The Words of the Sun Myung Moon from 2012
Hyun Jin Nim came to Chung Pyung today. No one stopped him from going to visit Father. However, he chose to turn around and return.
The Kwak Group arrived in the morning with five buses. Hyun Jin Nim was in a sedan sandwiched between the second and third buses.
(A Note to Those Who Say We Shouldn't Call Them the "Kwak Group": Chung Hwan Kwak was on board the lead bus.)
As soon as the buses arrived, a staff member from the Seonghwa Organizing Committee boarded each bus and told the passengers: "You can pay your respects at the Peace World Center, just like everyone else." They were told that Hyun Jin Nim and his wife could proceed to the Cheon Jeong Gung. Equal treatment with everyone else was not good enough for the Kwak Group, however. They insisted that they all be allowed to proceed to the Cheong Jeong Gung to view Father directly. For everyone else, the chance of getting to see Father's Holy Body is less than one in ten. The Kwak Group, however, demanded a 100 percent chance.
They were again told that Hyun Jin Nim and his wife could proceed directly to Cheong Jeong Gung to see Father, but the others would have to follow the established procedure.
So they got off the bus and announced they would all walk to Cheon Jeong Gung. Fortunately, our ministers were able to talk them out of this foolhardy action. So they held a short demonstration, got back in their buses and left. Hyun Jin Nim left with them.
They were clearly informed that they would be welcomed in the Peace World Center. They chose to leave without paying their respects to Father there.
Hyun Jin Nim was given full opportunity to proceed to Cheong Jeong Gung. He chose not to go.
True Father's Seonghwa events proceeded today without further disruption from the Kwak Group. In the room with Father in the Cheon Jeong Gung, I noticed a lot more non-Korean and non-Japanese faces. I saw a few familiar faces, but it wasn't a situation where we could exchange greetings.
