I couldn't find a specific Moonies thread besides this one... I googled "Moonies" and "Rick Ross Forum" and this came up. Small world, the above post was by me 9 years ago^^ Anyway, I just wanted to share this Moonies vid I snagged a few years back: Marines, repeat after me "Rev. Moon is the Messiah!"

Here's a great video of a presentation Prof. Ji Il Tark, who lectures on cultic groups. This may have been posted already, I just skimmed the above posts, but here's an article from 2008 about the group's recruiting in Pennsylvania: This article, about the group in Malawi, is no longer online, but I took a screenshot:

Well I've been inactive on this board of late, but I think a return and update on this cult is warranted as although it is relatively obscure in the west, it does have branches near quite a few university campuses in the US and recruiters are always on the lookout for more members. So 8 years ago the cult leader was a fugitive, he's since been arrested in China (2007) and then extrad

This group is very active on Korean university campuses, under the guise of IYF (International Youth Fellowship) Lots of focus on English education (something every Korean student studies) and travel abroad on their missionary / volunteer programs. I attended one of their speech contest a few years ago, almost every speech was about how good their "church" was. A promo video fol

Korea's JMS cult has a branch in New York. Info on the jms cult here, www.jmscult.com. It's considered Korea's worst cult. It's leader, Jeong Myeong-seok, fled Korea in 1999 after rape allegations aried on national TV. Over the next 8 years, there were 100s of other allegations from Korea, Japan, China, and Taiwan. A fugitive for some 8 years Jeong was captured in China in

Wow, the new president of India, Pratibha Patil, is a member of the BK doomsday cult and has admitted to speaking to its dead founder. QuoteThe milder criticism of her comes from a curious admission that a dead guru had given her a "premonition" that she was destined to become India's first citizen. A doomsday cult with nukes, isn't that nice :wink:

Quotemissmek Also I question how Raelianism is an atheist religion. They may not believe in God, but they do believe in the Elohim as their creators, plan on their return for immortality and rely on their faith in Rael as messanger. I do wish someone could clue me in on where I am wrong in questioning that aspect. It's God by another name. He's just using a different name for his u

I encountered them a few months ago, and wrote an article my adventures. A doomsday cult with many similarities to Aum Not a cult? I have to laugh at that, BK lies and manipulates with the best of them. The BK member who gave a lecture on my campus was a total fraud who's resume distrubuted to university staff was a total fiction. His doomsday predictions nothing but superstitious nons

I recorded a Filipino member of a Korean cult describing his introduction to the group. That is a current member talking. Youtube link here. Certainly with that cult - www.jmscult.com - recruitment can have nothing to do with any other factors than how well the recruiters tell their lies, flatter and manipulate. Certainly, in the beginning, the cult seems to offer things that any person

QuotechariotHow can someone say something so stupid that a human is Jesus? It's hard to believe. Would these missionaries really be teaching something so stupid like that? That's what I want to know. Well lots groups that teach that their leader is the Messiah, and quite a few Korean based groups also, so yes, it is certainly possible they teach this. If this group is a cult, then th

I don't think they are linked to the Moonies, but that's just a hunch. Their could be high level links, but my gut instinct is it's a different group completely. There's pretty much no critical info on them in English, but they have a bad rep here in Korea. The chaplin at my university had a few encounters with them recruiting on campus. A young guy in Germany shared h

Cool coincidence, The cult I stalk has a presence in both Poland and the Phillipines. One Saturday night in July I happened to spend a night at that cult's HQ in rural Korea and filmed a Filipino member describing his experiences in the cult. Oops I made some mistakes with the titles at the beginning of the film, and I changed the song he sang, cause it was really terrible, and I adde

There's apparently about 70 Korean Messiahs doing the rounds at the moment. Could be the Moonies, an offshoot of them, or another group entirely. I operate a website that focuses mainly on Korean cults and one in particular, if you don't mind could you perhaps get the name of this Korean Messiah? Have you seen his photo? If it's the group I encountered, some of the stuff

Regarding Moonie Off-shoot cult known as GACP (Global Association Of Culture & Peace), known in Korea as the JMS cult: Cult leader Jeong Myeong Seok has been on the news here in Korea these past few days. New rape allegations have come from his followers in China; which follows the pattern of rape allegations wherever he spends time: Korea, Japan, America, Taiwan, and now China. I

Well I wasn't exactly the first, there was already tons of complaints and criminal charges pressed against the cult I encountered in Korea, but in English there was very little info and what was around was outdated.

Still a whole ton of pictures to post, but at the moment I think it gives a pretty good insight into this group.
