I HAVE DISCOVERED THE ANTICHRIST. Back on March 23rd, a ceremony was held in the I kid you not Dirkson Senate Building to honor Sun Myung Moon. Reverend Moon is the founder of the Unification Church, affectionately called "Moonies". This ceremony was attended by 81 of your elected congressmen. It was also attended by 26 ambassadors from various countries and 450 other honored guests.
Moon was given crowns and a robe. (Have a familiar ring?) He was given an award for peace.
Moon spoke to the crowd. Here are some tidbits. (Warning: you might need duct tape!)
Moon said "I am God's ambassador, sent to earth with his full authority. I am sent to accomplish his command to save the world's six billion people, restoring them to heaven with the original goodness in which they were created."
Moon also said "Open your hearts and receive the secrets that heaven is disclosing in this age through me." I know he has secrets, but I might disagree about the source. He might have gotten turned around.
This scary event happened in a government building in the Capitol. I haven't heard a word from the ACLU.
Moon, by the way, wants to revamp the UN into a faith based organization to bring peace to the world. Guess which faith.
If all this has not scared you enough, look at the other participants in the ceremony.
Presiding was Walter E. Fauntleroy, who is a Baptist minister of some sort. Moon was introduced by a Rabbi blowing a shofar, the Jewish ceremonial horn. A former Catholic Archbishop named Stallings said that Moon stood in the spirit of Jesus the Christ.
The Rabbi went on to announce Moon as the Jewish messiah. Does this all sound like a Tim LeHaye book to you? It does to me, and I am not even a dispensationalist.
One reassuring note: Moon revealed that Hitler and Stalin had reformed in "the spirit world" and had been reborn.
The announcer summarized by saying that Moon is the "King of Peace" and had begun an ideal kingdom, uniting heaven and earth. He called for global governance centered on God with guess who as the leader. You guessed it.
