This latest Sun Myung Moon thing is just too weird, but better still are some of his quotes:
In the spirit of yin-yang duality, Washington Times owner Rev. Moon calls the penis the convex organ and the vagina the concave. From a 2000 speech railing against loose women (in which he also lays out his his U.N. plans):"If a couple exists with that individualism, then the concave organ should be sealed with concrete."
Ouch. From a 2001 speech."A woman's reproductive organ is concave, like the wide-open mouth of a poisonous snake with fangs"
"As a man, in your right front pants pocket is a small inside watch pocket. Keep pliers there, and when you go to the bathroom, once a day, pinch your love organ. Cut the skin a little bit as a warning. If your love organ does not listen to your conscience, then you should cut off the tip. Even if it takes that extreme measure, we have to make sure our mind and body become one. We were told to love our enemy. What is our enemy? Our lineage and love organ. Love your enemy."
