AR-15 armed religious group MAGA buys 130-acre holy retreat in Tennessee for $ 460,000

A pro-Trump religious group, led by Pastor Hyung-jin “Sean” Moon, who uses AR-15 rifles in ceremonies, purchased a 130-acre holy retreat in Tennessee.

“Spiritual download”: Moon heads services at Rod of Iron Ministries, also known as the Sanctuary of World Peace and Unification, while wearing a crown of metal bullets and a gold rifle.

  • In a recent broadcast of Moon’s “King’s Report”, he said the nearly half a million dollar property in Tennessee is similar to a spiritual retreat in Cheongpyeong, a city in South Korea, and made him feel a “spiritual download.”

  • “Many, many, many buses full of people will come and pray there and liberate the ancestors,” he said.

  • Moon went on to say that he plans to build a theological school, an elementary school and an incubator for future “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) politicians on the property.

  • In addition to attracting ordinary MAGA supporters, Movement architect and former Trump adviser Steve Bannon and ex-NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch took to the stage at the group’s Freedom Festival last weekend, according to the Independent.

“Ansu”: Moon’s religious organization is a spinoff of the Unification Church, which was founded by his late father, Reverend Sun-myung Moon, a self-proclaimed messiah whose followers were known as “Moonies.”

  • Elder Moon has held ansu liberation workshops in Cheongpyeong, South Korea, where former church members claim to have endured physical and spiritual abuse for weeks.

  • “There will be no ‘ansu’ activity,” said Timothy Elder, director of global missions. VICE News. “We have no intention of repeating these excesses on Tennessee property.”

  • The Tennessee property acquired by Rod of Iron Ministries sold for $ 460,000 on Zillow.
