Milingo admits Moonie support for schismatic group

“Excommunicated prelate admits “Moonie” support”

Excommunicated Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo has admitted that he is receiving financial help from a Korean sect for his campaign against the celibacy requirement in the Roman Catholic Church.

At a weekend conference in New Jersey, organized by the group he calls Married Priests Now, the Zambian prelate distributed a statement acknowledging that the group is funded by the Unification Church, led by Rev. Sun Myung Moon. The archbishop—who participated in a mass-marriage ceremony led by the Korean religious leader in 2001—said that Moon has now “dedicated his key organizations to give their utmost support in every way needed to Married Priests Now.”
