Feuds a concern as children inherit Moon’s empire
GAPYEONG, South Korea – Unification Church patriarch Sun Myung Moon leaves behind children who have been groomed to lead a religious movement famous for its mass weddings and business interests – if family feuds don’t bring down the empire.
Moon, the charismatic and controversial founder of the church, died Monday at age 92 in a church-owned hospital near his home in Gapyeong County, northeast of Seoul, two weeks after being hospitalized with pneumonia, church officials said.
Flags flew at half-staff at a Unification Church in Seoul as followers trickled in, some wiping away tears as they wondered what would happen to a movement defined for decades by the man who founded it in 1954.
