rotten, and had an almost pathological inability to empathize with other humans. The historical reality behind medieval fairy tales, the violent feudal lords and princes who murdered each other for power and preyed ruthlessly on their own subjects, was their model for conduct. And we, the BC’s, were the disposable extras in their story.
In Hyun Jin’s tatemae he was the obvious heir apparent to his father’s empire. He was tall, good looking and sang like Elvis. He brought great prestige to the Moon family by representing Korea at the Olympic Games (although, fittingly, it was on the back of another living thing). When he spoke publicly, it was a breath of fresh air from Hyo Jin’s incoherent and rage-filled rants. And he was even a good student, spending a year or two at Fordham University, but then transferring to the much more prestigious Columbia University and finishing an MBA at Harvard University on the merit of his good grades. The members ate it right up.
…The kid who spoke up that day was geeky and obsessively detail oriented. He was also by far the smartest person in the room. We used to play Trivial Pursuit with him – he’d be one team and the rest of us, five or six kids, were the other team. He would win. When he corrected Hyun Jin it wasn’t to be nasty or disrespectful. Nor was he being arrogant or self-congratulating. He was simply stating a fact.
Hyun Jin stopped talking – there was a familiar uncomfortable silence…
At the time he was becoming more active in BC and church affairs and appeared to be feeling out how best to meet what would later become his apparent ultimate objective – the throne of his father. But it must not have been exactly clear to him yet on how best to motivate and control people, whether through kindness, terror or some combination of both. “Love”, as his father preached (but didn’t live), was not on the table.
We had mostly seen the experiments with varying degrees of relative kindness – relative to his other brothers, that is – until that day. He had appeared reluctant to verbally abuse or physically assault people, generally preferring to lead by example. He wasn’t a crazy bully like Hyo Jin or a paranoid sociopath like Kook Jin.
…Hyun Jin lunged at the kid and belted him hard in the gut. Then he started screaming, lambasting him for his insolence, calling him a “fool”, a “faggot”, “worthless”, “stupid”, etc. Our friend slumped over in pain and didn’t fight back. The verbal assault went on for half an hour during which our friend was accused of everything from sexual depravity to high treason and conspiracy. To this day I deeply regret sitting through the incident and doing nothing about it.
A honne can be quite inconvenient when it stubbornly refuses to comply with a contrived tatamae. As a Moon, Hyun Jin was supposed to be the best in the room at everything. He was a member of the new royalty, a new Nietzsche-esq super person. But he wasn’t. In fact Hyun Jin wasn’t really that smart. Most of his college papers were written by well educated adult church members, not by him. The only reason he graduated from high school at all was because a BC friend did all his homework for him.
The incident betrayed some surprising personality traits. He was petty and insecure to have reacted so badly to someone correcting him. He was avaricious in his need to have control and power over others and overconfident in his own ability to correctly judge the intentions of others, on which he was dead wrong in this case. Worse still, he was unjust. The punishment didn’t fit the crime. But worst of all, he was a fraud. For all his talk of the hard road, his fixation was the image of success (Harvard) rather than the substance of it. I believe the incident was memorable because it was the first time we’d seen this from Hyun Jin. It got us thinking, what’s next? This isn’t the person we thought he was. He’s just as power-obsessed as the rest of them and apparently just as willing to use extreme methods to get his way.
After that incident rumors started circulating of other beatings, mostly of members. Then began the campaign to consolidate church businesses under UCI, of which he had been put in charge of by his father. A few years after the incident he showed up at the company my father worked for and demanded that they turn over the assets of the business to UCI. To the great credit and foresight of those running the firm, they refused. The same can’t be said for others, many of whom spent years working for submarket wages only to find themselves recently jobless because they weren’t sure which side to support.
With much of church business interests under control and the support of church members as heir apparent, in a surprise turn of events, he was asked by his father to step down. One can’t help but wonder why? What had his father seen? Something must have frightened him. Was it simply a test of faith or was there something more to it? Could his father have seen a little too much of himself in his son? Or maybe he was incensed at what appeared to be maneuvering behind his back by Chung Hwan Kwak, whose daughter was married to Hyun Jin. Then again, it might have been that he was turned against Hyun Jin by the whispers of his wife and other children, who no doubt feared and resented Hyun Jin’s popularity and first son status.
Someday the real story, the honne, of that palace intrigue will be laid out by someone who was there. And I’m sure the church hierarchy will be quick to deny it and try to “re-educate” members with a whitewashed, tearful, syrupy, vapid tatemae.
