(A SITE MAP is below this Introduction)

Updated January 14, 2021

This website explores the truth behind the HSA-UWC, known as the Unification Church (UC), which was rebranded as the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU) in 1996. In May 2020 the name of the organization was changed by Hak Ja Han (the Only Begotten Daughter of God) to the ‘Heavenly Parent’s Holy Community.’ One breakaway faction is that of Preston Hyun Jin Moon (Global Peace Foundation) and another is the Sanctuary Church of Sean Hyung-jin Moon and his brother, Justin Kook-jin Moon. Some insight into the succession dramas can be found HERE.

The book that started this website

The Tragedy of the Six Marys – the real Satan is Sun Myung Moon!! is a very significant book about the organization, which also reveals the sexual theology, sex rituals and adultery of the founder. An evolving translation of the whole book, from the Japanese, is on this website. The book was written by Chung-hwa Pak and first published in Japan in November 1993. It was drawn from his Korean manuscript which was enormous, consisting of about 6,000 pages; included were his conversations with Sun Myung Moon. Pak’s work is a valuable record for understanding the early history of the UC.

Hyo-min Eu later published the original Korean text of the Six Marys in March 1996. That edition was called An Unofficial History of the Unification Church. Sun Myung Moon attempted to block both books through legal means. He failed in both countries because the book was factual and Hyo-min Eu held the copyright to most of the photographs, which he himself had taken. Those historical photos are very revealing.

At least four other people contributed to the book, besides the main author Mr Pak. Hyo-min Eu, Shin-hee Eu, Deok-jin Kim and Myeong-hwan Tahk all also gave interviews to the press. A dozen or more magazine articles were published in Japan in the year of the publication of the book. See the Magazines menu on this website for translations of some of them. Those, and more magazines, are available on a Japanese language website.

All the testimonies, TV, radio and printed interviews were consistent with the content of the Six Marys book. Hyo-min Eu contributed his testimony to chapter 7. His sister, Shin-hee Eu, was the first woman to go on Japanese national TV to talk about her personal experience of a pikareum sex ritual with Sun Myung Moon. An interview with her is also in chapter 7. Since then other courageous women have spoken out, including Annie Choi (the mother of one of Moon’s illegitimate children, Sam Park).

Rev. Won Il Chei (a leading Presbyterian minister in Seoul): “If we believe those who have gone into this group and come out, they say that one has to receive Sun Myung Moon’s blood to receive salvation. That blood is ordinarily received by three periods of sexual intercourse.” (William J Petersen, 1975)

Sun Myung Moon with about 40 girls in the late 1950s. Many parents hated Moon and the Unification Church and did not want their daughters to be married by him to believers. There were angry demonstrations outside his first group weddings in 1960. Moon kept round-the-clock bodyguards.

What was Sun Myung Moon’s secret pikareum sex ritual?
In Korean pi = blood and kareum = separation. ‘Blood separation’ refers to dividing the blood from the ‘satanic blood’ introduced by the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. According to Sun Myung Moon, the fall was caused by the Archangel Lucifer seducing Eve in the spirit, and she in turn seduced Adam in the flesh. This sexual intercourse produced a bloodline tainted by the ‘original sin.’ All mankind allegedly carry this sinful, satanic blood.

Sun Myung Moon said that to reverse the illicit sex that caused the original sin, sexual intercourse had to be performed with a sinless man in a ritual called pikareum. The process is also called ‘womb cleansing’ – consequently no contraception should be used. He said Jesus was the second Adam and that he was the third and sinless Adam. He said that pikareum had to be done three times, with himself, to purify the women. This represented the three stages of ‘formation, growth and perfection.’ He also said that there had to be a witness for the process to be valid. The reason for the witness was to ‘remove the element of shame.’ This is because Adam and Eve hid from God in their shame at having ‘fallen.’

Sun Myung Moon personally performed pikareum with all the wives of the first 36 couples which he ‘blessed’ in marriage (the detailed theological justification is here), as well as every wife from the 72 couples. Those couples all became known as Moon’s tribe, or ‘the Royal Couples’ from the ‘Holy Weddings.’ Purified men and women had a duty to restore others in a ‘sex relay.’

