Rev. Moon dies at 92

The Rev. Sun Myung Moon

was a self-proclaimed messiah who built a global business empire. He

called both North Korean leaders and American presidents his friends,

but spent time in prisons in both countries. His followers around the

world cherished him, while his detractors accused him of brainwashing

recruits and extracting money from worshipers.
