Anti-LGBT cult leader calls on followers to purchase assault rifles

Hyung Jin Moon, who leads the Sanctuary Church in Newfoundland, Pennsylvania, and is known as “True Father” and “Second King” to his followers, issued a literal call to arms to members of his anti-LGBT sect last month.

Sanctuary Church members “have been asked by the King to participate in the ceremony on 28th February with a crown and a ‘rod of iron’ (AR 15 or AK style weapon),” a press release on the cult’s website reads. “Attending the blessing, either with an AR15 or alike or without, is valid, but to attend with an AR15 would be a substantial ‘perfection stage’ blessing.”

The Sanctuary Church, which also calls itself Rod of Iron Ministries, is a splinter offshoot of the Unification Church, or “Moonies,” founded by the late Sun Myung Moon in the 1950s. According to cult expert Steve Hassan, himself a member of the Unification Church in the 1970s, the Unification Church’s ideology is racist, homophobic and antisemitic.

At a ceremony in 2008, Sun Myung Moon transferred leadership of the Unification Church to his youngest son, Hyung Jin Moon. After Sun Myung Moon died in 2012, a power struggle erupted between Hyung Jin Moon and his mother, Hak Ja Han, who ordered Hyung Jin to go to Korea.

Hyung Jin refused, and instead relocated to Newfoundland, Pennsylvania and founded the Sanctuary Church with the support of his older brother, Kook Jin Moon. Hyung Jin declared the Unification Church invalid since his father’s death, and continued to espouse his father’s teachings while declaring himself the “Second King,” after his father. Kook Jin also relocated his firearms manufacturing company, Kahr Arms, to a nearby county in Pennsylvania.
