Moon's Mass Marriages: An Update

By

multi-ethnic
The Unification Church will have some big changes in the coming years.

These days, unmarried Unificationists have a few options: a marriage arranged by the Rev. Moon, a marriage arranged by their parents, a marriage self-arranged within the community or the marriage of some open-minded outsider.

Interestingly, part of the rationale behind Rev. Moon's match-ups was to eliminate racial strife by creating generations of children of mixed ethnicity until divisions of skin color were largely eliminated (like in the unwatchable Matrix sequels). Maybe he's onto something. Maybe he's a mountebank. And maybe a little bit of both is going down. Either way, it will be interesting to see how the church copes when he passes*. I wonder if anyone has statistics on the success of these Moon-arranged marriages.

 

*Note: Though it'll probably coincide with the Winter Solstice of 2012 and we'll all be bathed in hellfire.

FYI: While both groups have engaged in some airport lobby proselytizing, it's the Hare Krishnas, rather than Moon's people, who shave their heads and wear fun robes.
