An interview with Ben Lorentzen by Yolanda Brener
We would like to remind you of an important and beautiful American church tradition, the “National Tithe (donation),” a condition that True Parents requested of all members and families many, many years ago. Early in 1961 he said, “You should offer three-tenths of your income: one-tenth for the nation, one-tenth for the world and one-tenth for the church.” (10-218, 1961.4.18).
It was in that spirit in 2003 that we began the National Tithe of $40 per month. So many of you have continued that tradition until today and we sincerely thank you. However, it has not been emphasized for years, and we would like now to re-introduce the opportunity to make a National Tithe to all members. We would like to encourage you now to tithe $40, $70 ,$120, $210 or more per month - to fulfill True Father’s guidance to us.
The National Tithe is very important. True Mother has asked America to play a leading role in the 2020 project, and to set an example as a true “elder son” nation to the rest of the world. This means that we need to be successful at home and generous abroad. The National Tithe provides an opportunity for all families to make a direct contribution to our national and international evangelical, educational and ministry projects.
Let’s make a new determination together to support this national-level offering. We now have a new online National Tithe form at https://nationaltithe.familyfed.org. If you are already making automatic monthly contributions but would like to increase the monthly amount, please also make use of this system to make the change. We’ve also asked all pastors to speak on this matter during the services on Sunday, December 1.
Once again, thank you for your generous and ongoing support.

As I view the photo of Rev Moon with Sammy’s mother 1965 several things strike me about its content.
1. Hak Ja Han is not in the photo.
2. Ms. Choi, Sammy’s mother, is standing next to Rev Moon. It’s hard to tell, is she pregnant?
3. Mrs. Pak is at one end of the group; her husband Bo Hi Pak is flanking the other end of the group. They look proud and protective of Moon and Ms. Choi who are standing next to each other like a couple.
4. Clearly the Pak family knows Ms. Choi is the mother of Sammy and that Sun Myung Moon is his father.
5. Why are the Pak’s so accommodating of this women and her illegitimate son, so much so that they secretly adopt him into their family? Why “didn’t” they make this holy union between SMM and Ms Choi known to all the UC members? Was it because they thought they were “special” and we were “to fallen” to understand or appreciate the “providential” adultery?
6. I look at Bo Hi Pak standing proud in the photo. I have listened to his son Jin Sung Pak, rant on in a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-8k_yNv1Wo) about how his father Bo Hi Pak would whip him whenever Moon’s eldest son Hyo Jin (Steve) would do anything wrong. I heard him tell us all how he believes the Moon kids can read our minds (his mind). And seriously, the thought comes into my head that a man like Bo Hi Pak who would beat his son for Hyo Jin’s (Steve’s) wrong doings and teach his children to believe the Moon family can read minds is a seriously superstitious man. I can easily believe that such a superstitious man would be predisposed to actually begging his messiah to have sex with his wife so that they too can be “special”. And then the photo of the Pak’s flanking Moon and his mistress Ms. Choi makes perfect sense. They believe the adultery is providential. Pak is like Moons lap dog…of course he would beg Moon to have sex with his wife, providentially of course, in order to make her womb holy. It’s how they think. It’s the kind of superstitious thinking that allowed them to adopt Sammy and keep him a secret all those years.
7. When I joined the UC, Bo Hi Pak was Moons main translator. I saw Rev. Moon hit and bitch slap Pak, on stage, countless times. Bo Hi Pak always lowered his head and bowed to Rev. Moon when slapped about his head. Bo Hi Pak actually thanked Moon whenever he hit him….in public, on the stage, during Sunday speeches! Of course, it all makes sense now. Moon was the alpha dog; Pak was a part of the pack, one of the protectors of the alpha dog. So he did what the pack does concerning the alpha dog or wolf…he takes his beatings and he lets the alpha dog or wolf mate with his bitch. (I use the word bitch in its true form, meaning….female dog)
My goodness, I’m thunderstruck! They are such intelligent people but they are really backwards and underdeveloped when it comes to common sense because they are ruled by superstition.
