Sun Myung Moon hospitalised
Tue, 21 Aug 2012 2:21p.m.
Unification Church founder the Rev Sun Myung Moon is being treated in an intensive-care unit at a hospital in Seoul for pneumonia.
Douglas Burton is a US-based spokesman for the church. He says he received a memo about Moon's hospitalisation early Wednesday. The memo says the 93-year-old Moon "was pushing his limits in carrying out his schedule" when he fell ill. It says his wife and children are by his bedside.
Moon is a self-proclaimed messiah. He founded the Unification Church in Seoul in 1954. The church gained fame starting in the 1970s for holding mass weddings of thousands of followers.
Its business empire includes The Washington Times newspaper and the New Yorker Hotel in Manhattan.

The Testimony of Nansook Hong; the Providential Affairs of Rev. MoonA Quote From "Shadow Of The Moons" Book:The quote below shows that Hyo Jin Moon, Rev. Moon and Mrs. Moon, all have admitted that the elder Rev. Moon had an adulterous affair,but that it was "God's Will", Nan Sook saysProvidential Adultery? ( Nansook Hong speaks )"I trusted Hyo Jin who said 'I know what I'm allowed to do.' He never even gave me a hint that I would be falling with him," Annie would write me later. "Madelene told me some story about Father (Sun Myung Moon) having a relationship outside of Mother (Hak Ja Han Moon) and a son being born. This was later confirmed to me by Hyo Jin and Jin Sung Nim.~I went directly to Mrs. Moon with Hyo Jin's claims. She was both furious and tearful. She had hoped that such pain would end with her, that it would not be passed on to the next generation, she told me. No one knows the pain of a straying husband like True Mother, she assured me. I was stunned. We had all heard rumors for years about Sun Myung Moon's affairs and the children he sired out of wedlock, but here was True Mother confirming the truth of those stories.~ I told her that Hyo Jin said his sleeping around was "providential", and inspired by God, just as Father's affairs were. "No. Father is the Messiah, not Hyo Jin. What Father did was in God's plan." His infidelity was part of her course to suffer to become the True Mother. "There is no excuse for Hyo Jin to do this." she said.~Mrs. Moon told Father what Hyo Jin was claiming and the Reverend Moon summoned me to his room. What happened in his past was "providential" Father reiterated. It has nothing to do with Hyo Jin. I was embarrassed to be hearing this admission from him directly.