I consulted a couple of the other people who were there that day to make sure I had the story right. One wrote this. I laughed my ass off.
Actually it happened like this:
After Blue Suede Shoes (Hyun Jin) made that comment. **** (name removed) couldn’t help his Einsteinium nature to allow such inaccuracy and tried to correct Hyun’s statement with a respectful gentleman’s glance. But that fateful quick look upward for a fraction of a second crossed path with Hyun’s beady little eyes. **** probably didn’t even know if he did or not because he had a gush of blood daze for hanging his head through most of his banter. Hyun should of know that **** naturally subscribes to Princeton annual college review which give in depth stats of ind. colleges. But that was the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back. His blood turned from “wonder of himself” to “jail house bend over”. He squatted next to **** like a lieutenant in Guantanamo bay to teach the prisoner a lesson for such insolence. He squatted for a good 15 minutes over him. He voice grew louder “Did you know what the best school is (something to that affect)?” while smacking him in the head trying to provoke **** to spill the beans sort of speak. I think he repeated that ADHD line like 10 times. Then he paused and **** knowing he was cornered had to come out and say it. He thought to himself it’s better to get a beating then smell his preppy polo sport cologne for another hour.
Any by the way, you forgot that he got into Harvard because of Rev’s generous endowment to the university that year.
The kid (now all grown up) who was hit wrote this:
There are a couple of points in which my recollection differs factually, and I’m pretty sure about these:
1. This was a larger gathering. The place wasn’t packed, like at a major holiday, but it was probably half-full. It was definitely not an intimate setting with just five guys sitting there. I can’t recall the occasion, but I’m pretty sure it was mostly 2nd gen types.
2. HJ really belabored the point of the question. Several times he said “isn’t that so? isn’t it true that Harvard is the hardest school to get into?”. In the context of the talk, as I recall, he wasn’t using this to glorify himself by association with a prestigious institution, it was just a stupid rhetorical trick to get the audience to agree on an obvious thing (“the sky is blue, no?”) to support some unrelated point. So, he asked several times and finally I reluctantly offered dissent.
3. I’m pretty sure he didn’t hit me in the gut. If you’re sure you remember differently I’ll defer to that, but I really just recall slapping about the head, without any real damage.
As to background, I had just come back from a year in Europe, where lack of contact with the TF’s was actually really beneficial to people’s faith. For a long time there was a widespread belief that the TC’s will be good leaders “if only they hear the truth, and if people around them stop telling them what they want to hear, etc.” That was very much in my mind that day. I thought, “why should I have anything to fear if I speak honestly with sincerity.” The incident left me feeling not so much assaulted or reeling, but disappointed and betrayed. I realized that they are adults, responsible for their own actions and beliefs. People in Europe asked me “when you get to know them they are regular, sensible people, no?”, and subsequently I had to say “No, they will never treat you as a peer to be respected, and they are not interested in hearing what you have to say unless it confirms what they already think.”
A couple of weeks later, HJ’s wife sent me a suit through an intermediary (one of the Kwaks, who I didn’t really know and was clearly just sent on the errand). On the one hand, it’s an expression of chagrin, but it’s also not an apology, or admission of remorse. It’s an insulting act of patronage.
When I think back on all the time we spent with HJ and KJ, there is one moment that always sticks with me:
They seemed incredibly isolated, and that isolation was self-imposed. I never saw them acting warmly, with care and trust with anyone. Not their siblings, not their parents, not their companions. The distance was vigilantly maintained. I remember an evening with HJ in the rifle range at Barrytown, maybe five or six guys standing around. There is loose banter, somebody cracks a joke (nothing remotely inappropriate or off-color), and everybody shares it, chuckling. For a split-second it feels like a group of friends sharing a moment. All of a sudden HJ’s face goes dark, and he says “don’t you ever forget who I am, and who I represent.” The room goes silent, everybody snaps to attention, clasps hands behind back, fixes their gaze on the floor.
It’s something I don’t understand or care to address via armchair psychology, but it’s ****ed-up.
It’s interesting to me that so many people remember that ballroom incident. It’s not something I think about a lot, but it did represent a betrayal. The slapping didn’t hurt, but the failure to be recognized and treated as a human being did hurt.

According to Wikipedia, the Unification doctrine of the Fall is as follows:
”As a result of ‘The fall’, humans lost God’s lineage, and have been dominated by their ties to Satan. Unificationists believe that the fall is reversed through the Blessing Ceremony, which is understood to change a couple’s lineage back to that of God, cutting off the bloodline to Satan. The entire purpose of history is restoration of man back to the originally intended divine lineage of God.”
