Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

06/27/2005: Moon Over New York...

”As several polls reveal Americans' growing discontent over the war in Iraq, tens of thousands are expected to flock to venues in New York, Washington DC, Chicago and Los Angeles to support the Reverend Sun Myung Moon challenge Christians, Muslims and Jews to overcome their differences, promote inter-religious dialogue, and work as "Ambassadors for Peace" in the Middle East and the world.

The four-day, four-city tour, entitled "Now is God's Time" launches in New York's Jacob Javits Convention Center on Saturday, June 25. The next day, the coast-to-coast tour makes its second stop in Washington, DC, and moves to Chicago on Monday, June 27. The tour's final stop will be in Los Angeles on Tuesday, June 28. An estimated 50,000 people are expected to attend the four events; thousands more will participate by satellite link.

"Now is God's Time," says Moon, 85. "He cannot be satisfied with only spiritual progress. I have promised Him that I will bring His children together as one. Heaven cannot tolerate religious and ethnic divisions any longer."

This is the latest in a series of efforts by Moon, who has worked diligently with spiritual leaders from a variety of denominations and faiths worldwide. During 2004 he assembled 11,000 religious and civic leaders in Israel and Palestine as "Ambassadors for Peace," including 1,300 ordained clergy from the U.S., and 2,200 from Europe, Asia and Africa. Delegates met with Israeli and Arab leaders, and conducted community service projects in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Bethlehem, Haifa and other cities. They joined hands in prayer services, on peace walks, reconciliation ceremonies, and conducted other demonstrations of unity and faith. Special delegations went to Gaza to dialogue with Palestinian leaders at the grassroots level and see, firsthand, the tragic circumstances of the Palestinian people….”

Yikes, A reprise of the Rev. Moon in New York City.

[And I have to admit I DO actually know someone who is a member of their group and was married in one of those arranged marriages – yet still is apparently happily-so even all these years later –meebe 25 yrs so far. But that's a story for another day.]
