To which I say, Hallejuah! The guy who fleeced thousands and thousands of young people out of every last cent, out of promising futures, in many cases stealing their very dignity using the religious protection racket, has finally passed away. Alas, the cause of death was not slow roasting in flames or lingering necrotizing genitalia, as would be appropriate for a social predator of this caliber:
CNN— The Rev. Sun Myung Moon — founder of the church whose followers are colloquially known as the Moonies — died early Monday in South Korea, an organization affiliated with his church said. The Universal Peace Federation said on its website that Moon died early Monday morning of complications related to pneumonia. He was 92.
The Washington Times, one of several publications that Moon founded, similarly reported Moon’s death. “Words cannot convey my heart at this time,” said Thomas P. McDevitt, the Times’ president said in a story on the newspaper’s website. “Rev. Sun Myung Moon has long loved America, and he believed in the need for a powerful free press to convey accurate information and moral values to people in a free world.”
McDevitt is right about one thing, words cannot describe it. On that we agree, because I tried for a good half hour to come up with the right words to describe the harm this one son of a bitch has wrought and came up empty. The fact that this crafty shameless asshole lived to age 92 and died in the pit of elite luxury surrounded by loving, adoring family and friends is even more evidence that either there is no God, or God is a raving amoral lunatic. I dearly hope Moon’s gravesite is available to visitors as I would like to think there’s a drunken pilgrimage in my future, someday, where I get to dance on this mother-fuckers slowly rotting carcass.