And the Fall, as Unificationists understand, was the sexual act between Adam and Eve. This act was not within marriage, which is the greatest sin. God could not dwell with such sinners.
The Fall pretty much cut humanity off from God and brought us under the dominion of Satan. The Fall pretty much ruined everything. And all the work of the prophets, saints, gurus, and the wise and righteous men of God was to restore humanity and bring us into God’s family. All of history—the Ark, Sodom and Gomorrah, the Exodus, Mary’s affair with Zecheriah, the murder of Jesus, King Charlemagne’s reign, the Crusades, the Shakers and their sex-less lifestyle, Korea’s occupation, the Holocaust—were all done in order to restore mankind.
God has been mourning for 6000 biblical years. His greatest desire is to claim us as His children, correct? And we have all been caught up in this world of sin and connected to the deceitful archangel, Lucifer.
And Sun Myung Moon has come to gloriously rip us apart from Satan and rejoin us to our God, our beloved Heavenly Parent. He is undoing the work of Satan and our sinful ancestors. He is undoing the unrighteous act of the sexual fall. His suffering, such as being imprisoned and hated, was all done in order to bring us back to the TRUE LOVE of God!
But what if you knew your Messiah, the perfect and true man of God who can do no sin [since he is in direct dominion with God in Heaven] did infact commit a sin? What if I go as far to say that your Messiah has in fact had sex with women outside of marriage? And he was imprisoned not for simply defending God in North Korea but bigamy? Yes, bigamy: “the act or condition of a person marrying another person while still being lawfully married to a second person.”
We were taught as kids that “Father” had a first marriage to a woman who could simply not handle being married to the Messiah. Moon actually left her and his baby son, Sung Jin, to go to North Korea. He came back to South Korea after a few years and lived nearby the village his wife, Song Il Choi, resided in but refused to visit her. Instead, he taught his glorious teachings. His wife really could not handle it. She could not handle having been married to a man who left her without notice for a few years, made her support herself and her baby son, refused to visit her, and was teaching things that went against her beliefs as a Christian. She wanted to be married but it was clear that Sun Myung Moon had different ideas.
Before Moon was officially divorced, he started cohabiting with a woman named Myung Hee Kim. The result of this cohabitation was a baby popping out of Myung Hee Kim. Then came the second [unmentioned] True Child, or second known [unmentioned]True Child, Hee Jin. Myung Hee Kim had to fleed Korea due to strict Korean laws on promiscuity and moved to Japan, where Hee Jin grew up. Hee Jin was killed in a train accident at 13 years old.
Some claim that Myung Hee and Sun Myung Moon were married and that justified their affair. Moon, though, never had any sort of Blessing Ceremony with Myung Hee Kim and never had a true, committed relationship with the woman. In fact, during this time there are many claims that he had sex with other women. The Blessing Ceremony is vital to the Unification Church’s couple’s salvation. The wedding of Hak Ja Han and Sun Myung Moon was extravagant and is seen as a very important date in history. It is also seen as prophecy being fulfilled from the Book of Revelation, as the Book mentions the “Marriage of the Lamb”. Myung Hee Kim was simply a mistress.
Now, so far, we have discussed two forgotten True Children outside the marriage of Moon and Han: Sung Jin and Hee Jin. Let us not forget Sammy Pak, the adopted son of Bo Hi Pak and brother of Jin Sung Pak (husband of In Jin Moon). Sam was indeed the offspring of Moon but had been adopted by Bo Hi Pak for Sam was the result of another Moon affair. How wild!
So if this man was undoing the crude, vile sexual acts of Adam and Eve… why is he doing the same? Is he really that “true”? That “perfect”? Is he actually in direct dominion with God? Or is he just an outstanding fraud? Seems like the latter to me.
This was posted before the shut down of HWDYKYM. Preston Moon (In Jin’s son) decided to respond to HWDYKYM in a very immature manner. He would later on make edits to his post that completely changed his tone and message.
Here we have the original blog written by Preston Moon, In Jin’s son. This is the third time we are addressing his blog because many of you still seem to think we’re attacking his family. The fact is, we’re responding to his attack on us. We’re not here to attack his family as much as those who are against George W. Bush and Barrack Obama are attacking the Bush and Obama families. We understand Preston’s mother and grandfather are spoken about in great detail, and their faults and mistakes are being displayed. And we acknowledge the fact that we had made the mistake of poking fun at members of the True Family who deserved no such action. We deleted those pictures of the Moon-Pak children and we’re marching forward in our aim to be professional and factual. But we’re bringing light to the many facts of the Unification Church and the “True Family” that many members deny and simply do not want to hear. If you can walk on with strong faith knowing with your whole heart that Moon has performed sexual rituals outside of marriage and goes on teaching the world a lifestyle while living another, then that is something I have to applaud you for. Such blind faith takes great strength.
