Slang originating in the 1970's for a member of the Unification church aka WorldCARP, created by Rev. Sun Myung Moon. He claims to be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ and equal to God. Moonies often target young, clean, ambitious people for their cult. They often use shady practices but claim innocent motives (world peace, anti-communism, etc).


Fast Facts:

They control over financial 1000 organizations around the world including the Washington Times.

Sun Myung Moon is highly superstitious, and uses psychics and occultic rituals for guidance.

Marriages are often arranged, and are sometimes used for people to gain citizenships in other countries. Newlywed couples are even told what positions to use for sex.

Moon wants to establish a New World Order and believes Koreans are the divine race.

"The whole world is in my hand, I will conquer and subjugate the world."
(Sun Myung Moon, Master Speaks, May 17, 1973)
These moonies keep asking me if I want to take a "survey", why don't they just leave me alone already!?

They fundraise everywhere to hold speeches and rallies and to donate...ALOT.

Much like a selfie. You take a picture showing your face, except it shows part or all of your ass in the photo. Usually using a mirror. Post it on Facebook statuses and such for tons of humour.
