Rev. Sun Myung Moon (Feb. 25, 1920 - Sep. 2, 2012, Korea) was the founder of the Unification Church. Rev. Moon's main goal, throughout his life, had been to comfort the "grieving heart" (Gen. 6:6) of our heavenly Father. He said that at the age of 15, Jesus visited him and asked him to continue the work He had started 2000 years earlier, to establish the "kingdom of God on earth"
Al Capp said, "... out of him shines the most enormous good nature, the most enormous good will, the most enormous affection." YouTube clip, 4:31
Rev. Moon was known in the media and political world as the founder of the Washington Times.
His daughter In Jin Moon is CEO of Manhattan Center Studios and head of the Unification Church of America.
The reason Rev. Moon was against homosexuality was not so much that "God has forbidden it" but that it's a lifestyle that makes you miserable. The Bible says "Outside the city are the fornicators" not because some angel stands by the gate like a bouncer, but because fornication pulls us away from God.
Contrary to rumors spread by opponents, Rev. Moon had no plans to establish a theocracy; that would violate human free will.
Dr. Sang Hun Lee wrote, "Rev. Moon does not intend at all to propagate this thought in an absolutist or dogmatic way. He intends it to be popularized by obtaining the approval of many people after letting it undergo the research and critique of many thinkers and scholars, as many of the past scholarly works did."