In the Moon church (and Sanctuary Church) today a very similar expression, ‘change of blood lineage,’ is used. The words are slightly different but the meaning is the same. When Sun Myung Moon’s mass marriages became too large, he introduced the ‘three day ceremony’ which symbolized pikareum. The couples themselves had to do three days of ritual sex in different positions. (It has been reported by a number of people that Moon had sex with representative virgin wives of each mass wedding. It is not known when he stopped doing this.)

Sun Myung Moon started his sex rituals in Pyongyang in 1946 and was soon arrested on “morals charges.” In 1948 he was again arrested for “disturbing the social order with women.” He was sent to Heungnam prison for five years for that, and for bigamy (ref. ‘Sun Myung Moon bigamy’ in Los Angeles Times). In 1948 Sun Myung Moon was also excommunicated by the Presbyterian Church of Korea which “ruled the Unification Church as heretical for three reasons: (1) Sun Myung Moon has placed himself, more than Jesus Christ, as the object of faith; (2) their doctrine violated the morals of modern society; and (3) they would destroy the church by deceiving pure and sincere Christians.” (William J Petersen, 1975)

▲ Unification Church members 劉景圭 유경규 Yoo Kyoung-kyu and 黄煥菜 황환채 Hwang Hwan-chae (later he was one of the 36 couples) witness at Ewha Womans University in 1955. They had both joined as students at the nearby Yonsei University in Seoul. The main building of the Ewha campus is behind them. Ewha was supported by the Methodist Church of the US.

There was a sex scandal at the Ewha Womans University in Seoul in 1955. Many students became involved in the UC and in sex rituals with Sun Myung Moon (FBI report), as did five university professors – who were all then dismissed.

A couple of years after the scandal these students and professors, who had mostly been expelled from their universities, gathered for a reunion with Sun Myung Moon outside the Cheongpa-dong church in Seoul. Professor Won-bok Choi is on the right. There is a quote from her below. Of the students who are standing, the fifth from the left (wearing a light grey jacket) is Soon-wha Choi who bore a son for Moon called Sam Park.

A dozen original Korean newspaper reports from the time can be found HERE. The sex charges could not be proven due to the reluctance and embarrassment of witnesses to speak out. Sun Myung Moon had also been charged with confining and starving a female Yonsei university student (Soon-shil Choi) for three days in order to convert her.

From the extensive investigations and interviews the police had carried out, they knew very well that Sun Myung Moon and other church leaders were guilty of the ‘sex relays.’ Church leader Hyo-min Eu said: “One interrogator had a diagram on the table which showed the relationships between Moon and the female church members. I was in awe of how accurate the interrogator was.” Mr Eu continued “The police knew quite accurately about Moon’s relationships with the women and that he was guilty, but neither the women themselves nor their husbands filed charges against Moon. Therefore they could not indict him. … The main point of the July 4, 1955 case was not about military service evasion, but it was to uncover the promiscuous sexual conduct hidden deep in the Unification Church. It wasn’t a “case with unfounded allegations” as the Unification Church claims it was. The Unification Church narrowly escaped the facts of its leader’s promiscuous sexual relationships being exposed to the public.”

Sun Myung Moon was jailed for two years on charges of falsifying his age by six years to avoid the Korean military draft. Four other UC leaders were sentenced and jailed for 18-24 months on similar charges as detailed in the newspapers.

Sun Myung Moon’s followers bought his freedom in October, which was not difficult in those days if you could raise sufficient funds. He had been in jail since July 4, 1955. He was quietly released. Some of the other leaders were released in the middle of the night. There was never any ambiguity about their guilt for evasion of military draft through falsifying legal documents. Sun Myung Moon admitted in court that he had raised his age.

September 21, 1955, 동아일보 Dong-a Ilbo. UC leaders standing before the judge in Seoul District Court No. 4. Sun Myung Moon is marked with an ‘X’. The article states: “The court was jam-packed with many women who seemed to be ‘Unification Church’ believers. … Defendant Moon did admit that he had raised his age.” All the charges are listed in the above article. (Translation here.)

