THE DEEP POCKETS OF REV. MOON
The political disposition and substantial financial reservesof Unification Church leader, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, havebought him a number of associations with noteworthy people.Former presidents George Bush and Gerald Ford, comedian BillCosby and singer Whitney Houston have appeared at Moon-sponsoredevents. Even some within the Christian camp, such asBeverly LaHaye, Ralph Reed, Pat Boone, Robert Schuller, and JerryFalwell have been guest speakers at gatherings hosted by Moon orone of his front groups.
Recently, it was revealed that the Moon-Falwell relationshiphad deepened when the Korean church leaders charity wasaccepted in a sizable way by Falwell. According to Cornerstonemagazine, In 1994, Jerry Falwell quietly accepted a $3.5million donation from a Unification Church front group, theWomens Federation for World Peace, to help bail outFalwells then-insolvent Liberty University. Themagazine also reported that Robert Parry, a journalist for I.F.Magazine and the Los Angeles Times, revealed that Moonhad funneled the donation through the Christian HeritageFoundation (CHF), a nonprofit group that had bought theschools debt, which at the time amounted to $73 million.The reporter had used an IRS tax form to track thedonations source.
Rumors about the Unification Church-Liberty Universityrelationship had circulated for months. Falwells grouplabeled the reports as smoke and mirrors and claimedthat a wire service report in November 1997 contained anunfounded statement that reported Liberty University had alsoaccepted funds from the Unificationists.
Falwells newspaper, National Liberty Journal,said it wishes to set the record straight by assuringreaders that Liberty University has never solicited orreceived funds, directly or indirectly, from the UnificationChurch. Falwell himself, added: If theUnificationists, the American Atheist Society, or Bill Clintonhimself ever send an unrestricted gift to any of my ministries,be assured I will operate on evangelist Billy Sundaysphilosophy of: The Devils had it long enough... and quickly cash the check!
