WHY WE USE SYMBOLS/ICONS IN OUR LISTS.

Please note:

ICSA does NOT maintain a list of "bad" groups or "cults."  We nonjudgmentally list groups on which we have information.

Groups listed, described, or referred to on ICSA's Web sites may be mainstream or nonmainstream, controversial or noncontroversial, religious or nonreligious, cult or not cult, harmful or benign.

We encourage inquirers to consider a variety of opinions, negative and positive, so that inquirers can make independent and informed judgments pertinent to their particular concerns.

Views expressed on our Web sites are those of the document's author(s) and are not necessarily shared, endorsed, or recommended by ICSA or any of its directors, staff, or advisors.

Sun Myung Moon Quotes

 

On Marriage
You will be happy to die on the earliest possible date. You will be pleased, won't you? (Yes!) But before you die, you must be blessed in marriage! If you die without getting blessed in marriage, it will be awful. So, wait until that time to die. Your physical parents too would like to have you get married before you die, at least.
 
Democracy
My dream is to organize a Christian political party including the Protestant denominations, Catholic and all the religious sects. Then, the communist power will be helpless before ours....But when it comes to our age, we must have an automatic theocracy to rue the world. So, we cannot separate the political field from the religious. Democracy was born because people ruled the world, like the Pope does. ...The separation between religion and politics is what Satan likes most.
 
From MS-366, 9/17/73, Third Directors' Conference, Master Speaks.
 
Lies
If you tell a lie to make a person better, then that is not a sin.

Page 11, Leader's Speech, Rowlane Farmhouse, March, 16th 1972
 
Law
Americans know that I have brought many young people from all over the world. I have read that the immigration officials say I'm violating immigration laws. Americans don't realize that God has declared war against the satanic power, and that it is not I who have called the youth from all over the world to the United States to fight, but God. I am the commander and you are the volunteer army summoned by God. If the American people don't realize this an persecute and obstruct you, they will be faced with perdition.

From MS-456, 2/16/75, Tarrytown,, New York February 16, 1975, Master Speaks, Speech On True Parents' Birthday.
 
Give Up Your Mind
First of all, mind must be offered on the alter through True Parents.
 
Page 10, Teaching Manual
 
Talent of "Blacks"
Father thinks about the three races, yellow, black, and white. Orientals can contribute in the spiritual aspect, white people can contribute in the analytical, scientific area, while black people can contribute in the physical area--physical educational development of physical fitness, the area of health....The talented area of black people is in this physical aspect.
 
From MS-432, 7/29/74, Barrytown, New York-July 29, 1974, Master Speaks, Address To Prayer and Fast Participants(I).
 
On sleep
In order for us to be able to do this would you prefer to sleep seven hours instead of six? (No.) We are used to sleeping, for instance, six hours. Would you prefer to sleep for seven hours or five hours? (Five.) Would you prefer to sleep four hours or five? (Four.) Would your prefer to go to work without sleeping? (Without sleeping.) I don't want you to die so I will let you sleep barely enough to sustain your life.
 
From MS-452, 9/22/74, Tarrytown, New York, September 22, 1974, Master Speaks, Where We Are Situated Now.
 
Ambition
Our motto this time is for each of the fundraising teams to earn $12,000.00 a month, a high goal....If I mobilize 1,000 members, each earning $10,000.00, then we will make three million dollars a month, which is a usable sum. I will train the fund-raising team to make at least $3,000.00. When I mobilize 10,000 members, it means $30 million n a month. Then we can buy Pan American Airlines, and the Empire State Building. We shall buy Ford Motor Company, not to speak of the Empire State Building. That's possible.

From MS-452, 9/22/74, Tarrytown, New York, September 22, 1974, Master Speaks, Where We Are Situated Now.