Here is the text of the “Will the Real Naysayers please standup?!”, the entry by Preston Moon:
“Has anyone ever had a blog made about your family by a group of people who have nothing better to do in their lives who attempt to flaunt their self claimed, credible, logical arguments with the “extensive research” they have done only to make statements and accusations that are completely and sadly one-sided and deceitful? Sounds almost like a joke right? Well, lucky for me, I have found one! These writers who have apparently been through some experiences in which they were somehow hurt by the movement in one way or another have made this immature and childish decision to devote I’m assuming a considerable amount of time during their day to help the members, who really love God, TP and the values we stand for, realize the “darkness of the movement”. Wow, sounds pretty ominous and gloomy. But the thing is, what really is funny to me is that while they try to give off this image that they know everything, the ins and outs of the church and the family, they know nothing. You want to talk facts, that is a fact. All they are doing in looking at everything from their juvenile eyes, trying to really make sense of it with their really smart smart brains and if you add that with a little “I’m pretty sure i understand everything that is going on and I’m never wrong attitude and a little ouchy life experience. We got ourselves a bunch of misinformed, extremely negative and highly incredible statements that is nothing more than a puff of hot air. I really feel sorry for them.
So, if you ask me why I’m taking so much time out of my morning to rant about this blog if I believe it to be a pathetic attempt by a so-called network who I believe to be desperate attention seekers at the end of the day, my answer would tell you that for me, its personal. Not only are they lashing out at my extended family but also they chose to so low and talk about my immediate family and post personal pictures of me, my wife and my sister that they so clearly stole from my Facebook page. So, it turns out that one if not more than one of these so-called “writers” are my friends on Facebook! Only then will they have access to my personal pictures. If anyone lashed out your family, I don’t care if it’s through false accusations, emails, blogs, newspaper etc. You will, just like me, feel compelled to not only get pissed off but have this instinctual nature to defend the honor, image and privacy of your family.
If they’re trying this hard to get attention from all of us with the blog they’re obviously passionate about, why are they choosing to remain anonymous? If i believed in something, I wouldn’t care what people thought of me, I would proudly stand tall and let people see me for who I really am. Following that same logic, if this network really stands behind its accusations, I say be man enough about it and show yourselves or better yet, why don’t you tell us what you believe in front of our faces instead of posting it at some random blog on the internet? Can’t handle a little public scrutiny or pressure? Poor babies! If any of you guys are reading this, you guys made the choice to judge and insult me and my family, I say show yourselves to me so I can do the same to all of you. It’s only fair right? I really hope I can find out who you guys really are, the anticipation is killing me! Seriously, get your information straight. Your blog just shows that me that you really don’t have a single clue what you’re talking about. You’re just spewing the same kind of gas all the other misunderstood naysayers are saying all around the world. If you guys are really second generation from NJ, I have to say that I’m pretty saddened and disappointed to hear that especially considering the fact that some of you must have come to Lovin’ LIfe and probably had to opportunity to hang out with or my family who are genuinely trying so hard to love and support all of you guys. What a great way to repay us! Thank you so much for you generosity! You really think that everything my mom is saying is nothing more than brainwashing propoganda? You really think that my mom sends her ‘minions’ all over America to tell every one of her hatred towards her brother!! You honestly believe that? You all have issues to work out, but work at then quietly instead of trying to bring people who are living their life for God and service down just because you have nothing to lose but everything to gain. Just ask yourself this, how would you feel if you had a blog made about you, your sibling, your mother and your extended family while posting personal pictures of them on the internet while at the time being ridiculed and belittled with false information? Do you like the person you are becoming now? I would hate myself. In fact, do all of us a favor and do something productive in your life.
“Treat people the way you want to be treated” Sooner or later, what goes around, comes around. I suggest you get ready.
Me and my family regardless of what people say or do will continue doing what were doing because we truly believe in the difference that we are making. Our love for God and TP will never waiver.”
