Are you talking about the church or the businesses? You make it sound like the church paid for it. I doubt you even care though as you probably have no idea how they are different.
According to the NY Times article and other things I have heard privately, the church sure paid some of the cost. Is there really a difference between companies controlled by Yoo and the church? They were all entities controlled by him.
Why would they buy items from a no-name asian photographer who doesn't have a face when they can have much more valuable and famous items available within a walking's distance? It's clearly from the photos. Would the Louvre's reputation have influence over their purchase? Let me ask you a question... when you visit the Louvre, do you buy a no name artist's work because the Louvre hosts it?
Some people likes the photos. So what? Would they have bought them if AHAE Inc. hadn't deliberately withheld AHAE's real name and criminal past? Yes people would buy a "no-name" artist's work because it is hosted at The Louvre. Although I would be curious to learn how many other unknown artists got one of their first breaks at The Louvre. You can't be unaware of The Louvre's reputation. That was precisely why AHAE In. decided to involve The Louvre in the scam. The obvious hope was that The Louvre's reputation and prestige would rub off on the photos. Reputation by association.
Again, it's really quite simple, AHAE Inc, did buy off the Louvre. It's not about hating the Louvre. It's about criticizing their actions in selling exhibition spaces to a certain "no-name" photographer who later turned out to be a convicted fraudster. Egg on face. Did Michael Nyman know he was dedicating his 6th Symphony to Yoo Byeung-eun? His management seems to be in panic mode, so I guess he didn't.
In regards to Mr. Yoo and family refusing to show up, I already explained to you what happened in 1991. Mr. Yoo appeared confidently upon the prosecutor's request during the height of the Odaeyang incident. What happened? Did they charge him for the Odaeyang deaths? No, but they sure did make it look that way and that misconception still lives today. He was also convicted for a crime he did not commit. Why would you repeat the same thing again according to their plans?
Because turning himself in would have at least saved those that were arrested for helping him while a fugitive. Was he so utterly uncaring about them? Pawns to be used. You'd expect more from a guy who isn't a cult leader, and exactly those actions from a man who is.
Becoming a fugitive may be a good idea in movies like The Fugitive, but in real life, it's never a good idea. And in this case, it was a decision that cost Yoo his life and the freedom of some of his followers. Still think it was the right move? If you know where Keith Yoo is, the biggest favor you can do for him is to notify the FBI.
Really, I find no merit with these pointless arguments with you...
Well I certainly enjoy reading your "justifications" and I enjoy responding to them. I agree it can seem
pointless at times, but I don't think it is pointless. Perhaps others are enjoying reading our exchanges and perhaps learning something from our exchanges. However, I do think that questions from former members are more pertinent and more important, so perhaps your time would be better spent responding to their questions, in particular Judge's recent questions which he repeated in the above post because he didn't get a response the first time he posted them.
