NEW YORK, September 14, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The successful North Korean missile tests last weekend reminded us that the issue of reunification between the North and the South Korea is an urgent matter which requires vigilant and constant efforts. We are encouraged to see Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon’s foresight by continuing to publicly address this issue through its work with current and former world leaders, across the political spectrum. This work faithfully reflects the nickname given to her “Mother of Peace”.
The Federation of Families for World Peace and Unification is a diverse organization with members of different races and political affiliations. While many people call us the “Unification Church,” our mission is to bring the world together as one family under God. In times like these, we must unite, right and left, under the banner of peace and unity. We are stronger together and must not let our differences divide us.
Not a cult
We categorically state that we are not a “sect”. The FFWPU is a registered religious non-profit organization. Dr J. Gordon melton, a prominent American scholar of new religions, classifies the “Unification Church” as a religious movement. You can find Dr. Melton’s statement on how “worship” is used as a derogatory term for new religions. here. The use of the term “Moonie” is a derogatory statement, as publicly acknowledged and defined by the Oxford English Dictionary.
We stress again that the FFWPU is in no way affiliated with Sean Hyung Jin Moon and the Sanctuary of World Peace and Unification in Newfoundland, Pennsylvania, (alias “Church of the sanctuary”). Sean Moon and the beliefs of his church do not represent the legacy of Rev. Sun Myung Moon and dr. Hak Ja Han Moon.
“What is the Unification Church? Where is it going, embracing both the right and the left? Its purpose is to guide people to the world of happiness that transcends the struggles of the world . ” – Rev. Sun Myung Moon