So… enough of that sweet, sweet arrogance and irrational emotion poured out from the soul of Preston Moon. The fact is people are following along and conforming to this Church’s ideology and being strangled by this community without knowing what they are supporting. They are supporting the production of weapons, they are investing into the lavish lifestyle of the Moon family, they are giving power and strength to corrupt folk like In Jin Moon, they are standing behind Reverend Moon and worshiping the fella as a “perfect man” and openly denying his affairs and questionable behavior (beating kids, right wing business deals, gambling, and so on), and the mistreatment of members throughout the world (the Movement in Japan, the Church’s personal economy, members in Southeast Asia, and so on).
So here we are. We are going to receive messages telling us we are misinformed and are downright shooting out slander onto the web. If that is what you decide to think of us, alright. We will continue informing others and upholding the righteous ideal of truthfulness. We encourage you to do the same.
This was posted before the shut down of HWDYKYM. Preston Moon (In Jin’s son) decided to respond to HWDYKYM in a very immature manner. He would later on make edits to his post that completely changed his tone and message.
Note: Preston wrote a blog calling us cowards, pathetic, and factless, but he removed most of those claims as well as all statements that would seem arrogant (such as claiming we just wanted to hang out with his family) in a revision of the blog made today. The current blog up is revised and what is written below this may not fully apply to his current entry. Nonetheless, we’re responding to what he did write.
For everyone following, supporting, going against us, or struggling to understand, we appreciate your time for reading How Well Do You Know Your Moon. Thank you. Recently, Preston Moon started his own blog and made a response to our blog. You can find his blog here: http://simplypreston.wordpress.com/
This is our response:
Real emotional Preston. I find it quite interesting how a person’s greatest strength could also be their greatest weakness. Passion and emotion can lead people to great places but can also stray people out of the reality and into bad places. Unfortunately for you and many others, you fail to be in touch with reality and rather live by emotion. Logic, common sense, and facts for some reason are not valuable to you and obviously you do not live by them.
“You want to talk facts, that is a fact.” What is your fact? Please enlighten me. Prove that these posts are not facts, is nothing but a rant full of hot air and a complete misunderstanding. Your post completely shows how much “hot air” you seem to be having.
“I really feel sorry for them.” No sympathy is needed from you. If you want to help, inform other members on the gun company your family owns while striving for world peace. Also, tell us of your grandfather’s sexual rituals or better more, explain the details of his extramarital affairs and the children that came out of these concubinal messes. This is a preview of other topics we will dig into. If you are not aware of these things, shows how many facts you know. But maybe you do know and you and your family obviously wish to hide these things from the public. Do you not want the world to know the absolute truth? You should feel much shame for this as it a human’s right to be knowledgeable of truths. Maybe I’m delusional in thinking you and your family thrives on censorship.
If you are truly hurt by those pictures, we understand and they are taken down. It just goes to show how contradictory both of you are. You succeed in this “New Progressive Unificationist” image, where the ideals the Church has supported, such as “absolute purity”, are being thrown out the window. So much for a conservative ideals which your splendid grandfather fought for in our nation. Many Unificationist have rightfully looked down on your behavior but have not spoken up on things like this, as well as many other issues.
Please do not jump to conclusions and try to sound intellectual. You may fool many others, but cannot fool everyone with your heart and pseudo-intelligence. Time is made and sacrificed for these posts because of what you and your family fail to disclose. Preston, you are very wrong about thinking pride comes out of this and we have nothing else to do. Actually, we have many other things that we have to do and we lead busy, productive lives. Unlike you, our families’ net worth does not remotely compare to yours.
Don’t be so arrogant and think this is all for you and your family. I do not take it as an opportunity to stick around your family. Become humble and start thinking about ridding your arrogance from yourself. If not, too bad for you. To answer your question of do we like ourselves now, well the fact that we’re of the few 2nd Generation speaking out and standing up against the negative aspects of the Movement is quite significant. The point of your sister’s picture was to show how contradictory you guys are, but I guess you don’t realize your own actions. So much for you and your family’s image. I thought this movement was about absolute love and absolute forgiveness but you clearly do not practice such things. Nonetheless, we do not need your love or forgiveness.
As for our identity, we will name ourselves in the future. As for now, take a try at debunking our past and upcoming articles. I suggest you need to get yourself ready for the ugly truth. Or maybe you are mentally weak to educate yourself on the matters by reading counter-criticism or ask your grandparents, parents and their siblings these kind of things. This truth and reality is why some people left in your family and they have made it very clear. Your aunt Un Jin does not even consider Moon a Messiah.
We will continue to write these articles to help educate others and you are nothing but a roadblock to this blog. People like you block the light from reaching others and this is unacceptable and we will not stand for it. But thanks for giving us publicity.
