Moon arranges mass marriages. Soros is for legalization of drugs. Moon a fruitcake who believes he is son of god; Soros know that with all his money he can buy god.

Mass marriages performed by Rev. Moon.

April 16, 1960 , 3 couples
February 8, 1975 , 1800 couples
August 25, 1992 , 30000 couples
August 25, 1995 , 360000 couples
June 13, 1998, 130000000 couples

Any of George's projects have a ROI like this? Especially for a dying institution. I've always been a contrarian, myself.

So George can buy Rev. Moon? Can Rev. Moon marry George? We can't play paper scissors rock here without a third contendah.

If we must have a third contender let me nominate Richard Mellon Scaife and his theory of the supremacy of the Aryan white male fundamentalist Christian and his long term willingness to finance that dream. No Mudbloods there.

Note that Moon most definitely doesn't represent mainstream evangelical Christianity; fundies soundly reject him as an "out-there" cultist. Moon is also the reason I take any links to the Washington Times with heaping spoonsful of salt, though I see the linked blogger already has that issue well in hand.

Moon & Soros....Two freaking megalomaniacs the United States and the world could do without.

Funny, one might say the same of Bush and Cheney. ;)

Did I say Bush and Cheney? I meant Saddam and Osama. Yeah.

It's an easy mistake to make.
