Dispatches from the Creation Wars

The Moonies held a press conference yesterday to clear up what they claim are misconceptions and falsehoods fostered by us evil bloggers about the March 23rd Moon coronation ceremony at the Dirkson senate office building. The press conference featured Michael Jenkins, George Stallings and other frauds and con men from the Unification Church. They ended up making themselves sound even worse. We’ve already shown the two contradictory explanations they’ve given, and their own admission of how they’ve given two contradictory views of it:

“The ‘outside’ view of the Capitol Hill event was that Father received a crown, an award for his years of dedication and leadership in reconciliation and peace-making. The ‘inside’ view of the event was that America surrendered to True Parents in the king’s position.”

But not satisfied with that set of lies, they added another to it during yesterday’s press conference. Rob Boston of Americans United was there for the press conference and reports:

Archbishop George Augustus Stallings, founder of a breakaway Catholic church and a frequent Moon ally, spoke at the press conference and took questions. But Stallings dodged the most important question and refused to say which member of the Senate arranged for Moon’s group to use the room in the Dirksen Senate Office Building. (Under Senate rules, such requests for Senate space must be submitted by a member of that body.)

Asked directly to name the senator who had put in the room request, Stallings said, “We do not know.” Asked how they could not know, Stallings said, “We don’t. Read my lips.”

But a moment later, Schanker stepped up to the microphone to clarify matters. The Moon group does know who requested the room but will not say, Schanker said. It is up to the Senate Rules Committee, he said, to make that information public.

You have to love the fact that Stallings got all haughty and arrogant with his “read my lips” comment, only to find out he was lying mere seconds later by the admission of his fellow Moon apologist, Mr. Schanker. Hilarious. And the most astonishing thing about it is that these lying clowns will be believed by their followers. There is no claim, no matter how obviously dishonest, that can’t be rationalized by the true believers.

    Ed, Ed, Ed…. Oh ye of little faith.
    Don’t you remember the inspiring words of that great religious and moral leader, Jim Baker, spoken to the young woman not his spouse in a hotel room while convincing her to have sex with him: “When you help the shepherd, you help the sheep.”
