United Press International article (UPI is an American news agency like AP but smaller, apparently owned by Moon)

Great to see some Amercan coverage, yes it is one of Moons. lol, I wonder if they'll ever mention Jeong used to be one of Moon's guys??

MMmmm, they called it the Jesus Morning Star cult, I don't think that name gets used much these days, but I just altered a few things on the homepage to help it appear on any such Internet search.

A couple more, all the same, but it's nice to see where the news is spreading and I love it when comments can be made:

SEOUL The leader of a South Korean-originated cult was arrested Friday by South Korean prosecutors on suspicion of sexually assaulting his female followers, KBS TV and other South Korean news media outlets reported.

And from the China Post Taiwan, good to see because the cult there has been pretty successful stiffling criticism:

"the raping is a rumour exaggerated and perverted"
Sounds like Pastor Bae Jae-yong let the cat out of the bag!

STORY: The South Korean leader of a fringe religious sect was forcibly
returned from China to Seoul on Wednesday (February 20) to face charges of
raping his female followers.
    Jung Myong-seok, 63, fled to China from South Korea in 2001 where he
had been charged with selecting followers from photographs and then forcing
them to have sex with him.
    He is the leader of JMS, also known as the Jesus Morning Star sect,
which was founded in 1980.
    He arrived at the international airport serving Seoul wearing a
baseball hat, surgical mask and cloth over his wrists that likely concealed
his handcuffs. Jung was escorted off the plane by prosecutors who placed him a
car on the tarmac that whisked him away.
    About a thousand of his followers gathered in the airport lobby to see
their leader's return.
    "The embezzlement charge is not based on truth and the raping is a
rumour exaggerated and perverted by groups who try to harm our leader. It is
totally different from the truth and the truth will be revealed after
prosecutor' investigation," said Pastor Bae Jae-yong, a JMS follower who
was waiting at the airport for his leader to out to the lobby.
    Jung was arrested in May 2007 in northeastern China, South Korea's
Justice Ministry said. It requested Chinese authorities to extradite Jung.
    South Korean media said JMS expanded into Japan under the name
"Setsuri", which means providence.
