Hey, Kids! That's US Congressman Davis, who thought that he was driving in England this week, got ticket and tossed the race card, standing fourth from the left of Danny's True Parent ( there's the Missus Moon and the two kids I believe), Rev. Moon, Bible Applicator and Sushi Slinger.
Here's US CONGRESSMAN Danny Davis about to crown True Parent as Messiah in 2004 - them white gloves probably cost more than the moving violation Danny Davis is trying to beat. Hey, how does Danny Davis stand on all that old seperation of Church and State Whatnot? He's an Ace Progressive!
Danny Davis tossed the race card - again - to beat a ticket. The globe trotting U.S. Congressman and pal of the Tamil Tigers thought Kedzie was a cobble stone street in Surrey, or Sussex, or Sutherland across the foamy brine, where Britons of all colors drive on the opposite side of the road.
Instead of eating the ticket, like any normal citizen, Danny Davis went on the cheap and tossed the dog-eared and well worn race card. Come Danny. Do what any 'close-knit ethnic,' HDO connected, Asian Big Ticket DNC, 'rich Jew,' or normal black American teenager does when he screws the public pooch - Go have Dad bail you out.
In 2004, you crowned the biggest Daddy in public religion and commerce - The Reverend Sun Myung Moon. The man owns every bite of sushi sold in America. Pick of the phone and give old Dad shout. He'll keep that $75 (Buckos) tucked in your vest.
More than a dozen lawmakers attended a congressional reception this year honoring the Rev. Sun Myung Moon in which Moon declared himself the Messiah and said his teachings have helped Hitler and Stalin be "reborn as new persons."
At the March 23 ceremony in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Rep. Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.) wore white gloves and carried a pillow holding an ornate crown that was placed on Moon's head. The Korean-born businessman and religious leader then delivered a long speech saying 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 Savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent."
Here's what old Danny Davis' Pops thinks ( quite a guy BTW) - Danny I'm sure The True Parent will spring for the Six Bits:
This year, claiming instructions from the True Father himself, Unificationists announced that a new stage had begun in the raising of Cheon Il Guk ( or heaven on earth). Believing that the crucifix could be the last obstacle keeping America from accepting Moon as the messiah, they have held conferences across the country with banners reading "Tear Down the Walls/Who is Rev. Moon?" culminating in a final crucifix-burying ceremony. Moon's Family Federation for World Peace Web site describes the inspiration as a vision that the True Father first made public last year at the 20th anniversary party of his Washington Times. (The speech, in which Moon said, "The Washington Times will become the instrument in spreading the truth about God to the world," sent many reporters to the bar for a drink, the Post reported.)(Again from Salon)
But while Moon's anti-cross rhetoric would surely turn off many of his friends on the religious right, he remains invisible in the media. Even though his rhetoric far surpasses Louis Farrakhan's in vitriol towards Jews and gays, he goes unnoticed by groups like the ADL, whose Web site highlights the Nation of Islam as a hate group, while its only mention of Moon comes in a warning about the violent threats of extremist rabbi Meir Kahane (who in 1976 "declared war" on Moon missionaries, vowing none "would walk the street safely").
Disciples insist it is a mistake to take Moon's words literally, out of the context of the broader Divine Principle. They hasten to add that the massive archives of speeches online are hastily written translations and are trustworthy only in the original Korean.
But at his Unification.net FAQ, webmaster Damian Anderson warns of any politically correct dilution of, for example, Moon's attack on Jews.
"The fact is that the Jewish people committed a grievous sin in rejecting the Lord, and the world is today committing a grievous sin in rejecting the Lord," he writes. "I will not water down what Father said to please liberal constituencies within his own church."
Within his church, his entreaties to cherish and punish your "love organ" (with pliers if necessary, he suggested in 2001) manage to find an audience. On Blessed Children World, an online message board for kids of Unification families, there is much discussion of church beliefs. "I hate gay people," one B.C. observes. Other B.C.'s ask whether it's a sin to go to the prom and debate a church doctrine that rape victims are considered impure. "Kill yourself before you ARE raped," one posts. "Bite out your tongue and choke on your own blood if you need to. (No joke, that was in Father's speech from some time ago). Anyhow, I know it sounds totally NAZI of us to say/think/believe such things..."
That frank admission has since been deleted from a Nov. 1, 2002, message thread titled "I cannot accept rape = fall," in which other posts contend sexual purity is "worth dying for." But the sentiment, at least, seems to be supported by Moon's speeches.
"If someone is trying to invade you, you would rather kill yourself than go through the fall. At least you won't go to hell that way ... this means love comes before life," he told an audience in 1992. For at all costs, women in Moon's view must not reenact the primal wrong, the perversion Moon sees as responsible for the Fall. "There is nothing more important than the new lineage."
Danny's Dad believes! Yep, and Danny behaves accordingly!