Who were the ‘Six Marys’?
They were six married women who Sun Myung Moon had sex with, one after the other, to perform “sex evangelism” According to Mr Chung-hwa Pak’s book, the reason was Moon’s peculiar interpretation of Christianity. Eve had sex with Satan and so all mankind became descendants of the devil. The mission of Jesus Christ was to take Eve back from Satan who had stolen her from God. To do this Christ must have sexual intercourse, pikareum, with six married women, including Mary – Jesus’ own mother. But Jesus Christ left this world having failed to save even one married woman by doing pikareum with them. So God sent Sun Myung Moon to earth as the third Adam. His mission was to cleanse the blood of six married women, namely the Six Marys. This was to be done by pikareum with Moon three times. Through a kind of relay sex with these Marys, humankind could be cleansed and saved and brought back to God’s side for the first time. It was Moon who preached this “Principle” to Mr. Pak. (This explanation comes from a magazine interview Mr Pak gave to a famous Japanese politician. LINK to magazine )

In the early days Sun Myung Moon often dismissed ‘Marys’ and inducted new ones. (Compare the two photos below.) He unceremoniously threw out many women who then realized they had lost their dignity and all their money. Their husbands and children usually rejected them for their involvement with Sun Myung Moon. (A few women remained under the spell of Moon until the day they died. At least one could not face her losses and committed suicide.)

Nansook Hong: “I do know that my brothers and sisters and I were luckier than some children. Some of the Reverend Moon’s followers simply left their sons and daughters in orphanages in order to preach the word. A few never returned for them.”
In the Shadow of the Moons, page 35

Two groups of ‘Six Marys’ with Sun Myung Moon in the mid 1950s. He threw out some women and inducted others.

▼ This ten minute video was part of a Japanese TV news item about the publication of the book in 1993. It was a national event and the book required three further print runs in the first month. The Korean newspaper article shown in the video reads “He posed as the son of God. There are many women who have been sexually abused. The behavior of Moon, the leader of the Unification Church, continues to attract attention.”

Professor James Huntley Grayson:
“In July 1955, Moon was imprisoned for gross immorality, but was subsequently released.”
… “As one of the most important functions of the Lord of the Second Advent is the physical restoration of mankind, Moon selects suitable marital partners for the faithful and conducts sacred ceremonies of marriage in large groups. It should be noted with regard to the purging of physical sin that Moon has been accused of acts of gross immorality which are denied by church authorities.” Korea – A Religious History
 (2002) pages 210-11

Chung-hwa Pak:
 “Thanks to the members in Seoul, who out of desperation committed perjury and frantically moved or destroyed evidence, [Moon] was said to be acquitted. But the facts had roots. He would otherwise have had a long prison sentence.”

Professor Won-bok Choi (UC/FFWPU member): “I can so vividly recollect all that took place in those days. As you can well imagine, negative parents filed a court case. We were under government investigation; the established churches called us heretics out of sheer jealousy and the Education Ministry branded us as a dangerous religious cult. And Father [Sun Myung Moon] was sought for arrest.” March 1976 LINK

The cover photograph was taken on May 3, 1954, the actual day the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity was founded. (See the date written on the photo. The date was later changed to May 1 by Sun Myung Moon.) HSA-UWC was commonly known as the Unification Church. Mr Pak is standing at the back on the far left. Shin-hee Eu is front right and her brother, Hyo-min Eu, is standing second from the right in the back row. Their cousin, Hyo-won Eu, is standing at the back directly behind Sun Myung Moon.

Important information about the translation to English on this website

When the translation from Mr Pak’s original Korean document to Japanese was made in Tokyo, in a matter of weeks, just prior to publication in 1993, some details that were in the original Korean draft were omitted, or they were added to the later Korean edition.

While working on the translation for this website the Korean text has occasionally been referenced alongside the Japanese and some details have been re-integrated. Hyo-min Eu, who organized the publication of the Korean edition, added information to his own testimony.

The full text for the Korean edition, which was the original language of the book, has been available on the internet for some years.

The translation of this book from the Japanese edition is a work in progress. A few years ago the whole book was translated from the Korean by a paid translator. However, their work omitted approximately 50-60% of the text, including many names. The work of reviewing everything is being done – mainly from the Japanese – by volunteers.

All of chapter 7 and the first half of chapter 4, and other parts of that chapter, have been re-translated in a collaborative effort with both native English and Japanese speakers. The table of contents and all photo captions have also been done.

There is another book with Pak Chung-hwa’s name on the cover.

It was called: I Am A Traitor – At that time Satan possessed me! and was published by the Unification Church of Japan in January 1996.

Mr Pak died on March 26, 1997. Earlier that month he said, “rather than ‘I am a Traitor,’ the facts stated in ‘The Tragedy of the Six Marys – the real Satan is Sun Myung Moon!!’ bear witness to the truth.”

A comparison of the two books can be found HERE.