They are like animals, like a pack of wild dogs where no one is equal to the alpha male. And where the alpha female lets her alpha male have sex with the other bitches in the pack. That’s why Hak Ja Han let Moon do it. That’s why HJH let her husband have sex with other women, it’s because they are steeped in superstitious thinking, like a pack of wild dogs or wolves. Is it any wonder their kids are so dysfunctional?
These were very important points which “Xenophanis” expressed in this writing. All young people who joined the UC in their youth were idealistic and looking for the truth. They were disappointed in the established churches which only talked about the Kingdom of God but were not able to realize it on earth.
The first generation of the UC members is now old and they have been compelled to realize the fact that the UC is not better than the established churches. The original high ideals of the UC are not realized by the Moon family or the leaders or the members. The UC needs a deep going reformation if it wants to remain alive.
Were not the sins of the Japanese paid in full when America dropped Atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
What more could Moon want from the Japanese after knowing what happened to them when America dropped the Atomic bomb on them?
Moon and his cronies use this comfort women guilt trip on the Japanese members as a means of emotional/spiritual blackmail.
Where is the forgiveness of Christ in this endless extortion of the Japanese Unification church members? SMM was so fond of talking about forgiving ones enemies. But it was all talk. In truth he heaps flaming coals of guilt on the minds of the Japanese to keep the guilt money flowing into his personal empire that was then passed on to his sinful family.
Why is Moon going back to the Old Testament of judgment and payment, an eye for an eye? Where is the forgiveness of Christ in his punishment/extortion/indemnity of the Japanese? Does anyone still believe the Japanese owe anyone anything? How much is payment enough for what they did in the name of their Emperor Hirohito? Wouldn’t the Japanese soldiers have been shot as cowards had they refused to fight for Hirohito? I have read so many stories about the way Japanese were recruited to fight for Hirohito. They are no guiltier of war crimes then the rest of the human race is guilty of war crimes. All war is a crime against humanity.
The fact that the Moons are still using spiritual extortion to enslave the Japanese Unification church members is irrefutable evidence that they have nothing to do with the real God of Heaven and Earth.
When it was said in; John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” who was left out? I couldn’t find any place it the bible that said that For God so love the world “except for the Japanese” anywhere. So why do the Moons continue to treat the Japanese as though they are unforgivable? They do so because guilt equals cash for them. If you Moonies cannot see this then you do not know the real God of love but have slipped into Moons world view that all human sin is an opportunity to extort cash for his empire. He is and always has been a hypocritical fraud selling salvation whenever and however he could.
Show me the sin and I’ll show you a Moon with their hand out extorting cash and not their hearts pouring out understanding and forgiveness which is the true nature of Christ. It is anti Christ to extort cash for sins because it denies the fact that God so loved the world…that means you and everyone, including Japanese soldiers, many, if not most who were only doing what their idiot Emperor forced them to do.
Please, you members of the Unification church…..demand that the Moons forgive the Japanese and make them stop using extortion through guilt to enslave your brothers and sister in any country none more so then the Japanese.
A Japanese member set herself and two others on fire on the eve of the first anniversary of SMM deaths at the CheongShim Village, a retirement community “””operated”””” by the Unification Church northeast of Seoul.
Wait a minute? Did you all know the the Korean Unificationist have a retirement community? Paid for by whom, the Japanese? How is it staffed? Is it staffed by the slave labor of the Japanese members? Why were those Japanese members there in that Korean UC retirement community to begin with? Were the Japanese women slave laborers for that UC Korean retirement home? Is that why she “had a mental illness” as stated in the CNN article on the story “However, Steve Sakuwa from the Unification Church rejected the official account, saying, “self-immolation is incorrect.” Sakuwa says the women has a mental illness and was attempting to throw the liquid at a male pastor but accidentally doused herself as well
Are there any retirement communities set up for the Japanese? Are the Koreans paying for it? Do they work there as free laborers for the Japanese? That will never happen because Sun Myung Moon hated Japanese people and therefore has used and taught his kids to use the Japanese as free laborers and cash cows.
