No Moon Tonight

Let the dancing begin. "Reverend" Sun Myung Moon is dead. The Moonie leader is famous for arranging mass marriages among his adherents to people who often were total strangers to each other. Also for love bombing newbies and having his zombielike followers sell peanut brittle and jewelry door-to-door. The world is better off without people like him.

The Unification Church has a fishing boat base and HQ here in Gloucester, Mass. I was a big story back in the 80s. I know two local couples from the mass wedding that have drifted away and live quite normally in the community. If there is an after life, Moon will be surprised to told he isn't a god.

As I heard it, they bought a fish processing plant and stocked it with Moonie workers. Minimum wage, of course. Then the workers gave their pay back to the cult. Ergo, slave labor. They also opened up a chain of convenience stores. Perhaps Go 'n' Joy. I think that went bust. At least I haven't seen any in this area.
