Rev. Moon advocates genocide against gays

The Genocidal Moon

“There will be a purge on God’s orders, and evil will be eliminated like shadows,” the Unification Church leader Rev. Sun Myong Moon, the owner and primary funder of money-losing right-wing Washington Times, said last week. (The comments were posted online by Rev. Moon’s webmaster and picked up by blogger John Gorenfeld.) “Gays will be eliminated, the 3 Israels will unite. If not then they will be burned. We do not know what kind of world God will bring but this is what happens. It will be greater than the communist purge but at God’s orders.”

How should the media be responding to this call for genocide? Have any major media outlets been covering this story? Why not?

A Google news search shows this story only being covered by blogs (so far).

Moon is a politically well-connected nut case.

When President Bush added North Korea to his list of “Axis of Evil” nations, the influence of the self-declared reincarnation of Jesus Christ, the “Reverend” Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church, loomed largely over the White House decision-making process.

George W. Bush has a strong personal and financial connection with the cult-like Moonie church, say sources. Critics say the Moonie church opposes Christianity and the American way.

In fact, the Bush family may have received as much as $10 million from the Moonies in recent years. Rev. Sun Myung Moon considers himself a personal friend of our new president, according to newspaper reports.
