Unification Church member Gary Fleisher wrote, "Calling us 'Moonies' is just a technique of making it easy to hate us, because Moonies aren't human. It is easy to hate and persecute robots. The word Moonie has the same purpose as ******, ****, spik, mick, or Polak. It is to make a group of enemies, that it is acceptable to hate and misuse."[7]

A dysphemism treadmill effect has occurred, and the term is now sometimes used again, especially by the youth of the church, to refer to themselves.


Unhappy w/ the N word becoming popular AGAIN. So much "wasted effort"

ON topic, I don't rightly care who builds my boat as long as they're HONEST, open to dialogue(consumer care)and I can get one @ a fair price!

Would you trust someone who falls for that line of crap? Giving 'em money for a boat is like giving 'em money at the airport.

The moonies sell flowers, all kinds of stuff..true, the hare chrishnas were the worst (they just begged), but the moonies were pretty aggressive too.

So, I just read about 15 min. of his speech. Sounds like he stands for much of what is RIGHT in this world. He also sees the flaws in communism and democracy and stands against them.

There could be a lot worse religions to stand for other than the Unification church.

Read the links to his first sermon--see if you guys buy it?

I do, but I haven't read the whole sermon...............yet.

I own a True World Marine, the boat is average but customer service is awful, pretty much once they are paid they give you the #1 sign by using the longest finger. I also won the first and only boat owners tourney, they owed me $12,500 in winnings and I wound up with a settlement of about half. They tried to cancel a 3 month long event just one week before the end of the event and sent out a letter to say they would refund the entry fee.

Adhering to a plan Moon spelled out more than three decades ago in a series of sermons, members of his movement managed to integrate virtually every facet of the highly competitive seafood industry. The Moon followers' seafood operation is driven by a commercial powerhouse, known as True World Group. It builds fleets of boats, runs dozens of distribution centers and, each day, supplies most of the nation's estimated 9,000 sushi restaurants.

Although few seafood lovers may consider they're indirectly supporting Moon's religious movement, they do just that when they eat a buttery slice of tuna or munch on a morsel of eel in many restaurants. True World is so ubiquitous that 14 of 17 prominent Chicago sushi restaurants surveyed by the Tribune said they were supplied by the company.

Over the last three decades, as Moon has faced down accusations of brainwashing followers and personally profiting from the church, he and sushi have made similar if unlikely journeys from the fringes of American society to the mainstream.

These parallel paths are not coincidence. They reflect Moon's dream of revitalizing and dominating the American fishing industry while helping to fund his church's activities.

"I have the entire system worked out, starting with boat building," Moon said in "The Way of Tuna," a speech given in 1980. "After we build the boats, we catch the fish and process them for the market, and then have a distribution network. This is not just on the drawing board; I have already done it."

In the same speech, he called himself "king of the ocean." It proved not to be an idle boast. The businesses now employ hundreds, including non-church members, from the frigid waters of the Alaskan coast to the iconic American fishing town of Gloucester, Mass.

What about the older Ocean Marine boats, the Hope boats: One Hope, Two Hope, Three Hope, etc. I heard that there were alot of them used around NE in the '70's and '80's. I seen 1 or 2 of these boats, on the sides I could barely make out the word Hope faded into the glass though the letters were removed. They were awaiting to be redone, rebuilt.

So he is a good business man as well, nothin wrong with that, right?

I personally think raping the ocean of everything that moves is wrong---I guess thats OK with moonies. Now, I don't know if he has all his ducks in a row?????????????

Thanks for that info. Paul

Also, if indeed they shorted Capt. Verdino, these unification members or "kingies" are hipocrites--it's not fair and flat out wrong to do that.
Also, it's right and holy to give good customer support, evidently lacking in their scheme of things.

So, what say you true world fish killin moonies? Paul

Pretty cool video on True Worlds site that shows some of the old One Hope boats in action.
