Reverend Sun Myung Moon Dies

Rev. Sun Myung Moon, controversial founder of the Unification Church, died Monday local time in a hospital near Seoul, South Korea. AP reports that the 92-year old religious leader died of pneumonia.  The Unification Church claims to have 3 million members worldwide, but critics dispute that figure.  It also has acquired extensive business interests, including the Washington Times (which has an extensive article on Rev. Moon's life) and Connecticut's University of Bridgeport.
