Moon brings message of unification to city

2001-04-06

“I have been to the spirit world. I have met God.”

So proclaimed the Rev. Sun Myong Moon to hundreds of Oklahomans Thursday night as he spoke of family values and religious and racial unity. The stop in Oklahoma City was part of a 50-city tour.

American Indians danced in full regalia, and Guthrie Mayor Evelyn Nephew spoke to the lively crowd at the Myriad Convention Center.

Moon and his fellow ministers preached the message of the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, which Moon created from his Unification Church.

The 81-year-old Korean evangelist spoke through a translator as he delivered the purpose of the “We Will Stand!” tour — rebuild the family, restore the community and renew the nation and world.

The speakers proclaimed that people of faith should not discriminate against those of other religions nor against those of other races.

“We need to tear down denominational and racial walls,” said federation President the Rev. Michael Jenkins.

He said churches should work together to revive the community.

Moon spoke of his belief that man and woman are not whole until together. He said a couple’s purpose is to procreate.

As a boy, Moon escaped communism in what is now North Korea and has become a promoter of world peace.

Oklahoma was the 40th stop on the tour, which will visit Nebraska today and New Hampshire on Saturday.

The crusade’slast day is April 16.
