Kanberra’s Konservative Kontender for Chief Minister Kaught on Kamera at Krazy Korean Kult Konference

By GSAAlliance - 3 October 2008 82

Zed’s Cult Connection: 

Zed Seselja is on the record having admitted, while being an elected MLA, to attending a week-long conference in Korea in 2005 which was organised by a political wing of the Unification Church known as the ‘IIWFP Universal Peace Federation’.  

The Church gave Zed a all-expenses paid, first-class ticket to the cult conference as well as a personal gift from the ‘Reverend’ Moon himself of a golden tea set of unknown value.  If it weren’t for the tea set, which Zed was forced to declare, Zed’s cult connection would still be a secret.  It is rumoured that Zed keeps the tea set in pride of place on his desk at parliament, and in times of great stress lovingly strokes and fondles it.

About the Moonies:

The ‘Reverend’ Moon is infamous for running a world-wide cult known as the Unification Church .  Famous primarily for their bizarre mass-wedding ceremonies, the church has a much darker side.

Some of the billionaire ‘Reverend’ Moon’s public statements include:

          Repeatedly referring to himself variously as ‘the Messiah’, ‘the second coming of Jesus’, ‘the King of America’ and ‘the Emperor of the World’

          Referring to homosexuals as ‘dirty dung eating dogs’

          Making offensive statements about the Holocaust

          Comparing his time spent in prison for tax fraud to the persecution of Jesus.

The Unification Church has also been named by a U.S. Congressional report as having been involved in the illegal manufacture and distribution massive amounts of weaponry including thousands of M-16 assault rifles and anti-aircraft weapons.

About the Cult Conference:

An official website of the Church reveals some of the matters discussed at the conference attended by Zed.  The website describes how ‘engrossed participants’ had ‘tears in their eyes throughout different lectures’, which included ‘presentations on HIV/AIDS Prevention, emphasizing Father Moon’s “one man, one woman” system as the ultimate solution to the spread of the disease and other sexually transmitted diseases. For most participants it was the first time to hear of a character development approach to combating the scourge of HIV.’

This conference was presided over by a mysterious church official known as ‘Reverend Kwak’, known to be ‘Reverend’ Moon’s closest advisor and confidant.

‘Reverend Kwak’ was involved in the notorious incident at the U.S. Senate in 2004 when, to the outrage of a number of U.S. Senators present, the Reverend Moon emerged dressed in a royal gown and, after having an ‘ornate crown’ placed on his head, proceeded to deliver a lengthy speech in which he claimed he was “sent to Earth . . . to save the world’s six billion people. . . . Emperors, kings and presidents . . . have declared to all Heaven and Earth that Reverend Sun Myung Moon is none other than humanity’s Saviour, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent.”  Reverend Kwak later explained that ‘(the) crowning means America is saying to Father, ‘Please become my king’.

The Church website also gives feedback from participants at the conference:

‘I believe Father Moon is a servant of God. His vision comes from God.’
‘I really want to contribute to whatever IIFWP is asking us to do.’
‘The work of the IIFWP connects our work and heart and brings us closer to God.’
‘This parliamentarian’s seminar has changed my attitude in my leadership.’

 Zed has previously explained his attendance at the conference as merely accepting a freebie, and that he didn’t know what they were about.  Given that ultra-right NSW Liberal MP and Alistair Coe mentor David Clarke is a known long-time associate of the Moonies, does this explanation stack up?

 Note: The website from which these quotes and pictures come from has recently been shut down, while all others remain.  Coincidence?

 Zed pre and post-brainwashing:

UPDATED: A helpful source has found us the source of the pictures and the conference quotes.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Jimbruce has posted a lengthy and learned comment on the subject of the moonies and their attempts to influence politics in Australia which I commend to any of you wondering what the fuss is about.

What’s Your opinion?

what a load of BS he didn’t know what it was about – as if you would travel to korea for a week long conference without knowing what it was about. and if perchance (one chance in a million) he didn’t know what it was about but just went to ‘accept a freebie’ on taxpayer time, well quite frankly that is also disgusting.

And having heard what they had to say he stayed to pose in photos and kept their gift…

EXACTIMO JB!

Pity Pottsy was so quick off the blocks this month…

@caf gotta love that. I haven’t seen one for asian brides yet…

One of the best bits about this thread is the contextual ads it’s attracting.

Oh yeah…I just got interested!

The Unification Church holds a hell of a lot of clout – Reverend Moon even got crowned “King of Peace” by a bunch of pollies in the states and is rumoured to have close connections to George HW Bush. Check it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f08clPMODw8

Moon believes that he is on earth to complete the work left unfinished by Adam and Jesus. As a big player in the anti-cult hysteria of the 70s (“these weirdos have stolen my darling children”) the Moonies got a bad wrap but I don’t think they have anywhere near the membership they did back then. These days it’s more business clout – owning the Washington Times newspaper and North America’s sushi distribution networks.

Yes, it is a bit weird (though not necessarily dangerous) and you really have to wonder what Zed is doing with the Moonies.

I, for one, am most keen to know what the nature of Zed’s relationship is with the Unification Church. Tell us, oh potential leader!

Skid,

I agree. It’s really getting quite bizarre 😉

I wonder if Stanhope has ever attended a communist meeting? Or Rattenbury a socialist alliance meeting? or Pratt a red neck ute driving convention in Alabama?

he declared the tea set. he attended the conference. he probably got more at the conference than he bargained for. Just because the conference was run by the moonies, does not mean that it didn’t have some actual focus on international peace…

but if he had been brainwashed into their belief system, the policies would be far more different.

There are a great many things here which need further links checked.

Who is the GSAAlliance, and are they a political organisation requiring disclosure?

The all-expenses paid trip should be checked further, someone will have documentation somewhere.
Which Congressional Report?
Can you clarify where you pull the ‘most participants’ statement from in relation to the conference and HIV\AIDS character development.

And there a fair emount of deliberately emotive language being used.

BEST. THREAD. EVER

And no-one thinks this is simply a seriously low blow attack by a Labor sympathiser?

Fcku me, it is get personal.

Not Stanhope = Vote in my opinion.
