JMS Fronts: The Bright Smile Movement
« on: April 24, 2017, 07:06:25 AM »
Here are a few references to The Bright Smile Movement, which is often listed a JMS front. Here's its homepage and the accompanying Facebook page is

Note: The screenshot below was taken from its earlier page:

The Bright Smile Movement is affiliated to the Global Association of Culture and Peace, which is said to have 40 branches around the world, including in Taiwan.

GACP was the JMS cult's most visible front group from around the year 2000 to 2006 when all of its sites went offline. While an affiliation with a front like GACP could be innocent and the result of your typical cult deceptive practices, it does seem to be an organisation that is often linked to JMS. I don't have anything really groundbreaking to share, other than the fact I found some interesting references to it from around the time of the 2002 Soccer World Cup. Since Korea is hosting the 2018 Winter Olympics, I'm wondering if the cult's activities in 2002 will be repeated.

Perhaps the clearest indication of current links is the fact that those who have liked the Bright Smile Facebook have also liked other JMS sites. Certainly some of the people who have liked posts on that page are obvious JMS members. If it is still a JMS front - and I have no doubt it is, it is quite disturbing seeing how many young people populate its photos and events.