It has been the history of the Unification church and the Moon family to use the slave labor of all the members but none more so than the Japanese. The Japanese have been used as slave laborers for many many decades. Is it any wonder they may be depressed or have “mental issues”? Slavery breeds depression and causes one to have levels of deep metal distress that could be conveniently interpreted by the UC leaders and the Moon family as “the members having mental illness.
Once the UC leaders or the Moon’s label a member as having a “mental illness” they are in effect, DOING DAMAGE CONTROL which shifts all blame from themselves onto their victims of abuse.
Unification Church Members Ruled Guilty in Fortune Telling Intimidation Case
A Tokyo Court ruled on November 10th that Shinsei Fortune Telling Company President, Tanaka Haruki (52), was guilty in a case where individuals were intimidated to buy expensive family seals to save their ancestors after receiving fortune telling counseling sessions. Tanaka Haruki is a member of the Unification Church. The court ruled that he be sentenced to 2 years of prison, 4 years of parole, and to pay a fine of 300 million yen.
An accomplice and business manager of the Shinsei Fortune Telling Company, Furuzawa Junichiro (40), was also ruled guilty by the court and to be sentenced to a year and half of prison, 4 years of parole, and to pay a fine of 200 million yen. The Shinsei Fortune Telling Company was also ruled by the court to pay 800 million yen in penalties.
Judge Akiba Yasuhiro said in his ruling, “The company and defendants in question used illegal intimidation tactics to sell family seals as a means of increasing Unification Church membership. The company and its defendants took part in illegal actions. ”
According to the ruling, the defendants Tanaka Haruki and Furuzawa Junichiro intimidated five different women to buy family seals to protect their well-being over a period from October 2007 to February 2009 at a sales office in Shibuya, Tokyo. The women were reportedly informed, “Your ancestral history has problems, and your future is worrisome,” after receiving a fortune telling session with the defendants.
統一教会信者に有罪判決 不安あおり印鑑購入迫る 【共同通信】
先祖の因縁話で不安をあおり、印鑑購入を迫ったとして、特定商取引法違反（威迫・困惑行為）の罪に問われた統一 教会信者で印鑑販売会社「新世」（東京）の社長田中尚樹被告（５２）に、東京地裁は１０日、懲役２年、執行猶予４年、罰金３００万円（求刑懲役２年、罰金 ５００万円）の判決を言い渡した。
I was conditioned to love, serve, and obey any person in the Abel position during my full time church working life. Because I made the “position” and the “person in the position” the same I was profoundly affected by their impression of me. I was always trying to subconsciously gain acceptance from that person in that position. So if that person was unhappy with me for some reason then I internalized it and felt it was my own fault. This condition persists even after leaving the group upon reflection of my time in the group. It seems like I am still trying to please my central figure, or the person in the position in my past.
I still feel like it’s my fault and the person in the leadership position is better than me. I believe that the position can be respected and idealized, but it is important to separate the “unqualified leader” from the “position”. It’s the same for Moon. On the one hand there is the idealized position, and on the other is the reality of an unqualified mentally unhealthy person in that position. Because I was taught to love, serve, and obey, the person in the leadership position I made the “position” and the “person in the position” the same.
Not only Unification church members, but also Christians, may have the same thought process and may be reluctant to face it. So it is more comfortable to just continue feeling like you are the one at fault rather than accepting that it is the person in the leadership position because it is just too uncomfortable to challenge that, and also to deal with the repercussions of what that person would do, or what the others in your group would do. It also goes against your own belief or conditioning, and it is not easy to change ingrained habits of the mind.
This is why the church is so evil, it manipulates, deceives, and imprisons us with our own minds.
In the church for example, if you were having problems in a mission for example MFT (Mobile Fundraising Teams), then you were sent for re-education at a Divine Principle workshop, and then moved into another position - perhaps another team, or church center under a different leader. I think this happened to me several times where there were objections raised about me being there by others, and then a decision to change my position, or mission to somewhere else. When I was asked to go somewhere else it was expected that I go in accordance with the will of my Abel Figure, and I went like a good church member (or person in the position of Cain or follower) should, and the real reason for moving me around was kept hidden from me. Instead I was made to feel bad about myself, like I wasn’t up to the standard, or had failed in some way.
The joke is that no one not even Moon could be in compliance with this unreachably high standard, even though he made the pretense that he was the substantiation of it, along with his family. So leaders would always feel they hadn’t reached that standard and then transfer that onto their own members, and in turn make them feel bad as well.
This was psychological abusive behavior, and it was practiced from the top all the way down the line of authority to the regular member of the church. Instead of just accepting me for what I was, the focus was on results. Because the focus was result-oriented, individuals got moved around to suit those in position, who came to the conclusion that you were getting in the way of their ability to get those results, or you were a threat to them keeping their own position, or continuing to look good amongst their own leadership. More fundamentally though I think it was an expression not being qualified as a leader - but still maintaining that leadership position.
”Father proceeded to explain in great detail that he was sleeping and became aware that a woman, presumably Mother was giving him a massage. Believing this was Mother, Father proceeded to massage the woman’s breasts.”
First, are we to believe that a woman came into a room where Rev. Moon was asleep and she started to give him a massage without waking him and asking his permission first? Really? That’s how they do things at the Moon mansions?
Second, if his hands were free to simply reach up and massage her breasts while he was in such a sleeping stupor that he didn’t know it wasn’t his wife, then he had to have been on his back, correct? Then what part of the front of him was this woman massaging without his consent? You know that never happened, right? A masseur would never simply walk into a room where SMM was sleeping and start massaging him “anywhere on his front” without waking him to let him know it as the time for his daily routine massage.
If this is the story SMM was telling everyone, a man with a loose sexual history which included cheating on his wife Hak Ja Han (your true mother), then you might want to question the whole thing.
Isn’t it more likely that a man like Rev Moon, who had a history of seducing women into having providential sex with him, was checking out how far this measurer would let him go and when she freaked out on him for touching her breasts he made up the story of being asleep and not knowing what he was doing to protect his messianic image?
Sun Myung Moon has said Communism is the incarnation of Satan on earth. It is the enemy of God and therefore Communism must be destroyed. In his Anti-Communistic battle Moon has cooperated with former fascists and Nazis all over the world.
In Japan Moon united with Yakuza, the organized crime. Its leaders were Yoshio Kodama, Ryoichi Sasakawa and a former Japanese Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi. They were all former fascists and convicted as class ‘A’ war criminals after WWII.
In Latin America the World Anti-Communistic League (WACL) and CAUSA of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon became involved in Death Squad operations. These political organizations of Rev. Moon had strong ties to the KCIA. Moon was a believer in the existence of the “world-wide Communist (Illuminist) conspiracy” in a similar way as Korean President Syngman Rhee and Senators Joseph McCarthy and William Jenner. Moon believed that the Communist conspiracy could only be stopped by uniting the Western World under his Unification ideology.
In Latin America many of the Death Squad networks became synonymous with Rev. Moon and the Unification Church. For example in Argentina, Buenos Aires, the various Death Squad cadres constituted the main Argentine branch of WACL. These kinds of connections between the Death Squads and the Unification Church were repeated throughout Central and South America. Moon and the Death Squads were actually responsible - along with Nazi fugitive Klaus Barbie - in helping to establish a Nazi-style state in Bolivia in 1980.

The CIA, the State Department, and U.S. military intelligence units collaborated with a secret Honduran military unit known as Battalion 316 in the 1980s, even though U.S. officials knew the batallion was kidnapping, torturing and executing its own people. The CIA and the Unification Church members cooperated in Sandinista War. In the Central American hinterlands it was sometimes difficult to distinguish CIA operatives from the Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s disciples. The Messiah had a solid presence in the region. CAUSA has helped “freedom fighters” with basic supplies, cash and emergency relief. Gun-toting guerillas in Honduras were seen clad in red CAUSA T-shirts.
